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

    How can mmp be equal or less than zero... it is initiated at 10. You are not resetting the balance on the within outer loop

    Finally got it passed grader, it was, among st other things the balance defined in x to be inserted at the reset point

    I have rather a lot of work to do to get any good at this though.

    I cant get a proper way to work out the stuff on paper, doing it on screen and forgetting half of it

    Just 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!

    I 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.
