 Posted - 10/13/2012 :  00:15:43 Problem 1: For the given invoice amount, cash discount terms and ordinary interest rate, find how much could be saved on the transaction. \$800; 2/10, n/60; 8%2/10, n/60 means that buyers can take a 2% cash discount off the gross amount of the invoice if they pay the bill within 10 days from the invoice date. If buyers miss the discount period, the net amountâ€”without a discountâ€”is due between day 11 and day 60.When calculating the amount due in the discount period, should I add interest to the amount due? Is interest charged in the discount period?When does the interest rate starts to be charged on the buyer? from the first day of the discount period or it will be charged if the buyer misses credit period? Thank you,
