Let the principal amount = P
Simple annual interest = 9%
Simple monthly interest = (9/12) = (3/4)%

(3/4)*(P/100) = 228
=>P = (228 *4 * 10^2 )/3
= 76*4*10^2
= 304 * 10^2

Answer B

D. $32,500

PRT = Simple Interest

Annual interest rate is given as 9%. Monthly interest rate will be 9/12%

p = 228/9/12*100= 228*100*12/9= 30400

B is the answer

$228 a month = 228*12 a year
therefore,
228*12=p*9*1/100
76*4*100 =30400

If the interest is 228/month, then for the year interest will be 2,736, so you get .09x = 2736. The answer is B.

Now for the given option chose such amount whose last digit can be 6.

Hence the answer is B.
