Java Mortgage Amortization

I have completed this much of it but need the program somehow to only display the payments based upon a 5.75% rate but when I change it to only reflect a 30 year loan at 5.75%, it does not compile.  This actually compiles but the payments are all jacked and I can't figure it out.  I am trying to show the $200,000 balance and the first payment as well as interest paid and continue displaying this until the balance is zero.  Please help !  Here's what I have now:

//import the java classes
import java.text.NumberFormat;
import java.util.Locale;

public class MortgageMulti {
    //MortgageMulti is the existing function
    public static void main(String[] arguments) {

        //hard code the value of the mortgage
        double mortgage = 200000.00;
        //hard code in the yearly interst rate
        double[][] yearsYearlyRate = {
            { 7, 15, 30 },
            { 5.35, 5.5, 5.75 }
        };
        //then code in the value for the number of times a year mulitplied by
        // the amoutn paid each time
        double[][] monthsMonthlyRt = {
            { yearsYearlyRate[0][0] * 12, yearsYearlyRate[0][1] * 12,
              yearsYearlyRate[0][2] * 12
            },
            { yearsYearlyRate[1][0] / 1200, yearsYearlyRate[1][1] / 1200,
              yearsYearlyRate[1][2] / 1200
            }
        };

        for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) {

            //Call the method
            double payment = calPayment(monthsMonthlyRt[1][i], monthsMonthlyRt[0][i], mortgage);

            // Display the monthly payment
            System.out.println("\nMortgage Amount \tTerm \t\tRate \t\tMonthly Payment");
            System.out.println("$200,000 \t\t" + yearsYearlyRate[0][i] + " years\t"
                    + yearsYearlyRate[1][i] + "%\t\t" + payment);

            System.out.println("\nMonth # \tInterest for the Month \t\tLoan Balance");

            // Call the method
            interestBalanceList(mortgage, monthsMonthlyRt[1][i], monthsMonthlyRt[0][i], payment);
        }
    }

    // Utility method to calculate the monthly mortgage payment
    // (1st error spotted)public static double calPayment(double param1, double
    // param2, double mortgage);
    public static double calPayment(double param1, double param2, double mortgage) {

        // Calculate the monthlyPayment of the mortgage
        double monthlyPayment = (param1 + param2 / (Math.pow((1 + param1), param2) - 1)) * mortgage;

        return monthlyPayment;
    }

    // Utility method to list the interest paid and loan balance
    public static void interestBalanceList(double mortgage, double param1, double param2,
            double payment) {

        // Use the for loop to display the list
        for (int i = 1; i < (param2 + 1); i++) {

            // Pause the list and go to the next month and next amount
            System.out.println("Hit the 'ENTER' key to exit.");
            try {
                System.in.read();
            } catch (Exception e) {
            }
            // Calculate the monthlyInterest
            double monthlyInterest = mortgage * param1;

            // Calculate the loanBlance
            double loanRemaining = mortgage - (payment - monthlyInterest);

            // Set the value of mortgageAmount to the value of loanRemaining
            mortgage = loanRemaining;

            // Formate the monthlyInterest into U.S. currency
            NumberFormat n = NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance(Locale.US);
            String str = n.format(monthlyInterest);

            // Formate the loanRemaining into U.S. currency
            NumberFormat num = NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance(Locale.US);
            String string = num.format(loanRemaining);

            // Display the month #, interest paid and loan balance
            System.out.println("\n " + i + "\t\t " + str + "\t\t\t" + string);

        }
    }
}

use the above method instead of yours... now the code works

Hi waw9667

can you be more specific? I am not sure I understand what exactly you would like to do.

Cheers

>>  double monthlyPayment = (param1 + param2 / (Math.pow((1 + param1), param2) - 1)) * mortgage;

i think this is not correct,

monthly payment is greater the mortage itself, so you get negative balance and it keeps on increasing in negative

I'll be more specific with what I am trying to do.  The program should do something like this:

Mortgage Payment     |     Interest Rate     |     Interest Paid     |     New Balance

The program starts with a balance of $200,000 and the four categories above will obviously display new numbers on every line as the loan will be decreasing and I need to do this until the loan reaches zero.  I hope this gives you a better understanding of what I am trying to accomplish and I certainly appreciate your speedy response to my post.  I am staying home from work today with much hope that I can get this completed which means I will be on the computer all day, so I will also be able to respond back just as timely.  Thank you for your help.

did u check that formula,

waw9667Author Commented:
I can definitely see what you're saying about the formula and that would explain why it compiles the way it does.  However, I have not successfully changed the formula yet.

check this link for formula on mortage calculator,

http://infoscouts.com/finance/mortgagecalc.htm

try giving the monthly payments as given by the calculator,

your code is working fine

I forgot to mention that this program is without a GUI.

waw9667Author Commented:
However, I am assuming you wanted me to view the source code of that calculator.  Am I correct ?

Again, thank you for your incredibly fast response time.  My only problem here is that I want the payments to calculate at a 5.75% interest rate on a 30 year loan and not 7 but when I manipulate the code to my desired data, it will not compile.  Here is my code for displaying the monthly payment on a $200,000 loan at 5.75% on a 30 year term:

import java.io.*;
import java.util.Date;
import java.text.DecimalFormat;

//More java packages can be added here for the Week Three Assignment

public class Mortgage

{
public static void main(String[] args)


      {

Date currentDate = new Date();
//Date Constructor
DecimalFormat decimalPlaces = new DecimalFormat("$0.00");

//Declaring Variables
double dPrincipal = 200000.00; //Total Loan or Principal Amount
double dInterest = .0575;  //Interest Rate all Payments are Calculated at
double dTerm = 12*30; //Total Term of Loan in Months
double dMonthlyInterest = dInterest/12;


//Declaring Variables

final double dMonthly = dPrincipal * (dMonthlyInterest / (1 - Math.pow(1 + dMonthlyInterest,-dTerm)));
//The above formula calculates and determines the exact monthly payment based upon input

//The following code will display the output of the program
System.out.println("\t\t" + currentDate);
System.out.println("\t\tThe Total Loan Amount is: " + decimalPlaces.format(dPrincipal));
System.out.println("\t\tThe Calculated Interest Rate is: " + dInterest);
System.out.println("\t\tThe Total Number of Monthly Payments is: " + dTerm);
System.out.println("\t\tThe Total Monthly Payment is: " + decimalPlaces.format(dMonthly));

      }

}

I simply need to incorporate what you've helped me with as well as what I've completed, and apply it somehow within this code.  This piece compiles nicely and I would like for you to run it so that you can see what it looks like and I think after doing so, you will see what I meant by the interest rate and term of the loan.

mukundha_expertCommented:
do you mean to say that you want to display the monthly status only for 30 year loan..??

if so, you can change the fiirst code to get that

>> for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) {

>>            //Call the method
>>            double payment = calPayment(monthsMonthlyRt[1][i], monthsMonthlyRt[0][i], mortgage);


set i = 2, it will do for 30 year loan with 5.75%
