Middlefield Motors would let her make quarterly payments of 1,160.51 dollars for 11 years at a quarterly interest rate of 2.32 percent. Her first payment to Middlefield Motors would be due immediately. If Fairfax Boats would let her make equal monthly payments of 623.37 for 5 years and if her first payment to Fairfax Boats would be in 1 month, then what is the monthly interest rate that Mary Jo would be charged by Fairfax Boats? Answer as a rate in decimal format so that 12.34% would be entered as .1234 and 0.98% would be entered as .0098.
