If interest paid on an investment is $25.21 for 50 days at an interest rate of 8.25%, what was the original amount invested if the exact interest method is used? (Round to the nearest cent).
I = P*r*t solving for P. Principal amount = I/r*t = 25.21/(.0825*50/365) = 25.21/0.011458= $ 2200.21

patmarone, I don't know how you come up with the answer $305.58 but it seems unrealistic for it to earn $ 25.21 in 50 days. PLease provide your solution.

The user did not indicate whether the interest rate was per annum or for the 50 days so I just computed 25.21/0.0825 to get my answer. I'm not complaining your flagging of my answer. I'll just ask the user for confirmation next time. Thanks!
