8 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 124365$1,087.12MV = P + I$40,000 + $1,087.12$41,087.12
9 Finding Unknown in Simple Interest Formula - Principal Interest (I) = Principal (P) x Rate (R) x Time (T)Christina Jones paid the bank $19.48 interest at 9.5% for 90 days. How much did she borrow?Principal = InterestRate x Time.095 times 90 divided by Do not round answer$P = .095 x (90/365) = $831.6
10 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 3100= $ 3000I must pay back = P + I==$ 13000.Total amount = P + I.
11 What simple interest rate would allow $ 6000 to grow to an amount of $ 14550 in 10 years? So the simple interest I= – 6000=$ 8550Rate = InterestPrincipal x Time.I was getting 14.25% interest rateR = $ = % pa.6000x 10
12 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 $19.48 for 90 days. What rate of interest did Christina pay?Rate = InterestPrincipal x Time$R = $ x (90/365) = 9.6%
13 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 $19.48 for 9.5%. How much time does Christina have to repay the loan?Time (yrs) = InterestPrinciple x RateConvert years to days (assume 365 days)$T = $ x = .25.25 x 365 = days
