Bafna IME, WMU IME 310-1 3 of 5 Example of Economic Analysis BUY A CAR: Purchase price $35,000 Down payment of $5,000 Loan amount of (35,000 – 5,000) = $30,000 Annual Interest at 6% paid monthly over 3 years Monthly payment = $30,000 x 0.0304 = $912 per month. I can only afford monthly payments of $600. What can I do? Then loan amount = $600 x 32.871 = $19,723 Purchase price should be $19,723 + $5,000 = $24,723 NOTE: For now, don’t worry about where the blue numbers come from. You will learn these later. K. M.
