A person purchased a $134,359 home 10 years ago by paying 20% down and signing a 30-year mortgage at 11.7% compound monthly. Interest rates have dropped and the owner wants to refinance the unpaid balance by signing a new 30-year mortgage at 6.6% compounded monthly. How much interest will refinancing save?
