Hello,

I am doing a homework assignment and I am getting an "illegal character" error and I don't understand. The assignment is to use an array to calculate three mortgage payments based on three differnt rates and terms in years.

Thanks in advance Y'all.

$200,000.00 loan over a 7 year term at 5.35 interest
$200,000.00 loan over a 15 year term at 5.5 interest
$200,000.00 loan over a 30 year term at 5.75 interest
