    this problem has the same structure as the one I answered for you 4 minutes ago.
    The only difference is that one has to conclude that the amount of interest is $166

    let me know what rate you got.

    Just like before
    R = I/PT
    = 166/(2000x2)
    = 166/4000
    = .0415
    = 4.15%

    its $2166 NOT $166

    She deposited 2000 and got back 2166
