Note: the abbreviations have the following meanings

FVIF= Future Value Interest Factor
Ordinary Annuity
FVIFA= Future Value Interest Factor for an Annuity
Annuity due
FVIFA (Annuity due)= Future Value Interest Factor for an Annuity due

They can be read from tables or calculated using the following equations
FVIF( n, r%)= =(1+r%)^n

FVIFA( n, r%)= =[(1+r%)^n -1]/r%
