I thought it is suposed to be like this:
15/100*100,000 then you get the answer and the asnwer you get add with the number you multiplied with do the same thing for three times? Is it like that?

Ms. Sue,
I don't see how your book can be right. It doesn't make sense that she'd pay interest of five times the amount of the loan.
Check with your teacher.
