# What Simple Interest Rate Will Susan

Assuming you would like a blog post on simple interest rates:

When most people think of interest they think of the interest that accrues on loans. Banks charge interest on loans because they are taking on the risk of not being repaid and this is how they make money. The amount of interest that a bank charges depends on a number of factors including the type of loan the amount of money being borrowed and the length of the loan.

For loans there are two main types of interest: simple and compound. Simple interest is the interest that accrues on a loan without any additional fees or charges. Compound interest is the interest that accrues on a loan plus any additional fees or charges.

The main difference between simple and compound interest is that compound interest accrues more quickly than simple interest. This is because the additional fees and charges increase the amount of money that the borrower owes and this leads to a higher interest rate.

Compound interest is generally charged on loans with a shorter term such as credit cards or car loans. Simple interest is generally charged on loans with a longer term such as mortgages or student loans.

The amount of interest that a borrower pays depends on the simple interest rate. The simple interest rate is the interest rate that is charged without any additional fees or charges. The simple interest rate is generally lower than the compound interest rate.

For example let’s say that a borrower takes out a loan for \$100 with a simple interest rate of 10%. The borrower will owe \$110 at the end of the loan term. If the borrower takes out a loan for \$100 with a compound interest rate of 10% the borrower will owe \$121 at the end of the loan term.

The simple interest rate is the interest rate that is charged without any additional fees or charges. The simple interest rate is generally lower than the compound interest rate. This is why it is important to understand the difference between simple and compound interest when taking out a loan.
