INTEREST   利子、利息


  • Interest is the cost of borrowing money or the profit you receive by lending money, usually expressed as a percentage of the amount borrowed or lent.

    Compound interest is interest earned on both the original amount invested and on the interest that has already been earned.
  • interest とは、借りたお金に対して支払う金銭、あるいは、お金を貸すことによって得られる利益のことです。通常 interest は、貸したり借りたりした金額の一定の割合として表されます。

    compound interest とは、元金とすでに得た利子の総額に対して新たに支払われる利子、つまり複利のことです。
