P = (Po*r*t)/(1-(1+r)^-t).

r = (6%/12) / 100% = 0.005 = Monthly %

rate expressed as a decimal.

t = 12mo/yr * 20yrs = 240 Months.

Po = 0.8 * 190,00 = $152,000.

P=(152000*0.005*240) / (1-(1.005)^-240

= 182400 / 0.69790 = $261,354.05

Monthly(I+P) = 261,354.05/240 = $1088.98.

Int. = P - Po = 261,354.05 - 152,000 =

$109,354.05.
