I'm having trouble with ps1b, my code doesn't work for a monthly payment that's bigger than 10 $. But I don't know why. Can someone help me?
balance = float(raw_input("Enter the outstanding balance: "))
an_int_rate = float(raw_input("Enter the annual interest rate as a decimal: "))
mon_int_rate = an_int_rate/12
mon_pay = 0;
while balance > 0:
mon_pay += 10
n = 0
while n < 12 and balance > 0:
print mon_pay, n
n += 1
interest = mon_int_rate * balance
balance = mon_pay
balance += interest
balance = round(balance,2)

Found my mistake. I used the "wrong" balance. Sorry I assumed that there are more people doing the same course (mit 6.00), that would know what I'm talking about.
