Simple interest formula :

 

Interest earned  =  Principal * Interest Rate * Time (in years)

 

So......for the first one

 

Interest earned =  1450 * (.09)  * (5)  =  $652.50

 

 

The second one is a little trickier....we have...

 

10   =  250 *  .04  * Time             simplify

 

10  =  10  * Time                       divide both sides by 10

 

1  =  Time   

 

So  ...   1  year
