Using the calculator is straight forward. Enter a “loan amount”, “number of months”, “annual interest rate”. The calculator calculates the number of monthly payments.
The “Payment Method” determines when the first payment is due. With the default selection, “End-of-Period”, the first payment will be due one month after the loan is made. If “Start-of-Period” is selected, then the first payment will be due on the loan date. The term (duration) of the loan is expressed as a number of months.
