      Note: To use this table to calculate a monthly mortgage payment, divide the amount borrowed by 1,000 and
      multiply by the appropriate figure in the table where the interest rate and the time period for the loan
      intersect. For example, a $150,000 loan for 30 years at 9 percent would require a payment of $1,206.93
      [($150.000/1,000) x 8.0462]; over 15 years it would require a payment of $1,521.41.
