    4% x 30 years x 20k = 24000
    18% x 10 years x 20k = 36000

    But that's if you didn't pay anything until your 10/30 years were up, if the interest is worked out on the remaining amount then it'd be less than this. … It's been a while since I did yr 11 maths :P

    Is this for a mortgage?

    Try this one, it gives you rapayments and total interest paid.

    Thanks heaps yes it's for a mortgage. Just trying to see if the higher rate for shorter would work out better but looks like it doesn't..
