Here, you will learn how to calculate the Simple Interest in Java using the Formula ((p * r * t) / 100)) where,

**p**= Principal**r**= Rate of Interest**t**= Time Period

The program takes the user input for Principal, Rate, and Time, calculates the result, and displays the result on the screen.

**Java Program to Calculate the Simple Interest**

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 | //Simple Interest in Java import java.util.Scanner; public class SimpleInterestJava { public static void main(String args[]) { float p, r, t, SI; Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in); System.out.print("Enter the value for Principal: "); p = scan.nextFloat(); System.out.print("Enter the value for Rate of interest: "); r = scan.nextFloat(); System.out.print("Enter the value for Time period: "); t = scan.nextFloat(); scan.close(); SI = (p * r * t) / 100; System.out.print("Simple Interest is: " +SI); } } |

**Output:**

`Enter the value for Principal: 1000 `

Enter the value for Rate of interest: 5

Enter the value for Time period: 2

Simple Interest is: 100.0
