10% off deal Monthly payment: A=\frac{18000(1+\frac{0.09}{12})^{48}(\frac{0.09}{12})}{(1+\frac{0.09}{12})^{48}-1}=447.93 Total payment: 447.93\times48=21500.64 No discount Monthly payment: A=\frac{20000(1+\frac{0.03}{12})^{48}(\frac{0.03}{12})}{(1+\frac{0.03}{12})^{48}-1}=442.69 Total payment: 442.69\times48=21249.12 No discount is better deal
