Sometimes there is a need to estimate a
mortgage’s unpaid balance as of a certain date. For
example, assume a $50,000 loan was made for 25
years at an 8 percent rate. The appropriate mortgage
constant is 0.0937 and the annual payment is
$4,685.
Loan amount ´ Mortgage constant = Annual payment
$50,000 ´ .0937 = $4,685
