Interest Simple Interest Interest is the amount earned on money that is invested or the amount that is charged on money which is borrowed (Loaned). It is normally expressed as a percentage of the amount of money that is either invested or loaned. Example Question 1 If £400 is invested at a 5% interest rate how much interest is earned each year? 5% of £400 = 5 100 x 400 = £20 Example Question 2 A one year loan of £650 is to be paid back at 8% interest. How much interest is paid on the loan? 8% of £650 = 8 100 x 650 = £52

Simple Interest Interest is the amount earned on money that is invested or the amount that is charged on money which is borrowed (Loaned). It is normally expressed as a percentage of the amount of money that is either invested or loaned. Question 1 If £900 is invested at a 4% interest rate how much interest is earned each year? 4% of £900 = 4 100 x 900 = £36 Question 2 A one year loan of £480 is to be paid back at 9% interest. How much interest is paid on the loan? (nearest £). 9% of £480 = 9 100 x 480 = £43

SI Simple Interest Simple interest is calculated only on the initial money invested. This money is called the principal (P) and it is invested at rate (R) over a period of time (T). If you build up interest in your account each year then you do not get interest on any interest payments that may have been credited to your account. In most cases money invested earns interest on the interest as well. This is called compound interest. £33.10£30.00Total Interest gained £133.10£130Amount after 3years £121£120Amount after 2 years £110 Amount after 1 year Compound InterestSimple Interest The table below shows how £100 grows over a 3 year period if it is invested at a rate of 10% Simple interest calculations can be useful in giving you a rough idea of how much interest you earn without doing a more complicated compound calculation as demonstrated in the table below.

Simple Interest The formula below can be used to calculate simple interest. P x R x T 100 I = = P R T 100 I = Interest P = Principal R = rate of interest T = time in years. Example Question 1 Find the simple interest earned when £600 is invested for 2 years at an annual interest rate of 4%. I = PRT 100 = 600 x 4 x 2 100 = £48
