From 5/15/2010 to 10/13/2010
Days you were lent the money(lending period) count the days 148(5, 30 day months minus 2 days)
360 days a year

percent of the year you owe the loan, fraction of (days you owe)/(days a year)

Rationale for this percentage of the year:
interest =%*year, you need %*percent of the year you are loaned the money because you don’t owe them for a whole year.

Interest you end up paying

Principal(amount you are loaned)*interest Rate(.0704)*%of year(fraction of days)

Plug-in everything in and you get the total interest you should pay but, you also have to pay back the loan so you add the principal to the interest to get the total amount.
