What are interest–time factors, and how are they used in the analysis of engineering economics problems?

To determine

Explain the interest-time factors and its uses in the analysis of engineering economics problems.

The interest-time factor is the shortcut method used to avoid long writing formulas. The interest-time factor technique is used while solving various cash flow occurrences with equivalent values.

In engineering economics problems, these interest-time factors are used to shortcut the method for the calculation of long formulas. For example, the expression to calculate the uniform series payment for the given present value using the interest-time factor is,
