Use the amortization formula to find the monthly payment A first:

A = P * i*(1+i)

^{n}/((1+i)^{n}-1)where i is the interest rate per month, n the number of months, and P the principal. In your case

P=92,000

n=60

i=0.0149 or i=0.0149/12, depending on whether your 1.49% is a monthly or annual interest rate.

If it is a monthly interest rate, these values give A=2,330. Therefore, the total payment over 60 months is

60*2,330=139,810.

If it is an annual interest rate, these values give A=1,592. Therefore, the total payment over 60 months is

60*1,592=95,520.

Now repeat this with i=0.0249 (or i=0.0249/12) and find the difference.

annualinterest rate, you would set i=0.0149/12 in the formula.Comment
