    Use Google Sheets formulas to calculate how much it will cost to pay back a loan. For example, use the PMT function to calculate the total payment per period. To get more details on the interest you will pay in a specific period, use the IPMT function. Lastly, you can also use the PPMT function to know how much you will reimburse in a specific period.

    In the previous video, you saw that it is not difficult to calculate loan payment information. By using formulas to calculate these values, you can change constants without having to worry about updating cells that reference them. You can then use auto-fill to quickly apply the formulas to more than one cell. Google Sheets allows you to take things one step further and compare two loan types and choose the one that is right for you.  FREE ACCESS
