25. Daniel borrowed a loan of $150 000 from a bank. Interest was calculated at the end of every year

at an interest rate of 12% per annum. He planned to repay $x at the end of every year. It was

assumed that the interest was calculated before Daniel made the repayment.

Find, in terms of x, the amount he still owed the bank after the first repayment.

(Express the answer as an expanded and simplified algebraic expression.)

It is given that the amount Daniel still owed the bank after the second repayment is

(i) Find x.

(ii) Daniel claimed that he should increase the repayment by $8 000 in order to fully

repay his loan in two years. Do you agree? Explain your answer.
