    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
