% payment loan
As example, a \$1,000.00 loan is repaid with monthly payments being 3% of balance owing;
with interest at 1% per month, this is what the loan looks like after 2 payments:
Code:

```N    PAYMENT  INTEREST    BALANCE 0                        1000.00 1      30.00    10.00    980.00 2      29.40      9.80    960.40```
a = amount borrowed
i = monthly interest rate (.01 in above)
m = minimum pay't rate (.03 in above)
n = number of payments made

Gimme a formula that gives balance owing after n payments.
In terms of a,i,m,n , of course.

\$\displaystyle P({n},{p},{i}){ = }1000 (1-p+i)^n\$

\$\displaystyle P[2,.03,.01] = 960.40\$

Yepper Max; I was surprised at its simplicity.
