Enter your desired monthly repayment, the nominal interest rate (fixed), and the time to completely repay the loan or mortgage.
Remember that the "true interest rate" is not the same as the "nominal interest rate" (although it is very close), since it depends on the frequency that interest is compounded. This calc assumes monthly compounding.
Another calc is available to find what the expected monthly repayment for a particular loan size is.
