Suppose you invest $200 in a savings account that bank pays 10 percent interest per year. How much will you have in one year?
A Single Period is one year for this case, and yearly discount rate is 10%.
FV=PV x (1 +i) = 200 x (1+10%)=$220
You will have $220
Mr.David Sok is your friend, and he wants to borrow from you $1,000 with borrowing rate 2% for one month. How much will you have in one month?

FV=PV x (1 +i) = 1,000 x (1+2%)=$1,020
You will have $1,020
