An elite private college receives large donations from successful alumni. The account that holds these donations now has $955$ million USD.We have to calculate,how much would the account earn in 1 year of simple interest at a rate of $2.33\%$? To calculate interest we will use the equation,

\begin{align*} I=Ptr \end{align*}

where is $P$ principal, $r$ interest rate and $t$ number of years, so we get,

\begin{align*} I=955 000 000\cdot 0.0233\cdot 1=21965000\,\,\text{USD} \end{align*}
