### Which formula is to be used to calculate the credit card payments?

Essentially, the formula which is made use of in the credit card calculator is similar to the EMI payment formula & hence, the formulae which will be applicable for the credit card EMI payments have been mentioned here as well. An individual may use any one of the below given formulae for the EMI payments as far as the credit cards are in question.

**Credit card – EMI payment formula**

\(E\,=\, P \, \times r\, \times \frac {(\,1 \, +\, r\, )^{n}}{((\, 1 \, +\, r\,)^{n}\,-\, 1)}\)

We can see that in the above equation, EMI is represented by E while P stands for the principal loan amount. In addition to this, the rate of interest or the interest rate is represented by r & finally, the loan term or the tenure or the duration is denoted by n.

**Credit card EMI loan payment formula**

\(M\, =\, P\, (\frac{J}{\,1 \, -\, (\, 1 \, + \, J\, )^{-n}})\)

Furthermore, the credit card EMI loan payment calculation formula has been stated above & as per this formula, M happens to be the payment amount, while P is the principal or the amount of money which has been borrowed from the entity, J is the interest rate (not annual interest rate) & total number of payments is n.
