Section 12.2

Installment Loans

Vocabulary
• Installment Loan – a loan that is amortized. This means that both the principal and interest are paid off by a sequence of equal periodic payments. (often used for car loans, etc.)
• APR = Annual Percentage Rate (actual rate received by the borrower.)
• Nominal Rate = rate that is stated (perhaps in a brochure or advertisement)
To find the total installment cost and the finance charge:

1. Find the total installment cost.

= down + payment x number of

payment amount payments

2. Find the finance charge (interest)

= Total installment cost – Cash price

3. Find the amount financed (Principal of loan)

= Cash price – down payment

Robert Chu purchased a new Toyota Prius costing \$24,200, including taxes and licensing, with \$4000 down and 48 payments of \$488.25 each. Find

(a) the total installment cost,

(b) the finance charge, and

(c) the amount financed.

Formula for approximate APR
• Approx APR =

24 x Finance Charge

Amt. Financed x (1 + # of payments)

This is ONLY an estimate for the APR!

Bob Drake purchases a two-year old Harley

Davidson motorcycle costing \$26,500. He

financed the purchase at his bank with a

\$5000 down payment and payments of

\$693.74 for 36 months. Estimate the APR to

the nearest tenth of a percent.

Find APR using the Table (p 506)

1. Multiply the finance charge by 100, and divide by the amount financed.

2. Find # of payments on left column of table Look to the right until you find the closest value to the # from step 1

3. Look at the top of that column to get the APR.

A refrigerator costing \$1450 was financed with \$100 down and 20 monthly payments of \$74.95 each.

Find (a) the finance charge, (b) amount financed, and (c) the APR.

An insurance agent borrowed \$22,500 for new hardware and software for her growing business. She agreed to a note with payments of \$858.10 per month for 30 months and put a CD up for collateral instead of making a down payment. Find the APR.
