We took out an auto loan in 2019 on a GMC vehicle and discovered that Bank of America uses Simple Interest for auto loans. The explanation is as follows. Is this possible to model this in MondeyDance as a loan?

Explanation of Simple Interest Calculation
 
Interest on your loan accrues daily. It is for this reason that the portion of your monthly payment
allocated to interest may fluctuate. To calculate the interest due on your loan, please follow the
steps below:
1. Obtain the new principal balance of your loan from your Online Banking Account Services
page or the automated phone service.
2. Multiply your principal balance by your interest rate. Divide your answer by 365 days (366
days in a leap year) to find your daily interest accrual or your per diem.
3. Multiply this amount by the number of calendar days that have elapsed since the date of
your last payment to find your interest due.
Below is an example of how the number of calendar days between payments can affect the portion
of your regular payment allocated to interest.
1. $10,000 principle balance
2. $10,000 multiplied by 8.5% interest divided by 365 days in the year = $2.33 per diem
3. $2.33 multiplied by 33 days elapsed since the date of your last payment = $76.85. This
portion of your payment will be allocated to interest accrued.
Now let us consider that only 29 days have elapsed between payments.
1. $10,000 principle balance
2. $10,000 multiplied by 8.5% interest divided by 365 days in the year = $2.33 per diem
3. $2.33 multiplied by 29 days elapsed since the date of your last payment = $67.53. This
portion of your payment will be allocated to interest accrued.
In this example, the difference of 4 days between payments affected the portion of the payment
allocated to interest by $9.32.
