Akbars’ share should be such that at 4% p.a. compound interest it should become equal to Amar’s share in 2 years. Checking thorugh the options it is clear that option (a) fits perfectly as 1875 would become 2028 in 2 years @4% p.a. compound interest.

Test: SI & CI- 2 - Question 5

A sum of Rs. 600 amounts to Rs. 720 in 4 years at Simple Interest. What will it amount to if the rate of interest is increased by 2%?

Detailed Solution for Test: SI & CI- 2 - Question 7

600 becomes 720 in 4 years SI —> SI per year = Rs. 30 and hence the SI rate is 5%.
At 7% rate of interest the value of 600 would become 768 in 4 years. (600 + 28% of 600)

Test: SI & CI- 2 - Question 8

A sum of money invested at simple interest triples itself in 8 years at simple interest. Find in how many years will it become 8 times itself at the same rate?

In 8 years, the interest earned = 200% Thus, per year interest rate = 200/8 = 25% To become 8 times we need a 700% increase 700/25 = 28 years.

Test: SI & CI- 2 - Question 9

If Rs. 1100 is obtained after lending out Rs. x at 5% per annum for 2 years and Rs. 1800 is obtained after lending out Rs. y at 10% per annum for 2 years, find x + y.

Detailed Solution for Test: SI & CI- 2 - Question 9

x = Rs. 1000 (As 1000 @ 5% for 2 years = 1100).
Similarly y = Rs. 1500. x +y = 2500.
