Question

When interest rates are low, some automobile dealers offer loans at 0% APR, as indicated in a 2016 advertisement by a prominent car dealership, offering zero percent financing or cash back deals on some models.

Zero percent financing means the obvious thing—that no interest is being charged on the loan. So if we borrow $1,200 at 0% interest and pay it off over 12 months, our monthly payment will be $1,200/12 = $100.

Suppose you are buying a new truck at a price of $28,000. You plan to finance your purchase with a loan you will repay over two years. The dealer offers two options: either dealer financing with 0% interest, or a $2,800 rebate on the purchase price. If you take the rebate, you will have to go to the local bank for a loan (of $25,200) at an APR of 6.5%.

What would your monthly payment be if you took the rebate? (Round your answer to the nearest cent.)

Answer #1

**Answer:**

If we go for dealer financing we have to give = $ 28000

So, each month we have to give = 28000/(2 * 12) = $ 1166.67

Total we have paid = 1166.67 * 24 = $ 28000

Now, if we go for rebate option

If the amount of repayment is calculated based on a simple interest method, the formula used will be -

I = P * R * T

Where:-

I = Interest

P = Principal amount of loan ($25,200)

R = Rate of interest (6.5% APR)

T = Time period of loan (2 years)

Therefore, by substituting values the answer will be -

I = 25,200 * 6.5% * 2 = $3276

Now, the amount that is to be repaid to the bank will be $25,200 + $3276 = $28,476.

Since the period of repayment is 2 years i.e., 24 months, the amount of loan will be divided into 24 equal instalments.

$28,476/24 = $1186.5.625

You are in the process of purchasing a new car that will cost
you $25,000. The dealership is offering you either a $1,000 rebate
(applied toward the purchase price, so that the purchase price
becomes $24,000) if you pay today or 3.9% APR financing for 4
months and no rebate (with payments made at the end of the
month).

This problem illustrates a deceptive way of quoting interest
rates called add-on interest. Imagine that you see an
advertisement for Crazy Judy’s Stereo City that reads something
like this: “$1,000 Instant Credit! 16.9% Simple Interest! Three
Years to Pay! Low, Low Monthly Payments!” You’re not exactly sure
what all this means and somebody has spilled ink over the APR on
the loan contract, so you ask the manager for clarification.

You make two separate deposits in a bank. The first amount of
$1,200 deposited today earns a 6% interest per year for 10 years,
and the second amount of $800 to be deposited two years from now
would earn a 5% interest per year for the next 8 years. What would
be your total future value at the end of year 10?
