"Simple Interest Loan with Variable Repayments" : image by Mike DeHaan
We're back with a new self-made image included in my recent Decoded Science article, "How to Calculate Simple Interest".

Understanding how to calculate simple interest is a necessary skill for controlling your personal finances, since it lets you understand the cost of borrowing money. It's also the foundation for calculating compound interest, which is a future topic.

Publishing my "artwork" here first establishes my copyright.

I've also publicized my article in DeHaan Services, where "What is Simple Interest at Decoded Science" adds some Canadian content and recommends a simple reference book about personal finances.

A Simple versus Compound Writing Tip

Today we recycle an older writing tip based on my experience working on this article.

I'd originally considered writing about both simple and compound interest in one article. The main point would be the contrast between the two interest calculations.

Then I realized that each topic could easily fill an article or two. Even this "simple interest" essay had over 1,000 words.

Further topics could examine interest calculations for savings versus loans, or examine the relationship between Euler's "e=2.71828..." and compound interest.

So here is the double writing tip.

Break up your topic into manageable chunks, so you only present one unified concept at a time.

Do think about the range of sub-topics within your topic. Develop a series of articles to cover them.

That's my plan for the interesting topic of interest calculations.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
