 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: 5.82 Attached file Thumbnail(s): You must login or register to gain access to this attachment.
