# Python Program for Simple Interest

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:

`Input : P = 10000        R = 5        T = 5Output :2500.0We need to find simple interest on Rs. 10,000 at the rate of 5% for 5 units of time.`

## 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

```

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

### Program for simple interest with Taking input from user

We can calculate the simple interest by taking P,T and R from the user.

## Python3

 `# Python3 program to find simple interest` `#  principal amount, time and` `# rate of interest taken from user.`     `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)` `    `  `    `  `# Driver code` `P ``=` `int``(``input``(``"Enter the principal amount :"``))` `T ``=` `int``(``input``(``"Enter the time period :"``))` `R ``=` `int``(``input``(``"Enter the rate of interest :"``))` `simple_interest(P,T,R)`

Output:

`Input:Enter the principal amount :3000Enter the time period :7Enter the rate of interest :1Output: The simple interest is 210.0`

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