Question

Bucky Bavasi just bought a new TV that cost $1,500. He plans to finance the purchase with his new credit card which has an 18% nominal interest rate. The minimum payment on the card is $24.16 per month. If he makes the minimum payment and makes no other charges, how many months will it take before he pays off the card?

Answer #1

Information provided:

Present value (PV)= $1,500

Monthly payment= $24.16

Monthly market rate= yield to maturity (I/Y)= 18%/12= 1.50% per month

The time taken to payoff the card is calculated by entering the below information in a financial calculator:

PV= -1500

PMT= 24.16

I/Y= 1.50

Press the CPT key and N to compute the time of the bond.

The value obtained is 179.86.

Therefore, it takes **179.86
months** to payoff the card.

In case of any query, kindly comment on the solution.
