Phil can afford $150 a month for 6 years for a car loan. If the interest rate is 5.5 percent compounded monthly, how much can he afford to borrow to purchase a car? rev: 10_26_2013_QC_37910

$9,364.74

$9,181.11

$10,800.00

$9,504.00

$7,770.23

Answer #1

**The amount is computed as shown below:**

**Present value = Monthly payment x [ (1 – 1 / (1 +
r) ^{n}) / r ]**

**r is computed as follows:**

= 5.5% / 12 (Since the payments are on monthly basis, hence divided by 12)

**= 0.458333333% or 0.00458333333**

**n is computed as follows:**

= 6 x 12 (Since the payments are on monthly basis, hence multiplied by 12)

**= 72**

**So, the amount will be computed as follows:**

= $ 150 x [ (1 - 1 / (1 + 0.00458333333)^{72} ) /
0.00458333333 ]

= $ 150 x 61.2074258

**= $ 9,181.11 Approximately**
