Martha: The distributor gets twelve five. (Meaning 12.5%?)

Jonathan: The feed bill over six months at five percent. (What is feed bill?

Does he mean they have to include 5% of it for the last 6 months?)

Martha: Plus the mortgage at eight point two. (Plus 8.2% for the mortgage, right?) Plus the harvester repairs gives us...

Clark: Fifty four thousand five hundred and one dollars and thirty-eight cents.

Hi,

This is all rather fragmentary and cryptic.

Martha: The distributor gets twelve five. (Meaning 12.5%?) $12,500

Jonathan: The feed bill over six months at five percent. (What is feed bill? A bill for buying food. The term 'feed bill' is one that would be used by a farmer, to talk about his livestock costs.

Does he mean they have to include 5% of it for the last 6 months?) It's hard to say. Perhaps it refers to a 6-month period at an interest rate of 5% per year.

Martha: Plus the mortgage at eight point two. (Plus 8.2% for the mortgage, right?) Probably.

Plus the harvester repairs gives us...

Clark: Fifty four thousand five hundred and one dollars and thirty-eight cents.
Best wishes, Clive
