 Not a QNX question

I need help with an interest rate calculation.

Given:
P = Principal
i = APR
n = frequency of payments/compounding per year
Y = number of years to repay
B = Final Balloon Payment

how do I calculate the per period payment?

Here’s my list of handy formulas, not sure if the one you want is in there somewhere Financial mathematics:
Future worth of a present amount:
(F/P, i, N) = (1 + i) ^ n = e ^ (j * n)

Present worth of a future amount:
(P/F, i, N) = 1 / ((1 + i) ^ n) = e ^ (-j * n)

Future worth of an annuity:
(F/A, i, N) = ((1 + i) ^ n - 1) / i = (e ^ j * n - 1) / (e ^ j - 1)

Annuity for a future amount:
(A/F, i, N) = i / ((1 + i) ^ n - 1) = (e ^ j - 1) / (e ^ (j * n) - 1)

Present worth of an annuity:
(P/A, i, N) = ((1 + i) ^ n - 1) / (i * (1 + i) ^ n) = (e ^ (j * n) - 1) / ((e ^ j - 1) * e ^ (j * n))

Annuity from a present amount:
(A/P, i, N) = (i * (1 + i) ^ n) / ((1 + i) ^ n) - 1) = ((e ^ j - 1) * e ^ (j * n)) / (e ^ (j * n) - 1)

Future worth of a continuous annuity:
(F/A’, j, N) = ((1 + i) ^ n - 1) / j = (e ^ (j * n) - 1) / j

Present worth of a continuous annuity:
(P/A’, j, N) = ((1 + i) ^ n - 1) / (j * (1 + i) ^ n) = (e ^ (j * n) - 1) / (j * e ^ (j * n))

Continuous annuity from a present amount:
(A’/P, j, N) = (j * (1 + i) ^ n) / ((1 + i ^ n - 1) = (j * e ^ (j * n)) / (e ^ (j * n) - 1)

Continuous annuity for a future amount:
(A’/F, j, N) = j / ((1 + i) ^ n - 1) = j / (e ^ (j * n) - 1)

Yawn. I call my accountant… Seriously, it looks like an interesting question. I bet it isn’t in any
financial calculator, nor in Rob’s handy list, either. It’s that
arbitrary Final Balloon Payment; if it was zero one of the standard
formulas would handle it. Hmmm, time for more coffee…

I mean I know how to do an amortization table. I can use trial and error
until I get to the correct cent. But I know that there is some crazy log
formula that will do it in one shot.

How about a root solver? Netwon’s methos works fine on this equation.

Newton? That guy got hit on the head by too many apples! (I think they

were the 2E’s)
