# Use the exact interest method (365 days) and the ordinary interest method (360 days) to compare the amount of interest for the following loans.Principal Rate (%) Time (days) Exact Interest Ordinary Interest__________________________________________________________________________$350 14.1 230 _________ ___________ To determine To calculate: The comparison between exact interest and the ordinary interest for the loan of$350 over a period of 230 days at a rate of interest of 14.1% per annum by Exact interest method and ordinary interest method.

Explanation

Given Information:

The loan of $350 is taken at the rate of interest, 14.1% per annum for the time period of 230 days. Formula Used: The simple interest formula is I=P×R×T, where T is the time period in years. For exact interest, T=Numberofdaysofloan365 For ordinary interest, T=Numberofdaysofloan360 Calculation: Consider the data provided as the loan of$350 is taken at the rate of interest of 14.1% per annum for the time period of 230 days.

Then the Interest can be calculated in the following manner,

The time period for exact interest is,

T=230365

ExactInterest(I)=P×R×T
