A car dealer offers you two deals on a car that costs $16,000. Please calculate the monthly payment, given these two payment options the car dealer is offering. Payment Option 1: You can finance the car for 60 months with no interest if you make a $3,000 down payment. Payment Option 2: You can finance the car for 72 months (6 years) with 1% simple annual interest and no down payment. (Hint: To calculate simple annual interest, use the formula Interest = Principal * Rate * Time (in years). Add the amount of interest to the price of the car.) Which monthly payment amount is lower?

    I miss algebra -_- Anyways, just solve for the monthly payment options. Payment Option 1) You can finance the car for 60 months with no interest if you make a $3,000 down payment. SO: 16,000 - 3,000 = 13,000 13,000 /60 = 216.666 Monthly payment: $216.67 Payment Option 2) You can finance the car for 72 months (6 years) with 1% simple annual interest and no down payment. SO: 16,000 divided into 6 years = 2666.67 Multiply by 1% interest... 0.1 * 2666.67 = 26.67 2666.67 + 26.67 = 2693.34 per year. Divide that by 12 months. 2693.34 /12 = 224.45 Monthly Payment: $224.45

Payment Option 1: You can finance the car for 60 months with no interest if you make a $3,000 down payment. Total Price of the Car = Car price + down payment to the financer Total Price of the Car = $ 16,000 + 3,000 ======================================… Total Price of the Car = $ 19,000 ◄ higher in price Ans ======================================… Payment Option 2: You can finance the car for 72 months (6 years) with 1% simple annual interest and no down payment. (Hint: To calculate simple annual interest, use the formula Interest = Principal * Rate * Time (in years). Add the amount of interest to the price of the car.) Interest payment = Principal * Rate * Time Interest payment = 16,000 * 0.01 * 6 Interest payment = 960 Total Price of the Car = Price of the Car + Interest Payment Total Price of the Car = $ 16,000 + $ 960 ======================================… Total Price of the Car = $ 16,960 ◄ The choice Plan Ans ======================================… Which monthly payment amount is lower?
