Now they realize that they could have taken out a different loan that didn't charge 30%. Amazing.

It isn't stated the same way as interest rate on a loan.

It also should have been easy to multiply the monthly payment by the number of months. Borrowing $92,000, Paying $240,000.

They are also paying income taxes on the payments.

It is no wonder that they were in deep financial problems and were looking for a quick fix.
