# Calculate the interest, purchase price, and effective interest rate of the following Treasury bill (T-bill) purchases. Round effective interest rate to the nearest hundredth of a percent. Face Discount Term Purchase Effective Value Rate (%) (weeks) Interest Price Rate (%) 24. $35,000 3.80 4 To determine To calculate: The amount of bank interest, purchase price and effective rate of interest where face value is$35,000, discount rate is 3.80%, time period is 4 weeks.

Explanation

Given Information:

Face value is $35,000, discount rate is 3.80% and time period is 4 weeks. Formula used: The formula to calculate the time is, Time=Number of weeks of a loan52 The formula to compute the amount of bank interest is, Bank interest=Face value×Discount Rate×Time The formula to calculate purchase price is, Purchase Price=Face valueInterest The formula to calculate effective rate of interest is, Effective interest rate=InterestPurchase Price×Time Calculation: Consider that face value of loan is$35,000, discount rate is 3.80% and time period is 4 weeks.

Compute the interest amount,

Simplify the interest rate as,

3.80%=3.80100=0.038

Evaluate the time as,

Time=Number of weeks of a loan52=452

Substitute $35,000 for face value, 0.038 for discount rate and 452 for time in the formula Bank interest=Face value×Discount Rate×Time” as, Bank interest=Face value×Discount Rate×Time=35,000×0.038×452=$102
