Learning Unit Objectives
#10 Simple Interest Learning Unit Objectives Finding Unknown in Simple Interest Formula Using the interest formula, calculate the unknown when the other two (principal, rate, or time) are given

Maturity Value = Principal (P) + Interest (I)
Cost of borrowing money The amount of the loan (Face value)

Simple Interest Formula
Simple Interest (I) = Principal (P) x Rate (R) x Time (T) Stated as a Percent Stated in years Maha borrowed \$30,000. The loan was for 6 months at a rate of 8%. What is interest and maturity value? SI = \$30,000 x.08 x 6 = \$1,200 12 MV = \$30,000 + \$1,200 = \$31,200

The Method of Calculating Simple Interest and Maturity Value
Exact Interest (365 Days) Time = Exact number of days 365

The Method of Calculating Simple Interest and Maturity Value
On March 4, Ray borrowed \$40,000 at 8%. Interest and principal are due on July 6. Exact Interest (365 Days) I = P X R X T \$40,000 x .08 x 124 365 \$1,087.12 MV = P + I \$40,000 + \$1,087.12 \$41,087.12

Finding Unknown in Simple Interest Formula - Principal
Interest (I) = Principal (P) x Rate (R) x Time (T) Christina Jones paid the bank \$19.48 interest at 9.5% for 90 days. How much did she borrow? Principal = Interest Rate x Time .095 times 90 divided by Do not round answer \$ P = .095 x (90/365) = \$831.6

I = P x R x T = 10000 x 10 x 3 100 = \$ 3000 I must pay back = P + I
How much must I pay back if I borrow \$10000 for 3 years at 10% pa simple interest? I = P x R x T = x 10 x 3 100 = \$ 3000 I must pay back = P + I = =\$ 13000 .Total amount = P + I .

What simple interest rate would allow \$ 6000 to grow to an amount of \$ 14550 in 10 years?
So the simple interest I= – 6000 =\$ 8550 Rate = Interest Principal x Time .I was getting 14.25% interest rate R = \$ = % pa. 6000x 10

Finding Unknown in Simple Interest Formula - Rate
Interest (I) = Principal (P) x Rate (R) x Time (T) Christina Jones borrowed \$ from the bank. Her interest is \$19.48 for 90 days. What rate of interest did Christina pay? Rate = Interest Principal x Time \$ R = \$ x (90/365) = 9.6%

Finding Unknown in Simple Interest Formula - Time
Interest (I) = Principal (P) x Rate (R) x Time (T) Christina Jones borrowed \$ from the bank. Her interest is \$19.48 for 9.5%. How much time does Christina have to repay the loan? Time (yrs) = Interest Principle x Rate Convert years to days (assume 365 days) \$ T = \$ x = .25 .25 x 365 = days

Vocabulary: Principal: an amount of money owed by an investor and held by a financial institution such as a bank. Deposit: the act of establishing , or adding to , existing principal. Balance: the amount of money in an account. Interest: the amount of money you earn by leaving deposits in a bank or financial institution Interest is a percentage of your principal. Term: the period of time an investment lasts.

Steps to answer simple interest question
Ahmad borrowed \$ for 4 months at 12.75% pa simple interest to pay for her new house while her old one was being sold . How much interest did she pay? And how much was paid back altogether? P = \$78000 T= 4 months or 4 /12 years R = 12.75% or or 12.75 100 I= ? Step 1. Read the problem carefully and list the information( look for the ‘key’ words) Step 2. Find the interest I = P x R x T = x 12.75% x 4/12 = \$ 3315 Step 3. To calculate the amount paid all together The total amount = P + I = =\$81315
