Remember that there has to be a negative number in your calculations for the formulas to work. If you get an error message on your calculator go back and make dollar variable negative.

Bob should take the one time payment of \$15,000 as it is greater than the PV of annual payments.

1. You want to buy a new car that costs \$25,000. How much would your monthly payments be if you borrow the money for 5 years from a credit union at 4% annually (remember you make monthly payments so you have to get the term of the loan and the interest rate from annual periods to months)?

PV = 0

FV = 25,000
