Explanation:

Requirement 1

April 30 is the maturity date of the note.

December 31 + January 31 + February 28 + March 31 + April 30 = 150 days.

Therefore, the note will be matured in the April 30, next year.

Requirement 2 & 3

Current year Interest: December 1 - December 31 = 30 days interest = \$230,000 * 12% * (30 : 360) = \$2,300.

Following year Interest: January 1 - April 30 = 120 days interest = \$230,000 * 12% * (120 : 360) = \$9,200.

Total Interest = \$11,500
