import java.awt.*;
Class Mortgage  {
public static void main (String[] args)  {
static int years = 30;
static double amount = 200000;
static double rate = 5.75;

//My first attempt to write a Java program
}
{"I'm in main", "My
mortgage amount has been hard-coded..."
{
{
mortgage_amount= \$200,000;
}
//No down payment The monthly factor
function set_interest(5.75)  System out.printin(.0575/12);
{
interest_rate=form.interest_rate.value;
}
{
function set_term(30 years)  System out.printin(360*12);
}
{term=form.term.value; System out.printn(200,000*0.0048)
}

you could write a function that

I assume the interest is monthly

for(int i = 0; i < years; i++)
{
for(int j = 0; j < 12; j++)
{
monthly_payment = amount * rate; /* calculates the interest to be paid */
System.out.println("Total interest paid this month" + monthly_payment);
total_paid += monthly_payment; /*holds the total amount paid */

}
System.out.println("total loan paid back after " + i + " years is " + total_paid);
}

That calculates the interest for the 30 year period. If you have an amount they have to pay say, £100 a month plus the interest

add the following line below monthly payment

month_payment += 100;

I have been working with it day and night.  I am using JProPro.  So far I have revised to the following point:  Please check
import java.math.*;
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;

public class mortgage{

static NumberFormat n = NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance();

static int yterm = 30;            // Variable for length of term in years
static double price = 200000;    // Variable for total amount of mortgage
static double rate = 5.75;        // Variable for interest rate
static double mrate = rate/100;
static double payment = price*((mrate)/(12)+((mrate)/(12))/(Math.pow((1+(mrate)/12),(yterm*12))-1));

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

int term = 360;
double interestDue, amtApplied;

while (term > 0) {
if(term == 300)
break;
interestDue = (price * (rate/100)) / 12;
amtApplied = payment - interestDue;
price = price - amtApplied;

System.out.println("Payment # "  + term
+ "  Principle=" + n.format(amtApplied)
+ "  Interest=" + n.format(interestDue)
+ "  Balanace=" + n.format(price));
--term;
return --term;
}

while (term > 0) {
if(term == 240)
break;
interestDue = (price * (rate/100)) / 12;
amtApplied = payment - interestDue;
price = price - amtApplied;

System.out.println("Payment # "  + term
+ "  Principle=" + n.format(amtApplied)
+ "  Interest=" + n.format(interestDue)
+ "  Balanace=" + n.format(price));
--term;

}

In the second version, I could not get it to compile can you reaccess that version Please!

Can you explain what exactly you are calculating and how you need to calculate it. It is hard to know if you are doing it correctly unless we know exactly what you need to do.

while (term > 0) {
if(term == 300)
break;
interestDue = (price * (rate/100)) / 12;
amtApplied = payment - interestDue;
price = price - amtApplied;

System.out.println("Payment # "  + term
+ "  Principle=" + n.format(amtApplied)
+ "  Interest=" + n.format(interestDue)
+ "  Balanace=" + n.format(price));
--term;
return --term;
}

*******************************************************************
Instead of the above why not use:

while (term > 300) {

interestDue = (price * (rate/100)) / 12;
amtApplied = payment - interestDue;
price = price - amtApplied;

System.out.println("Payment # "  + term
+ "  Principle=" + n.format(amtApplied)
+ "  Interest=" + n.format(interestDue)
+ "  Balanace=" + n.format(price));
--term;

}

***********************************************************************************
There is no need for the:

if(term == 300) break;

Just change the condition in the while loop as i have shown. This has the same effect...the loop only goes untill term equals 300

Or better yet dont bother with the while loop. A for loop is designed to do what you are doing:

for (; term > 300; term--) {

interestDue = (price * (rate/100)) / 12;
amtApplied = payment - interestDue;
price = price - amtApplied;

System.out.println("Payment # "  + term
+ "  Principle=" + n.format(amtApplied)
+ "  Interest=" + n.format(interestDue)
+ "  Balanace=" + n.format(price));

}

That would also have the same effect.

Also I dont understand why you are using 2 while loops. You seem to be doing exactly the same thing in each one. So why not just do the following...it seems to me that this will have the same effect:

for (; term > 240; term--) {

interestDue = (price * (rate/100)) / 12;
amtApplied = payment - interestDue;
price = price - amtApplied;

System.out.println("Payment # "  + term
+ "  Principle=" + n.format(amtApplied)
+ "  Interest=" + n.format(interestDue)
+ "  Balanace=" + n.format(price));

}

*****************************************************************************
Also I dont understand why you need:

return --term

This is only used in methods to pass a value back to the method which called it. There is no reason I can think of why you would want to return a value in the main method as there is nothing to return to.

Its a while since iv done any java so if i am wrong please tell me, but as far as I know im correct.

Ehm, if this question gets closed and the other question in this topic area too then there are no more open questions in this topic area anymore. How can we, experts, earn any points if there just aren't any questions anymore? ;-)

Oh, just close it. No objections here. I'm just nagging a bit since this topic area seems dead and buried by now. :-(

I understand the frustration.  It is EE policy to close questions that don't have recent comments in them.  I think you will find that many Pascal questions are school or training related and once an answer is received they may or may not get closed.

Keep an eye on the TA it may get more questions.  If you look at the answered questions you will notice there is a lag between questions.
