    1) Peggy pays £9.35 weekly interest on a loan of £550
    Ciara pays £8.93 weekly interest on a loan of £470
    Work out who pays the higher rate of interest and by how much.

    2)Aaliyah takes out a loan of £3600 to buy a new car.
    She pays £691.20 simple interest monthly for two years
    a. Work out the rate of interest
    b. Work out her total interest payment as a percentage of the original loan.

    Can someone please show me EXACTLY how to work this out?
