Beginning in February. If the first bill in August is for \$64.37, and the second bill in December is for \$93.02, what rate is interest accruing at if the principal is \$1660.26? p.s. the bill is the interest charged. Last edited by skipjack; March 18th, 2015 at 09:36 PM.

[(93.02  64.37) / 4 * 12] / 1660.26 = .051769... So rate slightly above 5%. Last edited by skipjack; March 18th, 2015 at 09:37 PM.
