Jason’s credit card’s beginning unpaid balance for August is $2,000. During the August billing cycle he made a payment of $200 and used card to purchase $50 worth of grocery. Credit card charges 24% annual percentage rate and uses the unpaid balance method.
a. What is the finance charge at the end of August? (5 Points)
b. What is the new balance at the end of August? (5 Points)
a. The unpaid balance is $1800. On e month's interest on that is 2%, or $36. That is the finance charge in this case.
b. Unpaid balance + finance charge + new purchases = 1800 + 36 + 50 = ?
