drwls,
This looks like an exercise in Table reading, but the table is hard to read.
The 25yr load entry in the 9.5% interest row is $8.73. That would be the monthly payment. 25 years is 300 months, so the total amount repaid would be $8.73 times that, or $2619.00
Of that amount, $1619.00 would be interest charges over the life of the loan. The rest is the return of the $1000 principal.

Jen,
What is the monthly payment on a 25year loan of $125,000 if the
annual interest is 9.5%
So for the 125,000 loan
monthly payment will be 8.73*125000/1000 = 1091.25
What are the total interest charges over the life of the loan?
1091.25*300 = 327375
Total Interest = 32737512500 = 202375
Is this correct
