Calculate the number of periods needed to reach a given value.
`PDURATION(rate, pv, fv)`
• rate - required argument for the rate of the investment
• pv - required argument for the present value of the investment
• fv - required argument for the future value of the investment

## Examples

• `=PDURATION(C5/C6,C7,C8)`

The PDURATION function can be used to calculate the number of periods it takes for an investment to reach a certain amount of money. For example, this will return 166.70 periods if the interest is compounded monthly.
