Detailed explanation3: The formula is: Time = 72/r, where r is the rate of interest. The rule of 72 says that it will take about 12 years for an investment to double. The Rule of 72 applies to compounded interest rates and is reasonably accurate for interest rates between 6% and 10%.
Detailed explanation4: Simple Interest Formula Thus, if simple interest is charged at 5% on a $10, 000 loan that is taken out for three years, then the total amount of interest payable by the borrower is calculated as $10, 000 x 0.05 x 3 = $1, 500.
