a. Calculate the effective rate of interest on the loan.

b. In addition, the bank requires you to maintain a compensating balance of 15 percent in the bank.

This means that you will have to put up 15 percent of the loan amount from your own personal money (which you had planned to use to help finance the business) in a checking account. What is the cost of the loan now?

c. In addition to the compensating-balance requirement in part (b), you are told that interest will be discounted. What is the effective rate of interest on the loan now?

a. What is the effective rate of interest, or APR, on the loan? ___% (Round to two decimal places.)
