Blastdale Corp. is considering borrowing $15,000 for a 60-
day period. The firm will repay the $15,000 principal
amount plus $200 in interest. What is the effective annual
rate of interest? Use a 360-day year.
Solution
Interest rate for 60-day = $200/$15,000 = 1.33%
Stated rate for 360-days = 1.33% * 6 = 8%
Number of compoundings per year = 6
Effective Annual rate of interest = (1+r/m)m - 1 =
(1+.08/6)6 -1 = 8.2715%
