What Annual Rate of Interest Is Needed for $2100.00 to earn $122.50 in 14 Mths?
r2100
When the amount of interest, the principal and the time period are known, you can use the derived formula from the simple interest formula to determine the rate. I=Prt becomes r=I/Pt. Remember to use 14/12 for time and move the 12 to the numerator in the formula above. Get your calculator and check to see if you're right.
