    For the answer to the question above,

    This is a present value of an ordinary annuity question.

    It is present value because you have a present value - the future value will be 0.

    I assume the interest rate is 13% per annum.


    i=0.13/12=0.01083 repeater

    1+i=1.01083 repeater


    You have to find R

    formula is

    A = R x (1 - (1+i) ^-n) / i

    Just substitute the given to this formula and you'll get the answer.
