  • Call a loan officer? Try I really can't help, I am horrible in math. I have a friend that is a banker that helps me with things like this.

  • 7.8% * $2,800.00 = $218.40 per year in interest

    $218.40 per year * 2 years = $436.80 total interest charged.

    $436.80 + initial loan of $2,800.00 = $3236.80

    (I think!)
