The Rule of 72 A rule that states in order to find the number of years required to double your money at a given interest rate, you divide the compound interest rate into 72.

In reality, a 10% investment will take 7.3 years to double ((1.10^7.3 = 2). Albert Einstein is often credited with discovering the compound interest Rule of 72.
