###### Calculate compound interest in Python

Lets see how to calculate compound interest in Python! Very simple and straight forward.

```
principal = 100000
yearly_rate = 0.05
years = 30
yearly_addition = 10000
# calculate the principal and interest for each year
data = []
for i in range(1, years+1):
principal = principal + yearly_addition
interest = principal * yearly_rate
principal = principal + interest
data.append(principal)
print(f"Year {i} - Principal: {principal}, Interest: {interest}")
```

Below code will calculate the monthly payment

```
# calculate the monthly payment
n = years * 12
r = interest_rate/12
monthly_payment = (principal * r) / (1 - (1 + r)**-n)
print(monthly_payment)
```
