To solve for payment (PMT) on a financial calculator, you first need to input the known values into the calculator. These values typically include the principal amount, interest rate, and number of periods for the loan or investment. Once you have entered these values, you can then input the function key for calculating payment, which is typically denoted as "PMT" on most financial calculators. After pressing the PMT key, the calculator will then compute the payment amount for you based on the values entered. This payment amount represents the regular, periodic amount that needs to be paid or received in order to satisfy the terms of the loan or investment.

## How to use the amortization schedule feature on a financial calculator?

- Turn on your financial calculator and input the necessary information. This typically includes the principal loan amount, the interest rate, the loan term in years, and the payment frequency (monthly, quarterly, etc.).

- You can also use the amortization schedule to calculate different scenarios, such as how making extra payments or increasing the loan term will affect your overall loan repayment.
