Homework Help: arithmetic

Posted by RACHELLE on Monday, June 9, 2008 at 5:57pm.

Barry and Steve are good friends. Barry wants to buy a new computer, but he doesn't have the money for it right now. Barry says he will pay Steve $2000.00 in five years if Steve gives him $1600.00 for the computer today. Steve figures that there is an interest rate of 6% if he were to put the money in a bank instead of lending it to Barry. Assuming that there is no risk of Barry not paying the $2000.00 when he says he will, should Steve go through with the loan or should he put his money in the bank? Explain the answer.
