## How do you calculate interest

Answered By: Samuel Thompson Date: created: Jan 26 2021

Divide your interest rate by the number of payments you’ll make in the year (interest rates are expressed annually). So, for example, if you’re making monthly payments, divide by 12. 2. Multiply it by the balance of your loan, which for the first payment, will be your whole principal amount.

## How do you calculate monthly interest rate

Answered By: Jose Parker Date: created: Feb 17 2022

To calculate a monthly interest rate, divide the annual rate by 12 to account for the 12 months in the year. You’ll need to convert from percentage to decimal format to complete these steps. For example, let’s assume you have an APY or APR of 10% per year.

## How do you calculate interest rate without interest

Answered By: Samuel Mitchell Date: created: Aug 23 2021

Divide the amount of interest paid over the year by the current loan balance. For example, \$3,996 divided by a current loan balance of \$83,828 equals 0.0476. Multiply that number by 100 to get the approximate interest rate — in this case, 4.76 percent.
