Teacher’s/Pupil’s Activities 2 – Simple Interest

Find the The trader Invests ₦2000 in a company that produces and sells cap. How much Interest will he get after 2 years at 10% per annum?

First, find the 10% of ₦2000

= ₦20

~~00~~x 10/1~~00~~= ₦200

Secondly,

Multiply your result by 2

= ₦200 x 2

= ₦400

Or

Interest

= (₦20

~~00~~x 2 x 10)/1~~00~~= ₦20 x 2 10

= ₦400

Teacher’s remark – The ₦2000 is known as the principal, (P). 10% is known as the rate (R) while 2 years is known as time (T).

Therefore, Simple Interest (I) = (P x R x T)/100

Pupil’s Activities 2 – Simple Interest

A trader borrowed ₦3000 for 2 years at 9% per annum is found. Find the simple interest.

I = (P x R x T)/100

Where P = ₦30 000, Rate = 9% and Time = 2 yearsI = (₦30

~~00~~x 9 x 2)/1~~00~~= ₦30 x 9 x 2

= ₦540
