So now I have removed extraneous code and stripped it back to bare essentials but there is still something not quite right
monthlyInterestRate = annualInterestRate/12
mmp = 10
while(balance > 0):
m = 1
mmp += 10
while(m <=12):
m += 1
balance = (balance  mmp)*(1 + monthlyInterestRate)
if(balance <= 0 and mmp > 0):
print 'Lowest payment: ', mmp
as this prints out 300

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How can mmp be equal or less than zero... it is initiated at 10. You are not resetting the balance on the within outer loop

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Just be patient and work through every problem slowly to fully understand it. Coding is relatively easy... to get to the solution of a problem is the tricky bit!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'd agree with that, Thanks anyway.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I too am not good at doing work on paper wither. At least the work I do is pretty disorganized. I make notes on what variables I need to change, and sketch outlines of the program, but all the important tweaking comes from me playing with the program. I guess that's just the debugging process.
