Jack has been very unreliable making loan payments in the past. He has been late on many payments, and completely missed several others. He can expect to now have a
low credit score and difficulty getting another loan
Question Information: A credit score is a number that indicates your credit-worthiness. Scores are based, in part, on payment history. Lenders use credit scores to determine whether to grant a loan and at what interest rate. Jack's unreliable payment history will lower his credit score, making lenders less likely to offer him credit. If he is offered credit, his interest rate will likely be much higher than others who have reliably made their loan payments on time.

Joy has been saving her earnings to make a down payment on a new car. Which loan terms will result in highest total cost for the loan?
5.5 percent loan for 60 months
Question Information: In this scenario, Joy is considering various loan terms. Two factors to consider are the total cost of the loan and the monthly payment. While the monthly payment is likely to be less the longer the loan, a higher interest rate increases the total cost of the loan. Therefore, a 5.5% loan will have the largest total cost.
