Salary is $40,000, has $20,000 in student loans after dropping out, and has to pay $230 a month for car payments. Her net annual income is $28,000, so she can afford about 25% of her net income which is $700. Jenny's net monthly income is $2,333.33.


As for paying off her student loans, she must do so in a 10 year span with the current interest rate of 6.8%.

After doing so using the present value formula the resulting monthly payment would be $230.16.

By subtracting the monthly costs of the student loans, car payments, and about $100 for other living costs will be what Jenny has left for the home.
