For 30 years at 5% = \$354,625.2

For 20 years at 4.5% = \$278,618.4

Step-by-step explanation:

The total payback for each payment is given by the monthly payment multiplied by the total number of months for the payment period (years).

1) For 30 years at 5%

Total number of months in 30 years = 30 x 12 = 360 months

Payback = \$985.07 x 360 = \$354,625.2

2) For 20 years at 4.5%

Total number of months in 20 years = 20 x 12 = 240 months

Payback = \$1160.91 x 240 = \$278,618.4

Total payback for Loan type 1 = \$354,625.20

Total payback for Loan type 2 = \$278,618.40

Explanation

Total payback of a loan consists of the summation of the amount of mortgage to be paid and total interest to be paid after the given number of years.

Total payback of a loan can also be calculated by multiplying your monthly payment of the loan by the total number of months given for payment.

a. For Loan type 1

In the question we have been given or monthly payment = \$985.07

The formula for Total payback for Loan type 1 = Monthly payment × number of months

Numbers of years for payment of loan = 30 years

1 years = 12 months

Hence,

Number of months = 30 years × 12 months

Number of months = 360 months

Total payback of loan = \$985.07 × 360 months

= \$354,625.20

b. For Loan type 2

In the question we have been given or monthly payment = \$1160.91

The formula for Total payback for Loan type 1 = Monthly payment × number of months

Numbers of years for payment of loan = 30 years

1 years = 12 months

Hence,

Number of months = 20 years × 12 months

Number of months = 240 months

Total payback of loan = \$1160.91 × 240 months

= \$278,618.4
