Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: none of the expressions shown is correct The appropriate expression is ... 90,000(1+0.006)^72+708.61[(1-(1+0.006)^72)/0.006] . . . best matches CStep-by-step explanation:The formula used to calculate the remaining balance is ... A = P(1 +r)^n +p((1 -(1 +r)^n)/r) . . . . . note the parentheses on the fraction numeratorIn this formula, r is the monthly interest rate: 7.2%/12 = 0.006, and n is the number of monthly payments: 6×12 = 72. Putting these values into the formula along with the loan amount (P=90,000) and the payment amount (p=708.61) gives ... A = 90,000(1.006)^72 +708.61((1 -(1.006)^72)/0.006) A = 74,871.52
