Find Simple Interest
Find the simple interest for \$2,000 invested at 5.5% for 4 years.
I = prt
Write the simple interest formula.
I = 2000 ● .055 ● 4
Replace p with 2,000, r with 0.055,
and t with 4.
I = 440
The simple interest is \$440.
Find Simple Interest
Find the simple interest for \$230 invested at 12% for 8 years.
I = prt
Write the simple interest formula.
I = 230 ● .12 ● 8
Replace p with 230, r with 0.12, and
t with 8.
I = 220.80
The simple interest is
\$220.80.
Find Simple Interest
What is the total amount of money in an account where \$95 is
invested at a simple interest rate of 7.5% for 9 months.
I = prt
Write the simple interest formula.
I = 95● .075 ● .75
I = 5.34375
Replace p with 95, r with 0.075, and
t with
.75 (3/4).
The simple interest is \$5.34.
I + p = total account
\$5.34 + \$95
Find Simple Interest
