Simple and Compound Interest Exercise 10.1 Solution :

Question on – (1)

Solution :

Here,

(P) Principal = Rs 5575

(R) Rate of interest = 12%

(T) Time = 5 years

We know,

Simple interest (SI) = PRT/100

= 5575 × 12 × 5/100

= 3345

Therefore, the required simple interest Rs 3345

Question no – (2)

Solution :

Here,

P = Rs 9750

R = 2.5 per month

T = 2 years

= 2 × 12 month

= 24 month

SI = PRT/100

= 9750 × 2.5 × 24/100 × 10

= Rs 5850

Therefore, the required simple interest Rs 5850

Now, Amount = Principal + Interest

= 9750 + 5850

= Rs 15600

Therefore, the required amount Rs 15600

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Here,

Principal (P) = Rs 5600

R = 2 1/8% = 17/8%

Time (T) = 3 1/4 years

= 13/4 years

Simple interest (SI) = PRT/100

= 5600 × 17 × 13/100 × 8 × 4

= 386.75

Therefore, the interest Rs 386.75

Question no – (4)

Solution :

Here,

P = 18,000

R = 9%

T = 14th January 2015 to 21st August 2015

Number in days in January = 17

Number in days in February = 28

Number in days in March = 31

Number in days April = 30

Number in days in May = 31

Number in days in June = 30

Number in days in July = 31

Number in days in August = 21

Total number of days = 219

T = 219/365 = 0.6

Now, SI = 18000 × 9 × 0.6/100 × 10

= Rs 972

Therefore the required interest Rs 972

Question no – (5)

Solution :

Here,

Principle (P) = 73,000

Rate of interest (R) = 15%

Time = 8th April 1999 to 7th August 1999

Number of days in April = 22

Number of days in May = 31

Number of days in June = 30

Number of days in July = 31

Number of days in August = 7

Total number of days = 121

T = 121/365 = 0.33

SI = 73000 × 15 × 0.33/100 × 100

= Rs 3613.5

Amount she pay

= Principal + Interest

= 73000 + 3613.5

= Rs 76613.5

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Here,

Principal (P) = 46,5000

R = 20%

T = 3rd January 2013 to 17th march

Number of days in January = 28

Number of days in February = 28

Number of days in March = 17

Total number of days = 63

= 0.17

S.I = 46,5000 × 20 × 0.17/100 × 100

= 158100/10

= Rs 15810

Amount did he have to pay

= 465000 + 15810

= Rs 480810

Question no – (7)

Solution :

Here,

Principal = 54,000

Amount = 64,125

Amount = Principal + interest

=> Interest = Amount – Principal

= 64,125 – 54000

= 10,125

Now,

R = 7 1/2%

= 15/2

SI = PRT/100

=> T = SI × 100/PR

= 10,125 × 100 × 2/54000 × 15

= 2.5

Therefore, the required time 2.5 years.

Question no – (8)

Solution :

Here,

Interest = 340

Time = 4 years

Rate (R) = 8 1/2%

= 17/2%

SI = PRT/100

=> 340 = P × 17 × 4/2 × 100

=> P = 2 × 100 × 340/17 × 4

= Rs 1000

Therefore, required sum deposited in the bank Rs 1000.

Question no – (9)

Solution :

Here,

P = Rs 1500

R = 3%

T = 3 years

SI = PRT/100

= 1500 × 3 × 3/100

= 135

Total SI = 135 + 500

= 635

He still owner = 500 + 635

= Rs 1135

Question no – (10)

Solution :

1st invests

R = 4%

T = 1 years

Let, principal = P

SI1 = P × 4 × 1/100

= 4P/100

2nd invests

P = 156500

R = 4 1/2 = 9/2%

T = 1year

SI = PRT/100

=> SI2 = 156500 × 9 × 1/2 × 100

= 9 × 1565/2

According to the question,

SI1 + SI2 = 115750

=> 4P/100 + 9 × 1565/2

= 115750

=> 4P/100 = 115750 – 7042.5

=> 4P/100 = 108707.5

=> 4P = 108707.5 × 100

=> P = 108707.5 × 100/4 × 10

= Rs 2717687.5

Money at 4% Pa is Rs 2717687.5

Question no – (11)

Solution :

Here,

Neha borrowed = Rs 5400

Priya borrowed = Rs 6000

Let, the rate of interest = r

Time = 1 3/5 = 8/5 years

For Neha,

SI1 = 5400 × r × 8/5 × 100

= 432r/5

For Priya,

SI2 = 6000 × r × 8/5 × 100

= 96r

According to the question,

SI2 – SI1 = 240

=> 96r – 432r/5 = 240

=> 480r – 432r/5 = 240

=> r = 240 × 5/48

= 25%

Therefore, the rate of interest 25%

Question no – (12)

Solution :

The simple interest on a sum of money is 1/16 of the principal.

Therefore,

Principal = 16x

Simple interest = x

and,

Let, the rate of interest and time same = r

SI = PRT/100

=> x = 16x × r × r/100

=> 16r2 = 100

=> r2 = 100/16

=> r = √100/16

= √10 × 10/4 × 4

= 10/4

= 5/2 Rate of interest 2 1/2%

Question no – (13)

Solution :

Here,

Principal = 2000

Rate of interest = 5%

Time = 2 years

SI = 2000 × 5 × 2/100

= 20 × 10

= 200

After 2 years he should return = Principal + Interest

= 2000 + 200

= Rs 2200

Question no – (14)

Solution :

Let, the sum be = Rs x

T1 = 3 1/3 = 13/4 years

R1 = 4 1/2% = 9/2%

Now,

T2 = 2 years

R2 = 5%

Now,

SI1 = x × 9/2 × 13/4/100

= x × 9 × 13/2 × 4 × 100

= 117x/800

and SI2 = x × 5 × 2/100

= x × 10/100

= x/10

According to the question,

SI1 – SI2 = 1221

=> 117x/800 – x/10 = 1221

=> 117x – 80x/800 = 1221

=> 37x/800 = 1221

=> x = 1221 × 800/37

= Rs 26400

Therefore, the required sum Rs 26400

Question no – (15)

Solution :

Let, the rate of interest be r and sum be P

Amount = 6P, T = 15years

SI = Amount – Principal

= 6P – P

= 5P

Now,

S.I = PRT/100

=> 5P = P × r × 15/100

=> r = 100 × 5/15

= 100/3 Therefore, the rate of interest 33 1/3%

Question no – (16)

Solution :

Let, x and (5400 – x) be invested into two parts.

For 1st part,

r = 5%, T = 4years

P = x

SI = x × 5 × 4/100

= 20x/100

and,

2nd part

r = 15%, T = 2 years

P = 5400 – x

SI = (5400 – x) × 2 × 15/100

According to the question, two interest are some,

20x/100 = (5400 – x) × 30/100

=> 2x = 16200 – 3x

=> 5x = 16200

=> x = 3240

2nd part = (5400 – 3240) = Rs 2160

Simple and Compound Interest Exercise 10.2 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(a) Here,

Principal (P) = Rs 300

Rate of interest (R) = 5%

Time (t) = 3 years

Amount (A) = P (1 + R/100)T

= 300 (1 + 5/100)3

= 300 × (100 + 5/100)3

= 300 × 105/100 × 105/100 × 105/100

= 3472875/10000

= Rs 347.2875

Compound interest (CI) = A – P

= 347.28 – 300

= Rs 47.28

Therefore the required amount 347.287 and compound interest Rs 47.28

(b) Here,

P = 4000

R = 2%

T = 3 years

A = P (1 + R/100)T

= 4000 (1 + 2/100)3

= 4000 × 102/100 × 102/100 × 102/100

= 4244832/1000

= 4244.832

CI = A – P

= 4244.832 – 4000

= 244.832

Therefore, the required amount 4244.832 and the compound interest Rs 244.832

(c) Here,

P = 5000

R = 5%

T = 3 years

A = P (1 + R/100)T

= 5000 (1 + 5/100)3

= 5000 (1 + 1/20)3

= 5000 (21/20)3

= 5000 × 21/20 × 21/20 × 21/20

= 105 × 21 × 21/8

= 46305/8

= 5788.125

C.I = A – P

= 5788.125 – 5000

= Rs 788.125

Therefore, the required amount Rs 5788.125 and compound interest Rs 788.125

(d) Here,

P = 10,000

R = 4%

T = 2 years

Now,

A = P (1 + R/100)T

= 10,000 (1 + 4/100)2

= 10,000 (1 + 1/25)2

= 10,000 × 26/25 × 26/25

= 6760,000/625

= Rs 10816

CI = A – P

= 10816 – 10,000

= Rs 816

Therefore, the required amount Rs 10816 and the compound interest Rs 816

Question no – (2)

Solution :

Here,

Principal (P) = Rs 15000

Rate (R) = 12%

Time (T) = 3 years

Now,

Amount (A) = P (1 + R/100)T

= 15000 (1 + 12/100)3

= 15000 (112/100)3

= 15000 × 112 × 112 × 112/100 × 100 × 100

= 21073920/1000

= Rs 21073.92

Compound interest = A – P

= 21073.92 – 15000

= Rs 6073.92

Therefore the required compound interest Rs 6073.72

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Here,

Principal (P) = Rs 20,000

1st year interest (R1) = 5%, T = 1 year

A1 = P (1 + R1/100)T

= 20,000 (1 + 5/100)1

= 20,000 × 105/100

= 200 × 105

= Rs 21000

2nd year interest (R2) = 7%, Time = 1 year

A2 = P (1 + R2/100)T

= 20,000 (1 + 7/100)1

= 20,000 × 107/100

= Rs 21400

3rd year interest (R3) = 10%, Time = 1 year

A3 = P (1 + R3/100)T

= 20,000 (1 + 10/100)1

= 20,000 (11/10)

= 22000

Total amount = A1 + A2 + A3

= 21000 + 21400 + 22000

= Rs 64400

Therefore, compound interest = Amount – principal

= 64400 – 20,000

= Rs 24400

Question no – (4)

Solution :

Here,

Principal (P) = 5000

Rate (R) = 10%

Time (T) = 5years

SI = PRT/100

= 5000 × 10 × 5/100

= Rs 2500

and

A = P (1 + R/100)T

= 5000 (1 + 10/100)5

= 5000 × 11 × 11 × 11 × 11 × 11/10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10

= 805,255/100

= Rs 8052.55

Compound interest = A – P

= 8052.55 – 5000

= Rs 3052.55

Difference between compound and simple interest = CI – SI

= (3052.55 – 2500) Rs

= Rs 552.55

Therefore, the required difference Rs 552.55

Question no – (5)

Solution :

Here,

Principal (P) = 15000

Time (T) = 3 years

Rate of interest (R) = 5%

Amount = P (1 + R/100)T

= 15000 (1 + 5/100)3

= 15000 × (1 + 1/20)3

= 15000 (21/20)3

= 15000 × 21 × 21 × 21/20 × 20 × 20

= Rs 17364.375

Therefore, Aryan will get on amount Rs 17364.375 of the fixed deposit.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Let, the sum be = x

Rate (R) = 8%

Time (T) = 1.5 years

Now,

SI = PRT/100

=> 360 = P × 8 × 1.5/100 × 10

=> P = 3600 × 100/8 × 15

=> P = 3000

Now,

Principal (P) = Rs 3000

Rate (R) = 8%

Time (T) = 1.5 × 2

= 3 year.

Amount (A) = P (1 + R/100)T

= 3000 (1 + 8/100)3

= 3000 (27/25)3

= 3000 × 27 × 27 × 27/25 × 25 × 25

= Rs 3779.136

Compound interest (CI) = A – P

= 3779.136 – 3000

= Rs 779.136

Therefore the required compound interest Rs 779.136

Question no – (7)

Solution :

Here,

P = 15000

R = 8%

T = 1 1/2 = 3/2

Interest payable half yearly

Now, R = 8/2 = 4%

T = 3/2 × 2 = 3 year

Now,

A = P (1 + R/100)T

= 15000 (1 + 4/100)3

= 15000 (1 + 1/25)3

= 15000 × (26/25)3

= 15000 × 26 × 26 × 26/25 × 25 × 25

= Rs 16872.96

Compound interest = A – P

= 16872.96 – 15000

= Rs 1872.96

Therefore, the required compound interest Rs 1872.96

Question no – (8)

Solution :

Here,

T = 2 years

R = 4%

CI = 306

Let, principal = x

Now,

C.I = P (1 + R/100)T – P

=> 306 = x (1 + 4/100)2 – x

=> 306 = x (25 + 1/25)2 – x

=> 306 = x (26/25)2 – x

=> 306 = x {(26/25)2 – 1}

=> 306 = x {676 – 625/625}

=> 306 = x × 51/625

=> x = 306 × 625/51

=> x = Rs 3750

Therefore, the required principal Rs 3750

Question no – (9)

Solution :

Here,

Amount (A) = 8820

Time (T) = 2 years

Rate of interest (R) = 5%

Let, Principal (P) = x

Now,

A = P (1 + R/100)T

=> 8820 = x (1 + 5/100)2

=> 8820 = x (1 + 1/20)2

=> 8820 = x (20 + 1/20)2

=> 8820 = x × 21/20 × 21/20

=> x = 8820 × 20 ×20/21 × 21

= 8000

Principal = Rs 8000

Question no – (10)

Solution :

(a) Here,

Amount (A) = Rs 729

Principal (P) = Rs 625

Time (T) = 2 years

We have,

A = P (1 + R/100)T

=> 729 = 625 (1 + R/100)2

=> 729/625 = (1 + R/100)2

=> (1 + R/100) = √729/625

=> (1 + R/100) = 27/25 – 1

=> R/100 = 27 – 25/25

=> R/100 = 2/25

=> R = 2 × 100/25

=> R = 8%

Therefore, the required rate 8%

(b) Here,

A = Rs 1458

P = Rs 1250

T = 2 years

Rate = R%

Now,

A = P (1 + R/100)T

=> 1458 = 1250 (1 + R/100)2

=> 1458/1250 = (1 + R/100)2

=> √1458/1250 = (1 + R/100)

=> 38/35 = 1 + R/100

=> 1 + R/100 = 38/35

=> R/100 = 38/35 – 1

=> R/100 = 38 – 35/35

=> R/100 = 3/35

=> R = 3 × 100/35

= 300/35

= 60/7 Therefore rate 8 4/7%

Question no – (11)

Solution :

Here,

Amount (A) = Rs 676

Principal = Rs 625

Rate (R) = 4%

Let, Time = T

Now,

A = P (1 + R/100)T

=> 676 = 625 (1 + 4/100)T

=> 676/625 = (1 + 4/100)T

=> 676/625 = (26/25)T

=> (26/25)2 = (26/25)T

=> T = 2

Therefore the required time 2 years.

Question no – (12)

Solution :

Here,

Amount (A) = Rs 12167

Principal (P) = 8000

Rate (R) = 15%

Time = T

Now,

A = P (1 + R/100)T

=> 12167 = 8000 (1 + 15/100)T

=> 12167/8000 = (1 + 3/20)T

=> 12167/8000 = (23/20)T

=> (23/20)3 = (23/20)T

=> T = 3

Therefore, the required time 3 years.

Question no – (14)

Solution :

A = P (1 + R/100)T

=> 729 = 625 (1 + 8/100)T

=> 729 = 625 (1 + 2/25)T

=> 729 = 625 (27/25)T

=> 729/625 = (27/25)T

=> (27/25)2 = (27/25)T

=> T = 2

Therefore the required time 2 years.

Question no – (15)

Solution :

Let, the principal be = x

Rate (r) = 5%

Time (T) = 3 years

Now,

S.I = PRT/100

= x × 5 × 3/100

= 3x/20

and,

C.I = P (1 + R/100)T – P

= x (1 + 5/100)3 – x

According to the question,

x (1 + 5/100)3 – x- 3x/20 = 183

=> x (1 + 1/20)3 – x – 3x/20 = 183

=? x (21/20)3 – x – 3x/20 = 183

=> x (9261/8000 – 1 – 3/20) = 183

=> x (9261 – 8000 – 1200/8000) = 183

=> x (9261 – 9200/8000) = 183

=> x (61/8000) = 183

=> x = 183 × 8000/61

= 24000

Therefore, the required principal Rs 24000

A = P (1 – r/100)T

= 1000000 (1 – 10/100)2

= 1000000 × 90/10 × 9/10

= 810000

The value of after 2 years 810000

Question no – (5)

Solution :

Here,

P = 10000

R = 12.5%

T = 20

The required amount = 10,000 (1 + 12.5/100)20

= 10,000 (112.5/100)20

= 10,000 (1.125)20 à given

= 10,000 × 10.545

= 10,5450

The amount will be R 10,5450.
