Answer #1

Cost of car = $33,277

Derek has 2 options to finace cost of this car.

**Option 1**

Use the zero percent financing option provided by dealership.

This means he has to pay $33,277 ($594.23 for 56 months)

**Option 2**

Borrow money from bank at 5.8% interest rate.

This means he has to pay to bank $1930.07 ($33,277*5.8%)

So in **Option
1** Derek has to pay a total of $33,277.

And in **Option
2** Derek has to pay a total of $33,277 + $1930.07 (as
interest).

If the dealership offers $1930.07 as cash back to him on paying full amount today, his financing cost becomes same ($33,277) for both options. Hence the anser is $1930.07.

**Derek would be willing to pay for the car in full today
if the dealership offers him $1930.07 cash
back.**
