## How do you calculate the interest rate on a loan?

Calculation

- Divide your interest rate by the number of payments you’ll make that year.
- Multiply that number by your remaining loan balance to find out how much you’ll pay in interest that month.
- Subtract that interest from your fixed monthly payment to see how much in principal you will pay in the first month.

## How do you calculate interest rate on a calculator?

Simple Interest Formulas and Calculations:

- Calculate Total Amount Accrued (Principal + Interest), solve for A. A = P(1 + rt)
- Calculate Principal Amount, solve for P. P = A / (1 + rt)
- Calculate rate of interest in decimal, solve for r. r = (1/t)(A/P – 1)
- Calculate rate of interest in percent.
- Calculate time, solve for t.

**How do I calculate interest on a loan in Excel?**

=PMT(17%/12,2*12,5400)

- The rate argument is the interest rate per period for the loan. For example, in this formula the 17% annual interest rate is divided by 12, the number of months in a year.
- The NPER argument of 2*12 is the total number of payment periods for the loan.
- The PV or present value argument is 5400.

### How do you calculate loans?

Here’s how you would calculate loan interest payments.

- Divide the interest rate you’re being charged by the number of payments you’ll make each year, usually 12 months.
- Multiply that figure by the initial balance of your loan, which should start at the full amount you borrowed.

When you take out a loan, you must pay back the loan plus interest by making regular payments to the bank. So you can think of a loan as an annuity you pay to a lending institution. For loan calculations we can use the formula for the Present Value of an Ordinary Annuity : P V = P M T i [ 1 − 1 (1 + i) n]
