Hello,

I answer each section of the problem; but I do not understand which is the best alternative out of interest earn or rate of return.

a.) Calculate the interests earn on the savings account for six months.

I = Principal*Rate*Time

I = ($4800) (0.055) (0.5)

I=132

b.) Calculate the rate of return if the money is lent to Judy.

Rate of return =Amount of return

Amount invested

=$5,100

$4,800

= 1.0625

= 1.0625

= .0625

=6.25

Which alternative would you recommend?
