in the first month the borrowings would be 80 restoring the balance to 40 which becomes to opening balance for the following month, etc

BUT there is 7.5% interest. That interest is then paid and you have to have a minimum of 40,000 in the account. . . ?!

in my experience interest is determined and paid in arrears so if you borrow 80 and repay it in a subsequent month you repay 81. If you want to be more precise you will have to expand to whole numbers instead of thousands. I have said this to others, there is such a thing as overthinking a problem assume the simplist explanation unless you are told otherwise
perhaps these numbers will mean something to you without captions they are meaningless but you already have a table into which they fit, press the reply button to restore the format

It is a shame this site doesn't allow you to maintain formatting of a table
