working on it

PREVIOUS BALANCE METHOD: P=500 r=0..14 t=1/12 I=Prt =500*0.14*1/12

The adjusted balance method of calculating your finance charge uses your previous balance less any payments and credits made during the billing cycle. New charges are not factored into the adjusted balance. The periodic rate is applied to the adjusted balance to calculate the finance charge.

APR = 14%

Periodic rate = 14/12=1.16

Days in billing cycle = 30

Previous balance = \$500

Payment 10th day = \$50

Charge 20th day = ?

Ending balance = \$500

Finance charge = Adjusted balance * periodic rate

= 350 * 0.0116
= \$5.60

The daily balance method of calculating your finance charge uses the actual balance on each day of your billing cycle. The rate applied is 1/365th of your APR. This is your daily rate. Finance charges are calculated by summing each day’s balance multiplied by the daily rate.

APR = 14%

daily rate = .0004

days in billing cycle = 30

daily balance = \$500

finance charge = (Day 1 balance * daily rate) + ... + (Day 30 balance * daily rate)

= (400*0.0004*10) + (350*0.0004*20)
= \$1.60 + 2.80

=4.40
