**Simple Interest I=PRT paid on average balance (principal)**

Interest = Principal x Rate x Time calculate annually paid on average balance (principal) Ex. Deposit of $100 at 6% P= $100 R= 6% T= 1 year I= 100 x .06 x 1= $6

**Try a couple… You deposit $100 at 12% for 1 year**

You deposit $500 at 3.25% for 2 years You deposit $100 at 8% for 6 months (note a month is considered 1/12 of a year)

Compound Interest When you earn interest on both the principal (ie. Your initial deposit) and the interest. EX. After earning $6 in interest on your $100 investment, you allow that money to remain invested, making your principal for the following year $106.

Monthly Daily Note: the more often your money compounds, the more interest you earn.
