# Formulas for consulting interviews

Hi all,

I hope you are doing well. Do you have any cheat sheet on the must-known formulas for consulting interviews (maybe in a case book)?

Here is what I have on mind: payback period, NPV, DCF, Breakeven point, contribution margin, 72 rule, annuity, perpetuity...

Thanks a lot for your help
