Answer

$11,601.78

- Find the interest rate per day. A: The interest rate per day would be 7%/365 = 0.01917808%.
- Calculate the interest for 64 days (August 12 - October 15) on the principal amount of $32,000 at the daily interest rate. A: Interest for 64 days would be (0.01917808% * 64) * $32,000 = $391.52.
- Subtract the payment made on October 15 from the amount calculated in Step 2. A: $391.52 - $12,000 = -$11,608.48.
