The interest for 180 days at 2.5% per annum is 24300×2.5/100×180/365=$299.59.

Total amount to pay is 24300+299.59=$24599.59.

In some calculations of this sort the number of days in the year is put at 360. If we apply this in this problem, the interest would be $303.75, making the amount due $24603.75.
