How would I solve for an growth rate using two inputs: today's value (payment) and the sum of a stream of payments?  

 

For example: what growth rate is required to make today's value of $100 equal $700 over the next 5 periods?

 

I can use the backsolve functionality but would like this to be more dynamic.

Hi Mark,

When you say you are using the backsolve functionality, are you using Goal Seek?
