Q.  You deposit \$600 into a 6 month certificate of deposit. After 6 months the balance is \$618. Find the simple annual interest rate

a. 6%
b. 5%
c. 7%
d. 8%

ANSWER: See Answer

1. To find the interest, subtract the principal from the balance.
\$618 – \$600 = \$18

2.Use the simple interest formula and solve for r.

I = Prt

18= 600 x r x (1/2)

r= 0.06 =6%
