a. Calculate the amount of return you would earn if the \$8,000 were invested for one year at 6%.
b. Calculate the net amount of return you would earn if \$2,000 were borrowed at a cost of 15%, and then \$10,000
were invested for one year at 8%.
c. Calculate the net rate of return on your investment of \$8,000 if you accept the strategy of part b.

After completing the "Analysis" worksheet, please proceed to the "What the Numbers Mean" worksheet and respond
