okay, I figure how to solve my problem.

Principal: $21,900

Interest Rate: 12%

Date borrowed: March 18 = 77 days

Date repaid: January 9 = 9 days

365 - 77 = 288 + 9 = 297 days

Interest = Prinicpal x Rate x Time

I = $21,900 x .12 x 297/360

I = $2,168.10

Maturity Value = Principal + Interest

MV = $21,900 + $2,168.10

MV = $24,068.10
