Nancy Tai recently opened a revolving charge account with Mastercard. Her limit is $1000, but she has not charge that much since opening the account. Nancy hasn't had the time to review her monthly statements as promptly as she should, but over the upcoming weekend,she plans to catch up on her work.
In reviewing November's statement , she notices that her beginning balance was $600 and that she made a $200 payment on November 10. She also charged purchase of $80 on November 5, $100 on Novermber 15, and $50 on November 30. She can't tell how much interest she paid in November because she spilled watercolor paint on that protion of her statement.She does remeber, though,seeing the letters APR and the number 16%. Also, the back of her statement indicates that interest was charge using the average daily balance method including current purchase, which considers the day of charge or credit. 1. Assuming a 30-day period in November, calculate November's interest using the average daily balance method. Also, calculate the interst Nancy would have paid with: a)the previous balance method, b)the adjusted balance method.
2.Going back in time, when Nancy was just about open her account, and assuming she could choose among credit sources that offered different monthly balance determinations , and assuming further that Nancy would increase her outstanding balance over time, which credit source would you recommend? Explain. (Show all work for each assignment and eplain each carefully).
