Interest rate is always reported as an annual rate or nominal rate , r . Periodic rate is the annual rate divided by c , the number of periods per year: i = r c principal + interest: F = (1 + i ) P Interest compounded n times: F = (1 + i ) n P Variations: invest for 4.5 years; compound weekly, daily. Present Value: P = 1 (1+ i ) n F Work problems 3, 5, 6, 16 (page 477) Simple interest s s = yr , (the principal is invested for y years.) Consider $1000 at 6% simple interest for 8 months, for 4.5 years Effective rate e [The equivalent simple interest for a one-year investment.] 1 + e = (1 + i ) c = (1 + r c ) c where i = r c is the periodic rate, r is the annual or nominal rate and c is the number of compounding periods per year....
