\$8000 add on interest rate of 11%

8000 x .11 = 880 add on interest/yr
880/yr x 4/yrs = 3520
3520/2 = 1760

1760 total interest on loan
1760 add on interest added to principal

8000 principal + 1760 towards principal
= 9760 total loan principal

9760/48 mo = 203.33/month payment

APR % = (APR x no. yrs)/2
APR % = (11 x 4)/2 = 44/2 = 22%

Total car cost
8000 orig loan
1760 add on interest towards principal
1760 loan interest
11520 sub total
2000 down payment
13520 total cost of car

1760 interest/8000 loan = .22 = 22% APR
