    Okay so here is the formula:\[\Large Interest = Principle \times {Rate} ^ {Time}\] We know Interest = $102, Rate = 4.25%, and Time = 3 years. So can you plug these into the formula and solve for Principle?

    That's less than a cent. No way is he borrowing less than a cent from a bank and paying $102 interest on it.

    Because you have to convert the rate to a decimal
