# Calculate the amount financed, the finance charge, and the monthly payments. For the following add-on interest loans.Purchase(Cash) Down Amount Add-on Number of Finance MonthlyPrice Payment Financed Interest Payments Charge Payment$12,300 5% ______ 9% 36 _______ _______ To determine To calculate: The amount financed, the finance charge and the monthly payment for the installment where purchase price is$12,300, down payment is 5%, add-on interest is 9% and number of payments is 36.

Explanation

Given Information:

The amount of purchase price is $12,300, down payment is 5%, add-on interest is 9% and number of payments is 36. 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 complement method as the percentage financed is 100% minus the down payment percent. Amount financed=Purchase price(100%Down payment percent) 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$12,300, down payment is 5%, add-on interest is 9% and number of payments are 36.

Compute amount financed by substituting purchase price equals to $12,300 and down payment equals to 5%, Amount financed=Purchase price(100%Down payment percent)=$12,300(100%5%)=$12,300×95%=$11,685

Hence, amount financed is \$11,685
