Section 5.1: Simple and Compound Interest

Simple Interest Simple Interest: Used to calculate interest on loans…often of one year or less. Formula: I = Prt  I : interest earned (or owed)  P : principal invested (or borrowed)  r : annual interest rate  t : time in years

Example 1 To buy furniture for a new apartment, Jennifer Wall borrowed \$5,000 at 6.5% simple interest for 11 months. a. How much interest will she pay? Simple interest: I = Prt I = ?

Example 1 To buy furniture for a new apartment, Jennifer Wall borrowed \$5,000 at 6.5% simple interest for 11 months. b. What is the total amount to be repaid?

Example 1 To buy furniture for a new apartment, Jennifer Wall borrowed \$5,000 at 6.5% simple interest for 11 months. b. What is the total amount to be repaid? Amount to Repay = Principal + Interest

Example 1 To buy furniture for a new apartment, Jennifer Wall borrowed \$5,000 at 6.5% simple interest for 11 months. b. What is the total amount to be repaid? Amount to Repay = Principal + Interest = 5000 + 297.92

Example 1 To buy furniture for a new apartment, Jennifer Wall borrowed \$5,000 at 6.5% simple interest for 11 months. b. What is the total amount to be repaid? Amount to Repay = Principal + Interest = 5000 + 297.92 = \$ 5,297.92

Example 1 To buy furniture for a new apartment, Jennifer Wall borrowed \$5,000 at 6.5% simple interest for 11 months. b. What is the total amount to be repaid? Amount to Repay = Principal + Interest = 5000 + 297.92 = \$ 5,297.92 Notice here that we really have: A = P + I … or A = P + Prt = P(1 + rt)

Example 1 To buy furniture for a new apartment, Jennifer Wall borrowed \$5,000 at 6.5% simple interest for 11 months. b. What is the total amount to be repaid? Amount to Repay = Principal + Interest = 5000 + 297.92 = \$ 5,297.92 Notice here that we really have: A = P + I … or A = P + Prt = P(1 + rt) So, if you want a direct formula for A with simple interest, use A = P(1 + rt)

Amount to Repay = Principal + Interest = 5000 + 297.92 = \$ 5,297.92 Notice here that we really have: A = P + I … or A = P + Prt = P(1 + rt) So, if you want a direct formula for A with simple interest, use A = P(1 + rt) and, of course if you only want I, then use I = Prt

Example 4: Effective Rate The Effective Annual Rate (EAR) is the rate that would be paid using simple interest in order to be equivalent to a stated compounded rate.

Example 4: Effective Rate The Effective Annual Rate (EAR) is the rate that would be paid using simple interest in order to be equivalent to a stated compounded rate. Financial institutions are usually required by law to provide the effective rate so that consumers can easily compare ‘apples to apples’.

Example 4: Effective Rate Ex. Find the effective annual rate corresponding to a rate of 8% compounded quarterly. The Effective Annual Rate (EAR) is the rate that would be paid using simple interest in order to be equivalent to a stated compounded rate.
