years. The interest rate was fixed for a 5 year term, and lump sum payments were

i) Calculate the monthly payment for the first 5 years. ROUND UP TO THE NEXT
ii) Construct an amortization schedule for the first 60 months. (A schedule
showing only the first 3 months, and months 57 to 60 inclusive, with 60 month

iii) Calculate the principal outstanding at the end of the first 5 years.

i) Calculate the size of the principal balance being refinanced.
ii) Calculate the size of the new monthly payment.

loan. You will draw a large scale, fully labelled graph that visually explains to
Wayne how the loan has been amortized over the past ten (10) years. You are
only expected to plot the annual balances owing.
