2. Principal: is the amount borrowed.

3. Periods: is the number of periods. Interest is added and payments are made at the end of each period.

4. Payments: is the amount of each payment made at the end of each period.

5. Interest Rate calculations become unreliable when the interest rate drops below some trivial value

(of say .01%/year) and break down completely at zero interest Periods. In this case use another method.

6. User input can be any constant statement using only numerics and +, -, *, and /. For example 5*12

could be entered to convert the number of years (5) into the number of monthly periods (60) for a loan paid monthly.

Example: You have borrowed $1000, the payments are $10 per month for 10 years.

What is the interest rate?

Principal = 1000; Payments = 10;Periods = 10*12
