The Loan Calculator can be used to calculate monthly EMI of the loan by taking the total amount, months to repay and the rate of interest.

Approach: The approach is very simple, we will take 3 inputs from user i.e. amount (total loan amount), rate (the rate of interest) and months (number o months to repay). Using these three, we can calculate the total amount. At last we will display the total amount.


interest = (amount * (rate * 0.01))/months;
total = ((amount/months) + interest);

Using HTML we are designing the simple structure and giving style using CSS(internal CSS). At the time of input we are calling calculate() function and displaying the result. The calculate() function takes input using HTML attribute named – onchange (the onchange attribute fires the moment when the value of the element is changed).

Prerequisite: Basics concepts of HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Implementation: We will make two separate files i.e. HTML and JavaScript and link the JavaScript file within HTML file.

  • HTML – (index.html)
  • JavaScript – (app.js)

HTML File:


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <title>Loan Calculator</title>
        body {
            background-color: yellow;
            font-family: 'Trebuchet MS';
        h1 {
            font-size: 35px;
        h1 {
            font-size: 21px;
            margin-top: 20px;
        .calculator {
            width: 400px;
            height: 450px;
            background-color: black;
            position: absolute;
            left: 50%;
            top: 50%;
            transform: translateX(-50%) translateY(-50%);
            padding: 20px 0px 0px 100px;
            border-radius: 50px;
            color: white;
        input {
            padding: 7px;
            width: 70%;
            margin-top: 7px;
    <div class="calculator">
        <h1>Loan Calculator</h1>
        <!-- Calling Calculate function defined in app.js -->
        <p>Amount (₹)     :
            <input id="amount" type="number" 
        <p>Interest Rate  :
            <input id="rate" type="number" 
        <p>Months to Pay :
            <input id="months" type="number" 
        <h2 id="total"></h2>
    <script src="app.js"></script>

JavaScript File:


function Calculate() {
    // Extracting value in the amount 
    // section in the variable
    const amount = document.querySelector("#amount").value;
    // Extracting value in the interest
    // rate section in the variable
    const rate = document.querySelector("#rate").value;
    // Extracting value in the months 
    // section in the variable
    const months = document.querySelector("#months").value;
    // Calculating interest per month
    const interest = (amount * (rate * 0.01)) / months;
    // Calculating total payment
    const total = ((amount / months) + interest).toFixed(2);
        .innerHTML = "EMI : (₹)" + total;
