  1. simple interest = principal x rate x time
    for the first one:
    interest = 900(.03)(5) = 135

    do the second one the same way, use 18/12 for the time.

  6. small slip-up
    2.5% = .025 not .0025 like you have

    interest = 1348(.025)(1.5) = 50.55

    (love to have a loan of %1348 where I would only pay $5 in 1 1/2 years)
