Question

#3.

All the family members of Bob pool their money to buy an Old House. They take out a 14 year mortgage for 80000 dollars at a rate of interest of 5.4 percent convertible monthly, agreeing to make equal monthly payments with the first due one month later. Immediately after making the 20th payment, they decide to hire Bob Villa to remodel their house. To do this, they will need to refinance their loan and also borrow an additional 100,000 dollars. They make a deal with the lender where they will pay off the balance owed (on the original loan plus the additional 100,000 dollars) with 24 more years of equal monthly payments. The lender agrees, provided that its yield rate on the ENTIRE LOAN is 7.2 percent convertible monthly.

Under these new terms, what is their new monthly payment?
