Annual Percentage Rate is the interest rate charged on the amount borrowed and it replicates the annual cost of borrowing money.

#### Formula:

Periodic Rate = (1 + APY)1/n - 1 APR = Periodic Rate x n
###### Where,
n = Number of Periods APY = Annual Percentage Yield APR = Annual Percentage Rate

#### Example :

##### Given :

APY = 7% = 0.07 Number of Period (n) = 12 months

##### Solution :

Periodic Rate = (1 + APY)1/n - 1 = (1 + 0.07)1/12 -1 = 1.005654145 -1 = 0.005654145 APR = Periodic Rate x n = 0.005654145 x 12 = 0.06784974 = 6.785 %

##### Result :

Annual Percentage Rate is 6.785 %
