To determine

To calculate: The amount financed, the finance charge and the monthly payment for the installment where purchase price is $17,450, down payment is$2,000, add-on interest is 14% and number of payments are 48.

Explanation

Given Information:

The amount of purchase price is $17,450, down payment is$2,000, add-on interest is 14% and number of payments are 48.

Formula used:

Follow the steps to compute the regular monthly payment of an installment loan using add-on interest.

Step 1: The amount financed is computed by subtracting the down payment from purchase price.

Amount financed=Purchase priceDown payment

Step 2: Finance charge is computed by multiplying principle with rate and time with the amount financed as the principal.

I=P×R×T

Where, I is the finance charge, P is the amount financed, R is the rate of interest and T is the time.

Step 3: The total amount of installments payment is computed by adding amount financed and finance charge.

Total amount of installment payments=Amount financed+Finance charge

Step 4: The regular monthly payments is computed by dividing the total number of payments by total number of months of the loan.

Regular monthly payments=Total number of installment paymentsNumber of months of the loan

Calculation:

Consider that purchase price is $17,450, down payment is$2,000, add-on interest is 14% and number of payments is 48.

Compute amount financed by substituting purchase price equals to $17,450 and down payment equals to$2,000,

Amount financed=Purchase priceDown payment=$17,450$2,000=$15,450 Hence, amount financed is$15,450
