Answer:Monthly payment= $440.71

Step-by-step explanation:Giving the following information:

Mothly interest rate (i)= 0.025/12= 0.00208

Number of periods (n)= 12*10= 120 months

Future Value (FV)= $60,000

To calculate the monthly payment, we need to use the following formula:Monthly payment= (FV*i) / [(1+i)^(n) – 1]Monthly payment= (60,000*0.00208) / [(1.00208^120) – 1]

Monthly payment= $440.71
