What is the total amount paid?(d) Find the instantaneous rate of change of t with respect to x when x =$1398.43 and x = $1611.19.(e) Write a short paragraph describing the benefit of the higher monthly payment. (a) To determine To graph: The sketch of the model t=13.375lnx1250x,x>1250 where, x is the monthly payment in dollars and t is the term in years of a home mortgage of$200,000 at 7.5% interest.

Explanation

Given Information:

The model t=13.375lnx1250x,  x>1250 where x is the monthly payment in dollars and t is the term in years of a home mortgage of $200,000 at 7.5% interest. Graph: Consider the function t=13.375lnx1250x, x>1250. Steps to plot the graph of the function t=13.375lnx1250x using Ti 83 graphing utility: Step 1: Press “ON” button. Step2: Press “Y=” key on the graphing utility. Step3: Enter the function in the graphing utility as, “Y1=-13 (b) To determine To calculate: The term of a home mortgage at which the monthly payment is$1398.43 and also the total amount paid, if model is t=13.375lnx1250x,  x>1250 where x is the monthly payment in dollars and t is the term in years of a home mortgage of $200,000 at 7.5% interest. (c) To determine To calculate: The term of a home mortgage at which the monthly payment is$1611.19 and also the total amount paid, if model is t=13.375lnx1250x,  x>1250 where x is the monthly payment in dollars and t is the term in years of a home mortgage of $200,000 at 7.5% interest. (d) To determine To calculate: The instantaneous rate of change of t with respect to x, where x=$1398.43 and x=$1611.19, if the model is t=13.375lnx1250x, x>1250 where x is the monthly payment in dollars and t is the term in years of a home mortgage of$200,000 at 7.5% interest.

(e)

To determine

The benefit of the higher monthly payment in a paragraph, if the model is t=13.375lnx1250x,  x>1250 where x is the monthly payment in dollars and t is the term in years of a home mortgage of \$200,000 at 7.5% interest.
