## Loan, Deposit Rate Calculation

Simple interest (SI) is a quick method of calculating the interest charge on a loan. Use this simple interest calculator for you to do a loan, deposit rate calculation based on the SI formula.

#### Formula:

SI [Interest] = (P x R x T) / 100 P [sum] = (SI x 100) / (R x T) R [Rate/year] = (SI x 100) / (P x T) T [Time] = (SI x 100) / (P x R) where, S.I. = Simple Interest P = Principal or Sum of amount R = % Rate per annum T = Time Span

Simple interest (SI) is determined by multiplying the daily interest rate by the principal amount and by the number of days that elapse between payments. Consumers who repay their loans on time or early each month will be benefited by this SI rate, as the calculation is done on daily basis. Most of the automobile loans and short-term personal loans apply this interest, whereas most mortgages do not use SI.

P = 5000, R = 10% and T = 5 Years
