  3. This site lets you figure the amount of payments based on the amount of the loan, interest rate, and time.

    http://www.bankrate.com/brm/mortgage-calculator.asp?unroundedPayment=853.8868573098035&loanAmount=95000.00&nrOfYears=15&nrOfMonths=180&interestRate=7.00&startMonth=4&startDay=5&startYear=2008&monthlyPayment=853.89&monthlyAdditional=0&yearlyAdditional=0&yearlyAdditionalMonth=4&oneAdditional=0&oneAdditionalMonth=4&oneAdditionalYear=2008&paidOffDate=May+5%2C+2023&submit.x=39&submit.y=7

  4. monthly rate = .07/12
    = .0058333

    present value = 850(1 - 1.0058333^-180)/.0058333
    = 94568
