To calculate an insurance loan using a calculator, you’ll need to know a few pieces of information:
- The total amount of the loan you’re taking out.
- The interest rate on the loan.
- The length of the loan, typically in years.
With these pieces of information, you can use a formula to calculate the monthly loan payment.
Here’s the formula:
Monthly Payment = (P * r) / (1 - (1 + r) ^ (-n))
Pis the total amount of the loan
ris the monthly interest rate, calculated by dividing the annual interest rate by 12
nis the total number of payments, calculated by multiplying the number of years by 12
To use a calculator to calculate the insurance loan, follow these steps:
- Open a calculator that has a built-in financial function, such as the Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets spreadsheet program.
- Enter the total amount of the loan in a cell, for example, cell A1.
- Enter the annual interest rate in another cell, for example, cell A2.
- Divide the annual interest rate by 12 to get the monthly interest rate. Enter the formula
=A2/12in another cell, for example, cell A3.
- Enter the length of the loan in years in another cell, for example, cell A4.
- Multiply the length of the loan by 12 to get the total number of payments. Enter the formula
=A4*12in another cell, for example, cell A5.
- Enter the formula
=(A1*A3)/(1-(1+A3)^(-A5))in another cell, for example, cell A6.
- The result in cell A6 is the monthly payment for the insurance loan.
With this calculation, you can see how much you’ll be paying each month to cover the insurance loan. Keep in mind that this calculation does not take into account any additional fees or charges that may be associated with the loan.
