_____ _____ ________

To determine

To calculate: The monthly periodic rate, finance charge and new balance, if previous balance is $167.88, annual percentage rate is 18%, purchase and cash advances are $215.50 and payments and credits are $50.00.

Explanation

Given Information:

Previous balance is $167.88, annual percentage rate is 18%, purchase and cash advances are $215.50 and payments and credits are $50.00

Formula used:

Follow the steps to compute the finance charge and new balance by using the unpaid balance method:

Step1: The formula of the monthly periodic rate is computed when the annual percentage rate is divided with the number of months in a year that is 12 months.

Monthly Periodic Rate=Annual Percentage Rate12

Step2: The formula of finance charge is computed when the balance of the previous month is multiplied with the monthly periodic rate.

Finance Charge=Previous month's balance×periodic rate

Step3: The formula of the new balance is computed by adding all previous month balance, finance charge, purchases and cash advances and subtract the total of payments and credits.

New balance=Previous Balance+Finance charge+Purchases and cash advancesPayments and credits

Calculation:

As, Monthly Periodic Rate=Annual Percentage Rate12

Compute the monthly periodic rate by substituting 18% for annual percentage rate,

Monthly Periodic Rate=Annual Percentage Rate12months=18%12=1.5%

Hence, monthly periodic rate is 1.5%
