Simple interest = Principal × Time × rate

Le's work out the interest Katherine earns from the two investments.

Money Market Account

Simple interest = 7770 × 5.8/100 × 6/12

= 7770 × 0.058 × 0.5 = $225.33

So, the amount she gets at maturity is:

$7770 + $225.33= $7995.33

CD account

Simple interest = 12500 × 0.0725 × 3 = $2718.75

The amount she receives at the end of period is:

$12500 + $2718.75 = $15218.75

The total amount she receives from both investments at maturity is:

$15218.75 + $7995.33 = $23214.08

This to the nearest dollar is:

= $23214

Kurt’s ending balance on April 30 was $331.36. Add or subtract the items in his check register, shown below, to find his balance on May 30. Date Type Description Amount 05/01 Check #478 Car payment $186.47 05/05 Debit Groceries $66.42 05/08 Deposit Paycheck $279.62 05/15 Deposit Tax return $95.02 05/29 Check #479 Insurance $160.00 Assuming this record is complete, Kurt’s ending balance is $293.11.

Let x is Kurt's ending Balance:

x = ($331.36 + $279.62 + $95.02) - ($186.47 + $66.42 + $160.00)

x = $706 - $412.89

x = $293.11. (answer)

t Object]User: Anna’s bank gives her a loan with a stated interest rate of 10.22%. How much greater will Anna’s effective interest rate be if the interest is compounded daily, rather than compounded monthly?

Question

1 Answer/Comment

To determine the difference in Anna's effective interest rate when compounded daily compared to compounded monthly, we need to consider the compounding period and calculate the effective interest rate using both scenarios.

Assuming the stated interest rate is an annual rate, we can convert it to a decimal by dividing it by 100:

10.22% = 0.1022

Compounded Monthly:

To calculate the effective interest rate compounded monthly, we divide the annual interest rate by 12 (number of months):

Monthly interest rate = 0.1022 / 12 = 0.0085167

Next, we calculate the effective interest rate using the monthly interest rate over one year:

Effective interest rate compounded monthly = (1 + 0.0085167)^12 - 1

Compounded Daily:

To calculate the effective interest rate compounded daily, we divide the annual interest rate by 365 (number of days in a year):

Daily interest rate = 0.1022 / 365 = 0.00028055

Next, we calculate the effective interest rate using the daily interest rate over one year:

Effective interest rate compounded daily = (1 + 0.00028055)^365 - 1

By comparing the two effective interest rates, we can determine the difference in Anna's effective interest rate when compounded daily instead of compounded monthly.

Assuming the stated interest rate is an annual rate, we can convert it to a decimal by dividing it by 100:

10.22% = 0.1022

Compounded Monthly:

To calculate the effective interest rate compounded monthly, we divide the annual interest rate by 12 (number of months):

Monthly interest rate = 0.1022 / 12 = 0.0085167

Next, we calculate the effective interest rate using the monthly interest rate over one year:

Effective interest rate compounded monthly = (1 + 0.0085167)^12 - 1

Compounded Daily:

To calculate the effective interest rate compounded daily, we divide the annual interest rate by 365 (number of days in a year):

Daily interest rate = 0.1022 / 365 = 0.00028055

Next, we calculate the effective interest rate using the daily interest rate over one year:

Effective interest rate compounded daily = (1 + 0.00028055)^365 - 1

By comparing the two effective interest rates, we can determine the difference in Anna's effective interest rate when compounded daily instead of compounded monthly.
