AND

COMPOUND INTEREST

Since this section involves what can happen to your money, it should be of INTEREST to you!

IMPLE INTEREST FORMULA

Annual interest rate

Interest paid

I = PRT

Time (in years)

Principal(Amount of money invested or borrowed)

If you invested $200.00 in an account that paid simple interest, find how long you’d need to leave it in at 4% interest to make $10.00.

enter in formula as a decimal

I = PRT

10 = (200)(0.04)T

1.25 yrs = T

Typically interest is NOT simple interest but is paid semi-annually (twice a year), quarterly (4 times per year), monthly (12 times per year), or even daily (365 times per year).

annual interest rate(as a decimal)

Principal(amount at start)

time(in years)

amount at the end

number of times per year that interest in compounded

500

Find the amount that results from $500 invested at 8% compounded quarterly after a period of 2 years.

Effective rate of interest is the equivalent annual simple rate of interest that would yield the same amount as that made compounding. This is found by finding the interest made when compounded and subbing that in the simple interest formula and solving for rate.

Find the effective rate of interest for the problem above.

The interest made was $85.83. Use the simple interest formula and solve for r to get the effective rate of interest.

I = Prt 85.83=(500)r(2)

r = .08583 = 8.583%
