How are fractions of a penny calculated? As a typical in banking, when calculating the monthely payment fractions of a penny are rounded up to the nearest whole penny. As a result, the final payment may be as much as a couple dollars less, depending on the length of the loan. This ensures the loan will be paid in full, and on time. The alternative - rounding to the nearest penny - can result in a final payment that is slightly more than average or lengthening the term of the loan.
