hey need some help with my loan program
i have two problems
how do you add the total of the variable sumtin from a while loop
and
i need to show the inital loan first then after the calculations are done show it again
like i want it to show 1000 then 945 then 945 then 930 that sorta thing

``````#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
double loan,yrint,mptpd,sumtin;
double decint,prince,totalprnce;
int month = 0;

cout << "Enter the amount of loan: ";
cin >> loan;
cout << "Enter the yearly interest: ";
cin >> yrint;
cout << "Enter the monthly amount paid: ";
cin >> mptpd;

cout << endl;
cout << "Month";
cout << setw(20) << "Princpal Interest";
cout << setw(10) << "Paid";
cout << setw(20) << "Principal Paid";
cout << setw(20) << "Remaining Balance" << endl;

while (loan > 0)
{
month++;
decint = yrint/100/12;
sumtin = loan*decint;
prince = mptpd - sumtin;
loan = loan - prince;

cout << fixed << showpoint << setprecision(2);
cout << setw(4) <<month;
cout << setw(17) << loan;
cout << setw(15) << sumtin;
cout << setw(15) << prince;
cout << setw(20) << loan;
cout << endl;
}

cout << "The total months you need to pay off is " << month << endl;
cout << "Total interest paid on loan " << sumtin << endl;
cout << "You have a credit of " << loan << endl;

return 0;
}``````

HERES THE OUTPUT I NEED THE PRINCIPLE INTEREST TO SHOW 1000 first
Enter the amount of loan: 1000
Enter the yearly interest: 18
Enter the monthly amount paid: 50

## All 2 Replies To do a running total it is pretty simple

First initialize it.

int total = 0;

Then put the following in the body of the while or for loop

total = total + <whatever>

Then show it at the end of the while or for loop do:

cout << total
