Don't forget the Rule of 72 for quick mental calculations.

From Betterexplained.com:

The Rule of 72 is a great mental math shortcut to estimate the effect of any growth rate, from quick financial calculations to population estimates. Here’s the formula:

Years to double = 72 / Interest Rate

Andy, good rule of thumb! Thanks for calling it out!

For example 72 / 5 years = 14.4, very close to the actual number (14.87)
