Computational Notes

The calculator assumes that no new charges are added and that payments are made monthly.

The interest on the current balance is calculated first. Interest is equal to the current balance multiplied by the APR or interest rate expressed as a decimal equivalent (15% becomes 0.15) divided by 12. The new balance is equal to the current balance plus the interest minus the monthly payment.
