  1. Let me ask you this...

    How much money is her 12% down payment?

    How much is she paying with 24 equal monthly payments of $195?

    If you can't answer those, tell me what you are thinking at least so that I can help.

  3. Good job on calculating the down payment.

    When we have the word "of," that means the same as "multiplied by."

    All we have to do is (24)(195) = 4680

    Add that to our down payment.

    504 + 4680 = $5184

  5. No, it's not a question at all. I wasn't familiar with the term "finance charge," so I assumed it was the total cost of the furniture. Anyway, "a finance charge is any fee representing the cost of credit, or the cost of borrowing."

    We are paying $5184 with the loan. Without the loan, it's only $4,200. Our cost of borrowing is the difference.

    5184 - 4200 = $984

    I learned something, too... finance charge. I'll have to remember that.
