  1. 750/mo. * 360mo. = $270,000 = Total cost,
    P = (Po*r*t)/(1-(1+r)-t) = 270,000,
    r = 0.04/12 = 0.000328/mo.
    a. (Po*0.000328*360)/(1-1.000328^-360) = 270,000,
    (Po*0.1180)/(0.1114) = 270,000,
    1.059Po = 270,000,
    Po = $254,898.31 = Max. amount that can be borrowed.

    b. 254,898.31 + 20,000 = $274,898.31 = Max. amt. of home that I can afford.
