#### Storyboard Text

• Hi son. Today we will be setting up a savings account for you. Now you will have a safe place to store your money rather than just leaving cash lying around the house.﻿
• Hey Dad. What even is a savings account?﻿
• That's a very good question.﻿
• ﻿A savings account is a safe place to keep your money. One of the advantages to having one is that you can make interest from the bank.
• Interest? What's that?
• Interest is payment from the bank for lending them your money while it is in the savings account. You can calculate interest by using the formula A=P(1+rt).﻿
• What do all of those variables stand for?﻿
• A stands for the total amount (principal+interest). P stands for the principal amount, I stands for interest amount, r stands for interest rate per year, and t stands for time period. ﻿
• Can you show me an example?﻿
• Say you have \$10,000 in your account. If you leave it in the account for 5 years and the interest rate is 4%, you will end up with \$12,00 in your account. 10,000(1+(0.04*5))=12,000.﻿
• Thanks Dad. Now I understand how interest works. Let's go set up this account!﻿
