This tool helps you calculate your holding time quickly and accurately.

## How to Use the Calculator

Enter the following details to calculate the compounded amount:

**Principal Amount ($):**The initial sum of money placed in the account.**Annual Interest Rate (%):**The annual interest rate applied to the principal amount.**Time (Years):**The number of years the money is invested or borrowed for.**Compounding Frequency (per year):**How many times per year the interest is compounded.

Then click the “Calculate” button to see the result. The result is the amount of money that will be available in the account after the specified time period, considering the compounding interest.

## How the Calculator Works

This calculator uses the formula for compound interest:

Amount = Principal × (1 + Rate / Frequency)^{Frequency × Time}

Where:

**Principal:**The initial amount of money.**Rate:**The annual interest rate (converted to a decimal).**Frequency:**The number of compounding periods per year.**Time:**The time the money is invested or borrowed for, in years.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes that the interest rate remains constant over the entire period. It also does not account for any additional contributions or withdrawals made during the investment period. Ensure all entered values are positive and valid numbers.
