#### Compound Interest Formula:

**‘P = P (1 + r/n)**

**P’** – Compounding Interest.

**P** –
Principal amount.

**r**-Nominal annual interest rate.

**n **– Stands
for Compounding frequency.

**t **– Number of years for which the interest is applied.

#### Simple Steps to Calculate the Compound Interest Manually with Formula:

- Substitute the Principal amount
in ‘
**P’**. - Substitute the nominal interest
rate in ‘
**r’**. - Substitute the compounding
frequency in ‘
**n’**. - Substitute the total number of
years in
**‘t’**. - After substituting the
Principal amount in ‘
**P’**, nominal interest rate in ‘**r’**and compounding frequency in ‘**n’**and total number of years in**‘t’**in the above formula, you can get the**P’**is Periodic Compounding.

#### Total Compound Interest Formula:

**‘P = P + I**

**I = P (1 + r/n) – P**

**P’** – Compounding Interest.

**P** –
Is Principal amount.

**r**-Nominal annual interest rate.

**n **– Stands
for Compounding frequency.

**t **– Number of years for which the interest is applied.
