1.
\$216.49 at 12.5% for 3 years.
\$81.61
\$81.81
\$81.11
\$81.18
Working the problem:
\$216.49 at 12.5% for 3 years.
I = PRT
216.49 x 0.125 x 3
216.49 x 0.125 = 27.06
27.06 x 3 = 81.18
I = \$81.18
Answer (d) is the correct answer
2.
\$10.00 at 26% for 2 years.
\$5.20
\$15.20
\$52.00
\$2.50
Working the problem:
\$10.00 at 26% for 2 years.
I = PRT
10 x 0.26 x 2
10 x 0.26 = 2.60
2.60 x 2 = 5.20
I = \$5.20
Answer (a) is the correct answer
3.

Working the problem:
\$39,333.33 at 6.23% for 17 years.
I = PRT
39,333.33 x 0.0623 x 17
39,333.33 x 0.0623 = 2,450.47
2,450.47 x 17 = 41,657.99
I = \$41,657.99
Answer (b) is the correct answer
4.
\$900.00 at 3.85% for 10 years.
\$365.40
\$356.40

Working the problem:
\$900.00 at 3.85% for 10 years.
I = PRT
900 x 0.0385 x 10
900 x 0.0385 = 34.65
34.65 x 10 = 346.50
I = \$346.50
