Hi I built this code that runs well. Is about calculating a student loan... The problem is that I wish I could create a table that will tell me in each column "payment number", "remaining balance", "interest amount", "principal amount" Can you help me do this? I am new to python and this is not for a python class... I am just trying to build a math model and I thought that since python is a free program and I have used it once before... that I could use it again during my presentation in class.

Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?

Or it doesn't even have to be a table maybe a list of all the payments broken down till is paid off...

This is my code so far.

Code:

```
def calcDebt (principal, interestRate, numPayments, freqPayment):
#This code will make different predictions to pay off student loan
#Input Meanings
'''
Inputs
- interestRate - The Interest Rate of a Loan
- numPayments - The Number of Payments Needed
- principal - The Original Student Loan Amount
- freqPayment - Frequency of Payments Based on Weekly, Monthly, Annually
- m - The Minimum Payment Rate of Student Loan
Returns
- paymentAmount - The Payment Amount Will Be
- minimumPayment - The Least Amount Needed to Pay
'''
freqPayment_lookup = {'weekly': 52, 'monthly':12, 'annually':1}
interestRate = float(interestRate) / 100
x = interestRate/freqPayment_lookup[freqPayment]
y = (1.0 + x) ** numPayments
z = x/(y - 1.0)
paymentAmount = (x + z) * principal
return paymentAmount
def main():
a = input('Student Loan Amount: ')
i = input('Student Loan Interest Rate: ')
n = input('Number of Payments: ')
f = None
while f not in ['weekly', 'monthly', 'annually']:
if f:
f = raw_input('Sorry! That is NOT an Option. Please Enter weekly, monthly, or annually: ').lower()
else:
f = raw_input('How Often Do You Want To Make Your Payments? ').lower()
m = input('Do You Know Your Minimum Payment Rate? If So, That is: ')
payment = calcDebt(a, i, n, f)
print 'Your %s payment will be %.2f' % (f, payment)
minimumPayment = a * m / 100
minToInterest = round((i/100)/12 *a)
minToPrincipal = round(minimumPayment - (i/100)/12 * a)
print 'You Must Pay ATLEAST the Minimum of:', minimumPayment
print 'IF Only Minimum is Paid, This Amount Goes to Interest:', minToInterest
print 'IF Only Minimum is Paid, This Amount Goes to Principal:', minToPrincipal
if __name__ == '__main__':
main()
raw_input('Please Press Enter to Exit')
```
