Simple Interest Interest is like “rent” on a loan. You borrow money (principal). You pay back all that you borrow plus more (interest). Interest is a percent (rate)of the amount borrowed (principal). Interest = principal x rate x time (in years) Typically used in loans for new cars.
Example 1 Find the simple interest paid annually for 2 years on $900 at 16% per year.
Example 2 After 3 months the simple interest earned annually on an investment of $7000 was $63. Find the interest rate.
Compound Interest This is interest earned or paid on both the principal and previously earned interest.
A is the final amount P is the principal r is the interest rate expressed as a decimal n is the number of times the interest is compounded t is the time
