Using "ordinary method", I assume, means using the simple interest formula.

$A=P+P\cdot R \cdot T$

$A=40000+40000\cdot .09 \cdot \frac{1}{3}$

$\boxed{A=\41,200}$ Value of the note at maturity

The maturity date is 120 days from May 25. If you include May 25,

7 days - May 25 to May 31
30 days - June
31 days - July
31 days - August
21 days - September
----------------------
120 days have been reached on September 21.

Words like "maturity value" and "ordinary method" blew me away.
