2.Paula is considering the purchase of a new car. She has
narrowed her search to two cars that are equally appealing to her.
Car *A* costs $25,000, and Car *B* costs $25,200. The
manufacturer of Car *A* is offering 0% financing for 48
months with zero down, while the manufacturer of Car *B* is
offering a rebate of $2000 at the time of purchase plus financing
at the rate of 3%/year compounded monthly over 48 months with zero
down. If Paula has decided to buy the car with the lower net cost
to her, which car should she purchase? (Round numerical values to
the nearest cent.)

3.

Suppose that Ramos contributes $4000/year into a traditional IRA earning interest at the rate of 3%/year compounded annually, every year after age 37 until his retirement at age 67. At the same time, his wife Vanessa deposits $2800/year (the amount after paying taxes at the rate of 30%) into a Roth IRA earning interest at the same rate as that of Ramos. Suppose that Ramos withdraws his investment upon retirement at age 67 and that his investment is then taxed at 30%. (Round your answers to the nearest cent.)
