Uanita borrowed $600 to purchase a new computer. she was charged 7% interest for two years. she used the simple interest formula to find the interest. i = 600(7)(2) what error did juanita make and how will her error affect the interest she calculates? explain.
Juanita did not change the 7% to the decimal 0.07. When she completes the problem as written, the interest will be greater than the money she borrowed.
hi e d g u e n i t y cheaters hehe, i mean you know i aint lying doe
Juanita forgot to convert the interest rate from a percent to a decimal.
She should have used the value 0.07 for the interest rate.
The interest she calculates will be more than the money she borrowed.
The interest she calculates will be $8400 instead of $84.
