Rounding in the calculation of monthly interest rates is discouraged. Such rounding can lead to answers different from those presented here. For long-term loans, the differences may be pronounced.

Assume that you take out a $3000 loan for 30 months at 8% APR. How much of the first month's payment is interest?

$3,000  x  0.08 / 12 ==$20 - interest on the first month's payment.
