The interest earned in two years would be 10,000 X 24/100 X 2 = ₹4,800   Monthly interest = 4,800/12 = ₹400 Compound Interest Method I = [P (1 + r/n)^n X t] – P   Here, I = Value of interest  r = Interest rate (in decimal format) n = Number of times the interest gets compounded t = Tenor If you invest ₹20,000 for the same length of tenor, compounding annually, the interest amount would be [20,000 X (1+24/100/1)^1*1] - 20,000 = ₹4,800   Monthly interest = 4,800/12 = ₹400
