    Rate = I/PT. That I can figure but somewhere I am messing up, thanks again, denise PS Exact interest is used as 365 days, I've been doing that part right too, I think, lol!

    11% means that someone will obtain $3400*0.11=$374 in a year. But 176 days is a \(\frac{176}{365}=0.482\) part of the year. So it will be $374*0.482=$180,268.
