Credit Costs
The Language of Credit

Principal $
The original amount of money saved, invested or bought using credit before interest or fees are added.
Interest %
What the lender charges for using credit usually a percentage of the principal.

He was able to purchase a new tire by arranging to repay the $150 owed (principal) for the tire plus 10 percent (interest) in 30 days.

Simple Interest Formula
Calculate a lump sum to be prepaid on a due date.

Interest = Principal x Interest Rate x Time
(in dollars) (in dollars) (as decimal) (no. of years)

$1.25 = $150 x .10 x 1/12

Don't Pay The Minimum Each Month!
You bought “stuff” with your credit card.
In fact, you bought $500 worth of “stuff” with your credit card.
Your APR is 18 percent.
You plan to pay $10 a month to pay it off (Minimum).

You will pay

Final cost of your purchases =

It will take seven years and nine months to
pay off balance.

f = finance charge
P= principal or amount borrowed
N= total number of payments to pay off amount borrowed
Maturity Date
