2 Justin ordered a bed room set for which he paid a down payment of 14% of the selling price.

(a) Calculate the selling price of the bed room set if the balance of the payment is \$5 160. 

(b) Justin paid the balance in monthly installments of \$266.60 over 2 years. 
How much extra did he pay through the installment scheme instead of cash?

(c) Justin could have taken a bank loan to pay for the entire cost of the bed room set. 
The bank charges 6.5 % simple interest per annum over a period of two years.
Would you recommend that he take up the bank loan or the installment scheme?
State your reason clearly.
