Hello everyone,

I'm at a loss. I've been trying to add a couple of images to my mortgage loan program for class. Everything I try either doesn't work or blanks out the screen. Any help would be appreciated: :-|

            a mortgage payment amount and amortization schedule from user input amounts, terms, and interest rates.  The three combinations of terms and interest rates for the loan are loaded from a file.
