Task 3A


Mr Tim Budge and his fiancé Jennifer Lopez are looking at a handsome house and land package, But to do this they have to discuss finance with there local financier. They need to borrow a large sum of money from the bank to pay for the house.

There weekly income is $1050.00 there weekly outgoing is $450.00 also whilst keeping in mind they cannot pay back more than 85% that they earn that month.

Using this table they will find a plan which best suits them.

Results and Data

Throughout the duration of completing my Excel spreadsheet I found the following information.

Table 1

Financial Details

Weekly Income


Weekly Outgoing


Bank Balance


Monthly Income


Monthly Outgoing


Max Repayment


This is the Couples Financial details. The financier has to take this information into example when finding a repayment plan best for the couple.

Table 2

Interest Rate

Present Value











I got this information by using the PV (present Value) with the ABS (absolute) to help retrieve the right answer. The PV formula is PV (rate, nper, pmt) the rate is interest rate nper is the number of repayments and pmt is a payment made monthly.


1.$286568.3693 / =ABS(PV(9%/12,12*20,2578.33))

2.$225150.7822 / =ABS(PV(9%/12,12*20,2025.83))
