Alysha has decided to use her $50,000 in savings to make a down payment on a house. She will live in the house for the next two years while still at university and then sell it when she graduates. The bank has offered her a mortgage rate of 5.1 percent compounded semi-annually on a two-year term, with an amortization period of 25 years. The house she is interested in purchasing costs $280,000.
a. If two friends rent rooms from Alysha and pay her $475 each for rent at the end of each month, how much additional money does she need to meet her monthly mortgage payment?
