# SpreadSheet Calculations Help.. .08528% per day compounded. and taking 20% out each day..

I with the help of you got my spreadsheet working that is compounding ,05828%/day   but now I would like to add more columns that would calculate the daily amounts after  20% of each day was taken out leaving the 80% of what was there to be compounded daily.

The figures will be changed quite a bit I am sure but I need help adding to the existing spreadsheet.

Thank you,

just copy the last line down till line number 3701 and update the Day No column.  However I have done it for you... here is your file.

btw... i'm off for the day... will respond to any further messages (if any) tomorrow.  Hope this works for you.

now here is the story,... this is an "investment" that pays out on the initial investment .08528%/day and you will compound it daily.  I figured it for 3700 days,

NOW  I want to figure out what the daily amounts would be if I was to cash out 20% per day and keep the  remaining 80%  compounding.

Here is a picture of what I have for first 15 days with  \$10K  invested and that is compounding 100% each day.. I want to have other columns showing what would happen if I compounded 80% each day.

If I get your meaning, you want to see the end balance if you allow x% of the interest to stay in the
account and accumulate, and take out (1-x)% each day to buy hats or something.  This formula
does it:

=BeginBalance*(1+RatePerDay*PercLeftInAcct)^NumberOfDays

I do not know about that but I want to see the effect and result each day for the 3700 days of compounding 80% of the normal number.

Again I want to see each day the #,,

Hi Felix,,

No it is not. as the numbers should get larger every day as the daily compounding takes place.

I am looking for the pure daily compounding of  X dollars at  a rate of  .8528%   and then   if  80% of the daily interest is  compounded as opposed to 100% ,  what would be the numbers each day and I am going 3700 days.

similar to what I have here but I do not know if I have it correct:

This is the spreadsheet I have so far but I do not know if it is correct..   Again  I want to see the results of compounding at   .8528% daily for 3700 days and the corresponding daily interest earned    AND

then    instead of daily compounding 100% of the interest earned  to compound 80% of it and I want to see values for the daily interest earned AND the daily totals...

Ideally I really want to modify it so I can take more out each time than 20 %  but I am starting there.

As per my understanding this is probably what you are looking for.  If not, let me know what is wrong with it.  I have only put in 10 days worth of lines to reduce file size

I forgot to mention that changing the value 20% in cell H1 will result in different scenarios like you require - eg. change it to 25% and cell I1 will change to 75% and the calculations will happen accordingly.
