To ﬁnd the eﬀective rate earned we have to solve 600 = 208.65 (1 + i) −3

+ 426.23 (1 + i)

−5

+ 2248.73 (1 + i)

−8

Trying various values such as i = 0.1 and i = 0.2, we have LHS¡RHS. With i = 0.25, RHS=620 and with i = 0.26, RHS=596, so it is between 0.25 and 0.26 and closer to 0.26. Further investigation shows it is 0.258, i.e. 25.8% 4. Same exercise
