To buy a car, Jessica borrowed $15,000 for 3 years at an annual simple interest rate of 9%. How much interest will she pay if she pays the entire loan off at the end of the third year? What is the total amount that she will repay?

First, find the interest she will pay.

I = PrtUse the formula.

I = 15,000 0.09 3 Substitute. Use 0.09 for 9%.

- I = 4050Solve for I.

Jessica will pay $4050 in interest.

You can find the total amount A to be repaid on a loan by adding the principal P to the interest I.

P+ I = Aprincipal + interest = amount

15,000 + 4050 = ASubstitute.

Jessica will repay a total of $19,050 on her loan.

I = 1,250 0.03 5Substitute. Use 0.09 for 9%.

- I = $187.50Solve for I.

Nancy will earn $187.50 in interest.

You can find the total amount Ain her account by adding the principal P to the interest I.
