Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Additional interest of $521.82 with a simple interest loan to sister generate.Step-by-step explanation:Since we have given that Principal = $28000Rate of interest at simple interest = 8%Number of year = 1so, Interest becomes,[tex]\dfrac{28000\times 8\times 1}{100}\\\\=280\times 8\\\\=\$2240[/tex]Rate of interest compounded quarterly = 6%Amount becomes,[tex]A=P(1+\dfrac{r}{400})^{4n}\\\\A=28000(1+\dfrac{6}{400})^4\\\\A=28000(\dfrac{406}{400})^4\\\\A=\$29718.18[/tex]So, Interest would be [tex]Amount-Principal\\\\=29718.18-28000\\\\=\$1718.18[/tex]Hence, Additional interest is given by[tex]2240-1718.18\\\\=\$521.82[/tex]Hence, Additional interest of $521.82 with a simple interest loan to sister generate.
