# Rate Mortgage Calculator

### Introduction

Understanding the potential monthly payments on your mortgage is essential for effective financial planning. Our Rate Mortgage Calculator simplifies this process, allowing you to estimate your monthly mortgage payment based on the loan amount, interest rate, and loan term.

### Formula

To calculate the monthly mortgage payment, our calculator uses the following formula:

�=�⋅�(1+�)�(1+�)�−1M=P⋅(1+r)n−1r(1+r)n

Where:

• M is the monthly payment.
• P is the loan amount.
• r is the monthly interest rate (annual rate divided by 12 and converted to a decimal).
• n is the total number of payments (loan term in years multiplied by 12).

### How to Use

1. Enter the loan amount in the “Loan Amount” field.
2. Input the annual interest rate in the “Interest Rate” field.
3. Specify the loan term in years using the “Loan Term” field.
4. Click the “Calculate” button to get your estimated monthly mortgage payment.

### Example

Suppose you want to calculate the monthly payment for a \$300,000 mortgage with a 4.5% annual interest rate and a 25-year loan term. Enter the respective values, click “Calculate,” and the result will display the estimated monthly payment.
