In summary, the conversation discusses using various equations and calculations to determine the future cash flow needed in order to achieve a desired cash rate. There is a suggestion to work backwards to find the solution, but the use of rounding values may make it difficult to achieve an exact result. The conversation also notes the difference between using percentages and decimal values when representing the interest rate.

Hi Friends,

I have x gross amount a = 1739598, Rate of interest R = 5%, and day difference d = 1. Future cash flow f = 176100

now npv = f/(1+r)^(d/360) i.e. 176100/(1+0.05)^(1/360) = 176076.135095

PA = a - npv i.e. 1739598 - 176076.135095 = 1563521.8649 round off value 1563522

rate CR = (PA/A)*100 i.e. (1563521.8649/1739598)*100 = 89.8783512053% round off 89.88%

Now i want to find the Future Cash flow f so that my CR rate will be exactly 89.00%

Note: 0.05 * 100 = 5 = 500% not 5%
Note: 0.05 = 5%

Have you considered working backwards?

However, your multiple uses of "round off value" suggest that it may not be possible. It is no longer a continuous process when you do that.

0.8900000 = What / 1739598? What = 1548242.22 -- No rounding allowed.
etc. Keep going backwards until you find your solution. Let's see your work.

Of course, "exactly" is a little dubious. You are using 360 days. Those increments are quite a bit larger than pieces of 365 days, or even 366 days.

## 1. How do I find the percentage of a number?

To find the percentage of a number, you can use the formula: (part/whole) * 100. This will give you the percentage value of the part in relation to the whole.

## 2. What is the difference between percentage and percent?

Percentage and percent are essentially the same and can be used interchangeably. They both represent a portion of a whole expressed in relation to 100.

## 3. Can I use a calculator to find the percentage?

Yes, you can use a calculator to find the percentage. Simply enter the part and whole values into the formula and multiply by 100 to get the percentage value.

## 4. How do I find the percentage increase or decrease?

To find the percentage increase or decrease, you can use the formula: ((new value - old value)/old value) * 100. If the result is positive, it is a percentage increase. If the result is negative, it is a percentage decrease.

## 5. How can I use percentages in real life?

Percentages are commonly used in real life situations such as calculating discounts, sales tax, and tip. They are also used in statistics to represent data and in finance to calculate interest rates and returns on investments.
