In this case I will be investing $100 and the assumption is that it will be compounded monthly. Investing that for 5 years earning 5% p.a interest. My interest percent monthly will be 0.05/12, and I would get .0042%. Number of payments that is 12 months times 5 years for the first scenario to get 60 total payments. My payment is as discussed earlier of $100.00 a month.
