Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1using the value of B12, we can determine the Payments required for 24 months (2 years): \[[B]_{24}=B_{12}k^{24}P\frac{1k^{24}}{1k}\]since we want the balance to be zero lets plug that in and solve for P \[0=B_{12}k^{24}P\frac{1k^{24}}{1k}\] \[B_{12}k^{24}=P\frac{1k^{24}}{1k}\] \[B_{12}k^{24}\frac{1k}{1k^{24}}=P\] if we dont want to go thru the trouble of computing things twice, sub in for B12 = B0k^12 \[B_ok^{12}~k^{24}\frac{1k}{1k^{24}}=P\] \[B_ok^{36}~\frac{1k}{1k^{24}}=P~:~k=1+r/12\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats just the process; its the end formula i use to determine P http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2910k%5E%2836%29%281k%29%2F%281k%5E24%29%2C+k%3D1%2B.2298%2F12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I use the same setup\[B_n=B_ok^nP\frac{1k^n}{1k}~:~k=1+r/12\] since the defered period doesnt have a set payment; we can just set our own payment schedule ... they give it as P=112 \[B_6=2276~k^6112\frac{1k^6}{1k}~:~k=1+.2349/12\] that comes to 1851 for me, so id say B is the safest bet http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2276k%5E6112%281k%5E6%29%2F%281k%29%2Ck%3D1%2B.2349%2F12
