1. 32000 = 620 + 620( 1 - (1+i)^-59)/i

My favourite webpage, Wolfram, says
http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=32000+%3D+620+%2B+620%28+1+-+%281%2Bx%29%5E-59%29%2Fx

i = .0052576 or
12i = .06309

which is 6.309% per annum , compounded monthly

(look past all that messy output to where it says,
real solution x = .0052576
