Interest: Simple Interest

Correct. [[Snippet]] In order to double the principal amount, Sally needs to earn $450 in interest. Based on this, the time needed to double the money can be calculated as follows: >$$\text{Simple interest} = \text{Principal} \times \text{Interest rate} \times \text{Time}$$ >$$\displaystyle \$450 = \$450 \times 0.1 \times \text{Time}$$ >$$ 450 = 45 \times \text{Time}$$ >$$\displaystyle \text{Time} = \frac{450}{ 45}$$ >$$\text{Time}= 10 \text{ years}$$
