Textbook Problem

Tim Houston purchased a wall unit for $2,400. He made a $700 down payment and financed the balance with an installment loan for 48 months. If Tim’s payments are $42.50 per month, use the APR formula to calculate what annual percentage rate he is paying on the loan.

To determine

**To calculate:** The annual percentage rate if Tim Houston purchased a wall unit for

Explanation

**Given Information:**

Tim Houston purchased a wall unit for

**Formula used:**

When the table to compute APR is not given, the annual percentage rate (APR) is computed by the formula:

Where, *I* is finance charge on the loan, *P* is principal or amount financed and *n* is number of months of the loan.

**Calculation:**

Consider that purchase price is

Compute amount financed by substituting purchase price to

Hence, the amount financed is

Compute the total payments by substituting payment per month to

Hence, the total payment is
