A homeowner planning a kitchen remodeling can afford a $200 monthly payment. How much can the homeowner borrow for 3 years at 5%, compounded monthly, and still stay within the budget? (Round your answer to the nearest cent.)

so you are looking for the Present Value of 36 payments of $200 at a monthly rate of .00416666
PV = 200 (1  1.00416666^36)/.00416666
= 6673.14 
thank you so much. I am not sure where my figures were coming from at all. Thanks again!
