The future value of 7 annual receipts of $1,200.00, received at the end of each period, and earning an annual interest rate of 9.000%, would be $11,040.52 -- of which $8,400.00 is the total of the receipts and $2,640.52 is the total interest earnings.

Please note that the $2,640.52 also represents the financial opportunity cost of spending $1,200.00 per year for 7 years on non-essential expenditures that lose their value with time and/or use.
