calculating Bank interest rate.
I want to solve interest rate calculation of a Bank.
But i don't know about the algorithm of interest rate calculation for bank.
suppose one customer has a account. ha has 5000US in his account for five month.
so how can i calculate the total interest of 5 months (suppose, monthly interest rate is 0.05 )
Please if any body know about interest calculation of a bank help me...

Algorithm? You should know that before converting it to java code.
You can search from the web about it.
come back here and post the algorithm that you have.freedom exists in the world of ideas

Please confirm this Algo.
For Annual Interest Rates:
totalAmmount = (BasicAmmount) x ((InterestRateAnnually)^(NumberOfYears))
or in another algo it may look like this. But they are the same.
for (int i0; i<NumberOfYears; i++){
basicAmmount = (BasicAmmount) + (BasicAmmount * InterestRateAnnually)}
Java Code:double CurrMoney=5000,TotalMoney; int years = 5; for (int i=0;i<years;i++){ CurrMoney=CurrMoney + (CurrMoney*0.05); } TotalMoney=CurrMoney;
Java Code:double CurrMoney=5000,TotalMoney; int years = 5; TotalMoney=CurrMoney * (1+((0.05)^years));

Much better to avoid loops as much as possible. The second way is much better.

Yes it is. For exponent you can't use ^ sign. It's just for pseudo codes. If you it's not work, why you put it there ;)
Use Math class for those types of processing.

Thanks for the Tip. Here it is now.
Java Code:double CurrMoney=5000,TotalMoney; int years = 5; TotalMoney=CurrMoney * (1+(java.lang.Math.pow((0.05),years)));

Yep it's. But it is not good to import Java packages in runtime. Import them before use, at the top level of any class.

Thanks for the tips Eranga. Here is the New Code. =)
Java Code:package test; import java.lang.Math.*; public class Main { public static void main(String[] args) { double CurrMoney=5000,TotalMoney,years = 5; TotalMoney=CurrMoney * (1+(Math.pow((0.05),years))); System.out.println(TotalMoney); } }
