RE: The Quick Loans Math
Hello everybody,
I've been looking around for information regarding loan repayments & I haven't seen a list of loan repayment formulas from my search.
This guide is most useful for college/university students who have loans & home buyers. Even if you don't have a current loan, this tool will help you discern the power of compound interest.

DISCLAIMER: This datasheet does not constitute financial advice, nor it claims to be as such. Contact your financial advisor for specific information about loan repayments.
This datasheet details the mathematics of loans, which consists of an exponent (compound interest in the absence of payment) & a geometric series (a series of periodical exponents ranging from 1 to n).
The following datasheet assumes that the interest rate remains unchanged, therefore all examples below will be for a fixed rate loan with a fixed repayment amount. This is not the case for variable loans since the interest rate changes on occasion, or for variable repayment amounts. In that case, the forumla will have to be applied multiple times.
Introduction
For some reason, debt was accepted as a way of life. However, there are other places to discuss the cultural and societal aspects of debt.
As debt is here to stay indefinitely in this world, this datasheet will delve into the mathematics of loans. If you prefer to skip the math, scroll down to the section "
Applying The Relevant Formula Across Four Situations, Using Real Life Examples".
There are two sections: the detailed mathematical derivation focusing on the arithmetic series, geometric series & exponentials.

- Instalment Amount
- Instalment Periods
- Interest Rate
