    yes that is true...with simple interest you earn a constant amount of interest each year with compound int you earn a constant rate....the amount increases each year as the balance increases

    say you have $100 at 5% interest with simple int you earn $5 per year with compound you earn $5 1st year, then (.05*105) = $5.25 the 2nd year and (.05*110.25) = $5.51 the 3rd year ...
