Need help with amortization table design

I am having an extremely difficult time coming up with the code and design for a Mortgage Calculator that will provide an Amortization Table. The table must include this information:

1. Loan Balance
2. Principal Balance
3. Interest Balance
4. Total Principal Paid
5. Total Interest Paid

I am new to Java so if anyone can give me some coding suggestions or advice/help I would greatly appreciate it.

Write out the formulas to calculate everything you need to calculate.

Decide what your variables are and give them good names.

Decide what Java primitive types your varibles should be.

Try writing some code (no graphical interface yet) and if you run into trouble and need help then show us what you have (use CODE /CODE flags)and tell us what problems you've been having.

Good luck!
