# CUMPRINC

### Definition of CUMPRINC

Calculates the cumulative principal paid over a range of payment periods for an investment based on constant-amount periodic payments and a constant interest rate.

### Sample Usage

`CUMPRINC(0.12,12,100,1,5,0)`

`CUMPRINC(A2,B2,C2,D2,E2,1)`

### Syntax

`CUMPRINC(rate, number_of_periods, present_value, first_period, last_period, end_or_beginning)`

`rate`

- The interest rate.`number_of_periods`

- The number of payments to be made.`present_value`

- The current value of the annuity.`first_period`

- The number of the payment period to begin the cumulative calculation.`first_period`

must be greater than or equal to`1`

.

`last_period`

- The number of the payment period to end the cumulative calculation.`last_period`

must be greater than`first_period`

.

`end_or_beginning`

- Whether payments are due at the end (`0`

) or beginning (`1`

) of each period.

### Notes

- Ensure that consistent units are used for
`rate`

and`number_of_periods`

. For example, a car loan for 36 months may be paid monthly, in which case the annual percentage rate should be divided by 12 and the number of payments is 36. On the other hand, a different type of loan of the same length might be paid quarterly, in which case the annual percentage rate should be divided by 4 and the number of payments would be 12.

### To use the CUMPRINC Formula, simply begin with your edited Excellentable:

### Start typing the CUMPRINC formula in the cell you want the result to show:

`rate`

- The interest rate.`nper`

- The number of payments to be made. The NPER formula can be used to calculate this value.`pval`

- The current value of the annuity. The PV formula can be used to calculate this value.`startperiod`

- The number of the payment period to begin the cumulative calculation.`first_period`

must be greater than or equal to`1`

.

`endperiod`

- The number of the payment period to end the cumulative calculation.`last_period`

must be greater than`first_period`

.

- paytype - Whether payments are due at the end (
`0`

) or beginning (`1`

) of each period.
