Question:

Stan bought a monster truck for $2,000 down and payments of $450 a month for five years. What’s the total cost of the monster truck?

A $29,000
Explaination

Five years contain 60 months, so multiply $450 (monthly payment) × 60 = $27,000 (total payments). Then add $27,000 (total payments) + $2,000 (down payment) = $29,000 (total cost).
