  1. Deposit 5% = 5%X$85000 = $4250
    Amount left = $85000 - $4250 = $80750
    One year interest = 9.5% X $80750 = 7671.25
    20 years interest = $153425
    30 years interest= $230137.50
    Saving is $76712.5

  2. Sorry Many, but there two major flaws with your answer.
    1. You are using simple interest, but mortgages are based on compound interest
    2. You can't just multiply the first year's interest times 20 and 30. Are there no payments made? If payments are made then the annual interest paid would be decreasing.

    The question requires much more complicated arithmetic. You would first of all find the monthly payments for each of the options and go from there.
    Tracy, at what level of mathematics are you studying this?
