If we can afford to save $100 per month for a $50,000 car, in an account compounding monthly at 8%, then how long will it take to save up? Setup the formula for the problem but do not solve. If I told you that the answer was approximately 18.38 years would that make sense? Show work to explain why.
What will our monthly payment be if we take out a car loan at 8% compounded monthly for $50,000 for 18.38 years? What is the interest paid over the life of the loan? How much more do we pay in total when compared to
