To determine (a) To find: The monthly payment on the 30-year mortgage and on the 15-year mortgage. The mortgage with larger monthly payment. Explanation Given: A couple needs a mortgage of$300,000. Their mortgage broker presents them with two options: a 30-year mortgage at 612% interest or a 15-year mortgage at 534% interest.

Approach:

R=iAp1(1+i)ni=Imn=m×t

Here,

R is the amount of monthly payment,

Ap is the present value of annuity,

i is the interest per time period,

I is the interest rate,

m is the no. of period,

t is the time-period in years and

n is the total number of installments.

Calculation:

Consider the values, Ap=\$300,000, I1=612%, m=12 and t1=30.

i1=I1m=13/212×100=0.06512

n1=m×t1=30×12=360

Substitute 0.06512 for i1, 360 for n1 and 300, 000 for Ap in the formula given below:

R1=i1Ap1(1+i1)n1=0.06512×300,0001(1+0.06512)360=1625×(1+0.06512)360(1+0

To determine

(b)

To find:

The total amount to be paid over the life of each loan. The mortgage with the lower total payment over its lifetime
