# Interest Formula

## Online Tutoring Is The Easiest, Most Cost-Effective Way For Students To Get The Help They Need Whenever They Need It.

If the Principal amount, rate of interest and time period is known, then the simple interest can be calculated using the interest formula,

I = P * T * R / 100

Here P is the principal amount over which interest is to be calculated

T is the time period in years

R is the annual rate at which interest is calculated

This formula is used for calculating the interest on a loan taken.

Example -1: Find the total amount of simple interest that is paid over a period of 5 years on a principal of \$ 30,000 at a simple interest rate of 6%.

Solution: We are given P = \$ 30,000

R = 6 %

T = 5 yrs

We can calculate the simple interest using the interest formula.

I = P * T * R / 100

Now we put the values in the formula we get,

I = 30,000 * 5 * 6 / 100

I = 900,000 / 100

I = 9000

Thus the interest on the given amount is \$ 9000.

Example 2:   Find the simple interest on \$ 10,000 at the rate of 5% for 3 years.

Solution:   It is given that the Principal = \$ 10,000       Rate = 5 %     Time = 3 year
The interest formula is I = P * T * R / 100

On putting the values in the interest formula and solving,

I = 10,000 * 5 * 3 / 100

I = 150, 000 / 100

I = 1500

Thus we get an interest of \$ 1500 on the given principal amount.
