1. I do not know of any store that computes finance charges on an average daily balance basis. It is usually based upon the unpaid balance at the end of the month. You don't say whether the 2% is a daily or monthly rate.

They probably want you to take 2% of the average balance for the month. That average balance is
(11/30*225) + (6/30*262.22) + (14/30*297.33) = 272.60

2% of that is \$5.45
