remaining payments of \$410 on a new car. What maximum monthly
payment does the bank’s loan officer feel that the Browns can afford?

You would need to know more about their other expenses to answer this question. Are you talking about a bank mortgage loan?

1. I agree with DrWLS. The question is not answerable as stated.

Is it possible that it refers to some previous information?

2. Since they have aready been paying off a car loan at \$410 per month for about three years, a bank officer considering a new car loan would probably assume they can afford to make similar or slightly higher payments on a new car, assuming they traded in the old one. But first, their credit rating and income sources should be checked.

3. Thats exactly why I am confused but this is what the question says and there is no additional information about this.. Maybe its a trick question
the answer is \$410 only for 12 more months as they are already paying..
