Step 1

With the given information, we need to find the monthly payments and total interest for each of the loans. We can solve the problem using the following steps:

Step 2

Part 1: Installment loan A
Present value of the loan (Principal amount) is \$13000
Interest rate is 5.9%
Monthly interest rate is 5.9% divided by 12 which is equal to 0.004916667
Time period is 3 years
Number of periods for monthly payments is 3 multiplied by 12 which is equal to 36
Future value of the loan will be zero as it will be repaid completely.
We can determine the monthly payments using excel.
