This is a simple program that will teach you how to quickly find simple interest in python

""" Author: Jackson I. Gargar Date: 1/12/2022 Assignment: Task: Simple interest calculator. Simple interest is calculating the amount of interest that is been charged on a sum at a given rate and for a given period of time. You can use a computer program to calculate the simple interest and below is an example of simple codes that will teach you how to calculate the Simple interest that is been charged on a sum at a given rate and for a given period of time Formular: Simple Intrest = P × R × T Simple Interest is calculated using the following formula: SI = P × R × T, where P = Principal, R = Rate of Interest, and T = Time period. and the rate is given in percentage (r%) is written as r/100 To find the sample interest, you will need to use a data type called float. """ # request the user to import the principal P = float(input('Enter the principal amount: ')) # request the user to import the rate R = float(input('Enter the total number of rate: ')) # request the user to import the number of years T = float(input('Enter the time in years: ')) # formula to calculate the interest S_interest = (P * R * T)/100 # this below create a space print() # Print the Principal print('The principal amounts:', P ) # Print the Rate print('The rate is:', R) # Print the Time print('The total number of years:', T) # Print the total Interest print('The Total interest is:', S_interest)
