### Explanation of the Calculation

The annuity calculation is based on the following formula:

A = P * (r / (1 - (1 + r) ^ -n))

Where:

- A is the annuity payment.
- P is the principal amount.
- r is the rate per period (annual rate divided by payments per year).
- n is the total number of payments (years multiplied by payments per year).

This formula calculates the fixed periodic payment amount you need to pay or receive over a specified period of time.
