**Answer:**

**Break even point = 5.90 years**

**Explanation:**

**given data **

loan amount = $250,000

time N = 30 year = 360 months

rate I/y = 6 % = 6% / 12

rate I/y = 5.5 % = 5.5% / 12

**solution**

we get here PMT for both Loan rate 5.5% and 6% is

for loan A

PMT( monthly rate, time period, loan amount )

PMT( 6/12 , 360 , -$250,000 )

**PMT = $1498.88 ...........1**

and for loan B

PMT( monthly rate, time period, loan amount )

PMT( 5.5/12 , 360 , -$250,000 )

**PMT = $1,419.47 ...........2**

so here saving is

Savings = Loan A – Loan B

Savings = $1498.88 - $1,419.47

Savings = $79.40

Point will be = $250000 × 2.25%

**points = $5625
**

so here Break even point will be

Break even point = points ÷ savings ...........3

Break even point = 5625 ÷ 79.40

**Break even point =70.84 month **

Break even point = 70.84 ÷ 12

**Break even point = 5.90 years**
