Suppose that you want to purchase a home for $450,000 with a 30 year mortgage at 6% interest. Suppose that you can put 30% down. Assume that the monthly cost to finance $1,000 is $6.00. What are the monthly payments?

Steps or examples please

"..the monthly cost to finance $1,000 is $6.00"

I read that to say that the monthly rate of interest is .006

after downpayment you are left with 315000 to mortgage

let the payment be P

315000 = P(1 - 1.006^-360)/.006

I get P = $2138.18

Thanks. But I am trying to figure out how did you get $2138.18 I did the calculations but I do not come up with your answer.
