EXAMPLE:CUMIPMT IN EXCEL
Let us try an example for the calculating the interest for a particular period.
Suppose we have the loan of 100000 dollars.
We took the loan for one year and will be paying monthly.
Rate of interest is 10% per annum.
Let us calculate the cumulated interest for the complete period.
Let us finalize the arguments for our formula
INTEREST RATE =10/12% as monthly payment so interest rate also converted to monthly.
NUMBER OF PAYMENT PERIODS 12 as payment is monthly for one year.
CURRENT VALUE is 100000 dollars
STARTING PERIOD is 1
LAST PERIOD is 12
TYPE is 0
STEPS TO USE COUPPCD
As we paid the interest monthly, the rate of interest was divided by 12.
The result comes out to be 5499.06 which will be the cumulative interest for the 12 months.
