Where P = Principal Amount; R = Rate of interest; N = Number of years.

### What is the compound interest?

It is a method of calculating interest on the interest. Here simple interest amount is accumulating to the initial principal amount then calculate the interest on it. In simple interest calculations interest consider for initial amount only interest compound frequency is not added to the principal amount.

Example: Calculate compound interest for the amount $10,000 is saved in an account at an interest rate of 4% for 10 years.

Given Data Principal Amount (p) = $10,000; Interest rate (r) = 4%;

Number of years (n) = 10 yrears.

We know the Compound Interest formula :

CI = (P[1+(R/100)]^n)-P

CI = (10,000 [1(4/100)]^10)-10,000

CI = 14,802.44 - 10,000

**Answer: **

Total interest earned

CI = 4,802.44
