1. a. (42,650-5100)/60 = %625.83/mo.

b. P = (Po*r*t)/(1-(1+r)^-t)

Po = 42,650-5100 = 37550

r = (2.5%/12)/100% = 0.00208

t = 60 Months.

Plug the above values into the given Eq and get:
P = \$39,984.81

39984.81/60mo = \$666.41/mo. = Monthly payments.

c. I = (39984.81-37550)/5yrs = \$486.96/
yr.

APR = (486.96/37550)*100% = 1.30%
