Calculate the minimum payment on a credit card using the OCC's formula. First, multiply your outstanding balance by your APR. If, for example, you owe $1,500 on a card with 15 percent APR, the equation would be 1,500 x 0.15 = 225. Set this number aside to plug into the formula. Multiply your outstanding balance by 1 percent.

Your minimum payment may be calculated by taking a percent of the balance at the end of the billing cycle and adding the monthly finance charge. For example, your minimum payment is 1% of your balance. Your credit card balance is $1,000.

Credit card companies usually calculate interest charges on a monthly basis. Because months vary in length — e.g., January is 31 days and February is 28 days — most companies use DPRs to calculate interest. To calculate your DPR, divide your annual APR by 365 (the number of days in one year).

Calculating Credit Card Interest Calculate the monthly interest amount. For each cell in Row 6 where you have an account enter the following formula: "=[Letter]2*[Letter]3/12" in the cell and hit the Enter key. Compare interest to principal payments.
