Correct spelling, explaination: interested may be not an intuitive way to spell this word, as in pronunciation e in ter is silent. However interested is a word combined from Latin inter and verb esse (to be) meaning to concern. Therefore it should be written with said e and
intrested is a wrong form.
Definition of interested:

Incorrect spelling, explaination: the correct form interested comes from Latin (inter + esse) and means to concern. This is why we should keep this first e in the word, although it is silent.
Intrested is therefore incorrect and the correct spelling is intrested.
