1. ## Greg need help with Math

Hi! this is Gregory and I some help with my Math Assignment. Thanks
Here is what I have so far, please let me know if I am on the right track.

4. Anna Cavanaugh loaned her friend Jason $1,000 for 6 months at 6% simple interest. What is the future value of the loan and how much finance charge will Jason pay? R= I/PT =$1000 x .06 x 6/12
=$30$1000 + $30=$1030(FV of the Loan)

5. Acton can choose from two loan offers: $12,000 at 8% simple interest for 9 months; or a$12,000 9-month discounted loan at 7% discount. Based on the actual interest paid and the true rate on the discounted loan, which of the two loan offers will Acton choose? Explain your answer.
I=PRT
First offer = $12,000 x .08 x 9/12=$720
Second Offer= $12,000 x .07 x 9/12=$630

$12,000 -$630 = $11,370 630/11,370= 5.5% Now, how do I explain this answer? 2. Originally Posted by Kenny7 Hi! this is Gregory and I some help with my Math Assignment.

$1000 +$30= $1030(FV of the Loan) Yes, that looks good. 5. Acton can choose from two loan offers:$12,000 at 8% simple interest for 9 months; or a $12,000 9-month discounted loan at 7% discount.

630/11,370= 5.5%
But that was only for 9 months. For a full year, it would be 0.055*12/9= 7 and 1/3 percent.

Now, how do I explain this answer?
Which loan do you think Acton would choose? Why?
