$145,000 x 20% =$29,000.00 - down payment required.

$145,000 - $29,000 =$116,000 - amount of mortgage to be borrowed.

PMT=PV. R.{[1 + R]^N/ [1 + R]^N - 1} - This is the formula you would use to calculate the monthly payment:

**$587.75 - The monthly payment on the mortgage. **

$587.75 x 360 months = $211,590.00 - Principal + interest that must be paid over a period of 30 years or 360 months.

$211,590.00 - $116,000 =**$95,590.00 - Total amount of interest on the mortgage.**
