A local finance company quotes a 14 percent interest rate on one-year loans. So, if you borrow $20,000, the interest for the year will be $2,800. Because you must repay a total of $22,800 in one year, the finance company requires you to pay $22,800/12, or $1,900.00, per month over the next 12 months.

   

a. What rate would legally have to be quoted?


  

b.

What is the effective annual rate?

Marisol is looking at a one-year loan of $15,000. The interest rate is quoted as 10 percent plus 4 points. A point on a loan is simply 1 percent (one percentage point) of the loan amount. Quotes similar to this one are common with home mortgages. The interest rate quotation in this example requires the borrower to pay 4 points to the lender up front and repay the loan later with 10 percent interest.

  

What rate would Marisol actually be paying here?
