### Annual Percentage Rate Calculations With Fees

Borrowers are usually charged fees in connection with the issuance of a mortgage,
which effectively raises the interest rate. The actual amount received by the
borrower (PV) is reduced, while the periodic payments remain the same. Given the
life or term of the mortgage, the interest rate, the mortgage amount, and the basis
of the fee charge (how the fee is calculated), the true Annual Percentage Rate (APR)
may be calculated. Information is entered as follows:
1. Press gÂ and fCLEARG.
