Simple interest = principal * interest rate * time, where "principal" is the starting amount and "rate" is the interest rate at which the money grows per a given period of time (note: express the rate as a decimal in the formula). Time must be expressed in the same units used for time in the Rate.

How much interest will $10,000 earn in 9 months at an annual rate of 6%?

9 months = 3/4 of year;
6% = 6/100=3/50;

$10,000(principal)*3/50(interest rate)*3/4(time)=$450.
