1 Mini Lesson: Compound Interest Revised August 2016 Requires Simple Interest Project as Prerequisite As mentioned in the previous project, interest is the payment you make for using someone else's money or the payment you receive for lending money. Simple interest is equal to a percentage of the amount of money borrowed or loaned. To compute (simple) interest, you need to know the following: Principal = the amount of money borrowed or loaned Rate = the percentage charged to borrow or loan; normally expressed on an annual basis Time = the period of time the money is borrowed or loaned Simple interest can be calculated with the following formula: Interest = Principal * Rate * Time, abbreviated as I = P * R * T As you have previously learned, the principal plus the interest (called the Maturity Value or Value of the Investment) is calculated using the formula below: Maturity Value = P*(1 + (R * T)) Compound interest is a different case; it is where money builds on itself, that is, it is calculated on the principal and the interest earned in prior periods. Computing compound interest is more complicated than computing simple interest because interest will be computed on a new amount each period. The compound amount (or new principal) is the sum of the original principal and its compound interest for that period. The interest period is the time (daily, monthly, quarterly, semiannually or annually) for which interest has been computed. The interest rate is normally quoted on an annual basis (APR) so if interest is computed for a different time period, you must convert the annual interest rate. For example, an 8% APR compounded monthly results in 12 interest payments per year with interest each month equal to 1/12 th of 8%, or about 0.67% per month. To compute compound interest, you will need to know the following: The amount of money on deposit (the balance) The interest rate applied (sometimes called the stated rate of interest) The frequency of compounding (annually, semiannually, quarterly, monthly, daily) Compound interest can be calculated with the same formula as used for simple interest: Interest = Principal * Rate * Time, abbreviated as I = P * R * T However, the formula to calculate Maturity Value when compound interest is applied changes. It is calculated using the formula below, where N = number of time periods. Maturity Value = P * (1 + R) N Compound Interest Part I Directions 1

2 Click on the tab with the worksheet titled Activity 1 to begin. Activity 1: Compute Compound Interest and Compound Value Compounded Annually (using a constant in the formula) Suppose Henry makes an investment of \$1000 with an annual interest rate (APR) of 3.5% that is compounded annually for 5 years. What will the value of Henry s investment be by the end of these 5 interest periods? a. Copy the worksheet titled Activity 1 into a new worksheet and title it "Activity 1 Solution." c.

4 Activity 3: Compute Compound Interest with Different Compounding Frequency While Hillary was shopping for various investment opportunities, she found 2 banks that offered the same interest rate, but different compounding frequencies. Friendly Bank is offering 5.25% APR, compounded semi-annually and Happy Bank is offering 5.25% APR, compounded quarterly. Hillary is curious to see what difference, if any, the compounding frequency will have on the value of her investment. Calculate the value of a \$1000 earning 5.25% APR invested for 10 years under different compounding frequencies. After you have determined the value of the investment for both banks after 10 years, decide which bank Hilary should invest in to reap the highest earnings. a.
