Question 1.

If Rihanna deposits Rs 1500 in the school fund at 9 p.c.p.a for 2 years, what is the total amount she will get?

Solution:

Here, P = Rs 1500, R = 9 p.c.p.a , T = 2 years

= 1500 x 9 x 2

= Rs 270

∴ Total amount = Principal + Interest

= 1500 + 270

= Rs 1770

∴ Rihanna will get a total amount of Rs 1770.

Question 2.

Jethalal took a housing loan of Rs 2,50,000 from a bank at 10 p.c.p.a. for 5 years. What is the yearly interest he must pay and the total amount he returns to the bank?

Solution:

Here, P = Rs 250000, R = 10 p.c.p.a., T = 5 years

= 2500 x 10 x 5

= Rs 1,25,000

∴ Yearly interest = Total interest ÷ Time = 1,25,000 ÷ 5 = Rs 25000

Total amount to be returned = Principal + Total interest

= 250000 + 125000 = Rs 375000

∴ The yearly interest is Rs 25,000 and Jethalal will have to return Rs 3,75,000 to the bank.

Question 3.

Shrikant deposited Rs 85,000 for 2 years at 7 p.c.p.a. in a savings bank account. What is the total

interest he received at the end of the period?

Solution:

= 85 x 7 x 25

= Rs 14875

∴ The total interest received by Shrikant at the end of the period is Rs 14875.

Question 4.

At a certain rate of interest, the interest after 4 years on Rs 5000 principal is Rs 1200. What would be the interest on Rs 15000 at the same rate of interest for the same period?

Solution:

The interest on Rs 5000 after 4 years is Rs 1200.

Let us suppose the interest on Rs 15000 at the same rate after 4 years is Rs x.

Taking the ratio of interest and principal, we get

= Rs 3600

∴ The interest received on Rs 15000 is Rs 3600.

Question 5.

If Pankaj deposits Rs 1,50,000 in a bank at 10 p.c.p.a. for two years, what is the total amount he will get from the bank?

Solution:

Here, P = 150000, R = 10 p.c.p.a., T = 2 years

= Rs 30000

∴ Total amount = Principal + Total Interest

= 150000 + 30000

= Rs 180000

∴ Pankaj will receive Rs 180000 from the bank.
