Hello there, Well from compounded yearly, it comes to $896,692.82.

I don't see how compounded monthly makes any difference if the Intetrest rate is yearly at 11.9 %.

The quick and dirty calculator I used is here, http://www.financialcalculator.org/investing/interest-calculator

You gonna be rich Bro :)

That question is much more complicated than you think - are you charging interest percentage daily? Weekly? Monthly? Anually? Once you have the period figured, you begin at some start point of your choosing. Exactly one "period" later, you multiply the basis (the outstanding balance) by the percentage rate (5%, for example, would mean you multiply by 0.05), then add that number to the basis - that's your new basis, your new outstanding balance.

But... if you charge an annual interest rate, and you compound daily or weekly or monthly, you have to take payments into account and adjust for them - it's fair to charge interest up to the moment of payment, but not beyond that moment; you can rightly only charge interest on the remaining unpaid balance beyond that date.

If you charge an annual interest rate but compound monthly, then every month you'd charge 1/12 of your annual interest rate. If weekly, 1/52. If daily, 1/365. The smaller the compounding period, the easier it is to calculate interest around payments, but the more paperwork is involved.

But how often is the interest applied, yearly or monthly? If yearly, then the last 3 months don't earn anything at the 29 mo point. So $27624.

If applied monthly the usual trick is to simply divide the yearly rate by 12 = 1.32% per mo. So after 29 mo, $30132

Once you're in the TVM solver:

On the top line (N=) type in 5 * 12 ENTER for five years of month payments.

On the I% lline type in 5.5 / 12 ENTER for the month interest rate.

On the PV line type in 18000 ENTER

Make sure the FV is 0 and END is highlighted on the bottom line.

Move the cursor to the PMT line and press ALPHA [SOLVE] (that's ALPHA ENTER) and see -343.82 for the monthly payment.

No. To the nearest cent, the monthly interest is $162.50. The monthly payments only pay the interest, without reducing the principal.
