What is the effective annual rate? (Do not round intermediate calculations and enter your answer as a percent rounded to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.)

Answer #1

**Annual Percentage Rate
(APR)**

The APR is calculated by multiplying the interest rate per period with the number of periods compounded per year

Interest Rate per month = 27% per month

Number compounding periods = 12 Months

Therefore, the APR = Interest Rate per month x Number compounding periods

= 27% x 12 Months

= 324%

“Hence, the APR to consumers would be 324%”

**Effective Annual Rate
(EAR)**

Effective Annual Rate (EAR) is calculated by using the following formula

Effective Annual Interest Rate = [1
+ (APR/ n)] ^{n} − 1

Where, APR = 324%

Number of compounding (n) = 12 Months

Effective Annual Rat Interest Rate
(EAR) = [1 + (r/ n)] ^{n} − 1

= [1 + (3.24/12)]^{12} –
1

= [1.27] ^{12} – 1

= 17.605349 – 1

= 16.605349

= 1,660.53% (Rounded to 2 decimal places)

**“Hence, the Effective Annual
Rat Interest Rate (EAR) = 1,660.53%”**

A local finance company quotes an interest rate of 18.1 percent

one year, the finance company requires you to pay $46,059/12, or
$3,838.25 per month over the next 12 months.
