  1. for the savings multiply .25 by your 780 cash save your answer then start a new problem and multiply your 85 by your 8 months then add both of those answers into one. next take that number and minus off your cash($780) and that is your savings, i am too shaky on the rest to help with that. i hope this is a start

  2. option 1: cash = 780

    option 2: down payment 25% of 780 = 195
    $ 85 for 8 monts = 680
    total paid = 680+195 = 875

    saved by paying cash or interest charged = 875-780 = 95

    rate = interest/(principal x time) = 95/(780(8/12) = .183 or 18.3%
