Question

You bought a car and have to pay $500 monthly, for 36 months. How much did the car cost? The monthly interest rate is 1.7%. a. Assuming you first payment is at the end of this month b. Assuming your first payment is right away c. Assuming your first payment is in 12 months

Answer #1

Given about a car loan,

Monthly payment = $500

number of payments N = 36

monthly rate r = 1.7%

a). When first payment is at the end of the month, it is an ordinary annuity

Present value/cost in such case is

PV = PMT*(1 - (1+r)^-N)/r = 500*(1 - (1+0.017)^(-36))/0.017 = $13380.54

So, the car cost $13380.54

b). When first payment is right away, it is an annuity due

Present value/cost in such case is

PV = PMT*(1+r)*(1 - (1+r)^-N)/r = 500*1.017*(1 - (1+0.017)^(-36))/0.017 = $13608.01

So, the car cost $13608.01

c). When first payment is in 12 months, cost of car at the date of first payment is same as in case b

So, its cost now = cost at month 12/(1+r)^12 = 13608.01/1.017^12 = $11115.86

So, the car cost $11115.86

: For a typical 36-month lease on a car valued at $30,000, the
monthly charge is about $600. At the end of the 36 months, the car
is returned to the lease company. As an alternative, the same car
could be bought with no down payment and 36 equal monthly payments,
with a monthly interest rate of 1%. At the end of 36 months, the
car would be fully paid for. The car would then be worth about half
its...

You are responsible to pay back the following: $400 due today,
$500 due in five months, and $618 due in one year. You are given
the option: instead of making the above 3 payments, you can pay the
same amount as a single payment 9 months from now. Assuming a 12%
per annum (p.a) interest rate, how much will the single payment
be?

You have some extra cash this month and you are considering
putting it towards your car loan. Your interest rate is 7%, your
loan payments are $600 per month, and you have 36 months left on
your loan. If you pay an additional $1000 with your next regular
$600 payment (due in one month), how much will it reduce the amount
of time left to pay off your loan.

You have saved $5,000 for a down payment on a new car. The
largest monthly payment you can afford is $500. The loan will have
a 15% APR based on end-of-month payments. What is the most
expensive car you can afford if you finance it for 48 months? For
60 months? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your
answers to the nearest cent.
