# Java Program to Calculate Simple Interest

Simple interest is a quick method of calculating the interest charge on a loan. Simple interest is determined by multiplying the daily interest rate by the principal by the number of days that elapse between payments.

Simple interest formula is given by:

`Simple Interest = (P x T x R)/100 `

Where,

• P is the principal amount
• T is the time and
• R is the rate

Examples: –

```Example 1:

Input :  P = 10000
R = 5
T = 5
Output : 2500

Explanation - We need to find simple interest on
Rs. 10, 000 at the rate of 5% for 5
units of time.

Example 2:

Input :  P = 3000
R = 7
T = 1
Output : 210```

Example 1:

## Java

 `// Java program to compute``// simple interest for given principal``// amount, time and rate of interest.``import` `java.io.*;` `class` `GFG {``    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[])``    ``{``        ``// We can change values here for``        ``// different inputs``        ``float` `P = ``1``, R = ``1``, T = ``1``;` `        ``/* Calculate simple interest */``        ``float` `SI = (P * T * R) / ``100``;``        ``System.out.println(``"Simple interest = "` `+ SI);``    ``}``}` `// This code is contributed by Anant Agarwal.`

Output
`Simple interest = 0.01`

Time Complexity: O(1)
Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Example 2:

## Java

 `// Java program to compute``// simple interest for given principal``// amount, time and rate of interest.``import` `java.io.*;` `class` `GFG {``    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[])``    ``{``        ``// We can change values here for``        ``// different inputs``        ``float` `P = ``10000``, R = ``5``, T = ``5``;` `        ``// Calculate simple interest``        ``float` `SI = (P * T * R) / ``100``;``        ``System.out.println(``"Simple interest = "` `+ SI);``    ``}``}`

Output
`Simple interest = 2500.0`

Time Complexity: O(1)
Auxiliary Space: O(1)
