    Solution:

    For Offer Number 1
    1. How much will the car cost after the discount?
    Cost of the car after discount=9800*(1-10%)=$8820

    2. How much will you need to borrow from your credit union?
    Loan amount =8820-3200=$5620

    3. What is the total amount of interest paid in 48 months?

    Monthly installment=$135.89 (refer part 4)
    Amount Paid in 48 months=$135.89*48=$6522.72
    Total interest paid=6522.72-5620=$902.72

    4. How much will the monthly payments be?
    We know PV of any ordinary annuity is given by

    Where i=interest rate per period=7.5%/12=0.6250%
    N=number of periods =48
    R=periodic payment

    5620=R*41.35837
    R=5620/41.35837=135.89

    Monthly payment will be $135.89
