Hi,
Thank you for using the site. I'll be happy to help you with this problem.
Is there a part "c"? It seems like there might be, but it was cut off.
Thanks,
Ryan

yes, thank you
(c) Suppose interest rates have dropped since dan took out his loan . One bank now offers a 30-year mortgage at 6.5%.
If dan pay this fee up front and refinance the balance of their loan, find his monthly payment.
Including the refinancing fee, what is the total amount of his payments? Discuss whether or not dan should refinance
with this option?
A different bank offers the same 6.5% rate but on a 15-year mortgage. Their fee for financing is \$4500. If Dan
pay this fee up front and refinance the balance of his loan, find their monthly payment. Including refinancing fee
what is the total amount of his payments? Discuss whether or not dan should refinance
with this option?

Hi,
Thank you for the additional information.
For the first option in part (c), is there a refinance fee given, like there is for the second option?
