    By payment, you mean that he paid off $49 of the $767 debt, right?

    As with ALL such problems, the correct answer depends on the EXACT methodology for calculating interest charges. There are MANY different ways to do that. I would guess that the answer is the method that I never have seen actually in practice. 16.5% = 0.165 -- Annual Interest Rate 0.165 / 12 = 0.01375 -- Monthly Interest Rate 767.00 * 0.01375 = 10.55 -- Interest Charges for the Month. Add and subtract the pieces and you should be done.

    ...16.5 IS monthly. And you forgot about that payment of $9.

    I'd like to know if the $49 was before the interest was taken, or after the interest was taken.
