    Solution:

    Total cost of van = market cost of van + 6% sales tax on market cost + document verification fees

    6% sales tax on market cost = market cost x 0.06 = 26857 x 0.06 = 1611.42 Total cost of van = 26857 + 1611.42 + 250 = 28,718.42

    20% of total cost of van = 5843.684

    Remaining amount = Total cost of van - initial financing = 22,974.74 dollars Hence 22,974.74 dollars is the total amount that Williams family is financing.
