Lab 4 Question 3 – Finanace question regarding effective monthly rate and effective annual rate- please read?

Below is the question- I just cant seem to figure out how to show for the rates given below as solution using a BA II calculator or any other financial calculator. Does anyone know how to solve for the rates using a calculator?

A local finance company quotes a 10 percent interest rate on one-year loans. So, if you borrow \$30,000, the interest for the year will be \$3,000. Because you must repay a total of \$33,000 in one year, the finance company requires you to pay \$33,000/12, or \$2,750, per month over the next 12 months.

(a) This is not really a 10 percent loan. Instead, what is the effective monthly rate?

don’t plagiarize

divide the 10% by 12 for a monthly rate.

that will have you paying about 31, 500 total instead of 33,000 if it is a real 10% loan

a 30,000 loan at 10% over 12 months should actually be 2637.47 per month or 31,649.64

18% will get you a payment of 2750.39

my ba-35 lost its battery, so i had to do this the hard way

17.972% will get you payments of exactly 2750.00

big lesson here is—-never believe the finance company, but you already know that
