Simple Interest Worksheet



Practicing questions on simple interest worksheet help the children to calculate simple interest (S.I.) and amount (A). We will recapitulate the same and know more about it and practice more questions given in the worksheet on simple interest.



While solving the questions on simple interest worksheet we need to remember;
the formula for calculating simple interest (S.I.) = (P × R × T)/100 and, formula for calculating amount (A) = P + I

1. Find the simple interest and amount in each of the following:

(a) P = $1800       R = 5%        T = 1 year
(b) P = $2600       R = 12%       T = 3 years
(c) P = $3125       R = 15%       T = 73 days
(d) P = $5660       R = 11%       T = 9 months
(e) P = $180        R = 3%         T = 11/4 year
