I would guess the interest rate is % and is compounded semi-annually.

where did you get 6.384% ?
I misread your amount of interest... To compute the amount of interest due, use: where: P = principal r = annual interest rate n = number of compounding periods per year t = number of years
3500 * .0675 * 9/12 = 177.1875 So that's simple interest. No need for anything else.
