I have a mortgage amortization script that was working fine,now it seems to 
have gone awry. Below is the entire script plus input page.  I am getting an 

Warning: Division by zero in 
/home/content/J/a/y/Jayski/html/one2one/Ricksrecursivefunctions.php on line 

Which is  (pow($intCalc,$totalPayments) - 1);

Frankly I am not even sure the information is being passed to the script.

Anyone see what I am missing?
