On June 30, Year 3, PPI purchased a machine for $100,000. The down payment was $15,000, and the balance will be paid in 48 equal monthly payments, including interest at 18% compounded monthly. What is the amount of the monthly payment if the first payment is due one month from the date of the purchase?

    monthly blame = 18/12 =1.50%

    Number of months = 48

    Amount attributable = 100000-15000 =85000

    Monthly cancelment = Amount attributable /PVA 1.5%,48

                             = 85000/34.04255

                            = $ 2496.88
