Answer:

125,200

Step-by-step explanation:

Given :

Loan amount (P) = 500,000

Annual effective interest (r) = 8% = 8/100 = 0.08

n = 5 (5th payment) = final payment

Using the relation :

Payment amount per period :

A = (P(1 + r)^n * r) ÷ (1 + r)^n – 1

A = (500000(1 + 0.08)^5 * 0.08) / (1 + 0.08)^5 – 1

A = 40000(1.08)^5 / 1.08^5 – 1

A = 40000(1.4693280768) / 1.4693280768 – 1

A = 58773.123072 / 0.4693280768

A = 125228.22

A = 125,200 ( nearest hundred)
