    Mortgage Payment Compounded Monthly. Can't figure out interest rate

    Here is my formula

    Mortgage Payment Compounded Monthly. Can't figure out interest rate-formula.jpg



    I know the values of (M), (P) and (n). I want to know (i). This is a formula for a monthly mortgage payment with interest compounded monthly. I know my monthly payment (M), I know my principal (P) and I know my term in months (n). I don't know (i) my interest rate. (i) is APR/12 if that matters. I get as far as dividing both side by (P) and then I ht a road block.

    Formula can also be found at How To Calculate Mortgage Payments - Interest and Mortgage Formula Calculation

    Thanks!

    calculate interest rate

    Hi lazerexp,
    Your reference explains fully how to find i when given n , M and P. But you have to start with a guess like 5%/12 and solve the given equation inserting n . You repeat the calculation until it equals M/P.
