interest calculation question

posted by: susan_on on 08.05.2012 at 06:36 pm in Kitchen Table Forum

I am not very good at math at all, but I have a math question related to calculating interest on a loan.

If someone is borrowing $12,000; and plans to pay it back at approx $200 a month, plus 1% interest... how much would the payments be?

Today's Funny!

A Sunday school teacher was telling her class the story of the Good Samaritan.

She asked the class, "If you saw a person lying on the roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?"

A thoughtful little girl broke the silence, "I think I'd throw up."

A Sunday school teacher asked, "Johnny, do you think Noah did a lot of fishing when he was on the Ark ?"

"No," replied Johnny. "How could he, with just two worms?"

A Sunday school teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible - Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the chapter.

Little Rick was excited about the task - but he just couldn't remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line.

On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Ricky was very nervous.

When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my Shepherd, and that's all I need to know."

A Rabbi said to a precocious six-year-old boy, "So your mother says your prayers for you each night? That's very commendable. What does she say?"

The little boy replied, "Thank God he's in bed!"

When my daughter, Kelly, said her bedtime prayers, she would bless every family member, every friend, and every animal (current and past).

For several weeks, after we had finished the nightly prayer, Kelly would say,"And all girls." This soon became part of her nightly routine, to include this closing.

My curiosity got the best of me and I asked her, "Kelly, why do you always add the part about all girls?" Her response, "Because everybody else always finishes their prayers by saying 'All Men!"

Little Johnny and his family were having Sunday dinner at his grandmother's house. Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served.

When Little Johnny received his plate, he started eating right away.

"Johnny! Please wait until we say our prayer." said his mother. "I don't need to," the boy replied.
"Of course, you do his mother insisted. "We always say a prayer before eating at our house."

"That's at our house." Johnny explained. "But this is Grandma's house, and she knows how to cook."

Nothing sounds better to me than cake full of bananas, nuts and chocolate chips. Woo hoo! Got to try this soon. Maybe today. I'll bake it in a 9x13" pan though and make ganache for the top.


3 ripe bananas
1 box yellow cake mix
1 1/3 cup water
3 whole eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup chocolate chips
chocolate frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 2 (9 inch size) round cake pans with cooking spray.

Peel 2 bananas and mash them up in a bowl. Add cake mix, water, eggs and oil. Beat on low speed of mixer until well combined, about 1 minute. Increase speed to high and beat until mixture is smooth, about 3 minutes.

Chop remaining banana into 1/2 inch pieces. Using rubber spatula, fold bananas, chopped walnuts and chocolate chips into cake batter. Divide batter evenly between pans.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle of cake comes out clean. Cool in pans about 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely. Frost cake with chocolate frosting, putting icing between layers

I'd use corn flakes for the coating if I don't have rice krispies.

Baked Chicken Supreme (Kellogg's)
A contemporary version of classic fried chicken, this entree eliminates the need for messy frying, but still delivers a tasty, crisp coating.

4 cups Rice Krispies (crushed to 2 cups)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
3 pounds chicken pieces, washed and patted dry
3 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted

Place cereal in shallow dish or pan. Stir in paprika. Set aside. In medium mixing bowl, beat egg and milk slightly. Add flour, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Mix until smooth.

Dip chicken in batter. Coat with cereal. Place in single layer, skin side up in shallow baking pan coated with cooking spray or foil lined. Drizzle with melted margarine.

Bake at 350 degrees about 1 hour or until chicken is tender, no longer pink and juices run clear. Do not cover pan or turn chicken while baking.

Glenda, you made me hungry! I've made mayonnaise, too. Personally, I like Kraft :0

I think I've posted this before but it's worth repeating. I got the recipe from a recipe book my sister's club put out. It's so easy, and looks and tastes really good.

Picnic Cake

1 box yellow cake mix
10-15 large marshmallows (or use enough minis to cover the top)
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. chopped pecans

Prepare cake mix according to box directions and pour into a greased/floured 13x9" pan. Cut marshmallows in half and arrange, cut side down, on top of the batter. Mix brown sugar and nuts together and sprinkle over the top. Bake according to box directions.
