Residual Value (F)

Interest Rate % (R)

Number of Months (N)

Monthly Payment (P): 
The primary reason that leasing generally yields lower monthly payments is that although you are still paying the interest based on the full amount of the loan, the capital parts of the payments only have to add up to the difference between the loan and the Residual Value.

Residual Value (F)

Monthly Payment (P)

Number of Months (N)

Interest Rate % (R):
