Answer #1

**Answer-**

**Buying price of car = FV = $ 25000
Present value = PV = $ 0
Payments every month at beginning = PMT = $ 90
Interest rate = I/Y = 6 % /annum = 6 % / 12 = 0.5 / month
Number of months = N = ?**

**Substituting the values in with the given buttons as
indicated in financial calculator we get**

**Keeping the calculator in BEGIN mode as $ 90 is paid at
the beginning of every month**

**Number of months = N = 174.02 ~ 175**

**a) Number of deposits for reaching $ 25000 goal =
175**

**b) Number of years = 175 / 12 = 14.583
