8.1 Simple Interest WHAT IS IT?

Simple Interest

The total AMOUNT: the total value of an investment or a loan

I = Prt
A = P + I
A = P + Prt
A = P ( 1 + rt )

P : principal

r : interest rate, expressed as a decimal

t : the same period as the interest rate, usually per year FORMULAS TERMS

PRINCIPAL: a sum of money that is borrowed or invested

INTEREST: money you earn from an investment

the cost of borrowing money LEARNING TOOLS How much money does Iris owe us? WHY DO WE NEED TO KNOW SIMPLE INTEREST? Simple interest is something that, if not already, could affect our lives in the future.
