1. Find the compound interest when principal = Rs 3000, rate = 5% per annum and time = 2 years.
Solution:
Given details are,
Principal (p) = Rs 3000
Rate (r) = 5%
Time = 2years
Interest for the first year = (3000×5×1)/100 = 150
Amount at the end of first year = Rs 3000 + 300 = Rs 3150
Principal interest for the second year = (3150×5×1)/100 = 157.5
Amount at the end of second year = Rs 3150 + 157.5 = Rs 3307.5
∴ Compound Interest = Rs 3307.5 – Rs 3000 = Rs 307.5
2. What will be the compound interest on Rs. 4000 in two years when rate of interest is 5% per annum?
Solution:
Given details are,
Principal (p) = Rs 4000

Rate (r) = 18 %
Time = 2 years
By using the formula,
Interest amount Mewa lal has to pay,
By using the formula,
Simple interest = P×T×R/100
= (20000×18×2)/100 = 7200
Interest amount Rampal has to pay to Mewa lal,
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100) n
= 20000 (1 + 18/100)2
= 20000 (118/100)2
= Rs 27848 – 20000 (principal amount)
= Rs 7848
∴ Mewa lal gain = Rs (7848 – 7200) = Rs 648

A = P (1 + R/100) n
= 8000 (1 + 5/100)3
= 8000 (105/100)3
= Rs 9261
∴ Compound Interest = A – P = Rs 9261 – Rs 8000 = Rs 1261
10. Find the compound interest at the rate of 10% per annum for two years on that principal which in two years at the rate of 10% per annum given Rs. 200 as simple interest.
Solution:
Given details are,
Simple interest (SI) = Rs 200
Rate (r) = 10 %
Time = 2 years
So, by using the formula,
Simple interest = P×T×R/100
P = (SI × 100)/ T×R
= (200 × 100) / 2 × 10
= 20000/20
= Rs 1000
Now,
Rate of compound interest = 10%
Time = 2years
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100) n
= 1000 (1 + 10/100)2
= 1000 (110/100)2
= Rs 1210
∴ Compound Interest = A – P = Rs 1210 – Rs 1000 = Rs 210

Rate (r) = 16%
Time (t) = 2 ¼ years
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100 × 1 + R/100)
= 15625 (1 + 16/100)2 × (1 + (16/4)/100)
= 15625 (1 + 16/100)2 × (1 + 4/100)
= 15625 (1.16)2 × (1.04)
= Rs 21866
∴ Amount after 2 ¼ years is Rs 21866
18. What will Rs. 125000 amount to at the rate of 6%, if the interest is calculated after every four months?
Solution:
Given details are,

Rate (r) = 6% per annum
Time (t) = 1 year
Since interest is compounded after 4months, interest will be counted as 6/3 = 2% and
Time will be 12/4 = 3quarters
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100) n
= 125000 (1 + 2/100)3
= 125000 (102/100)3
= Rs 132651
∴ Amount is Rs 132651
19. Find the compound interest at the rate of 5% for three years on that principal which in three years at the rate of 5% per annum gives Rs. 12000 as simple interest.
Solution:
Given details are,
Simple interest (SI) = Rs 12000
Rate (r) = 5% per annum
Time (t) = 3 years
SI = (PTR)/100
P = (SI×100) / (T×R)
= (12000×100) / (3×5)
= 1200000/15
= 80000
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100) n
= 80000 (1 + 5/100)3
= 80000 (105/100)3
= Rs 92610
∴ CI = Rs 92610 – 80000 = Rs 12610
20. A sum of money was lent for 2 years at 20% compounded annually. If the interest is payable half-yearly instead of yearly, then the interest is Rs. 482 more. Find the sum.
Solution:
Given details are,
Rate (r) = 20% per annum = 20/2 = 10% (half yearly)
Time (t) = 2 years = 2 × 2 = 4 half years
Principal be = Rs P
P (1 + R/100) n – P (1 + R/100) n = 482
P (1 + 10/100)4 – P (1 + 20/100)2 = 482
P (110/100)4 – P (120/100)2 = 482
P (1.4641) – P (1.44) = 482
0.0241P = 482
P = 482/0.0241
= 20000
∴ Amount is Rs 20000
21. Simple interest on a sum of money for 2 years at 6 ½ % per annum is Rs. 5200. What will be the compound interest on the sum at the same rate for the same period?
Solution:
Given details are,
Rate = 6 ½ % per annum = 13/2%
Simple Interest (SI) = Rs 5200
Time (t) = 2 years
By using the formula,
SI = (PTR)/100
P = (SI×100) / (T×R)
= (5200×100) / (2×13/2)
= (5200×100×2) / (2×13)
= 1040000/26
= Rs 40000
Now,
P = Rs 40000
R = 13/2% = 6.5%
T = 2years
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100) n
= 40000 (1 + 6.5/100)2
= 40000 (106.5/100)2
= Rs 45369
∴ CI = Rs 45369 – 40000 = Rs 5369
22. What will be the compound interest at the rate of 5% per annum for 3 years on that principal which in 3 years at the rate of 5% per annum gives Rs. 1200 as simple interest.

Simple Interest (SI) = Rs 1200
Time (t) = 3 years
By using the formula,
SI = (PTR)/100
P = (SI×100) / (T×R)
= (1200×100) / (3×5)
= 120000/15
= Rs 8000
Now,
P = Rs 8000
R = 5%
T = 3years
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100) n
= 8000 (1 + 5/100)3
= 8000 (105/100)3
= Rs 9261
∴ CI = Rs 9261 – 8000 = Rs 1261

Solution:
Given details are,
Rate = 5 % per annum
Compound Interest (CI) = Rs 164
Time (t) = 2 years
By using the formula,
Let P be ‘x’
CI = A – P
164 = P (1 + R/100) n – P
= P [(1 + R/100)n – 1]
= x [(1 + 5/100)2 – 1]
= x [(105/100)2 – 1]
164 = x ((1.05)2 – 1)
x = 164 / ((1.05)2 – 1)
= 164/0.1025
= Rs 1600
∴ The required sum is Rs 1600

Time (t) = 2 years
By using the formula,
Let P be ‘x’
CI = A – P
210 = P (1 + R/100) n – P
= P [(1 + R/100)n – 1]
= x [(1 + 10/100)2 – 1]
= x [(110/100)2 – 1]
210 = x ((1.1)2 – 1)
x = 210 / ((1.1)2 – 1)
= 210/0.21
= Rs 1000
∴ The required sum is Rs 1000

Solution:
Given details are,
Rate = 12 ½% per annum = 25/2% = 25/2/2 = 25/4% half yearly
Amount = Rs 4913
Time (t) = 18months = 18/12years = 3/2 × 2 = 3 half years
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100) n
4913 = P (1 + 25/4 ×100)3
P = 4913 / (1 + 25/400)3
= 4913/1.19946
= 4096
∴ The principal amount is Rs 4096
5. The difference between the compound interest and simple interest on a certain sum at 15% per annum for 3 years is Rs. 283.50. Find the sum.
Solution:
Given details are,
Rate = 15 % per annum
Compound Interest (CI) – Simple Interest (SI)= Rs 283.50
Time (t) = 3 years
By using the formula,
CI – SI = 283.50
P [(1 + R/100)n – 1] – (PTR)/100 = 283.50
P [(1 + 15/100)3 – 1] – (P(3)(15))/100 = 283.50
P[1.520 – 1] – (45P)/100 = 283.50
0.52P – 0.45P = 283.50
0.07P = 283.50
P = 283.50/0.07
= 4000
∴ The sum is Rs 4000
6. Rachana borrowed a certain sum at the rate of 15% per annum. If she paid at the end of two years Rs. 1290 as interest compounded annually, find the sum she borrowed.

P = 1290/0.3225
= 4000
∴ The sum is Rs 4000
7. The interest on a sum of Rs. 2000 is being compounded annually at the rate of 4% per annum. Find the period for which the compound interest is Rs. 163.20.
Solution:
Given details are,
Rate = 4 % per annum
CI = Rs 163.20
Principal (P) = Rs 2000
By using the formula,
CI = P [(1 + R/100)n – 1]
163.20 = 2000[(1 + 4/100)n – 1]
163.20 = 2000 [(1.04)n -1]
163.20 = 2000 × (1.04)n – 2000
163.20 + 2000 = 2000 × (1.04)n
2163.2 = 2000 × (1.04)n
(1.04)n = 2163.2/2000
(1.04)= 1.0816
(1.04)n = (1.04)2
So on comparing both the sides, n = 2
∴ Time required is 2years

A = P (1 + R/100)n
6655 = 5000 (1 + 10/100)n
6655 = 5000 (11/10)n
(11/10)n = 6655/5000
(11/10)n = 1331/1000
(11/10)n = (11/10)3
So on comparing both the sides, n = 3
∴ Time required is 3years
9. In what time will Rs. 4400 become Rs. 4576 at 8% per annum interest compounded half-yearly?

A = Rs 4576
Principal (P) = Rs 4400
Let n be ‘2T’
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100)n
4576 = 4400 (1 + 4/100)2T
4576 = 4400 (104/100)2T
(104/100)2T = 4576/4400
(104/100)2T = 26/25
(26/25)2T = (26/25)1
So on comparing both the sides, n = 2T = 1
∴ Time required is ½ year

Time = 2years
Compound Interest (CI) – Simple Interest (SI)= Rs 20
By using the formula,
CI – SI = 20
P [(1 + R/100)n – 1] – (PTR)/100 = 20
P [(1 + 4/100)2 – 1] – (P(2)(4))/100 = 20
P[51/625] – (2P)/25 = 20
51/625P – 2/25P = 20
(51P-50P)/625 = 20
P = 20 × 625
P = 20/7.918

Time = 2 years
Let rate = R%
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100)n
774.40 = 640 (1 + R/100)2
(1 + R/100)2 = 774.40/640
(1 + R/100)2 = 484/400
(1 + R/100)2 = (22/20)2
By cancelling the powers on both sides,
(1 + R/100) = (22/20)
R/100 = 22/20 – 1
= (22-20)/20
= 2/20
= 1/10
R = 100/10
= 10%
∴ Required Rate is 10% per annum
13. Find the rate percent per annum if Rs. 2000 amount to Rs. 2662 in 1 ½ years, interest being compounded half-yearly?
Solution:
Given details are,
Principal = Rs 2000
Amount = Rs 2662
Time = 1 ½ years = 3/2 × 2 = 3 half years
Let rate be = R% per annum = R/2 % half yearly
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100)n
2662 = 2000 (1 + R/2×100)3
(1 + R/200)3 = 1331/1000
(1 + R/100)3 = (11/10)3
By cancelling the powers on both sides,
(1 + R/200) = (11/10)
R/200 = 11/10 – 1
= (11-10)/10
= 1/10
R = 200/10
= 20%
∴ Required Rate is 20% per annum

So,
We know, SI = PTR/100
= P×2×R/100
P×R = 10000 ………….. Equation 1
CI = A – P
CI = P [(1 + R/100)n – 1]
210 = P [(1 + R/100)2 – 1]
210 = P (12 + R2/1002 + 2(1)(R/100) – 1) (by using the formula (a+b)2)
210 = P (1 + R2/10000 + R/50 – 1)
210 = P (R2/10000 + R/50)
210 = PR2/10000 + PR/50
We know PR = 10000 from Equation 1
210 = 10000R/10000 + 10000/50
210 = R + 200
R = 210 – 200
= 10%
In Equation 1, PR = 10000
P = 10000/R
= 10000/10
= 1000
∴ Required sum is Rs 1000

Let rate be = R % per annum
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100)n
2315.25 = 2000 (1 + R/100)3/2
(1 + R/100)3/2 = 2315.25/2000
(1 + R/100)3/2 = (1.1576)
(1 + R/100) = 1.1025
R/100 = 1.1025 – 1
= 0.1025 × 100

P [(1 + R/100)n – 1] – (PTR)/100 = 360
P [(1 + 7.5/100)2 – 1] – (P(2)(7.5))/100 = 360
P[249/1600] – (3P)/20 = 360
249/1600P – 3/20P = 360
(249P-240P)/1600 = 360
9P = 360 × 1600
P = 576000/9
= 64000
∴ The sum is Rs 64000

By using the formula,
CI = P [(1 + R/100)n – 1]
410 = 4000 [(1 + R/100)2 – 1]
410 = 4000 (1 + R/100)2 – 4000
410 + 4000 = 4000 (1 + R/100)2
(1 + R/100)2 = 4410/4000
(1 + R/100)2 = 441/400
(1 + R/100)2 = (21/20)2
By cancelling the powers on both the sides,
1 + R/100 = 21/20
R/100 = 21/20 – 1
= (21-20)/20
= 1/20
R = 100/20

Rate = R% per annum
Let time = 2 years
By using the formula,
A = P (1 + R/100)n
1102.50 = 1000 (1 + R/100)2
(1 + R/100)2 = 1102.50/1000
(1 + R/100)2 = 4410/4000
(1 + R/100)2 = (21/20)2
1 + R/100 = 21/20
R/100 = 21/20 – 1
= (21-20)/20
= 1/20
R = 100/20

26. The compound interest on Rs. 1800 at 10% per annum for a certain period of time is Rs. 378. Find the time in years.
Solution:
Given details are,
Principal = Rs 1800
CI = Rs 378
Rate = 10% per annum
Let time = T years
By using the formula,
CI = P [(1 + R/100)n – 1]
378 = 1800 [(1 + 10/100)T – 1]
378 = 1800 [(110/100)T – 1]
378 = 1800 [(11/10)T – 1800
378 + 1800 = 1800 [(11/10)T
(11/10)T = 2178/1800
(11/10)T = 726/600
(11/10)T = 121/100
(11/10)T = (11/10)2
So on comparing both the sides, n = T = 2
∴ Time required is 2years
