# How it solve Interest on financing?

#### alexapaula

hello, Sorry for my english, I'm from Brazil

I have a simple question ... I would like to solve using formulas on paper because the result I found using the hp 12c.

data
Funding Amount - $15,000.00 Value of shares - R$ 1.400,00
Number of months - 12 months
The interest will be:??

I was using this formula: PV= (1 - (1+i)^n / i) . p

Thanks

Is funding amount 15 thousand dollars? Is share one dollar and forty cents? What does ",00" mean?

Anyway, the formula you are using is the Present Value of an annuity.
a price per share of $60.00, and an expected growth rate of 10%: rate of return = [(1.50(1 + .10)) ÷ 60] + .10 = .1275, or 12.75% #### alexapaula Denis, The question : A funding of$ 15.000 is paid in 12 installments of $1.400 which is the interest rate? I know this interest rate is 1.7881% but how can I arrive this result? without using financial calculator #### Denis Math Team alexapaula said: A funding of$ 15.000 is paid in 12 installments of $1.400 which is the interest rate? I know this interest rate is 1.7881% but how can I arrive this result? without using financial calculator Ahhhhhhhhhh....I see..... This is simply a loan of$15 repaid over 12 months, monthly payment being \$1.40: what is interest rate?

Formula for loan payment:
P = A*i / [1 - (1 + i)^(-n)]
P = Payment
A = Amount of loan
i = interest rate
n = number of payments
1.4 = 15*i / [1 - (1 + i)^(-12)]

That style of equation CANNOT be solved directly; numeric methods are required (like guess and check).
Have a look here:

If you want to see more sites, google "solving numerically".

The rate of 1.7881 you quoted is correct; that' s .017881 compounded monthly.
