The Rule of 72 Calculator
The rule of 72 says that to find the number of years required to double your investment at a given interest rate, you simply divide the interest rate into 72.
For example, if you want to know how long it will take to double your money at eighteen percent interest, divide 18 into 72 and get 4 years.
