You just borrowed \$15,000 from a bank. If you pay \$4,000 at the end of each year over the next 5 years, you will pay off the loan. What is the interest rate on the loan?

• Finance -

(4,000 * 5) - 15,000 = 5,000

I = prt

5,000 = 15,000 * r * 5

5,000 = 75,000 * r

100(5,000 / 75,000) = r

6.67% = r
