Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: a. $266.03 a. About 43 monthsStep-by-step explanation:1. The calculation for the minimum payment is ... 0.035 × $7600.97 = $266.03__2. The answer choices assume that Jorge makes a payment of $266.03 each month. After the first month, the minimum payment due is less than that amount. If Jorge only pays the minimum payment each month the balance will decrease by about 1.5% each month, and it will take about 31 years before the minimum payment is below $1.The TVM Solver says it will be about 43 months for the card to be paid off if Jorge pays $266.03 each month.
