I just want to know If I can combine the 2 codes together, that I created, or do I have to start over?
The new assignment is to: Use an array for the different loans. Display the mortgage payment amount for each loan. Then, list the loan balance and interest paid for each payment over the term of the loan. Use loops to prevent lists from scrolling off the screen.

Purpose:	Modify the mortgage program to display the mortgage payment amount.  Then, list the loan balance and
			interest paid for each payment over the term of the loan.  The list would scroll off the screen, but
			use loops to display a partial list, hesitate, and then display more of the list.  Do not use a graphical
			user interface.  Insert comments in the program to document the program.

yes you can. and its also better for you if you build it upon your previous work.

Thank you, I am working on the code now. If I get stuck I will post my problems.
