    That's going to be the number of payments * the monthly payment. Number of payments is number of years * 12 months / 1 year * 1 payment / month

    The monthly payment is \[c = \frac{Pr(1+r)^N}{(1+r)^N-1}\] where \(P\) is the principal borrowed, \(r\) is the monthly interest rate (expressed as a decima)l, which equals the annual interest rate (expressed as a decimal) divided by 12, and \(N\) is the number of payments.

    Which we don't need to compute because the problem gives it to us! :-) Figure out the number of monthly payments in 30 years, multiply by the monthly payment, and round to the nearest dollar.
