# Calculate the finance charge, the finance charge per $100, and the annual percentage rate for the following installment loans by using the APR table, Table 13-1. Amount Number of Monthly Finance Finance Charge Financed Payments Payment Charge per$100 APR 20. $17.930 48$540.47

To determine

To calculate: The finance charge, finance charge per $100 and annual percentage rate if financed amount is$17,930, number of payment is 48 and monthly payment is $540.47. Explanation Given Information: The financed amount is$17,930, number of payment is 48 and monthly payment is $540.47. Formula used: Follow the steps to compute the annual percentage rate using the APR table. Step 1: The formula for finance charge per$100 can be computed:

Finance charge per $100=Finance charge×100Amount financed Step 2: From table 13-1, note the number of payment column to the number of payments for the loan. Step 3: Note the right number of payment row to the table factor that is closely related to the finance charge per$100.

Total amount of installment payments=Amount financed+finance charge

Step 4: Look at the top of the column for the APR of the loan.

Calculation:

Consider that amount financed is $17,930, number of payment is 48 and monthly payment is$540.47.

Compute the total amount of installment payments by substituting monthly payment and number of payment.

Total amount of installment payments=Monthly payment×Number of monthly payment=$540.47×48=$25,942
