Event Title

Simple Interest as a Special Case of Compound Interest

Session

Management, Business and Economics

Description

In this paper it is shown that the simple interest can be considered as a special case of that compound one, and thus, we are able to calculate the effective interest rate (EIR) for simple interest deposits. Some examples of calculating the balance for simple interest deposits by using the formula for the balance of the compound interest and their corresponding effective interest rates are shown. A mathematical formula for calculation of the effective interest rate for simple interest deposits is given. Instructions of using the financial consultant CASIO FC -100V for accurate calculations, are also shown.

Keywords:

Simple Interest, Compound Interest, Effective Interest Rate.
