- Simple Interest Calculator

**Simple interest is calculated only on the initial amount (principal) that you invested.**

**Example:** Suppose you give \$100 to a bank which pays you 5%
simple interest at the end of every year. After one year you will have \$105, and
after two years you will have \$110. This means that you will not earn an interest on your interest.
Your interest payments will be $5 per year no matter how many years the initial sum of money
stays in a bank account.
