I have the 1992 version of "Mathematica by Example"
page 210 shows a formula for the following. If P dollars are invested for t years
at an annual interest rate of r% compounded m times per year, the compounded amount, A(t) = P(1 + r/m)^mt. sounds like future worth to me. Examples follow
on pages 211 to 227.
hope that helps.
