Principal, P = $1000

Time, t = 2 years

Rate of interest, r = 5.5% = 0.055

--------------------------------------------------

Simple Interest


------------------------------------------------------

Compound Interest

Assuming it is compounded annually.

So, n = 1



So, compound interest = A - P = 1113.025 - 1000 = $113.025 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So,

Compound interest - Simple interest = 113.025 - 110 = $3.025
