Textbook Problem

Erica Larsen purchased a living room set for $4,500 from Century Designs. She made a $500 down payment and financed the balance with an installment loan for 24 months. If her payments are $190 per month, what APR is she paying on the loan?

To determine

To calculate: The annual percentage rate if Erica Larsen purchased a living room for $4,500, paid down payment is $500, payment per month $190 and time period for loan is 24 months.

Explanation

Given Information:

Erica Larsen purchased a living room for $4,500, paid down payment is $500, payment per month $190 and time period for loan is 24 months.

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 of purchase price is $4,500, paid down payment is $500 and payment per month $190 and time period for loan is 24 months.

Compute amount financed by substituting purchase price to $4,500 and down payment to $500,

Amount financed=Purchase priceDown payment=4,500500=$4,000

Hence, the amount financed is $4,000.

Compute the total payments by substituting payment per month $190 and time period for loan is 24 months
