. Purchased Lab Equipment (7 year tax life) from “Photonics” –
Photonics offered me a zero interest loan for \$20,000 (total).
The note is due in 5 years. We must make monthly payments beginning today. A similar situation would bear an 8% compounding interest. No S.V.

A = 20,000
Rate = 8% p.a.
N = 5 yrs.
Calculate (P) = actual cost of lab equipment.
A = P(1+0.08) = 20,000
P = 20,000/1.08 = 18,518
Hence the cost is \$18,518.
Interest = 20,000 – 18,518 = \$1482....
