Below is the formula for figuring this out. http://www.hughchou.org/calc/formula.html "First you must define some variables to make it easier to set up: P = principal, the initial amount of the loan I = the annual interest rate (from 1 to 100 percent) L = length, the length (in years) of the loan, or at least the length over which the loan is amortized. The following assumes a typical conventional loan where the interest is compounded monthly. First I will define two more variables to make the calculations easier: J = monthly interest in decimal form = I / (12 x 100) N = number of months over which loan is amortized = L x 12" You can use this for yearly payments as well. Just use the number of years for "N" and the annual interest rate for "J". M = P * ( J / (1  (1 + J) ** N)) M = 1000 * (.08 / (1  (1 + .08) ** 4)) M = 1000 * (.08 / (1  (1.08) ** 4)) M = 1000 * (.08 / (1  .73503)) M = 1000 * (.08 / .26497) M = 1000 * .30192 M = 301.92 If you need any further explanation please let me know by posting a request for clarification. Thanks!

Can you clarify, please? What do you mean by "How can I show that the annual payment is $301.92?" Do you mean that you know that is definitely the payment? Or is that the payment you're hoping for? Or do you really want to know what the 4 equal payment amounts will be?
