Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:$77.5 per month.Step-by-step explanation:Gyuhun took a loan of $1500 which will be repaid in two years. So, each month he has to pay the principal of  $[tex]\frac{1500}{2 \times 12}= 62.5[/tex]. Now, he has to give the interest also per month. The loan is charged at 12% per year i.e 1% per month.
