  1. Value of loan = $300

    let the monthly rate be i
    then
    34*(1- (1+i)^-10)/i = 300

    hard to solve this type of equation but I have some methods and it gave me
    i = appr .02343
    so the annual rate compounded monthly is 28.1 %

    check:
    34(1 - 1.02343^-10)/.02343 = = 299.9988 , not bad I would say

    None of your choices are valid using proper compound interest formulas
