Equity is the value of the business left to its owners after the business has paid all liabilities. Sometimes, there are different classes of ownership units, such as common stock and preferred stock. Total equity is what is left over after you subtract the value of all the liabilities of a company from the value of all of its assets. Equity is reported on a company's balance sheet.
In the real world, simple interest is rarely used. When you deposit money into an interest-bearing account, or take out a line of credit, the interest that accumulates is added to the principal, and the next interest calculation is done on both the principal and the interest.
