 Again, use the annuity formula:$$\frac{162\left[(1+i)^{30\times 12}-1\right]}{i}=151678$$Simplify a little bit:$$\frac{(1+i)^{30\times 12}-1}{i}=\frac{151678}{162}$$After solving for $$i$$ via whatever method you're comfortable with (I chose graphing), you should get 0.005, and as a percent, that's 0.50% interest.
