The Rule of 72 formula can also be used as a quick and simplified way to determine how many years it will take for you to lose 50% of the value of your savings as a result of inflation, assuming that the annual interest rate your bank pays you is small enough to neglect.

The Rule of 72 formula is defined as:

\(T\) \(=\) \(\dfrac{72}{Annual\text{ }Inflation\text{ }Rate}\)

\(T\): The time which it will take for your investment to double

\(Annual\text{ }Inflation\text{ }Rate\): How much do you expect the average annual inflation rate to be?

The time is measured in: \(years\)
