How It Calculates the Results

The calculator uses the standard formula for calculating monthly loan payments:

Monthly Payment = [Loan Amount x (Monthly Interest Rate)] / [1 – (1 + Monthly Interest Rate)^(-Loan Term)]


  • Loan Amount is the principal amount you are borrowing.
  • Monthly Interest Rate is the annual interest rate divided by 12.
  • Loan Term is the period over which the loan will be repaid, expressed in months.


There are a few limitations you should be aware of when using this calculator:

  • The calculator assumes a fixed interest rate for the duration of the loan. Variable rates are not accounted for.
  • The calculator does not include additional costs such as closing costs, insurance, taxes, or other fees.
  • It is designed for basic estimation and should not be used as a sole basis for financial decisions. Always consult with a financial advisor for detailed loan planning.
