How to Calculate EMI on a Loan

How to Calculate EMI on a Loan
EMI is commonly used for mortgage payments.

Multiply the amount borrowed by the periodic interest rate. For example, if you borrowed $305,000 and the monthly interest rate equals 0.0065 (or 7.8 percent per year), you would multiply $305,000 by 0.0065 to get $1,982.50.

Multiply the number of years in the term of the loan by 12 to calculate the number of monthly payments you will make on the loan and call the result P. For example, if you took out a 25-year loan, you would multiply 25 by 12 to get 300 monthly payments.

Plug in P, the number of monthly payments over the life of the loan, and R, the periodic interest rate, into the following expression: 1 - (1+R)^-P. In this example, you would plug in 0.0065 for R and 300 for P so your expression would be 1 - (1 + 0.0065) ^ -300, or 0.85682532.

Divide the result from step 1 by the result from step 3 to calculate your equated monthly payment. Finishing this example, you would divide $1,982.50 by 0.85682532 to find your EMI would be $2,313.77.
