# Python Program for simple interest

Simple interest formula is given by:
Simple Interest = (P x T x R)/100
Where,
P is the principle amount
T is the time and
R is the rate

Examples:

```EXAMPLE1:
Input : P = 10000
R = 5
T = 5
Output :2500
We need to find simple interest on
Rs. 10,000 at the rate of 5% for 5
units of time.

EXAMPLE2:
Input : P = 3000
R = 7
T = 1
Output :210
```

## Python3

 `# Python3 program to find simple interest ` `# for given principal amount, time and ` `# rate of interest. ` ` `  ` `  `def` `simple_interest(p,t,r): ` `    ``print``(``'The principal is'``, p) ` `    ``print``(``'The time period is'``, t) ` `    ``print``(``'The rate of interest is'``,r) ` `     `  `    ``si ``=` `(p ``*` `t ``*` `r)``/``100` `     `  `    ``print``(``'The Simple Interest is'``, si) ` `    ``return` `si ` `     `  `# Driver code ` `simple_interest(``8``, ``6``, ``8``) `

Output:

```The principal is 8
The time period is 6
The rate of interest is 8
The Simple Interest is 3.84
```
