## Dls Formula

DLS = P / (1 + r)^n

The following formula is used to calculate the Discounted Loan Sum (DLS).Variables:

- DLS is the Discounted Loan Sum P is the principal loan amount r is the discount rate per period n is the total number of periods

To calculate the Discounted Loan Sum, divide the principal loan amount by the result of adding 1 to the discount rate and raising it to the power of the total number of periods.

## How to Calculate Dls?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Discounted Loan Sum (DLS) using the formula: DLS = P / (1 + r)^n.

- First, determine the principal loan amount (P).
- Next, determine the discount rate per period (r).
- Next, determine the total number of periods (n).
- Next, insert the values of P, r, and n into the formula DLS = P / (1 + r)^n.
- Finally, calculate the Discounted Loan Sum (DLS).
- After calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge:

Principal loan amount (P) = $5000

Discount rate per period (r) = 0.05

Total number of periods (n) = 10
