#### Calculate total interest paid on a loan in Excel

For example, you have borrowed \$100000 from bank in total, the annual loan interest rate is 5.20%, and you will pay the bank every month in the coming 3 years as below screenshot shown. Now you can calculate the total interest you will pay on the load easily as follows:

Select the cell you will place the calculated result in, type the formula =CUMIPMT(B2/12,B3*12,B1,B4,B5,1), and press the Enter key. See screenshot:

Note: In the formula, B2 is the annual loan interest rate, B2/12 will get the monthly rate; B3 is the years of the loan, B3*12 will get the total number of periods (months) during the loan; B1 is the total amount of loan; B4 is the first period you pay the bank, while B5 is the last period you pay the bank.
