## How to Calculate Compound Interest?

Groww uses a globally standardized method to determine the total compound interest accrued. The formula is –

A = P (1 + r/n) ^ nt

The variables in the formula are the following.

 P Principal Amount A Compound interest R/r Rate of interest N/n Number of times interest compounds in a year T/t Number of years

For example, if you invest Rs. 50,000 with an annual interest rate of 10% for 5 years, the returns for the first year will be 50,000 x 10/100 or Rs. 5,000.

For the second year, the interest will be calculated on Rs. 50,000 + Rs. 5000 or Rs. 55,000. The interest will be Rs. 5550.

For the third year, the amount will stand at Rs 6055 and so on.

Obviously, it is difficult to calculate these amounts manually. That is why you need a compound interest calculator in India to make the task easier.
