Chloe Colburn purchased home appliances for her new apartment. Store allowed her to defer payments (interest is still being charged even though payments are deferred) for six months and to make 36 equal end-of-month payments thereafter.

b) Lump-sum payoff amount she needs to take loan from the bank= $4,788.92
c) Monthly rate of interest is the bank charging on this loan= 1.016164%
