You have two investment opportunities. One will have a 9.0% rate of return on an investment of $590; the other will have an 12.0% rate of return on principal of $860. You would like to take advantage of the higher yielding investment but have only $590 available.
What is the maximum rate of interest that you would pay to borrow the $270 needed to take advantage of the higher yield? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your final answer to 2 decimal places. (e.g., 32.16))
