I have set up an Operating lease and right of use asset in my sandbox.

For the right of use asset the residual value is the negative total interest.

The PV of my lease payments is $3,938,963.88/60 (life of lease)= $65649.39

$71,142.71 X60 = $4,268,562.60

The difference is the total interest on the operating lease, $329,598.60
