Invesment Calculator
 Future Amount (F) : Payment Amount (P) : Rate of Interest (r) : % Rate of Interest Compounded : Monthly Quarterly HalfYearly Annually Number of Payments (N) :
Formula
N = [ log ( 1 + [ ( r*F ) / P ] ) ] / ( log (1+r) )

Where,
P = Payment Amount
F = Future Amount
r = Rate of Interest (compounded)
N = Number of Payments

Rate of Interest Compounded is,
If Monthly,
r = i / 1200

If Quarterly,
r = i / 400

If Half yearly,
r = i / 200

If Yearly,
r = i / 100

Investment is an asset or item that is purchased with the intention to generate income or appreciate in the future.

Examples:
[Log (1+[(5%+100000)/1000])] / (log (1+5))
Log( 1+(105000)/1000) / log (1.05) = 83.77

Therefore the number of payment in investment is 83.77 times.
