I am new to C++ programming and I'm having a little trouble.

I have to create a program that lets the user enter the loan amount and loan period in number of years and displays the monthly and total payments for each interest rate starting from 5% to 8%, with an increment of 1/8.

Loan Amount: 10000
Number of Years: 5

Interest Rate Monthly Payment Total Payment
5% 188.71 11322.74
5.125% 189.28 11357.13
5.25% 189.85 11391.59
...
7.85% 202.16 12129.97
8.0% 202.76 12165.83

The code displays the answer for 5% but I can't seem to figure out how to get it to add the increment to the interest rate and display all of the results.

Here is what I have:

``````#include "stdafx.h"

#include <iostream>
#include <cmath>
using namespace std;

int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
{
double loanAmount;
int numberOfYears;
double annualInterestRate = 5;
double monthlyInterestRate;
double monthlyPayment;
double totalPayment;

// Enter loan amount
cout << "Loan Amount: ";
cin >> loanAmount;

// Enter number of years
cout << "Number of Years: ";
cin >> numberOfYears;

// Obtain monthly interest rate
monthlyInterestRate = annualInterestRate / 1200;

for (double i = 5; i <= 8; i += .125) {

// Calculate payment
monthlyPayment = loanAmount * monthlyInterestRate / (1
- 1 / pow(1 + monthlyInterestRate, numberOfYears * 12));
totalPayment = monthlyPayment * numberOfYears * 12;

// Format to keep two digits after the decimal point
monthlyPayment = static_cast<int>(monthlyPayment * 100) / 100.0;
totalPayment = static_cast<int>(totalPayment * 100) / 100.0;

// Display results
cout << "Interest Rate " << annualInterestRate << "% " << "\tMonthly Payment " << monthlyPayment << "\nTotal Payment " << totalPayment << endl;

return 0;
}

}``````

I can really use help. Thanks.

You never use the i from your for loop in the calculation. You should use that value to calculate the monthlyInterestRate inside of the loop.

Thanks
