Pretend you plan to buy a new car. You would like to use Excel to help you understand different loan scenarios for borrowing money to purchase your car.

1. Prepare a worksheet with labels and data to describe the car loan you will need. At a minimum, you need a separate cell for entering: purchase price of car, down payment amount, and interest rate.
2. Add a label and an appropriate formula to calculate the amount of your loan (e.g., your loan amount is car purchase price minus down payment amount).
3. Use the PMT function to calculate the payments for a 3-year-loan, a 4-year-loan, and a 5-year-loan. Add appropriate data labels for each.
4. Format the data with an appropriate number format (e.g., currency, percent, etc.). Be sure to adjust for an appropriate number of places after the decimal.
5. Add an appropriate title for your loan calculator in cell A1.
6. Rename the worksheet with an appropriate name for your loan calculator.
