6.333 percent

Work Step by Step

Recall, I=Prt, where I is interest, P is the principle (the amount of money invested), r is the rate (which equals the original percentage divided by 100) and t is the time, in years. (Note, we call x the percent interest needed, which is what we want to find. $95=(1500)(x/100)(1)$ $ \\\\ 95=15x \\\\x=6.333 $ 6.333% is what the student needs the interest to be.
