## Examples

You have a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage at 6.5%, on an initial loan amount of \$350K. What is your monthly mortgage payment?

`-Pmt(6.5%/12, 30*12, \$350K) → \$2212.24`

Note: The result is negative since you are paying that amount each month. The loan amount is positive since you receive that amount at the present (start) period. Inflows are positive, outflows are negative.
