Working on a new Investment/Loan Graph

Does it make sense? Does it do the calcs correctly? Any suggestions?

Hi MIF;

Very nice looking interface. So far it is doing everything correct.

hi MathsIsFun,

I'm confused. Raw? PV NPV etc ?

I looked at your interest and compound interest pages and so I think PV means 'present value'.

But you used FV for 'future value', so what is NPV ?

And why is the 2000 negative ? Does that mean it is a loan rather than an investment ?

Maybe a key to the terminology is needed. (Well, it is for dummies like me )
