Explanation

Given Information:

V press received a $70,000 promissory note, the interest rate is 12% for 60 days from its customer R bookstore. After 20 days, the note was discounted at the rate 14.5%. The date of the note is 21 March. Formula used: Steps for determining the maturity date of a loan are: Step1. Calculate the number of days that are left in the month loan is taken by subtracting the loan date from the number of days in the month. Step2. Subtract the number of days remaining in the first month from the total duration of the loan. Step3. Keep on subtracting the days from consequent months until the maturity date corresponds to the difference (b) To determine To calculate: The maturity value of the promissory note where V press received a$70,000 promissory note, the interest rate is 12% for 60 days from its customer R bookstore. After 20 days, the note was discounted at the rate 14.5%. The date of the note is 21 March.

(c)

To determine
