a. Assume the nominal interest rate is 4.0% per year, compounded daily (assume 30 days per month). Calculate the effective Annual interest rate for Molly Mae's student loans

b. Assume the effective interest rate is 0.75% per month. What is Molly Mae's monthly payment?

c. Assume Molly Mae's monthly payment is \$650. How much money in interest, will Molly Mae pay in total on her student loans?
