### 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.
• Also the future value of the investment is F = P + I = \$1000 + \$100 = \$1100.
• 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.
• 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)
