**Reiny**, Saturday, June 4, 2011 at 7:51pmWhat is your question?

From the disconnected pieces of arithmetic , are we finding the amount due after 3/5 years at simple interest of 10% on a loan of $21250 ?

That would be 21250 + (.1)(3.5)(21250) = 28687.50

Very unusual to have "simple interest" on a time longer than 1 year. Compound interest would be the norm
