## Loan Payment Formula

For those wondering about the loan amount formula, here it is:

### Terminology:

i= Interest Rate

n= Number Of Months

### Example

Here is an example which will answer all of your queries.

Let’s say you borrow $10,000 for a period of 3 years at an annual interest rate of 5%.

**$Total Repayment Amount=$10,000+($10,000×0.05×3)$ $Total Repayment Amount=$10,000+($10,000×0.15)$ $Total Repayment Amount=$10,000+$1,500$ $Total Repayment Amount=$11,500$**

So, the total amount you would need to repay is **$11,500**.

This formula works for any currency or amount. Just make sure the interest rate and time are consistent (e.g., if the interest rate is annual, the time should be in years).
