Calculate the total value from original value, growth rate and time periods with this Compound Growth Calculator.

### How do you calculate compound growth?

To find the compound growth of a number use this compound growth formula:

Total Value = a(1+r)^{x}

a=Original Amount

r = Interest Rate per Period(in decimal form)

x = Number of Periods

Example: Compound growth on 50 over 25 periods at 5% growth rate per period:

a=50

r=5% or .05

x=25

Calculated out, this gives us... 50(1+.05)^{25} = 169.32

Since compound growth is used a lot in finance, we can do the same thing with dollars and interest rates.

$50 over 25 years at an annual interest rate of 5%

$169.32
