    I'm assuming the 8.25% interest is compounded yearly...? My initial calculations suggest that the company will never pay off the loan... maybe I've done something wrong.

    Yeah, but the 8.25% interest rate, it doesn't say if it's compounded yearly or what. The payments are quarterly, maybe the interest is too? idk, it should tell you.

    Have you studied compound interest yet? Maybe it's just simple interest

    Simple interest makes it way easier to solve

    And as far as I can tell, using compound interest... the company won't EVER pay off the loan.

    You want to buy a new motorcycle. The payments will be $244.22 per month for 8 years. The interest rate is 7.35%. What is the asking price of the motorcycle? here is a problem similar

    Have you studied compound interest? There's a big difference between that and simple interest for these problems.

    I'm guessing they're simple interest problems

    Oh, I'm not familiar with computer science, so it looks like I was going at it the wrong way. I looked it up and don't recognize the formulas. This should help, it looks like the same problem as yours: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20121210132233AAtJBAz
