Kimberly Jensen and Rebecca Parker of Mankato, Minnesota, are both single. The pair share an apartment on the limited resources provided through Kimberly's disability check from Social Security and Rebecca's part-time job at a grocery store. The two grew tired of their old furniture and went shopping. A local store offered credit at an APR of 16 percent, with a maximum term of four years. The furniture they wish to purchase costs \$2800, with no down payment required. Using Table 7-1 or the Garman/Forgue companion website, make the following calculations:

Effective Rate 17.23% Nper
Present Value
Future Value 4.00
\$2,800.00
