Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when we are just told interest, we assume it is yearly. simple interest is different from compound interest. simple interest is always calculated from the initial borrowed amount every year whereas compound is calculated from the updated amount that gets larger with every interest calculation [at the end of every year]. I = PV*i*N I = Interst PV = Present value i = interest rate [yearly] N = amount of years I = 9000(0.12)(3.5) = $3780
