I will answer this one and you answer the rest of them because they are all similar:

7. A bank offers the following loans:

Bank A

$235,000

20-year fixed

4.375%

1.75 discount points

M = $1,470.92

Bank B

$235,000

20-year fixed

4.7%

0 discount points

M = $1,512.22

What is the break-even point for the loans? (4 points)

A. about 5 years

B. about 8 years

C. about 6 years

ANSWER:

1.75 discount points is the percentage of fees you pay the lending Bank A to get a reduced interest rate and thereby a smaller monthly payment.

1.75 / 100 =0.0175

0.0175 x $235,000 =$4,112.50 - this is the fee you have to pay to Bank A.

$1,512.22 - $1,470.92 =$41.30 - this is the monthly savings between Bank A and Bank B.

$4,112.50 / $41.30 =99.57 months to get to break-even point.

99.57 / 12 months =~ 8 years to get to the break-even point or B on your list.
