# Important Formulas - Compound Interest - Tricks & Shortcuts

**Compound Interest:**

When compound interest is applied, interest is paid on both the original principal and on earned interest.

Suppose if you make a deposit into a
bank account that pays compounded interest, you will receive interest
payments on the original amount

that you deposited, as well as additional interest payments.

This allows your investment to grow even more than if you were paid only simple interest.

So Amount at the end of 1st year (or Period) will become the principal for the 2nd year (or Period) and

Amount at the end of 2nd year (or Period) becomes the Principal of 3rd year.

**Amount = Principal + Interest**

**A= P (1+r/100) ^n**

A= Amount,

P= Principal,

r= Rate %,

n= no. of years.

So Compound Interest = [P (1+r/100) ^ n - P]

= P [(1+r/100) ^ n – 1]

**Condition:-**

**1.**When interest is compounded annually,

**Amount = P(1+r/100)^n**

**2.**When interest is compounded half yearly,

**Amount = P(1+(r/2)/100)^2n**

**3.**When interest is compounded Quarterly,

**Amount =P(1+(r/4)/100)^4n**

**4.**When interest is compounded annually but time is in fraction, say 3 whole 2/5 year

**Amount = P(1+r/100)^3×(1+(2r/5)/100)**

**5.**When Rates are different for different years, say r1%, r2%, and r3% for 1st, 2nd and 3rd year respectively.

Then,

Amount =

**P(1+r1/100)×(1+r2/100)×(1+r3/100).**
Present worth of Rs. x due n years hence is given by:

**Present Worth = x/(1+r/100)**

**Difference between Compound Interest & Simple interest Concept For Two years**

**CI – SI =P(r/100)^2**

For Three Year

**CI – SI =P(r^2/(100^2 ))×(300+r)/100)**

For Two year
