After this initial two-year period, the existing balance of the loan is amortized over;the remaining 28 years of the loan's term. If you make the minimum payment each month for;the first two years, what is your new mortgage balance after making these payments?;Question 12;If you make the minimum payment each month for the first two years of the loan, what will;your fixed monthly payment be for the remaining term?
