    Handy

    What does the phrase "now, isn't that handy" mean? The context is - the simplest computastion of interest is simple interest (now, isn't that handy).

    Thank you

    Re: Handy

    It means something like 'isn't that convenient'- presumable because simple interest is the simplest to calculate.
