Answers

$500

Explanation:

Principal amount = $15000

Interest rate = 10%

Interest value = 10%*15000

$1,500

Loan term = 120 days

Pro rated interest = 120/365*1500=493.1

To the nearest whole dollar $500

$500

Explanation:

The amount of interest to be recorded Grey Co on the  borrowed amount of $15,000 is computed by applying the interest rate of 10% to the amount borrowed while apportioning the 120 days period by multiplying by 120 days and dividing by 360 days as computed below:

Interest=$15,000*10%*120/360=$500

The interest that Grey Co would record on the $15,000 is $500 during the year using a 360 day per year instead of the usual 365 day which does not make provision for Banks' holidays
