Hi! So here's the problem: The total loan is $6,897.00 and the interest is 12.375%. The loan lasts 143 months. If 25$ are payed every month for the first 24 months, how much would it cost per monthly payment for the rest of the loan (the remaining 119 months).

The interest for 1st month will be .12375/12*6897 = ~71.13
So the loan balance will be increasing during 1st 24 months.
You may want to check your problem statement.
However, it is still a valid problem as is.
