Rebecca and Tom Payton have decided to buy a home that costs $200,000. The Paytons can put down 20% of the home's price. They have applied for a 15year, 9% FRM to finance the balance. They Paytons have a combined gross annual income of $70,000.
A.)$ 200,000
B.)$ 174,400
C.)$ 292,108
I've asked this before, but the answer someone else got wasn't one of the options.

What is your question?

precal  Anonymous, Saturday, September 11, 2010 at 4:57pm
How much will the Paytons pay to satisfy their mortgage loan, if they make all the payments on time for the amount being financed?

You have not asked a question. What are the choices supposed to represent?

They start the mortgage owing $160,000. For a ball park estimate, they will have an average balance of about 100,000 for 15 years, and will have to pay about 135,000 in interest, plus the principle. That would make a total of 295,000. (c) is the closest to that. There are formulas you could use fr the exact value, but since this is multiple choice, a quick estimate makes more sense.

That was a very close estimate!
Using the formula, I calculated:
Pt = 292108.80,
Monthly = 1622.83,
Int = 132108.78.
FORMULA:Pt =(Po*r*t) / (1  (1 + r)^t
Pt = Payback amt.
Po = Loan amt.
r = Monthly int rate expressed as a decimal.
t = Length of loan(15 years).
