Introduction

In this tutorial we will create the savings account formula necessary for our Safe2Save-applications. Furthermore, we'll give a short explanation of the User Interface of the Futurama Editor. We'll explain the functionality of the windows displayed.

Prerequisites

- The Futurama Editor must be installed.

## Description

This tutorial is the general starting point of all three tutorial-series.
Before building the application we want, we first want to create the formula that calculates the future savings amount.

The tutorial starts with the creation of the very basic formula 2+3. With this as a basis, the four different Window-areas of the Futurama Editor are explained.

After that, the formula needed for the Savings Account applications is build:

Future Savings:= Cash Balance*(1+Interest)^Years
