      Hi Rich, just use your calculator. Can you show your calculation to see why you’re getting a different number?

    When I work this out I do not get $300. I put in the calculator 200×1.06=212. And then I do 212 x 7= 1484 which is not $300. Where am I going wrong?

    Hi Jordy, if you don’t have a scientific calculator, you first do 1.06 raised to the 7… this will equal 1.504. Multiply original 200 x 1.504 = 300.72

    Great instructional video man! Informative with just a dash of humor. This video along with the other really helped me understand all that financial “bullshit” that gets thrown around.
    Keep up the good work!

    I am new to this financial accounting
    1.06 raised to the 7… this will equal 1.504
    did you multiply 1.06 x 7 ? or divide

    • David

      Reply Reply 28 December 2012

      Hey Meguell, you have to use the exponent function on your scientific calculator, not multiply nor divide.

    And other way is multiple the results seven times on a simple calculator. Using Excel, setup the first cells, then copied to the seventh level. Name the the spreadsheet “Compound Interest Calculator”. Then, in the future, just change the starting capital (PV) & Interest Rate (r) & let the calculator give the answer. Also, in Excel, use the exponential if you know how to use it. It you need beyond 7 years, just copy the last cell to the desired end year. Online, there are already compound interest calculators with just enter data & get results. Thank you MBABullshit because it shows what I have suspected. MBAs are all theory & grooming for executive status without learning how to ‘make money work for you’ when the executive loses the job or cannot get a job to pay back the student loan. Academia does not want the truth out because people will get smart about making money without spending 200,000 on an education that enslaves the student for the first ten working years.

      @Hadi: No need for all caps, and I normally don’t approve all-cap comments. Anyway, if you were given a time-limited offer for all the ebooks (97 instead of $400 for all the ebooks) and it expired for you, then it’s no longer available for you, sorry. The video plan is also 97, which gives you access to the entire video library for 1 month, both premium and free videos found here: https://mbabullshit.com/entrepreneur/finance-videos-2/ If you are interested about it (completely your choice) you can learn more here: https://mbabullshit.com/blog/video-plan-151125/
