Answer:

Given P = Rs.7,300, R = 10%

Time = May + June + July + Aug + Sept. + Oct.

= 16 + 30 + 31 + 31 + 30 + 8 = l46days.

Question 2.

Answer:

Question 3.

In how many years will a sum of money double itself at 18.75% p.a simple interest.

Answer:

Let the principal be Rs. P, then amount = Rs. 2P

∴ SI = Amount – PrincipIe = Rs. 2P – P = P; R = 18.75% p.a

Question 4.

Kumar borrowed some many at the rate of 6% p.a for the first two years, at the rate of 9% p.a. for the next three years, and at the rate of 14% p.a. for the period beyond live years. If he pays a total interest of Rs. 11,400 at the end of nine years, how much money did he borrow.

Compound Interest

Question 1.

Find the CI amount and Cl on Rs. 12,000 for 3 years at 10% p.a. compounded annually.

Answer:

P = 12,000, n = 3,R = 10%p.a

We have amount A

∴ C.I = A.P = 15972 – 12000 = Rs. 3972

Question 2.

At what percent p.a. will a sum of Rs. 5,000 become Rs. 8,000 if the loan given for 4 years attract compound interest?

Answer:

Given A = Rs. 8000, P = Rs. 5000, n = 4, R = ?

Question 3.

Compute the CI. on Rs. 12,000 for 2 years at 20% p.a. when compounded half yearly.

Answer:

Given P = 12,000, R = 20% p.a. and n = 2

= 12000 = 12000 (1.4641) = 17569.20

A = Rs. 17,569.20

∴ Compound Interest = A – P = 17,569.20 – 12,000 = Rs. 5,569.20

Question 4.

A sum of money doubles itself at compound an Interest in 15 years. In how many years will it become eight times.
