a. Simple interest, S.I = $2,625 b. Total amount =$12,625

Step-by-step explanation:

Given the following data;

Principal = $10,000 Interest rate = 10.5% Time = 30 months to years = 2.5 years a. To find the simple interest; Mathematically, simple interest is calculated using this formula; Where; • S.I is simple interest. • P is the principal. • R is the interest rate. • T is the time. Substituting into the formula, we have;  Simple interest, S.I =$2,625

b. To calculate the total amount Sonia would have to repay the bank;

Total amount = simple interest + principal

Total amount = 2625 + 10000

Total amount = \$12,625
