SIMPLE INTEREST Interest is the amount paid for the use of money.

3
FORMULA I=PRT

4
INTEREST EQUALS PRINCIPAL - the amount of money invested or borrowed. RATE - is in the annual interest converted to a decimal. TIME - in years. BALANCE – the sum of the principal and interest earned.

5
SAVINGS ACCOUNT You can also use the formula to find the simple interest when you deposit money in a savings account.

6
INVESTING Angie has $500 in a savings account that pays 5% simple interest. How much interest will she earn in 2 years? Note: 5% equals 0.05 as a decimal.

7
I=PRT Balance = 500 + 50 = $550

8
How much interest will she earn if she withdraws the money after 9 months? 9 months equals 9/12 of a year or 0.75 as a decimal.

9
Your turn. How much interest would you earn on $1000, at 6¾% a year for 4¼ years? Balance = 1000 + 286.88 = $1286.88

10
When invested at an annual interest rate of 6% an account earned $180.00 of simple interest in one year. How much money was originally invested in account? I = PRT 180= 180 =.06P.06.06 3,000 = P Interest paid by bank Principle (invested) is unknown Rate changed to decimal Time is 1 year Multiply Divide P(.06)(1)

11
A savings account is set up so that the simple interest earned on the investment is moved into a separate account at the end of each year. If an investment of $2,000 accumulate $360 of interest in the account after 4 years, what was the annual simple interest rate on the savings account? I = PRT 360= 360 = (2,000)(4)R 360 = 8,000 R 8,000 8,000 0.045 = R 4.5% = R Interest paid by bank Principle (invested) Rate is unknown Time is 4 years Regroup & Multiply Divide Change to % (2,000)(R)(4)
