Step 1

Horizon is n = 4 years from now.

FVn = The future value at the end of period n, of a cash flow occuring at the end of period t = Ct x (1 + i)n-t

where Ct = Cash flow occuring at the end of period t and i = interest rate per period.

Step 2

In our case, n = horizon period = 4 years

i = 6.5%

Hence, FV4 = Ct x (1 + 6.5%)4-t

We now proceed to do the calculation in an excel file.
