### Simple Interest

Section 5.1

Introduction

- When you deposit money into a savings at a bank you expect the bank to pay you for the privilege of saving your money with them. This is extra money is called interest.
- Interest is also paid by a borrower to a lender for the privilege of using money.
- In this chapter we study the methods of computing interest.

Simple Interest Formula

- The simple interest I on a principal (present value) P at an annual interest rate r for t years is I = Prt.
- The balance or future value F is given by F = P + I = P + Prt = P(1 + rt).
- Example: calculate the simple interest on $1000 deposit at an annual interest rate of 5% for 2 years.
- ANSWER: I = ($1000)(.05)(2)=$100.
- Also the future value of the investment is F = P + I = $1000 + $100 = $1100.

Add – on interest

- Add – on interest is a way of calculating interest used by car dealerships, appliance stores, furniture stores etc.
- The lender computes the simple interest on the loan amount and adds that on to the loan amount so that the interest is distributed equally over each payment.

Add – on interest example

- A $1200 flat-screen TV is financed over a 2 year period with 12% add-on interest. Find the monthly payment.
- First calculate the simple interest on the loan: $1200 x 0.12 x 2 = $288.
- The future value of the loan is

$1200 + $288 = $1488.

- Since the loan is for 2 years, there will be 24 monthly payments. Thus the monthly payment is $1488/24=$62

Finance Charges

- Everyone who has a credit card knows that if they do not pay-off their balance each month they will be assessed a monthly finance charge. How is this computed???
- Credit card companies use the average daily balance. The lender charges interest for the actual number of days an amount was owed on the bill.

Example of average daily balance

- Let’s look at George W. Bush’s credit card statement. The APR is 21%.
- He’s carrying a balance of $287.84.
- On June 12 he got an oil change and for his car. This cost $45.60.
- He made a payment of $150 on June 18.
- He then got gasoline for $20 on June 22.
- Then he got some PS-2 games for $78.50 on July 3.

Doing the calculations

- Avg. Daily Balance = [2(287.84)+6(333.44)+4(183.44)+11(203.44)+7(281.94)]/(2 + 6 + 4 + 11 + 7)

ADB = 7521.50/30 = $250.72

- Instead of using the annual percentage rate (APR), we use the daily percentage rate for this account which is .21/365. Also the time will be measured in days hence

t = 30. Use the simple interest formula to compute the finance charge.

- Finance charge = 250.72 x (.21/365) x 30 = $4.33
- The new balance on W’s credit card will be $281.94 + $4.33 = $286.27
