Abstract: The time value of money (NM) concepts often receive more attention in introductory finance courses than do other topics. Textbook solutions to time value of money problems usually instruct students to solve for the number of periods to the closest year However, the NM tables In textbooks show solutions for whole periods only. For this reason, these tables are often inadequate for solving some practical problems.
