The average monthly balance is calculated by adding the ending monthly balance for the period (usually 12 months) and dividing this by the period. e.g. For a period of 12 mos with an ending balance at the end of each month of $12 you would have 12+12+12+12+12+12+12+12+12+12+12+12=144 and 144/12= $12. Therefore the average balance over the period is then $12. Hopes this helps.
