## David’s DVC Calculator

### How to Use the Calculator

To use David’s DVC Calculator, follow these simple steps:

- Enter the loan amount in the first field.
- Enter the annual interest rate in the second field. Use the percentage format (e.g., for 7.5% just enter 7.5).
- Enter the term of the loan in years in the third field.
- Click on the ‘Calculate’ button to see the monthly payment. The result will be displayed automatically below the button.

### How It Calculates the Results

The calculator computes your monthly payment using the formula for an amortized loan, which includes the loan amount, the interest rate, and the term. Here’s the breakdown:

**Monthly Interest Rate:**The annual interest rate divided by 12 (the number of months in a year).**Number of Payments:**The loan term in years multiplied by 12.**Monthly Payment:**The formula used to calculate the monthly payment is`A * (r(1+r)^n) / ((1+r)^n – 1)`

, where A is the loan amount, r is the monthly interest rate, and n is the number of payments.

### Limitations of the Calculator

While David’s DVC Calculator aims to provide accurate monthly payment calculations, it has certain limitations to keep in mind:

- It does not account for other fees like insurance, taxes, or additional costs associated with the loan which could affect your actual payment.
- It assumes a fixed-rate loan over the entire period; it does not calculate variable rates.
- Round-off errors can occur, so the result should be taken as an approximation rather than an exact payment amount.
