    Oh, 0.004 is expected. I'm getting the error and when I println the problem it shows interest as a 0. Why the difference is what I can't figure out. Not sure why it's getting a 0.

    That is basically the point of the exercise. It's a debugging exercise and I can't figure out how to fix this one completely.

    The interest rate I need is determined by the annual interest in decimal form presented earlier (in first code) instituted into the second code.

    Re: Programming Exercise Help

    payment = ((1/interest)-(1/(interest*Math.pow(1+interest,months))))/loanAmt;
