**MathMate**, Thursday, April 14, 2011 at 2:51pmFor simple interest, and compounded yearly, at the end of one year, the interest is the same, as there is only one period.

interest rate = 1.03

Balance = PRN = 1000*1.03*1 = $1030

Interest = balance - principal = 1030-1000=$30

Principal = P = $1000

Compound interest

Compounded annually:

balance = PR^{n}= 1000*1.03^1 = $1030

Interest = 1030-1000=$30

Compounded quarterly:

n = 12months/3months = 4

R = 1+0.03/4 = 1.0075

balance after 1 year

= PR^n

interest = PR^n-P

Compounded daily:

n=365

R=1+0.03/365

balance after 1 year

= PR^n

interest = PR^n-P
