The first option costs slightly less.

In Canadian mortgages, the compounding and payment periods are not the same. Interest is
compounded semi-annually while payments are made monthly. To use the TVM application
in the HP 10bII+, you need to calculate a Canadian mortgage factor (which is an adjusted
interest rate) to store in I/YR.
For additional information on interest rate conversions, see Interest Rate Conversions in Ch. 6.
Example
What is the monthly payment required to fully amortize a 30-year, 130,000 Canadian
mortgage if the annual interest rate is 12%?
