Write an algorithm to settle the following question: A bank account starts out with 10,000. Interest is compounded monthly at 0.5 percent per month. Every month, $500 is withdrawn to meet college expenses. After how many years is the account depleted? – Note you don’t have to supply the number of years it takes the account to deplete just the “algorithm” that would be used to answer that question.

This is how far I've gotten. How would I loop this until whatever "new_amount" is equal to 0. And by the way I'm using Python.
