**economyst**, Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 9:40amSo the loan (B0) was 150*.8 = 120K

The balance after 1 year and 1 payment would be B1=B0*(1.08)-P.

B2=(B1*(1.08)-P = B0*(1.08)^2 - P*(1.08) - P

....

B15 = B0(1.08)^15 - sum(P*(1.08)^i)

Solve for the annual payment P such that B15=0.

An Excel spreadsheet can handle this otherwise tedious calculation rather quickly.
