Joe is getting ready to buy a car. He has \$20,000 in investments earning 4.9% annually. The car also costs \$20,000. If he doesnâ€™t pay cash for the car, Joe can get a loan at 2.9% interest for 5 years. The loan is structured so that Joe pays one balloon payment at the end of 5 years. The balloon payment includes the principal plus all interest accrued over 5 years. If Joe takes the loan will he have enough money available from his investments to make the balloon payment? How much will he be short/have to spare?
