A radio commercial for a loan company states: “You only pay 36¢ a day for each $500 borrowed.” If you borrow $2,322 for 191 days, what amount will you repay, and what annual interest rate is the company actually charging?

(Assume a 360-day year.)

a. Amount you repay =

$

(Round to two decimal places.)

b. Annual interest rate =

Many tax preparation firms offer their clients a refund anticipation loan (RAL). For a fee, the firm will give a client his refund when the return is filed. The loan is repaid when the Internal Revenue Service sends the refund directly to the firm. Thus, the RAL fee is equivalent to the interest charge for a loan. The schedule in the table on the right is from a major RAL lender. Use this schedule to fmd the annual rate of interest for a $1,130 RAL, which is paid back in 18 days.
