Under the terms of her finance agreement, she is required to to make payments of 100 dollars per month for 36 months.

a) What is the cash price of the car?
b)How much, in total, will Jane spend on interest charges?

  • Finance Math -

    n = 36
    i = .058/12 = .0048333... ( store that in calculator's memory)

    Present value of her loan
    = 100( 1 - (1+.058/12)^-36)/(.058/12)
    = $3296.91

    plus her downpayment of $1500
    would give a present value of $4796.91
