ANSWER




1.a. The effective rate is 9.1428571%
effective rate = 16000 divided by 175000 x 100= 0.091428571x 100

1.b. The effective rate is 9.89%
Interest is 15,750 computed as : 175000 x 9%
The net proceed of loan is $ 159,250 computed as : 175000 minus 15750
Effective rate is: computed as follows: 15,750/159250 x100= 9.89%

1.c Based on less cost, I would prefer Loan with 16000 interest payable at the end of the year.

2.At 8.375% discount rate, I would be indifferent to both loan.
Interest = 175000 x 8.375= 14656.25
Net proceed = 175000- 14656.25 =160343.75
Effective rate = 14656.25/160,343.75 x 100 = 9.14%

Note: Computation of 8.375% is based on trial and error method, where a high and low figures are used and interpolated figure is tried , with objective that effective rate will be equal to the other loan's effective rate.
