The formula for present value of single sum:
PV = FV / (1+i)n
PV = present value
FV = future value
i = interest rate per compounding period
n = number of compounding periods
As can be seen in the formula, solving for PV of single sum is same as solving for principal in compound interest calculation. In other words, you can use this calculator as a reverse compound interest calculator.
