5.Elaine was charged $195 interest for 1 month on a $1000 credit card balance. What was the monthly interest rate?

A) 20.5% B) 20% C) 19% D) 19.5%

My answer: D) 19.5%

Is it just me or does #5 seem like the interest rate should be 0.195 instead of 19.5%?? Because $1000*0.195=195 and that would be a lot more reasonable than 19.5%. I don't know...

I agree with your anwser of 19.5%.

195/1000 = .195

.195 * 100 = 19.5

So it is 19.5% D is the correct answer there.
