a) price of car is present value of loan + down payment monthly int rate = 5.5%/12 = .004583 v = 1/(1+i) = .9954375 \[PV = 230(v+v^{2}+...v^{36}) =230\frac{v(1-v^{36})}{1-v} =7,616.93\] cash price of car = 9,616.93 to find interest she will have to pay add up all payments and subtract PV 230*36 = 8,280 8820 - 7616.93 = 663.07

Apply the formula for Loan Pmt, => PVA = $7,616.93 a) Cash price for the car: $7,616.93 + 2.000 = $9,616.93 @dumbcow It's pretty much seems like just copy cat from your work :")
