Question 1 of 10
1. Question
What sum of money at compound interest will amount to Rs. 2249.52 in 3 years if the rate of interest is 3% for the first year, 4% for the second year and 5% for the third year?
Correct
Solution: A= P ( 1 + r1/100) ( 1 + r2/100) ( 1 +r3/100)………
2249.52 = P (1 + 3/100) (1 + 4/100) ( 1 + 5/100)
2249.52 = P (1.03) (1.04) (1.05)
P= 2249.52/ (1.03 * 1.04 * 1.05) = 2000Incorrect
Solution: A= P ( 1 + r1/100) ( 1 + r2/100) ( 1 +r3/100)………
2249.52 = P (1 + 3/100) (1 + 4/100) ( 1 + 5/100)
2249.52 = P (1.03) (1.04) (1.05)
P= 2249.52/ (1.03 * 1.04 * 1.05) = 2000 
Question 2 of 10
2. Question
Mallika deposits Rs. 20000 in a private company at the rate of 16% compound yearly; whereas Meera deposits an equal sum in Punjab national Bank at the rate of 15% compounded half yearly. If both deposit their money for 3/2 yrs only, which deposit earns better interest?
Correct
Solution: Amount after 3/2 yrs in both the cases will be 20000( 1 + 16/100)^3/2 and 20000( 1 + 7.5/100)³
Now move for inequality:
20000( 1 + 16/100)^3/2 = 20000 ( 1 + 7.5/100)³
On raising both sides to the power 2/3
(1 +16/100) = (1 +7.5/100)³
1 + 16/100 = 1 + (7.5/100)² + 2 (7.5/100)
16/100 – 15/100 = 7.5/100 *7 .5/100
1 = 7.5/100 * 7.5
1 = 56.25/100
Clearly Left hand side is greater than Right hand side. Mallika earn better than Meera.Incorrect

20000( 1 + 16/100)^3/2 = 20000 ( 1 + 7.5/100)³
On raising both sides to the power 2/3

1 + 16/100 = 1 + (7.5/100)² + 2 (7.5/100)
16/100 – 15/100 = 7.5/100 *7 .5/100
1 = 7.5/100 * 7.5
1 = 56.25/100
Clearly Left hand side is greater than Right hand side. Mallika earn better than Meera. 
Question 3 of 10
3. Question
Divide Rs. 3903 between A and B so that A’s share at the end of 7 yrs may equal B’s share at the end of 9 yrs, compound interest being at 4%. What is the share of B?
Correct
Solution: A’s share at present= ( 1 + 4/100) ^ 7
B’s share at present= ( 1 +4/100)^9
A’s share at present/ B’s share at present= (1+ 4/100)²
= (26/25)² = 676 / 625
Dividing Rs. 3903 in the ratio 676: 625
A’s share = 676 / (676 + 625) * 3903 = Rs. 2028
B’s share= 3903 – 2028 = 1875Incorrect
Solution: A’s share at present= ( 1 + 4/100) ^ 7
B’s share at present= ( 1 +4/100)^9
A’s share at present/ B’s share at present= (1+ 4/100)²
= (26/25)² = 676 / 625
Dividing Rs. 3903 in the ratio 676: 625
A’s share = 676 / (676 + 625) * 3903 = Rs. 2028
B’s share= 3903 – 2028 = 1875 
Question 4 of 10
4. Question
A man lends Rs. 10000 in four parts. If he gets 8% on Rs. 2000, 7 and ½% on Rs. 4000 and 8 and ½% on Rs. 1400. What % must he get for the remainder if the average interest is 8.13%?
Correct
Solution: Total interest= 8.13% of 10000= Rs. 813
Remainder money= 10000 – (2000 + 4000 + 1400)
= 2600
Then, 8% of 2000 + 7.5% of 4000 + 8.5% of 1400 + x% of 2600= 813
160 + 300+ 119 + 26x= 813
X= 234/26 = 9%Incorrect
Solution: Total interest= 8.13% of 10000= Rs. 813
Remainder money= 10000 – (2000 + 4000 + 1400)
= 2600
Then, 8% of 2000 + 7.5% of 4000 + 8.5% of 1400 + x% of 2600= 813
160 + 300+ 119 + 26x= 813
X= 234/26 = 9% 
Question 5 of 10
5. Question
The rate of interest on a sum of money is 4% per annum for the first 2 yrs, 6% per annum for the next 4 yrs and 8% per annum for the period beyond 6 yrs. If the simple interest accrued by the sum for a total period of 9 yrs is Rs. 1120, what is the sum?
Correct
Solution: Sum= Interest * 100/ r1t1 + r2t2 + r3t3 + ……
= 1120 * 100/ 4*2 + 6*4 + 8*3
= 2000Incorrect
Solution: Sum= Interest * 100/ r1t1 + r2t2 + r3t3 + ……
= 1120 * 100/ 4*2 + 6*4 + 8*3
= 2000 
Question 6 of 10
6. Question
Suresh borrows Rs. 7000 from a bank at simple interest. After 3 yrs he paid Rs. 3000 to the bank and at the end of 5 yrs from the date of borrowing he paid Rs. 5450 to the bank to settle the account. Find the rate of interest.
Correct
Solution: Any sum that is paid back to the bank before the last installment is deduced from the principal and not from the interest.
Total interest= Interest on Rs. 7000 for 3 yrs + Interest on (Rs. 7000 – Rs. 3000) = Rs. 4000 for 2yrs
(5450+30007000) = 7000 * 3 * r/100 + 4000 * 2* r/100
1450 = 210r + 80r
R= 1450/290 = 5%Incorrect
Solution: Any sum that is paid back to the bank before the last installment is deduced from the principal and not from the interest.
Total interest= Interest on Rs. 7000 for 3 yrs + Interest on (Rs. 7000 – Rs. 3000) = Rs. 4000 for 2yrs
(5450+30007000) = 7000 * 3 * r/100 + 4000 * 2* r/100
1450 = 210r + 80r
R= 1450/290 = 5% 
Question 7 of 10
7. Question
Some amount out of Rs. 7000 was lent at 6% per annum and the remaining at 4% per annum. If the total simple interest from both the fractions in 5 yrs was Rs. 1600, find the sum lent at 6 % per annum.
Correct
Solution: x% was lent at 6% per annum
X * 6* 5/100 + (7000 –x) * 4 *5 / 100= 1600
3x/10 + 7000 – x/5 = 1600
X= 16000 – 14000 = 2000Incorrect
Solution: x% was lent at 6% per annum
X * 6* 5/100 + (7000 –x) * 4 *5 / 100= 1600
3x/10 + 7000 – x/5 = 1600
X= 16000 – 14000 = 2000 
Question 8 of 10
8. Question
If the difference between the simple interest and the compound interest on a certain sum of money for 3 yrs at 5% per annum is Rs. 122. Find the sum. What is the simple interest on the same principal at the rate of 10% for 5 yrs?
Correct
Solution: Sum= Difference * (100)³/ r² (300 + r)
= 122 * 100 * 100 * 100/ 25 *305
= 16000
Simple interest= 16000 * 10 * 5/100
= 8000Incorrect
Solution: Sum= Difference * (100)³/ r² (300 + r)
= 122 * 100 * 100 * 100/ 25 *305
= 16000
Simple interest= 16000 * 10 * 5/100
= 8000 
Question 9 of 10
9. Question
The simple interest on a certain sum of money for 4 yrs at 4% per annum exceeds the compound interest on the same sum for 3 yrs at 5% per annum by Rs. 57. Find the sum.
Correct
Solution: x * 4 * 4/100 – 57 = x [(1 + 5/100)³ – 1]
4x/25 – 57 = x (1261/8000)
X [4/25 – 1261/8000] = 57
X [12801261/8000] = 57
X= 57 * 8000/19
X= 24000Incorrect
Solution: x * 4 * 4/100 – 57 = x [(1 + 5/100)³ – 1]
4x/25 – 57 = x (1261/8000)
X [4/25 – 1261/8000] = 57
X [12801261/8000] = 57
X= 57 * 8000/19
X= 24000 
Question 10 of 10
10. Question
A man borrows Rs. 3000 at 10% compound rate of interest. At the end of each year he pays back Rs. 1000. How much amount should he pay at the end of the third yr to clear all his dues?
Correct
Solution:
Principal at the beginning of the 2nd yr=
3000(1 + 10/100) – 1000
= 3300 – 1000
= 2300
Principal at the beginning of the third yr=
2300 (1 + 10/100) – 1000
= 1530
At the end of the third yr he should pay=
1530 (1 +10/100)
= 1683Incorrect
Solution:
Principal at the beginning of the 2nd yr=
3000(1 + 10/100) – 1000
= 3300 – 1000
= 2300
Principal at the beginning of the third yr=
2300 (1 + 10/100) – 1000
= 1530
At the end of the third yr he should pay=
1530 (1 +10/100)
= 1683
