**Answer:**

1. For deal from Middlefield Motors, First installment is due today , so PV of rest 31 installments dsicounted @ 2.35% (since this is the quarterly intrest itself) for 31 period (8*4-1, since the first one is due today- gives = PV (2.35%,31, 4827.66) =105444.88, Add to it the current 1st installment due today to get the PV of the boat = 105444.88+ 4827.66= 110272.54

Now with this PV and 48 period installment (4*12 monthly installment) and 2608 per month we can find monthly rate easily, ie = RATE (48, 2608, -110272.54) = 0.53% (-110272.54Because that is how the formula adjusts it).

So monthly rate by fairfax is 0.53% =
**0.0053**
