Working out

We asked you to work out what your monthly instalments would be over 20 months if you bought a car for £9,000 and paid a £3,200 deposit.

The first step in this question is to subtract the deposit of £3,200 from the price to see how much is left to pay. 9,000 – 3,200 = 5,800

You can then divide 5,800 by 20 to work out the monthly payment. 5800 ÷ 20 = 290
