Following the simple interest formula, #I=P*R*T#.

We're trying to find the total money after three years, so we're solving for #I#.

We have our #P#, the staring amount, as $1200. We have our #R#, rate per year, at #3%#, or #.03#. We then have our #T# in years, 5.

We would then plug our numbers into the equation.

#I=1200*.03*5#. Plug the multiplication into a calculator, and you'd get $180.
