6.7 Compound Interest

2
If a principal of P dollars is borrowed for a period of t years at a per annum interest rate r, expressed in decimals, the interest I charged is I=Prt Amount after t years is A = P+ I = P+Prt = P(1+rt) Simple Interest.

3
The amount A after t years due to a principal P invested at an annual interest rate r compounded n times per year is Compound Interest

4
Continuous Compounding The amount A after t years due to a principal P invested at an annual interest rate r compounded continuously is
