This is the formula to calculate:

E = P×r×(1 + r)n/((1 + r)n - 1)

E is monthly payment

where P is Principle Loan Amount = $9,500

r is rate of interest calculated in monthly basis it should be = Rate of Annual interest/12/100 = 11/12/100 = 0.00917

n = no. of months = 4*12 = 48 months

So E = 9500×11×(1 + 11)48/((1 + 11)48 - 1)

The value of E turns out to be $ 245.53


Happy to help.
