In this lab, you'll create a simple interest calculator using React. This calculator will take input for the principal amount, annual interest rate, and time in years, and then calculate the simple interest and total amount.

### Objectives

• Implement the simple interest calculation logic that responds to input changes.
• Display the calculated interest and total amount with two decimal places.

### Steps

1. Create Input Fields: You will create three inputs for the principal amount, interest rate, and time with corresponding IDs `#principal`, `#rate`, and `#time`.
2. Create Output Divs: Establish two divs to show the calculated simple interest and total amount with IDs `#simpleInterest` and `#totalAmount`.
3. Default Values: Inputs should be pre-filled with default values when the page loads.
4. Dynamic Calculation: The app should calculate and display the simple interest and total amount dynamically as the user changes the values of the inputs.
5. Styling with Tailwind CSS: Apply Tailwind CSS classes to style your layout and elements. Ensure a centered layout for a clean and responsive design.

#### Styling Guidelines

• You can Utilize Tailwind CSS for styling all elements.

Remember to keep the user interface intuitive and accessible. Test your application thoroughly to ensure that all calculations are correct and that the layout is responsive on different screen sizes.

### Challenges

#### Challenge 1: Create Input Fields

Ensure there are input elements of type `number` with IDs `#principal`, `#rate`, and `#time`. These will capture the principal amount, annual interest rate, and time in years, respectively.

#### Challenge 2: Display Simple Interest

Create an output `div` with the ID `#simpleInterest`. This element will display the calculated simple interest based on the input values.

#### Challenge 3: Set Default Input Values

When the page is rendered, set the default values of the input elements to `1000` for `#principal`, `7` (representing 7%) for `#rate`, and `5` for `#time`.

#### Challenge 4: Update Interest on Input Change

Whenever any input value changes, calculate and update the displayed simple interest. The formula to calculate simple interest is `(principal * rate * time) / 100`. The result should always be displayed with two decimal places, rounded if necessary.

#### Challenge 5: Calculate Total Amount

Include a second output `div` with the ID `#totalAmount` to display the sum of the principal amount and the simple interest. This total should also be displayed with two decimal places and should update whenever any input value changes.
