QUESTION: 3

### In what time will Rs. 72 become Rs. 81 at 25/4% per annum simple interest?​

Solution:

Interest = Rs. (81-72) = Rs. 9

Solution: QUESTION: 5

In what time Rs. 2600 amount to Rs. 3055 at the rate of 3 ½ % per annum.

Solution:

The correct option is B.
Principal amount=2600
Rate=3 1/2%pa=7/2
Time = T
SI=3055-2600=455
SI=PRT/100
455=2600×7×T/100×2,
T=5yrs.

QUESTION: 9

The simple Interest on a certain sum of money at the rate of 4% p.a. for 5 years is Rs. 1680. At what rate of interest the same amount of interest can be received on the same sum after 4 years ?

Solution:

5%
S.I. = 1680, R = 4% T = 5 years
Principal = (100 *1680)/ (5*4) = 8400
So P = 8400
Rate = (100 *1680)/ (8400 * 4) = 5%

Solution:

The correct option is D as Let the part lent at 4% be x then , rest will be (5800-x) .
(x*4*1)/100 + { (5800-x)*6*1 } / 100 = 292
4x/100 + { 34800 - 6x }/100 = 292
4x + 34800 - 6x = 29200
2x = 5600
x = 2800 so , d is correct option.

QUESTION: 13

A man buys a land and gives for it 20 times the annual rent. Find the rate of Interest he gets for his money.

Solution:

The correct is D as
n=9 months
=3 quaterly
A=125000×(1+2/100)3^=125000×(1+2/100)^3
=125000×51/50×51/50×51/50=125000×51/50×51/50×51/50
=Rs.132651
CI=A−P
=132651−125000

Solution:

Let the sum borrowed be x.

Then,(x*2*6)/100 + (x*9*3)/100 + (x*14*4)/100 = 11400

⇒ (3x/25 + 27x/100 + 14x / 25) = 11400
