# Simple Interest

Simple Interest is a part of the VCE Further Maths topic Recursion and Financial Modelling and subtopic Compound Interest Investments and Loans.

Interest is paid for borrowing money. There are different ways of calculating interest. Simple interest is a percentage of the amount borrowed and doesn’t change over time. The formula used is I = Prn where:

• I = the interest
• P = the amount initially borrowed
• r = the rate of interest
• n = the number of time periods borrowed for.
