You have been saving for a new car and have $5,000. You are trying to decide what kind of car to buy and how much you
should spend. Since you are still a student, you can only afford to take out a small loan and monthly payments must be
under $250. Also, you are about to get engaged and will be buying a ring. As a result, you only want to contribute $2,500
cash to the car. Given the current interest rate and loan period, what is the most expensive car you can buy?
