Formula for calculating the rate of interest of a lump sum

Assuming present value, future value and the number of years is known, the annual rate of interest can be computed as follows:

$$r=m ×\left(\left(\frac{FV}{PV}\right)^{\frac{1}{nm}}-1\right)$$


m is the compounding frequently (yearly, semi-annually, quarterly, monthly, weekly or daily

FV is the future value of the lump sum

PV is the present value of the lump sum

Proof of the rate of interest of lump sum formula

We can proof that the formula of annual rate of interest rate of using the future value of lump sum formula.

We know that FV is calculated as follow:


To obtain the formula for rate of interest, we simply make r the subject of the formula


First, we divide both side by PV


Next, we multiply the power of both sides by $\frac{1}{nm}$


Now, let's substract one from both sides


Finally, we multiply both sides by m
