  • Janese Kikuchi Japan Mortgage loans, be very careful into checking the interest rates of your house mortgage taking consideration of how much you have save, how many years you are going to pay. Study it closely before engaging into a mortgage loan. Do the math by calculating it with many different interest rates; different terms; different tax rates; range to different down payments; using different types of fixed mortgages calculate closely using the spreadsheet. Find mortgage calculator.xls using Microsoft 2007 format, this can help with calculations. 2013-04-09 03:04:18
  • Janese Kikuchi Japan To be able to find the approximate calculations of the compounded interest using the RULE OF 72 to find out how long does it take to double the money that you have invested in a certain project you plan to do. It shows here that if you use low interest rate you also use the lower number rule and it works good, RULE 72 shows pretty good approximation it is the easy way to figure out how fast it is going to take you to double the money you have invested. 2013-04-09 02:04:03
