    Answer:

    b. $268.14

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Original credit card monthly payment =

    p(\frac{i(1+i)^{n} }{(1+i)^{n}-1 } )

    where 

    Principal= $4350

    i= 19/12/100=0.01583

    n= 8

    Putting the values in formula we get:

    4350(\frac{0.01583(1+0.01583)^{8} }{(1+0.01583)^{8}-1 } )

    We get A1= $583.19

    Now, she paid $2000 making new principle = $2350

    i and n are same.

    2350(\frac{0.01583(1+0.01583)^{8} }{(1+0.01583)^{8}-1 } )

    We get A2=315.06

    Difference between A1 and A2=  583.19-315.06=268.13

    Therefore, June lowered her minimum monthly payment by $268.13 close to option B.

    Hence, option B is correct.
