Simple interest is the most basic interest rate structure which takes the loan principal multiplied by the interest rate, to obtain the interest cost.

Simple interest is the interest rate that everyone intuitively understands and often assume it’s what lenders are charging borrowers at.
It’s a huge irony that very few (or none) of the loans available from the big banks are structured with simple interest rates.
