//Display the mortgage payment and then list the loan balance and interest paid for each payment over the term of the loan.
//If the list would scroll off the screen, use loops to display a partial list, hesitate, and then display more of the list.

System.out.println("\t\tThe length of loan is 30 years\n");

// start of loop to calculate interest paid and balance owe
// print statement as balance increment,as interest increment
for (int mpi =1; mpi<=length*12; mpi++) { // months of payment being decrimented start counter
monthly_interest = (balance*y_InterestRate);
