I'm attempting to create a future value calculator. I have the design aspect figured out but the blocks editor is very difficult to understand. I have a text box for the Starting Principal, another for the Interest Rate, and a third for the Periodic Deposit. Any tips on how to get started in the blocks editor to get it functioning would be greatly appreciated.
