if I want to modify this program to display 3 mortgage loans like 7yrs at 5.35%, 15 yrs at 5.5%, and 30 yrs at 5.75% using arrays to display mortgage payment for each loan.  

How do I start?  Just give me clues to work on.  This is very frustrating to me as much as I research it.

Here is the code.

class MortgageSetup {

     private int Price = 200000;
     //hardcoded
     private double Interest = 0.0575;
     //hardcoded
     private int MortYears = 30;
     //hardcoded

     public MortgageSetup() {
     }

     public int getPrice() {
          return Price;
     }

     public void setPrice(int num) {
          Price = num;
     }


     public double getInterest() {
          return Interest;
     }


     public void setInterest(double num) {
          Interest = num;
     }


     public int getYears() {
          return MortYears;
     }


     public void setYears(int years) {
          MortYears = years;
     }


     public double totCost() {

          return (Price * Interest) / MortYears;
     }


     public static void main(String[] args) {

          MortgageSetup a = new MortgageSetup();

          double totalMorgagePerYear = a.getPrice() * a.getInterest();
          System.out.println("You'll have to pay as the interest rate " + totalMorgagePerYear + " per year");
          int years = a.getYears();
          System.out.println("This is " + totalMorgagePerYear * years + " for " + years + " years");

          double total = a.getPrice() + (totalMorgagePerYear * years);
          System.out.println("The total is: " + total);

          a.setPrice(200000);
          a.setInterest(0.575);
          a.setYears(30);

          System.out.println("Price\tInterest\tYears\tTotal\n");

          for (int i = 30; i > 0; i--) {  //using for loop

               System.out.println(
                         a.getPrice()
                          + "\t" + a.getInterest()
                          + "\t\t" + a.getYears()
                          + "\t" + a.totCost());
               if (i % 10 == 0) {
                    System.out.println("Press enter for more");

          int x = 1;  //using while loop
              while (x <= 10) {
                System.out.println("Price\tInterest\tYears\tTotal\n");
                x = x + 1;
    }

               }
          }
     }
}

MortgageSetup a[] = new MortgageSetup[3] ;

Use for loop and array-indices to read/ write values.

for ( int i = 0 ; i < 3 ; i ++ )
{
  a[i].setPrice ( whatever ) ;
  a[i].setInterest ( whatever ) ;
  a[i].setYears ( whatever ) ;

>> 7yrs at 5.35%, 15 yrs at 5.5%, and 30 yrs at 5.75% using arrays

int years[] = { 7, 15, 30 } ;
double rates[] = { 0.0535, 0.055, 0.575 } ;

for ( int i = 0 ; i < 3 ; i ++ )
{
  a[i].setPrice ( whatever ) ;
  a[i].setInterest ( rates[i] ) ;
  a[i].setYears ( years[i] ) ;

}

try this,
public class MortgageSetup {

     private int Price;

     private double Interest;

     private int MortYears;


     public MortgageSetup(int price, double interest, int mortYears) {
             this.Price = price;
             this.Interest = interest;
             this.MortYears = mortYears;
     }

     public int getPrice() {
          return Price;
     }

     public void setPrice(int num) {
          Price = num;
     }


     public double getInterest() {
          return Interest;
     }


     public void setInterest(double num) {
          Interest = num;
     }


     public int getYears() {
          return MortYears;
     }


     public void setYears(int years) {
          MortYears = years;
     }


     public double totCost() {

          return (Price * Interest) / MortYears;
     }


     public static void main(String[] args) {

             MortgageSetup a[] = new MortgageSetup[3];

          a[1] = new MortgageSetup(1000, 0.055, 15);
          a[2] = new MortgageSetup(1000, 0.0575, 30);

         
          for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) {  //using for loop

               System.out.println(
                         a[i].getPrice()
                          + "\t" + a[i].getInterest()
                          + "\t\t" + a[i].getYears()
                          + "\t" + a[i].totCost());

          }        
     }
}
