I am trying to write a basic amortization calculator program in JavaScript and I am at a standstill. I have researched my issue online for hours without being able to come up with a resolution. In my program I have created a "for" loop which loops for the appropriate loan term, however, none of my other calculations change in the loop. They all remain identical to the first row (except for the number of months). Below is the code that I have thus far. I am not looking for anyone to provide the actual correct code, but simply ideas regarding why my loop does not work properly or a direction to head into. I have found tons of slightly different javascript codes regarding amortizations schedules, but I don't want to use those and I would like to learn how to get my own code to work. Any help would be appreciated.

```
function amort(balance, interestRate, numMonths)
{
var monthlyRate = interestRate / 12;
var payment = balance * (monthlyRate / (1 - Math.pow(1 + monthlyRate, -terms)));
var result = "Loan amount: $" + balance.toFixed(2) + "<br />" +
"Interest rate: " + (interestRate * 100).toFixed(2) + "%<br />" +
"Number of months: " + terms + "<br />" +
"Monthly payment: $" + payment.toFixed(2) + "<br />" +
"Total paid: $" + (payment * terms).toFixed(2) + "<br /><br />";
result += "<table border='1'><tr><th>Month</th><th>Balance</th>" + //creates table headers
"<th>Interest</th><th>Principal</th>";
var interestPaid = balance * monthlyRate; //calculates the interest paid each month
var principalPaid = payment - interestPaid; //calculates the principal paid each month
var newBalance = balance - principalPaid; // calculates a new monthly balance
for (var i = 1; i <= numMonths; i++ ){ //starts loop and increments number of months by one up to the inputted loan term
result += "<tr><td>" + i + "</td><td>" + balance.toFixed(2) + "</td><td>" + interestPaid.toFixed(2) + "</td>" + "<td>" + principalPaid.toFixed(2) + "</td></tr>"
}
result += "</table>";
return result
}
```
