In this article, You will learn about many important concepts such as:

- Compound Interest, etc

**Important Things To Keep In Mind While Solving SI And CI**

- While calculating the Time Period between two dates, the day on which money is Borrowed is not counted for interest but the day on which money is Returned is counted
- Divide by 365 for converting Days into Years
- Amount= Principal + Interest
- Simple Interest= (PxRxT)/100
- Compound Interest= Final Amount – Original Principal
- Compound Interest can be compounded Annually, Half Yearly and Quarterly
