 Example 1: Greg invests \$1200 at an annual rate of 6.5%. How long will it take until Greg earns \$195 in interest? I = PTR/100 195 = (1200 x T x 6.5) / 100 T = 2.4 Greg will earn \$195 in interest in 2.5 years. Example 2: You invest \$80 at a simple annual interest rate of 2%. How much simple interest would you earn in 1.5 years? \$2.40 Example 3: Nancy owes \$38,000 in student loans. The interest rate on her loans is 8.25%. She will be paying these loans off for 20 years. How much will she pay altogether? I = (p x r x t)/100 I = (\$38,000 x 8.25 x 20)/100 I = \$62,700 Adding the interest back on to the principle, Nancy has to pay \$100,700.
