Suppose you have a balance owed on a car loan of \$10,000. The interest rate is 8% per year
compounded monthly and your monthly payment is \$300.
A.
At end of the first month when you make a payment, how much of the \$300 is interest owed for
the month and how much of it is applied to the balance?
B.
What is the new principal balance after making the payment?
C.
What will be the balance after making the payment at the end of the next month?
D.
Suppose you make payments until your balance is down to \$1000. At the end of the month you
make another \$300 payment. How much of that payment goes toward interest and how much
goes toward the balance?
Suppose you have a balance owed on a home loan of \$150,000. The interest rate is 6% per year

the month and how much of it is applied to the balance?
B.
What is the balance after making the first payment?
C.
What will be the balance after making the payment at the end of the next month?

You need to be able to solve problems about simple interest and compound interest by using the formula and
showing the calculations. For problems that involve systematic saving and amortized loan repayment you may
use the Finance menu on the calculator but you must show what you entered. For all problems you must write
