[2 points] Suppose that 7 years ago you bought a home for \$450,000, paying 25% as a down payment, and financing the rest at 3.6% interest for 30 years. How much money did you pay as your down payment? \$450,000 x .25 = \$112,500 2. [2 points] How much money was your existing mortgage (loan) for? \$450,000 - \$112,500 = \$337,500 3.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
