QUESTION: 1

### A sum of Rs. 8000 is borrowed at 5% p.a. compound interest and paid back in 3 equal annual instalments. What is the amount of each instalment?

Solution:

Let the repayment annually be X. Then: 8000 + 3 years interest on 8000 (on compound interest of 5%) = X + 2 years interest on X + X + 1 years interest on X + X → X = 2937.67

QUESTION: 2

### A person lent out some money for 1 year at 6% per annum simple interest and after 18 months, he again lent out the same money at a simple interest of 24% per annum. In both the cases, he got Rs. 4704. Which of these could be the amount that was lent out in each case if interest is paid half-yearly?

Solution:

4200 + (4 % of 4200) 3 times = 4200 + 0.04 x 3 x 4200 = 4704.

QUESTION: 3

### Hans Kumar borrows Rs. 7000 at simple interest from the village moneylender. At the end of 3 years, he again borrows Rs. 3000 and closes his account after paying Rs. 4615 as interest after 8 years from the time he made the first borrowing. Find the rate of interest.

Solution:

The interest would be paid on 7000 for 3 years + 10000 for 5 years. @ 6.5% the total interest for 8 years = 1365 + 3250
= Rs. 4615

QUESTION: 4

An amount of Rs. 12820 due 3 years hence, is fully repaid in three annual instalments starting after 1 year. The first instalment is 1/2 the second instalment and the second instalment is 2/3 of the third instalment. If the rate of interest is 10% per annum, find the first instalment.

Solution:

Solve using options. Option (c) fits the situation as: 12820 = 2000 + 2 years interest on 2000 + 4000 +1 years interest on 4000 + 6000 (use 10% compound interest for calculation of interest) → 12820 = 2000 + 420 + 4000 + 400 + 6000.
Thus, option (c) fits the situation perfectly.

He purchases a car, a laptop and a flat for \$15,000, \$13,000 and \$35,000 respectively and puts the remaining money in a bank deposit that pays compound interest @15% per annum. After 2 years, he sells off the three items at 80% of their original price and also withdraws his entire money from the bank by closing the account. What is the total change in his asset?

Solution:

Solution:

9000 + 720 + 720 + 855 + 855 + 855 + 855 + 990
+ 990 + 1080 + 1080 + 1080 + 1080
= 9000 + 720 x 2 + 855 x 4 + 990 x 2 + 1080 x 4 = 20160
