/* Description: Interest Calculator  User inputs item price, down payment amount, the interest rate (compounded monthly) and the
monthly payment amount. The program outputs the total amount of months to pay off the line of credit, the interest charged each
month, the last months charged interest, and the amount of the last payment */
