RATE FUNCTION IN EXCEL:

• Summary.
• Get the annuity's interest rate each period.
• The interest rate is calculated on a period-by-period basis.
• RATE = (nper, pmt, pv, [fv], [type], [guess])

FV evaluates the future value of an investment using a constant interest rate as one of the financial functions. FV can be used to make regular, consistent payments or a single lump sum payment. To calculate the future value of a sequence of payments, use the Excel Formula Coach.

The lower the PV and the greater the FV, the higher the interest rate. For the number of periods, the same relationships apply. If the PV remains constant, the FV will increase as time passes or as interest is accrued every period, and vice versa.
