2. I = k(P)(T) , compare with I = PRT, so k is jus like the rate R

given: when P = 3000, T=6, then I = 1260
1260 = k(3000)(6
k = 1260/( (3000)(6) ) = .07 , mmhhh, looks like we just found the interest rate

I = .07(P)(T)
so for the last part

I = .07(3000)(7) = 1470

3. I sure hope that the above is not how "they" are teaching you to calculate simple interest
