# Amortization Table

You borrowed $683,000.00 to buy your first home. The interest rate is 4% compounded quarterly, and you will be making the payment twice a month. If the regular payment is 1,300.00, complete the first and last payment rows of the amortization schedule.  Payment Number Payment Amount Interest Portion Principal Portion Balance 0 A= 1 B= C= D= E= ... ... ... ... ... F= G= H= I= J= Looking for an answer with a full explanation, the notation we use is A = future value P = principal r = annual interest rate n = number of compounding periods per year t = time of investment/loan in years m = monthly deposit I = interest amount bal = balance *it wouldn't let me add a$ in front of the 1,300.00 but it is in dollars!

I can't find any questions like this online and neither can my teacher so any help is very much appreciated!

I can answer this question but your offered bounty is a low. It would take about 30-40 minutes to write a good solution.

Thank you for letting me know! What is a reasonable bounty for this question? Keeping in mind I am a broke college student! But of course, I want to offer fair compensation!

Just think about how much time one may need to answer your questions and how much the time of a person qualified to answer your question is worth. It would give you an idea for a reasonable bounty.

I'm confused about the Bn. If n=number of compounding periods each year how can it also equal the number of payments?

n is not the number of compounding periods. It is the number of payments.

my textbook refers to n as the number of compounding periods each year. Are you referring to n x t?

B_n is the balance you owe to the bank after n payments or n/2 months as you are making payments twice a month.
