Hi Class,

Here is how I interpret the two fees being assessed by the online Line Bank and the Local Small Business

Company financing.

First, Local Small Business 3% origination fee, I’m assuming since it’s a fee it’s in addition to the $11,800.

Second, the $1000 online banking service, it states applied, so that adds an additional $1000 to the

principal and we’re she’s now financing $11,200 for this option.

—————————————————————————————–If monthly payment and price are the only factors then the Online Construction is the best option. It

offers the lowest monthly payment, the small amount of interest paid to the bank even with the $1000

financing fee. However if Ramona can’t afford the extra $32.50, then the Local Small Business Company

is her best option.

$10,200 Project Cost

+1,000.00 applied to balance

$11,200 Loan Amount – 11.9% APR 4 years

$294.39 monthly payment

𝑃𝑀𝑇 = [1−(.622721856376127 )] = $294.39

Zero % loans are really enticing, but if you can’t pay off the loan in the first year they normally hit you

with high interest rates to quickly recoup their $1200 back. Obviously the 16.99% even after ZERO % for

the first year has a higher monthly payment and cost you the most interest even if the term is the

shortest.

16.99% for 3 years

$427.77 monthly for 36 months

$3,399.83 in Interest

$15,399.83 Interest and Principal

Local Small Business Home Improvement Center

The Local Small Business Company has the lowest monthly payment and interest rate, however you’re

making 12 additional payments and in the end you’re also paying significantly more interest either of

the other two options.

$11,800

$11,446 Financed, 7.5% for7.5 5 years

$3913.31 in Interest

$15713.31 Interest and Principal

+$354.00 (3% origination fee) paid up front

$16,067.31 Total

Closing remarks, a lot of businesses and finance companies offer lower rates or “Zero” rates to hook you

in. They add fees and longer terms which will cost you more in the end. Additionally, many people only

look at the payment, its human nature. We want that car or other item and can afford $XX not really

worrying about what the real cost after you’ve factored in the interest you paid over the term of the

loan. Credit Cards and revolving credit are a whole other story….

Hello Class,

•

Large Home Improvement Store:

Monthly payment:

1 year with $100 monthly payment and 0% interest =

13200 – 1200 = 12000

12000 x (0.1699/12)/1-(1+0.1699/12) ^-12(3) =

$427.77

•

Local Small Business Home Improvement Company

Monthly payment:

11800 – 354 (3% of 11800) = 11446

11446 x (0.075/12)/1-(1+0.075/12) ^ -12(5) =

$229.35

•

Online Constriction Business

Monthly payment:

10200 – 1000 = 9200

9200 x (0.119/12)/1-(1+0.119/12) ^ -12(4)

$241.81

TOTAL AMOUNT PAID:

•

•

•

12*3 = 36*427.77= $15399.72 + 1200 = $16599.73

12*5 = 60*229.35 = $13761+ 354 = $14115

12*4 = 48*241.81 = $11606.88 + 1000 = $12606.88

Percentage of interest paid:

•

•

•

73 – 1200 = 15399.73-13200 = 2199.73/15399.73 X 100 = 14.3%

14115 – 354 = 13761-11800 = 1961/13761 x 100 =3%

88 – 1000 = 11606.88-10200 = 1406.88/11606.88 x100 = 12.12%

These percentages are telling you the amount of payments that were spent paying off

the interest.

I would suggest picking the online construction company. The monthly payment is not

the lowest, but she’ll pay less in total and the less percentage paying the interest.

What I did to start was to break down all three loans. First lets figure out the monthly payments using

the following formula.

PMT= P*(APR as decimal/payment frequency “n”)/(1-(1+APR/n)^(-n*y))

Option 1 Big Business offer:

$13,200.00 0% for 1 year if $100.00 monthly payments are made. The 16.99% for 3 years.

First, we need to subtract 12 payments of $100.00 from the total principal

13200.00-1200.00= $12,00.00 this is the total that will be affected by the 16.99% if Ramona

makes the $100.00 monthly payments.

Now to figure the remaining monthly payments using the above formula.

12000*(0.1699/12)/(1-(1+0.1699/12)^(-12*3))= $427.77 per month.

Next, lets figure up the total amount that will be paid for this loan using the formula:

(PMT amt)(# of PMT per year)(# of years)=

(4227.77)(12)(3)= $15,399.72 total paid with this option.

Nest, lets figure the precent paid toward principal, and amount paid toward interest using the following

formulas:

% toward principal= principal amt/total amtX100

% toward interest=. amt of interest/total amtX100

% toward principal= 12000.00/15399.72=

77.9%

% toward interest= 3399.72/12000.00=

28.3%

We need do now repeat all of these steps for the next two loan types.

Option 2 Small Local business:

$11,800.00 with a 3% origination fee, then 7.5% APR for 5 years.

First, we need to factor the 3% fee in order to calculate the total monthly payments, and the principal.

118000*1.03= $12,154.00 This will be the total amount financed.

Next, figure the total monthly payments.

PMT= 12154.00*(0.075/12)/(1-(1+0.075/12)^(-60))= $243.54 per month.

Next, lets figure the total amount that will be pain on the loan:

(243.54)(12)(5)= $14,612.40 total amount paid with this option.

Finally, figure up the precent paid towards the principal, and the precent paid toeards interest.

% toward principal= 12154.00/14612.40=

83.2%

% toward interest= 2458.40/14612.40=

16.82%

Option 3 Online Business:

$10,200.00 with $1,000.00 upfront before financing. Then 11.9% for 4 years.

First, we know that in order to have financing with the online business, you will need to pay $1,000.00

up front. This will reduce your total financed to $9,200.00.

Next, lets figure the total monthly payments.

PMT= 9200*(0.119/12)/(1-(1+0.119/12)^(-48))= $279.47 per month.

Next, figure the total principal to be paid:

(279.47)(12)(4)= $13,414.56 total amount paid with this option.

Finally, figure up the precent paid towards the principal, and the precent paid toeards interest.

% toward principal= 9200.00/13414.56

68.6%

% toward Interest: 9200.00/4214.56=

21.8%

Hello Group 3!

Time for another round of math. I started this week by breaking down all the numbers

we will need to complete the problem

First we need to figure out the monthly amounts for the multiple improvement options.

-Large Home Improvement Store:

Year 1 payment is ¼ of the $13,200 total.

$13,200/4 = $3,300. $3,300/12(monthly) = $275 for the 1st year

Year 2 – 4 payments are the total amount ($13,200) minus the $3,300 (see above) =

$9,900

This amount ($9,900), compounded for 36 months with the rate of 16.99% (.1699)

9900 x (.1699/12) / 1 – (1+.1699/12) -12(3)

=$352.91 is the amount for the 3 years remaining

This was a lot for the first round. I will continue after seeing if I am going down the right

path.

M4D1: Remodeling the Kitchen

In this discussion, you will solve a mathematics problem about financing a kitchen remodeling project. This group discussion will help

prepare you for activity Part 2, in which you will write and submit an individual complete solution to a related problem.

Answer the following questions.

Ramona Garcia will be remodeling her kitchen before she places her home on the market to sell. She researched what three local

companies would charge her for the remodeling and their best financing option for each company. Her research revealed the following

results.

Company

Total

Remodeling Financing Terms Ramona is Considering

Cost

Large

Home

Improvement

$13,200

Store

Financing through the bank servicing the national home improvement company: 1 year 0%

financing with a minimum monthly payment of $100; 16.99% APR for the remaining 3

years

Local

Small

Business

Home

$11,800

Improvement

Company

Financing through her local credit union: 3% origination fee to be paid first then 7.5% APR

for 5 years

Online

Construction

Business

Financing through an online banking service: $1,000 applied toward the project before

payback begins then 11.9% APR for 4 years.

$10,200

1. Calculate the monthly payments for each option given that interest is compounded monthly.

2.

3.

4.

5.

What is the total amount that must be paid for each option?

What percentage of the total amounts to be paid back to each financial institution is interest?

How would you explain to Ramona the differences between these percentages and their corresponding APR’s?

Based on the financial outcomes for each option, which company would you suggest that Ramona choose to remodel her

kitchen? Defend your suggestion.
