Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 2

### The compound interest accrued on an amount of the end of two years @ 12 p.c.p.a. is Rs. 2862/- What is the amount?

Detailed Solution for Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 2

The correct answer is A as
CI = P((1+R/100)^n - 1)
2862 = P(( 1+12/100)^2-1)
2862 = P((1+144/10000 + 24/100) -1)
2862 = P (144/10000+24/100)
2862 = P (2544/10000)
P = 11,250

Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 9

A sum was put at simple interest at a certain rate for 5 years. had it been put at 5% higher rate, it would have fetched Rs. 500 more. What is the sum?

Detailed Solution for Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 9

let principle be p , rate be r , si be x . Also t = 5 yrs.
so , x = (p*r*5)/100
x = 5pr/100 _____(1)
If rate = r+5 , si = x+500 then
x+500 = (p*(r+5)*5)/100
x+500 = 5p(r+5)/100
5pr/100+500 = (5pr+25p)/100 (using eq(1))
(5pr+50000)/100 = (5pr+25p)/100
5pr+50000 = 5pr+25p
50000 = 25p
p = 2000

Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 10

What is the difference between the compound interest and the simple interest for the sum Rs. 16000 at 5% p.a. for 2 years?

Detailed Solution for Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 10

Option ( A) 40 is the correct  answer.

Explanation:- Given,  P  = 16000₹

R = 5%  ,  T = 2 years

A = P (1 + R /100) ^n

=  16000 * ( 1+5/100) ^2

=  16000 *  ( 105 / 100) ^2

A =    17,640₹

C. I =  A- P

=  17,640 - 16,000

=   1,640

S. I  =  PTR / 100

=  16000 * 2 * 5/ 100

=  1,600

Difference CI - SI ;

=   1640 - 1600

=     40 ₹

Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 11

A sum of money doubles  itself in 2 years at a simple interest. In how many years will it multiply four times?

Detailed Solution for Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 11

As stated in question Money doubles in two years, i.e. in 2 years Simple Interest = 2x.
So, simple interest in 3 years will be 3x. Total Sum = 4x
After 3 years the sum will be 4 times the initial money.

Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 12

A sum of money triples itself in 3 years at a simple interest. In how many years will it multiply five times?

Detailed Solution for Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 12

The correct option is Option B.

For 3 yrs

SI = P*R*T/100

3P-P = P*R*3/100

2P = 3P*R/100

R = 200/3

Money will become 5 times

5P - P = (P*200/3*T)/100

4P = (2/3P)T

T = 6

Money will become five times in 6 years

Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 13

An amount of money grows upto Rs. 4000 in 2 years and up to Rs. 8000 in 3 years on compound interest. What is the sum?

Detailed Solution for Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 14

Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 15

What is the time period for which Rs. 8000 amounts to Rs. 12000 at 20% p.a. of simple interest?

Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 16

What is the rate of simple interest at which Rs. 14,000 gives interest of Rs. 1960 in two years?

Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 17

What is the sum of amount which gives Rs. 6300 as interest @ 7% per annum of simple interest in 7*1/2years?

Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 18

If the rate of simple interest is 12% per annum, the amount that would fetch interest of Rs. 6000 per annum is:

Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 19

A sum was put at simple interest at a certain rate for 2 years. Had it been put at 4% higher rate, it would have fetched Rs. 112 more. The sum is:

Detailed Solution for Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 19

The correct answer is C as let principle be p , rate be r , si be x . Also t = 2yrs.
so , x = (p*r*2)/100
x = 2pr/100 _____(1)
If rate = r+4 , si = x+112 then
x+112 = (p*(r+4)*2)/100
x+112 = 2p(r+4)/100
2pr/100+112 = (2pr+8p)/100 (using eq(1))
(2pr+11200)/100 = (2pr+8p)/100
2pr+11200 = 2pr+8p
11200 = 8p
p = 1400
Correct ans is b) 1400

Test: Simple Interest & Compound Interest- 2 - Question 20
