By using this simple trick on Simple Interest problems, we can able to solve any to any problem in this topic and get answers very quickly than using normal methods.

### Simple Interest shortcut Trick – Speed Maths Tricks

While solving simple interest problems by using percentage method,** Always assume** principle

**P =**100%,

Simple Interest

**(SI**) = (Time × Rate) %.

Total Amount

**(A)**= P + SI = 100% + SI%.

**Steps to Solve:**- We have to analyze the in terms of above process and assume principle amount as 100%.
- If 100% is this much then x% is how much , like this we have to analyze and solve it by using cross multiplying

100% = …

x% = ?
