However, students receiving a grade of A- or above will
exceptionally be allowed to proceed to Math1014.
I Math1012/1014:A standard sequence of single variable
calculus. Students without the HKDSE Math Extended
Module M1 or M2, or a grade of below level 3, should take
this sequence.

Simple Interest

Definition
Let r be the (annual) interest rate. Suppose we invest/borrow a
sum of money P through a certain financial instrument, then after
t years, the amount of interest I received/owed is given by

I = Prt

## A = P + I = P + Prt = P(1 + rt)

Remark
Interest rate is the percentage of principal that is paid over a
certain period of time (usually one year)

I
r= 100%,
Pt
where P is the principal, t is the time in years and I the interest
for t year.
I If the interest earn for a deposit of \$100 after one year is \$5,
then the rate is 5%.

## Example 3 Treasure Bills

Example
T-bills (Treasury bill) are one of the instruments the U.S. Treasury
Department uses to finance the public debt. If you buy a 180-day
T-bill with a maturity value of \$10000 for \$9800, what annual
simple interest rate you will earn?

Remark
For the convenience of calculation, here one year is defined to be
360 days.

## Example 4 Interest Rate Earned on an Investment

Example
You sell an old car to our friend and accept a 270-day note for
\$3500 at 10% simple interest rate as payment. (Both principal and
interest will be paid at the end of 270 days.) Sixty days later you
find that you need the money and sell the note to a third party for
\$3550. What annual interest rate will the third party receive for
the investment?

## Example 4 Interest Rate Earned on an Investment

Solution
The future value of the 270-day note
 
270
3500 1 + 0.1 = \$3762.5
360

The third party paid \$3550 and then after 270 60 = 210 days,
he/she will obtain \$3762.5.

Let r be the annual interest rate for this investment. Then we have
 
210
3762.5 = 3550 1 + r
360

r = 0.1026 = 10.26%

## Example 5 Stock Investments (Optional)

Example
The brokerage firm charge commissions based on the amount of
the trade. The following table shows the commission schedule for
one of these firms.
Transaction Size Commission
\$0-\$2499 \$29+1.6% of principal
\$2500-\$9999 \$49+0.8% of principal
\$10000+ \$99+0.3% of principal

## An investor purchases 50 shares of a stock at \$47.52 per share.

After 200 days, the investor sells the stock for \$52.19 per share.
Using the above commission schedule, find the annual rate of
interest earned by this investment.

## The values of 50 shares of stocks: 50 47.52 = \$2376

The commission for buying those 50 shares of stocks:

## Therefore, the total amount of investment is

2376 + 67.02 = \$2443.02.

Summary

1. Interest is the fee paid for the use of a sum of money, called
the principal. Simple interest is given by

I = Prt

## 2. If a principal P (present value) is borrowed, the the amount A

(future value) is the total of the principal and the interest:

A = P + I.

## If the interest is simple, then

A = P(1 + rt)
