start_period, end_period, type). It calculates the cumulative interest paid over a
speciﬁed number of time periods and contains the same arguments as the PMT cell
formula. There are also two additional inputs, start_period and end_period; they
identify the period over which to accumulate interest payments.
For Padcha’s mortgage problem, the periods of interest are the ﬁrst year (1–12)
and the second year (13–24). This suggests the ﬁrst payment will begin in January
and the last will be in December. Since income taxes are paid annually, it makes
sense to accumulate over a yearly time horizon. Of course, if payments do not begin
in January, we must select the end_period to reﬂect the true number of payments
