Question

Banks sometimes quote interest rates in the form of “add-on interest.” In this case, if a 1-year loan is quoted with an interest rate of 8.5% and you borrow $1,000, then you pay back $1,164. But you make these payments in monthly installments of $97 each.

**a.** What is the true APR on this loan?
**(Do not round intermediate calculations. Enter your answer
as a percent rounded to 2 decimal places.**)

**b.** What is the effective annual rate on the
loan? **(Do not round intermediate calculations. Enter your
answer as a percent rounded to 2 decimal places.)**

Answer #1

a. Amount borrowed = 1000, Monthly payments = $97, Period of loan = 1 year = 12 months

We know that APR = 12 x monthly rate

To find the APR of this loan we will first need to find monthly rate of this loan,

We can find the monthly rate using rate function in excel

Formula to be used in excel: =rate(nper,-pmt,pv)

Using rate function in excel, we get monthly rate = 2.4173%

APR = monthly rate x 12 = 2.4173% x 12 = 29.0076 = 29.01% (rounded to two decimal places)

b.

Effective annual rate for loan = (1 + monthly rate)^{no of
months in a year} - 1 = (1 + 2.4173%)^{12} - 1 =
(1.024173)^{12} - 1 = 1.331925 - 1 = 0.331925 = 33.1925% =
33.19% (rounded to two decimal places)

This problem illustrates a deceptive way of quoting interest
rates called add-on interest. Imagine that you see an
advertisement for Crazy Judy’s Stereo City that reads something
like this: “$1,000 Instant Credit! 16.9% Simple Interest! Three
Years to Pay! Low, Low Monthly Payments!” You’re not exactly sure
what all this means and somebody has spilled ink over the APR on
the loan contract, so you ask the manager for clarification.
Judy explains that if you borrow $1,000 for three years...

A local finance company quotes an interest rate of 18.1 percent
on one-year loans. So, if you borrow $39,000, the interest for the
year will be $7,059. Because you must repay a total of $46,059 in
one year, the finance company requires you to pay $46,059/12, or
$3,838.25 per month over the next 12 months.
