Practice Test on Simple Interest



Math practice test on simple interest will help the children to learn how to calculate simple interest, principal, rate, time and amount. Before solving this practice worksheet on simple interest students can review the formula and then solved questions on simple interest.

Let's start practicing the different questions given on practice test on simple interest



1. Find the Principal when…..

(a) S.I. = $ 192      Rate = 6% per annum       Time = 4 years
(b) S.I = $ 20         Rate = 2% per annum       Time = 20 month

2. Find the Rate when…..

(a) Principal = $ 350        Time = 21/2 years      S.I. = $ 140
(b) Principal = $ 9600       Time = 3 months       S.I = $ 72

3. Find the Time when…..

(a) Principal = $ 500       Rate = 7.5% p.a       S.I. = $ 150
(b) Principal = $ 700       Rate = 18% p.a.       S.I. = $ 78

4. Find the simple Interest and Amount

(a) Principal = $ 640         Rate = 121/2%       Time = 6 months
(b) Principal = $10000       Rate = 18%           Time = 7 years
