(See attached)

gives An the amount owing at the end of the nth time period. Here n is given in months and r, expressed as a decimal, is the monthly rate of interest on the loan. P is the monthly repayment and A is the amount borrowed.

1) Calculate P for the above data
2) Calculate amount owing on the loan after 10 years
3) At end of 10 years the house buyer inherits \$80,000 which he pays off the loan. Assuming that he continues to make the same monthly repayments, calculate how many months before the loan is fully paid off.

#### Solution Preview

A=\$250,000, r=0.06/12=0.005, 25 years is 25*12=300 months.
At the end of the 25 years or 300 months, A(n)=0.
Thus we can find P.
