    Angry How to insert this formula on excel?

    Hello,

    I am cracking my head trying to add this formula to excel, and no success.

    The formula is to calcute the cost of capital invested, and the formula I have is attached as an image, since I cannot find a way to write it down.

    I have the values for "V aquisic„o" and "taxa anual", but I simply cannot figure out the formula to put on excell to express that. Extremely frustrated and annoyed... the closest I have been to it is : =D17*((nroot{12}{1+D7-1})) but it gives me Error 539.

    Help!

    Welcome to the forum.

    This is more to do with maths than Excel. This is an English language forum - can you provide the formula in English?

    I presume you have Googled this? Here's one promising link I found with a simple Google search ("cost of capital invested Excel"): https://www.educba.com/cost-of-capital-formula/

    Just looking at what you have done, and purely as a guess, maybe you need this:

    =D17*((1+D7^(1/12))-1)

    or this:

    =D17*(((1+D7)^(1/12))-1)

    Well, I don't have a crystal ball, so I can't help any further unless you give more information.

    1. What is in D7?
    2. What is in D17?
    3. What is your expected result?

    @Pepe - I noticed the user profile, however the OP said in the opening post (and in the title) that they were trying to do this in Excel, so I did not move the thread.
