Answers 

1.(a)  S.I. = 1680, R = 4%  T = 5 years
    Principal = (100 *1680)/ (5*4) = 8400
    So P = 8400
    Rate = (100 *1680)/ (8400 * 4) = 5%

2. (b) S.I. = Rs. 405 R = 4.5% T = 1 year
   Principal = (100 *405)/(4.5*1) =  Rs.9000
   S.I at 5% interest = (9000*5*1)/100 = Rs.450
   Difference in interest = 450 – 405 = Rs.45

3. (a) Let the sum invested in Scheme S1 be Rs.x and that in Scheme S2 be Rs.(13900-x).
    Then, (x*14*2)/100 + ((13900-x)*11*2)/100 = 3508;
    28x-22x= 3350800-(13900*22);
    6x = 45000;    x= 7500
    So sum invested in Scheme S2 = Rs. (13900-7500) = Rs.6400
4. (b) Let the sum be Rs.x
   S.I from the bank = x*8*3/100 = 34x/100Earnings in the form of interest from mutual fund  = (x * 8.5
   *4)/100 = 34x/100
   Given that 34x/100 – 34x/100  = Rs.500 ; x = 5000
   : . The sum invested = 5000
5.(c)  Let the time be x years. Then (600 *3* x)/100 + (800*9*x)/(2*100) = 24
   18x+ 36x = 246 ;   x = 246/54 = 4 years
   Required time = 4 years
6. (b) Let the amounts be x, y, z in ascending order of value. As the interest rate and interest             accrued are same for 4 years 3 years and 2 years i.e. 4x = 3y = 2z  = k.
    L.C.M. of 4,3,2 = 12 So x:y:z: = 3000 : 4000 :6000
    The amount deposited for 4 years = 3000
7.(d)  Total amount of Interest  is
    I = P/100 * 1[3/12 + 9/12 +27/12…. 312/12
    Where P = 100;  I = 1/12 (3+9+…..312)
    I = 1/12(3(312-1))/3-1
    = 531440* 3/12*2 =Rs.66430
8. (a)  S I for 2 years = 3800 ie for one year =1900
    The compound interest for Rs.1900 for the second year = 1900*12/100 =228
    The CI for two years  3800+228 = 4028
9. (b)  Principal = 882/(1+(5/100)) + 882/(1+(5/100)= (882*20)/21+ (882*400)/441
                =840 +800 = Rs.1640
10. (a). Let the second amount be Rs.x. then,
(12000* 10 * 1)/100 + (x*20 *1)/100 = ((12000 +x)* 14*1)/100
                = 1200 +x/5 = (168000 +14x)/100
600000 + 100x = 840000 +70 x
30x = 240000;  X = 8000
     Total investment = 12000 +8000 = Rs.20000
11.  (b)
12. (a) Let sum be Rs.100. After 16 years it become 300. With in 16 years it increased Rs.200 i.e. after 8 years it is doubled. So after 32 years interest become Rs.400. Total Rs.500 i.e. 5 times more than the
    sum. So 32 years is the answer.
13. (a) Amount = Rs. (30000 + 4347) = Rs. 34347.
     Let the time be n years.
     Then, 30000 (1 + 7/100)n = 34347
     (107/100) n = 34347/30000 = 11449/10000 = (107/100)2
     So the period is 2 years.
14. (a) Let the rate be R% p.a. (1+ R )2 = 1348.32. Then, 1200* (1+ (R/100))2 = 1348.32
     (1+R/100)2 = 134832/120000 = 11236/10000 :. (1 + R/100) 2 = (106/100)2
     1 + R/100 = 106/100.  So R = 6%
15. (b)  Simple interest for 2 years = Rs.50 ie. For 1 years Rs. 25. . In the first year the S.I and C.I are
     same ie.Rs. 25. So in  the 2nd year  in C.I calculated for 1 years interest also. So in second years for

     Rs.25 interest is 25*5/100 = 1.25 . So total C.P = 51.25.
