    8. Compute the annual approximate interest cost of not taking a discount using the following scenarios. What conclusion can be drawn from the calculations?

    Approximate Interest rate = Discount %/(1-discount %)*365/(# of days until full payment is due - last day of discount)

    - 2/10 net 20
    Approximate Interest rate = 2%/(1-2%)*365/(20-10)=74.49%

    - 2/10 net 30
    Approximate Interest rate = 2%/(1-2%)*365/(30-10)=37.24%

    - 2/10 net 40
