The Compound Interest is the addition of interest to the principal sum of a loan or deposit, or in other words, interest on interest. In simple words, we can say that when you get interest on your invested money and interest on that money. Simple interest means when you get interest on your principal amount only. But the compound interest is the interest on the principal sum and the interest earned on it.

The formula of compound interest is:

A = {1 + R/100} ᵀ

Here T = Time

A = Amount

P = Principal

R = Rate of Interest

A = Amount = Principal + Compound Interest
