rate of interest per annum is

(a) 100% (b) 80% (c) 20% (d) 10% (e) None of these

Ans: (a) 100%

Explanation:

i.e. P( 1 + r/100) = 8P

(1+ r/100) =8 = 2

So, 1 + r/100 = 2 and r/100 = 2 1 =1

Then, r = 100%. Ans.

Q. 29. The Compound interest on a certain sum for 2 years is Rs.412 and the simple interest

is Rs.400. What is the rate of interest per annum?

(a) 3% (b) 4% (c) 6% (d) 8% (e) 5%

Ans: (c) 6%

Explanation:

In C I, the simple interest for the previous year is added to the principal and the interest for

this amount is also included in the interest of the current year.

Thus, the difference 412 -400 = Rs.12 is the interest for the first years S I at the same rate of

interest.

Here, the first years SI = 400/2 = Rs.200

Rs. 12 is the interest for Rs.200 in one year.

So, the rate of interest = SI 100/ P n

= 12 100/ 200 1 = 6% p.a. Ans.

Q. 30. A certain sum of money is put on simple interest at a certain rate for 4 years. Had it

been put at 3 % higher rate, it would have fetched Rs.360 more. What is the amount?

(a) Rs.2400 (b) Rs.3000 (c) Rs.3600 (d) Rs.4200 (e) None of these

Ans: (b) Rs.3000

Explanation:

At 3% more rate, the increase in SI for the 4 years = Rs.360

So, the increase in S I for 1 year = 360/4 = Rs.90

Rs.90 is 3% of the sum.

So,1% of the sum = 90/3

Therefore, the sum = 90 100/3 = Rs.3000. Ans.

OR

Let x be the sum and r the rate percent per annum.

Then, x (r + 3) 4/100 x r 4/100 = 360

i.e. x ( r + 3) 4 x r 4 = 360 100

4x ( r +3) 4xr = 36000 i.e. 4xr + 12x 4xr = 36000

12x = 36000 and therefore, x = 36000/12 = Rs.3000. Ans.

Q. 31. What will be the difference between the simple and the compound interest at the rate

of 15% per annum on a sum of Rs.12000 after 3 years?

(a) Rs.875 (b) Rs.900 (c) Rs.800.3 (d) Rs.860.5 (e) Rs.850.5

Ans: (e) Rs.850.5

Explanation:

If the Sum of money invested, the Rate percent and the Term are given and is asked to find

the difference between the C I and S I is calculated as:

Difference = Sum r (300 + r)/ (100)

Therefore, the required difference = 12000 15 (300 + 15)/ 100

= 12000 225 315/1000000

= Rs.850.5. Ans.

Q. 32. A sum was put at simple interest at a certain rate for 10 years. Had it been put at 5%

higher rate it would have fetched Rs.600 more. What was the sum?

(a) Rs. 2400 (b) Rs.2000 (c) Rs.1800 (d) Rs.1200 (e) None of these

Ans: (d) Rs.1200

Explanation:

At 5% more rate, the increase in SI for 10 years = Rs.600 (given)

So, at 5% more rate, the increase in SI for 1 year = 600/10 = Rs.60/-

i.e. Rs.60 is 5% of the invested sum

So, 1% of the invested sum = 60/5

Therefore, the invested sum = 60 100/5 = Rs.1200. Ans.

Q. 33. In what time will Rs.4200 amount to Rs.4898.88 at 16% compound interest payable

half-yearly?

(a) 1 Year (b) 2 years (c) 1.5 years (d) 2.5 years (e) 3 years

Ans: (a) 1 year

Explanation:

For CI payable at half-yearly, the Amount = P ( 1+ r/2/100)2n

i.e. 4200 ( 1+ 16/2/100)2n = 4898.88

i.e. 4200 (1 + 8/100) 2n = 4898.88

4200( 1+ 2/25)2n = 4898.88

i.e. (27/25)2n = 4898.88/4200 = 489888/420000 = 729/625 = (27/25)2 1

i.e. (27/25)2n = (27/25)2 1

therefore the time n = 1 year. Ans.

Q.34. What would be the compound interest obtained on an amount of Rs.6875 at the rate of

8% p.a. after two years?

(a) Rs.948 (b) Rs.1024 (c) Rs. 1144 (d) Rs.1216 (e) None of these

Ans: (c) Rs.1144

Explanation:

At CI, the Amount A = P ( 1+ r/100)n and CI = A - P

So, A = 6875 (1+ 8/100)2 = 6875 ( 108/100) = 6875 1.08 1.08 = Rs.8019

Therefore, CI = 8019 6875 = Rs.1144. Ans.

(a) Rs.3200 (b) Rs.3500 (c) Rs. 3600 (d) Rs.4000 (e) Rs.4800

Ans: (a) Rs.3200

Explanation:

Let the principal lent on 8% interest rate p.a = x

We know that, S I = p n r/100

Then, 8 4 x/100 + ( 7200 x) 12 4/100 = Rs. 2944

i.e. 32x + 345600 48x = 294400

345600 294400 = 48x -32x

51200 = 16x

Therefore, x = 51200/16 = Rs.3200. Ans.

Then the rate of interest = S I 100/ P n

= 351 100/540 5

= 13%.

After increase of 2% the new rate of interest = 15%

S I at this rate for 4 years = 540 15 4/100 = Rs.324

Therefore, the amount = P + S I = Rs.540 + Rs.324 = Rs.864. Ans.

Q. 76. The difference between the interest received from two different banks on Rs.1500 for

four years is Rs.75. Find the difference between their rates

(a) 0.25% (b) 0.5% (c) 0.75% (d) 1% (e) 1.25%

Ans: (e) 1.25%

Explanation:

Let r1 and r2 be the two rates of interest.

Then, S I = P r n/100

So, SI1 = 1500 4 r1/100 = 60r1

And S I 2 = 60r2

Given, SI1 SI2 = Rs.75

i.e. 60r1 60r2 = 75

60(r1 r2) = 75

So, r1 r2 = 75/60 =5/4 = 1.25%. Ans.
