Theoretical formula to help build amortisation table

Suppose I have an input number of 100.

 

For each period I have a fixed number which I will add to the latest input number and then I will multiply it by 0.1 and add it to the total (or multiple by 1.1).

 

i.e.

 

Round 1: 

Input = 100 + 10 (fixed number) = 110
110 * 1.1 = 121 (new input)

 

Round 2: 

Input = 121 + 10 (fixed number) = 131
131 * 1.1 = 144.1

etc.

 

I need a way to write a calculated measure or calcualted table to work out the variable amount and closing amount at any given round. Chart is below.

Would appreciate anyone who thinks they're able to write a formula for this. My trouble is that the variable column is a self-reference, since to calculate the variable number in a certain period, you need to know the variable number in all previous periods to work out the input number for the period you are trying to calculate. 

 

Thanks!

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Try the following measures

InPut = 
VAR _Firstinput = 100
VAR _Fixedbefore = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Fixed]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Index]<SUM('Table'[Index])))
VAR _Varbefore = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Var]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Index]<SUM('Table'[Index])))
RETURN
_Firstinput+_Fixedbefore+_Varbefore
OutPut = 
VAR _Firstinput = 100
VAR _Fixedbefore = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Fixed]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Index]<=SUM('Table'[Index])))
VAR _Varbefore = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Var]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Index]<=SUM('Table'[Index])))
RETURN
_Firstinput+_Fixedbefore+_Varbefore

Another thing to add on is that the "fixed" addition may not be consistent throughout the entire periods so the formula needs to handle that as well.
