# Compound interest calculator

Compound Interest is calculated on the initial payment and also on the interest of previous periods.

Example: Suppose you give \$100 to a bank which pays you 10% compound interest at the end of every year. After one year you will have \$100 + 10% = \$110, and after two years you will have \$110 + 10% = \$121. Click here to view some problem which can be solved by using this calculator. Problem If you deposit$3500 into an account paying 10% annual interest compounded monthly , how much money will be in the account after 8 years?

Result

The amount is $7763.37 and the interest is$4263.37.

Explanation

STEP 1: To find amount we use formula:

 $$A = P \left( 1 + \frac{r}{n} \right)^{\Large{n \cdot t}}$$ A = total amount P = principal or amount of money deposited, r = annual interest rate n = number of times compounded per year t = time in years

In this example we have

$$P = \3500 ~,~ r = 10 \% ~ , ~ n = 12 ~ \text{and} ~ t = 8 ~ \text{years}$$

After plugging the given information we have

\begin{aligned} A &= 3500 \left( 1 + \frac{ 0.1 }{ 12 } \right)^{\Large{ 12 \cdot 8 }} \\ A &= 3500 \cdot { 1.008333 } ^ { 96 } \\ A &= 3500 \cdot 2.218105 \\ A &= 7763.37 \end{aligned}

STEP 2: To find interest we use formula $A = P + I$, since $A =$7763.37 $and$ P = $3500$ we have:

\begin{aligned} A &= P + I \\ 7763.37 &= 3500 + I \\ I &= 7763.37 - 3500 \\ I &= 4263.37 \end{aligned}
