# Math-Needing Help Quick!

When Beth finishes college, she has a
balance or \$2876.37 on a credit card with an annual percentage rate (APR)
or 17.3%. She decides to not make any
additional purchases with her card until
she has paid off the balance.
Assuming the minimum payment is 2% of the balance, find her minimum payment.

I keep getting \$575.27.
If I am wrong, please show me how to
solve this.

The APR divided/12 is the monthly interest rate, or 17.3/12 =1.442
She pays two percent, so the net payment to the balance is .448 percent.
.02*(2876.37)(1+ 17.3/12)=

Do I say .02 times 2876.37 and how do I
figure the rest? You have me confused.

are you there?
