Making or Spending Money
SIMPLE INTEREST FORMULA
If a principal of P dollars is borrowed for a
period of t years at a per annum interest rate
r, expressed as a decimal, then interest I
charged is
I Pr t
This interest is not used very often. Interest is
usually compounded which means interest
is charged or given on the interest and the
principal.

...*CompoundInterest/Discount*
CompoundInterest
When you borrow money from a bank, you pay interest. Interest is really a fee charged for borrowing the money, it is a percentage charged on the principle amount for a period of a year - usually.
If you want to know how much interest you will earn on your investment or if you want to know how much you will pay above the cost of the principal amount on a loan or mortgage, you will need to understand how compoundinterest works.
* Compoundinterest is paid on the original principal and on the accumulated past interest.
.
Conversion periods are:
Semi-Annually = (m = 2)
Annually = m = 1 / P × (1 + r) = (annual compounding)
Quarterly = m = 4 / P (1 + r/4)4 = (quarterly compounding)
Monthly = m = 12 / P (1 + r/12)12 = (monthly compounding)
The fundamental formula for compound amount is:
F = P(1 + i)n
F = compound amount
P = original principal
i = interest per conversion period which is equal to nominal rate (j) divided by the conversion period (m)
n = total number of conversions period for the whole term; (m * t)
Illustrative Examples:
1.) Find the compoundinterest on P1,000 at the end of 8 ½ years at 8% compounded quarterly.

...savings account. Suppose you have a choice of keeping your money for five years in a savings account with a 2% interest rate, or in a five year certificate of deposit with and interest rate of 4.5%. Calculate how much interest you would earn with each option over five years time with continuous compounding.
I’m going to do this for my checking and savings account amount
Checking Account
A = Ce^RT My total money in the checking account is 2100 dollars Since the formula for the continuous compounding is A=Ce^RT where C is the initial deposit or capital, T for time, R is the rate of interest and A will be the final amount.
Capital = 2100, Interest Rate ( R) = 2% Time (T) = 5 years, e = 2.7182818284
When money kept for five years in a savings account with a 2% interest rate:
By using the values into formula:= 2100 e ^(0.02*5) = 2318.57
Interest earned = 2318.57 – 2100 = 218.57 dollars
Five year certificate of deposit with interest rate of 4.5%.So A = Ce^RT 2100e^4.5*5=2680.19 - 2100=$516.98
Savings Account = P*e^rt = Pe^(0.02*5) = Pe^0.1 = 1.105171P
Therefore, Interest = A - P = 0.105171P
Amount with certificate of deposit account = P*e^rt = Pe^(0.045*5) = Pe^0.225
= 1.252323P
Therefore, Interest = A - P = 0.252323P
A = 10,000e^(.02*5) = $11051.71 <-- 2%
A = 10,000e^(.045*5) = $12,523.23 <--4.5%

...Compounded Interest

We often hear people say that we should let our money work for us.
Using money or capital for income or profit is called an investment.
An accountant manages a company’s money. Then, managers or company investors review their reports to find out the financial status. The demand for accountants increases as more private companies are established. In addition, there are always new and changing laws that increase the need for a person with these skills.
Continuously Compounded interest is what banks normally use to calculate the interest on investments. This method is the equal of continually recalculating the interest based on the current principal amount.
There are different types of CompoundInterest. Interest is the amount of money earned in a saving account.
* Simple Interest: Interest calculated once on the principal.
* CompoundInterest: Interest calculated for a given segment of time of the investment. For example, compounded monthly, means the interest is calculated each month and combined with the principal. So, for the next month, interest is earned on the interest.
Continuously CompoundInterest Formula...

...Compoundinterest is interest added to the principal of a deposit or loan so that the added interest also earns interest from then on. This addition of interest to the principal is called compounding. A bank account, for example, may have its interest compounded every year: in this case, an account with $1000 initial principal and 20% interest per year would have a balance of $1200 at the end of the first year, $1440 at the end of the second year, $1728 at the end of the third year, and so on.
To define an interest rate fully, allowing comparisons with other interest rates, both the interest rate and the compounding frequency must be disclosed. Since most people prefer to think of rates as a yearly percentage, many governments require financial institutions to disclose the equivalent yearly compounded interest rate on deposits or advances. For instance, the yearly rate for a loan with 1% interest per month is approximately 12.68% per annum (1.0112 − 1). This equivalent yearly rate may be referred to as annual percentage rate (APR), annual equivalent rate (AER), effective interest rate, effective annual rate, and other terms. When a fee is charged up front to obtain a loan, APR usually counts that cost as well as the compoundinterest in converting to...

...13.1 CompoundInterest
• Simple interest – interest is paid only on the
principal
• Compoundinterest – interest is paid on both
principal and interest, compounded at regular
intervals
• Example: a $1000 principal paying 10% simple
interest after 3 years pays .1 3 $1000 = $300
If interest is compounded annually, it pays .1
$1000 = $100 the first year, .1 $1100 = $110
the second year and .1 $1210 = $121 the third
year totaling $100 + $110 + $121 = $331 interest
