Guys, I have a problem in solving an interest question
it basically is: The balance on a credit card is $2563.75 . If the full balance is not paid by the due date, one month's interest will be added at a rate of 18% p.a. Calculate the amount of interest that will be added to the credit card. Thanks for all the helpers! :3 harrowed2 Member $\bg_white interest=2563.75\times \frac{18}{100}\times \frac{1}{12}$ fullonoob fail engrish? unpossible!

this is a stupid question really xD
It doesnt tell you if its overdue or not and by how many months. So you will probably assume that it is one month which is what the previous poster did.
If its 3 months you put 3/12 instead of 1/12 etc.

Calculate the amount of interest that will be added to the credit card. Thanks for all the helpers! :3 The question is fine, it doesn't need to say how many months over due it is, because the question tells us that if the balance isn't paid by the due date, ONE MONTH's interest will be added, ie. if you paid the balance 1, 2, 3 or however many months late, only 1 month of interest will be added. Therefore if the balance is paid after the due date, you'll need to pay 1 months interest on it, so 18% in one year is 1.5% for one month, 1.5% *$2563.75 = \$38.46
