Let x be the cash price of the computer.

"Cash Down" means you pay off some of the pricebeforecompounded interest. Hence the amount of money that is required to pay off the computer becomes x-450

In the first year, if you don't make any more payments at the end of year 0, the debt of (x-450) is interest charged by 18%. In other words, the debt is increased by 18%. Hence the debt becomes 1.18(x-450)

At the end of the first year, we make a payment of $680. Hence our debt is now

what we owe now - what we have paid off

1.18(x-450) - 680 [This is the debt after year 1]

In year 2, the interest is charged again at 18%. Hence our debt now becomes

1.18 [1.18(x-450) - 680]

With a payment of $590 our debt decreases

1.18 [1.18(x-450) - 680] - 590.

If we have fully paid it off, then our debt is equal to 0. Hence

1.18 [1.18(x-450)-680]-590 = 0.

Solve for x.
