# Using ordinary interest, 360 days, calculate the bank discount, proceeds, and effective rate for the following simple discount notes. Round effective rate to the nearest hundredth of a percent. Face Discount Term Bank Effective Value Rate (%) (days) Discount Proceeds Rate (%) 15. $57,500 12 3 4 230 _____________ _______________ __________ To determine To calculate: The amount of bank discount, proceeds value and effective rate of interest where face value is$57,500, discount rate is 1234%, time period is 230 days.

Explanation

Given Information:

Face value is $57,500, discount rate is 1234%, time period is 230 days. Formula used: The formula to calculate the time for ordinary interest is, Time=Number of days of a loan360 The formula to compute the amount of bank discount is, Bank Discount=Face value×Discount Rate×Time The formula to calculate amount of proceeds is, Proceeds=Face valueDiscount The formula to calculate effective rate of interest is, Effective interest rate=InterestPurchase Price×Time Calculation: Consider that face value of loan is$57,500, discount rate is 1234% and time period is 230 days.

Compute the discount amount,

Simplify the discount rate as,

1234%=514%=12.75%=12.75100=0.1275

Evaluate the time as,

Time=Number of days of a loan360=230360

Substitute \$57,500 for face value, 0.1275 for discount rate and 230360 for time in the formula

Bank Discount=Face value×Discount Rate×Time” as,

Bank Discount=Face value×Discount Rate×Time=57,500×0
