Common questions about the FV formula include:
1. What is the FV formula used for?
2. What information do I need to input when using the FV formula?

The FV formula can be used appropriately to calculate the future value of an investment based on its present value, the interest rate, and the number of periods it is invested for.

Common ways the FV formula is mistyped include: forgetting to include parentheses, forgetting to include the number of periods, and invalid values in the inputs.

Common ways the FV formula is used inappropriately include: incorrectly inputting the interest rate, incorrectly inputting the number of periods, and using the FV formula to calculate present value rather than future value.

Some common pitfalls when using the FV formula include: entering incorrect inputs, forgetting to include a variable in the formula, and using the formula before gathering all the necessary information.

Common mistakes when using the FV formula include: using incorrect data, forgetting to include the number of periods, and not accounting for income tax.
