Answer #1

Amount borrowed (PV) = \$1,000,000

No of monthly installments (N) = 360

Interest rate per month (i) = 6% / 12 = 0.50% p.m.

Monthly installment (PMT) = ??

Using financial calculator or PMT function in excel,

Monthly installment (PMT) = \$ 5,995.51

interest portion in 1st payment = loan Amount outstanding at the beginning of 1st payment x monthly interest rate

interest portion in 1st payment = 1000,000 x 0.5% = \$5,000

Therefore principal portion of first payment = payment - interest portion = \$ 5,995.51 - \$ 5,000 = \$ 995.51

Thumbs up please if satisfied. Thanks :)
