# Amortization Monthly Calculator

Introduction: The Amortization Monthly Calculator helps you understand the monthly payment breakdown for your loan, considering principal and interest. It’s a useful tool for financial planning and budgeting.

Formula: The calculator utilizes the formula: Monthly Payment = P * [r(1 + r)^n] / [(1 + r)^n – 1], where P is the loan amount, r is the monthly interest rate, and n is the loan term in months.

Example: If the loan amount is \$100,000, the annual interest rate is 4%, and the loan term is 36 months, clicking “Calculate” will show a monthly payment of \$2,984.62.
