I have the 1992 version of "Mathematica by Example"

page 210 shows a formula for the following.  If P dollars are invested for t

at an annual interest rate of r% compounded m times per year, the compounded 
amount, A(t) = P(1 + r/m)^mt.  sounds like future worth to me.  Examples follow 

on pages 211 to 227.

hope that helps.
