We use the sinking fund payment formula to find the interest rate i - we assume it's compounded annually, hence \(n\) is 9.
\(R=\frac{Si}{\left(1+i\right)^n-1}\)
\(3507=\frac{\left(40000\right)i}{\left(1+i\right)^9-1}\)
Multiply both sides by the denominator:
\(3507\left[\left(1+i\right)^9-1\right]=\left(40000\right)i\)
Expand the left side:
\(3507\left(1+i\right)^9-3507=\left(40000\right)i\)
Moving everything over to the left side and set it equal to y.
\(3507\left(1+i\right)^9-40000i-3507=y\)
Now graph it: (shown below)
You should get 0.05819 as a root. Multiply this by 100% to get:
