Mr. Horace, aged 25, has $25,000 cash to invest for his retirement. In addition, he plans to save and invest $8,000 per year (at the end of every year) for the next 40 years, at which time he will be 65 and retire. He plans to spend $55,000 per year (at the end of each year) after his retirement. He expects that he will live until age 90. The rate of interest is 6% per year.

You are the owner of a used car business near the York campus. Your company borrows money from a bank on a line of credit with a monthly interest rate of 0.50%. You know that some of your customers may not have the best credit rating, so you have decided that you need to charge all customers a higher interest rate  (than your own bank rate) when they finance  their purchases. Your average sales price per used car is $6,500 when it is financed for 36 months at an 18% APR with monthly compounding. 

a) What is the dollar amount of a customer's monthly payment on your "average" car sale? Assume payments are made at the end of the month.

b) What is the dollar amount of a customer's monthly payment if payments are made at the beginning of each month and the customer pays $1,000 cash up front?

c) Would your profit be higher or lower if a customer made a cash purchase, paying the entire $6,500 immediately, instead of the 36 payments calculated in part a)? Explain why the profit is different, and compute the dollar amount of the change in profits.
