#### Formula:

Present value = Annuity amount x [1 - (1 / (1 + r)^{n})] / r

**Where,**
r - Rate of Interest /100
n - Number of years
The present value (PV) of annuity is lower than the present amount of the future value.

#### Example

**What is the present value of an annuity amount of Rs.12000 that is invested at a rate of 10 % for 5 years.
**

PV = 12000 x [1 - (1 / (1 + (10/100))^5] / (10/100)

= Rs.45489.44
