Some Definitions :

Principal : Money borrowed.

Example : 5% = 5/100 = 0.05

Amount : The total money which the borrower pays back to the lender at the end of the specified period is called the amount.

Time : Time in years of the loan.

The simple-interest formula is often abbreviated in this form:
 Interest = P x R x T

If the time is given in month then divide the given formula by 12.

Interest = ( P x R x T ) / 12
If the time is given in days then divide the given formula by 365.
