### A person borrows Rs 5000 for 2 years at 4% p.a. simple interest. He immediately lends it to another person at 6.25% p.a. for 2 years. Find his gain in the transaction per year.

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 1

Gain in 2 years
= Rs [(5000 × 25/4 × 2/100)
– {(5000 × 4 × 2)/100}]
= Rs (6 25 – 400)
= Rs 225
Gain in 1 year = Rs 225/2 =112.50

Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 5

An automobile financier claims to be lending money at simple interest, but he includes the interest every six months for calculating the principal. If he is charging an interest of 10%, the effective rate of interest becomes:

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 5

Let the sum be Rs 100. Then,
S.I. for first 6 months

S.I. for last 6 months

So, amount at the end of 1 year
= Rs (100 + 5 + 5.25) = Rs 110.25
Effective rate = (110.25 – 100) = 10.25%

Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 6

A lent Rs 5000 to B for 2 years and Rs 3000 to C for 4 years on simple interest at the same rate of interest and received Rs 2200 in all from both of them as interest. The rate of interest per annum is:

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 6

Let the rate be R% p.a.
Then,

⇒ 100R + 120R = 2200
⇒ R = 2200/220
Rate = 10%.

Principal

Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 9

A sum of money amounts to Rs 9800 after 5 years and Rs 12005 after 8 years at the same rate of simple interest. The rate of interest per annum is:

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 9

S.I. for 3 years = Rs (12005 – 9800)
= Rs 2205

Principal = Rs (9800 – 3675) = Rs 6125
Hence, rate = (100 × 3675)/(6125 × 5) = 12%

Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 10

A sum of money at simple interest amounts to Rs 815 in 3 years and to ` 854 in 4 years. The sum is:

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 10

S.I. for 1 year = Rs (854 – 815) = Rs 39
S.I. for 3 years = Rs (39 × 3) = Rs 117
∴ Principal = Rs (815 – 117) = Rs 698

Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 11

Mr. Thomas invested an amount of Rs 13,900 divided in two different schemes A and B at the simple interest rate of 14% p.a. and 11% p.a. respectively. If the total amount of simple interest earned in 2 years be ` 3508, what was the amount invested in Scheme B?

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 11

Let the sum invested in Scheme A be Rs x and that in Scheme B be Rs (13900 – x).
Then,

= 3508
⇒ 28x – 22x = 350800 – (13900 × 22)
⇒ 6x = 45000
⇒ x = 7500
So, sum invested in Scheme B
= Rs (13900 – 7500) = Rs 6400

⇒ 12R2 = 432
⇒ R2 = 36
⇒ R = 6

Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 15

Anita borrowed Rs 800 for 2 years at the rate of 12% per annum. Find the interest. Also find the amount paid by her.

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 15

Principal = ‘P’ = Rs 800, Rate = R
= 12% = 0.12, Time= ‘T’ = 2 years.
Interest: I = P × R × T I = 800 × 0.12 × 2
I = 192
Amount: A = P + I
A = 800 + 192 = Rs 992

Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 16

Deepak takes a loan of Rs 8,000 to buy a used truck at the rate of 9 % simple interest. Calculate the annual interest to be paid for the loan amount.

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 16

From the details given in the problem
Principal = P = Rs 8,000 and R = 9 %
or 0.09 expressed as a decimal.
As the annual interest is to be calculated, the time period T =1.
Plugging these values in the simple interest formula, I = P × T × R
= 8,000 × 1 × 0.09
= 720.00
Annual interest to be paid = Rs 720

Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 17

Steve invested \$ 10,000 in a savings bank account that earned 2% simple interest. Find the interest earned if the amount was kept in the bank for 4 years.

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 17

Principal P = \$ 10,000, Time Period T = 4
years and Rate of Interest = 2% = 0.02
Plugging these values in the simple
Interest formula,
I = P × T × R
= 10,000 × 4 × 0.02
= \$ 800
Interest earned for the investment = \$ 800

Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 18

Ryan bought \$ 15,000 from a bank to buy a car at 10% simple interest. If he paid \$ 9,000 as interest while clearing the loan, find the time for which the loan was given.

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 18

Principal = \$ 15,000, Rate of Interest R = 10% = 0.10 and the Interest paid = I = \$ 9,000. And T is to be found.
T = I/(PR)
= 9000/(15,000 × 0.10)
= 6 years.
The loan was given for 6 years.

Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 19

In how much time will the simple interest on \$3,500 at the rate of 9% p.a be the same as simple interest on \$4,000 at 10.5% p.a for 4 years?

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 19

S.I on \$4,000 at rate 10.5% = 10.5/100
= 0.105 for 4 years
S.I  = (P × R × T) /100
= 4000 × 0.105 × 4
S.I = \$ 1,680
The interest of \$1,680 is the same as that on \$3,500 at 9% p.a. for supposed years.
Time = t = (S.I × 100)/(P × R )
= (1680 × 100)/ (3500 × 9)
Time = t = 5.33 years.

Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 20

In what time will Rs 8500 amount to Rs 15767.50 at 4.5% per annum?

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Simple Interest - 1 - Question 20

Here interest = Rs 15767.50 – 8500   =Rs 7267.50
Therefore t =  (7267.50 × 100)/(8500 ×4.5) = 19 years
