## Chapter 13: SIMPLE INTEREST

### Introduction

Simple interest is calculated as
P * R * T / 100
Where P = Principal or the amount borrowed
R = Rate of interest
T = years
Note: The day on which money is deposited isn't counted but date on which money is withdrawn is counted.

• In what time will ₹ 800 amount to ₹ 882 at 10% per annum compounded half yearly?
• In what time will rupees 1800 amount to rupees 882 at 5% per annum compounded annually?
• At what time will rupees 8000 amount to 8820 at 5% per annum compounded annually?
• At what rate of compound interest will Rs 1250 amount to Rs 1800 in 2 years 2 points?

• Amount = Principal + Total interest

• A = P + $$\frac{P * t * r}{100}$$

• Time = $$\frac{\text{Total interest}}{\text{Interest on the principal in one year}}$$. Thus, if we have the total interest as  300 and the interest per year is  50, then we can say that the number of years is 300/50 = 6 years.

COMPOUND INTEREST

• Let principal = P, time = n years and rate = r% per annum and let A be the total amount at the end of n years, then A = P[$$1 + \frac{r}{100}$$]n

• When compound interest is reckoned half-yearly. If the annual rate is r% per annum and is to be calculated for n years. Then in this case, rate = (r/2)% half-yearly and time = (2n) half-years then A = P[$$1 + \frac{r/2}{100}$$]2n

• When compound interest is reckoned quarterly. In this case, rate = (r/4)% quarterly and time = (4n) quarter years. \ As before, then A = P[$$1 + \frac{r/4}{100}$$]4n

• The difference between the compound interest and the simple interest over two years is given by $$\frac{P * r^2}{100^2}$$

Q.

The SI on a sum of money is 25% of the principal, and the rate per annum is equal to the number of years. Find the rate percent.

4.5

6

5

8

Ans .

5

1. Explanation :
Let principal = x, time = t years
Then interest = x/4, rate = t%
Now, using the SI formula, we get
Interest = (Principal × Rate × Time)/100
so x/4 = (x × t × t)/100
so t2 = 25
and we get t = 5%

Q.

The rate of interest for first 3 years is 6% per annum, for the next 4 years, 7 per cent per annum and for the period beyond 7 years, 7.5 percentages per annum. If a man lent out  1200 for 11 years, find the total interest earned by him?

1002

912

864

948

Ans .

912 

1. Explanation :
Whenever it is not mentioned whether we have to assume SI or CI we should assume SI.
For any amount, interest for the 1st three years @ 6% SI will be equal to 6 × 3 = 18%
Again, interest for next 4 years will be equal to 7 × 4 = 28%.
And interest for next 4 years (till 11 years) –7.5 × 4 = 30%
So, total interest = 18 + 28 + 30 = 76%
So, total interest earned by him = 76% of the amount = (76*1200 / 100) = 912

Q.

A sum of money doubles itself in 12 years. Find the rate percentage per annum

12.5%

8.33%

10%

7.51%

Ans .

8.33% 

1. Explanation :
Let principal = x, then interest = x, time = 12 years.
Using the formula, Rate = (Interest × 100)/Principal × Time
= (x × 100)/(x × 12) = 8.33%

Q.

A certain sum of money amounts to  704 in 2 years and  800 in 5 years. Find the principal.

580

600

660

640

Ans .

640 

1. Explanation :
Let the principal be  x and rate = r%.
Then, difference in between the interest of 5 years and of 2 years equals to
800 –  704 =  96
So, interest for 3 years =  96
Hence, interest/year =  96/3 =  32
So, interest for 2 years Æ 2 ×  32 =  64
So, the principal =  704 –  64 =  640

Q.

A sum of money was invested at SI at a certain rate for 3 years. Had it been invested at a 4% higher rate, it would have fetched  480 more. Find the principal.

4000

4400

5000

3500

Ans .

4000

1. Explanation :
Let the rate be y% and principal be  x and the time be 3 years.
Then according to the question = (x(y + 4) × 3)/100 – (xy × 3)/100 = 480
so xy + 4x – xy = 160 × 100
so x = (160 × 100)/4 =  4000


Q.

A certain sum of money trebles itself in 8 years. In how many years it will be five times?

22

16

20

24

Ans .

16

1. Explanation :
It trebles itself in 8 years, which makes interest equal to 200% of principal.
So, 200% is added in 8 years.
Hence, 400%, which makes the whole amount equal to five times of the principal, which will be added in
16 years.

Q.

If CI is charged on a certain sum for 2 years at 10% the amount becomes 605. Find the principal?

550

450

480

500

Ans .

500

1. Explanation :
Using the formula, amount = Principal (1 + rate/100)time
605 = p(1 + 10/100)2 = p(11/10)2
p = 605(100/121) =  500

Q.

If the difference between the CI and SI on a certain sum of money is  72 at 12 per cent per annum for 2 years, then find the amount.

6000

5000

5500

6500

Ans .

5000

1. Explanation :
Simple interest and compound interest for the first year on any amount is the same.
Difference in the second year’s interest is due to the fact that compound interest is calculated over the first
year’s interest also.
Hence, we can say that  72 = Interest on first year’s interest Æ 12% on first year’s interest =  72.
Hence, first year’s interest =  600 which should be 12% of the original capital. Hence, original capital =
 5000 (this whole process can be done mentally).

Q.

The population of Jhumri Tilaiya increases by 10% in the first year, it increases by 20% in the second year and due to mass exodus, it decreases by 5% in the third year. What will be its population after 3 years, if today it is 10,000?

11,540

13,860

12,860

12,540

Ans .

12,540

1. Explanation :
Population at the end of 1 year will be Æ 10,000 + 10% of 10,000 = 11,000
At the end of second year it will be 11,000 + 20% of 11,000 = 13,200
At the end of third year it will be 13,200-5% of 13,200 = 12,540.

Q.

Seth Ankoosh Gawdekar borrows a sum of  1200 at the beginning of a year. After 4 months,  1800 more is borrowed at a rate of interest double the previous one. At the end of the year, the sum of interest on both the loans is  216. What is the first rate of interest per annum?

9

6

8

12

Ans .

6 

1. Explanation :
Let the rate of interest be = r%
Then, interest earned from  1200 at the end of year = (1200r)/100 =  12r
Again, interest earned from  1800 at the end of year = (1800/100) × (8/12) × 2r =  24r
So, total interest earned = 36r, which equals 216
fi r = 216/36 = 6%

550

500

375

400

Ans .

375 

1. Explanation :
Solve using options. If we try 500 (option b) for convenience, we can see that the difference between the two is  64 (as the SI would amount to 300 and CI would amount to 100 + 120 + 144
= 364). Since, we need a difference of only  48 we can realize that the value should be 3/4
th of 500. Hence, 375 is correct

1500

1300

2500

1000

Ans .

1500 

1. Explanation :
Based on the information we have, we can say that there would have been  30 extra interest per year. For 2% of the principal to be equal to  30, the principal amount should be  1500

### Problems

Q. Find the simple interest on Rs. 3000 at rate of interest 6 1/4% for 73 days

A. 73 days = 73/365 = 1/5 yrs.

SI = (3000 * 25/4 * 1/5) / 100

Q. An amount loaned at interest rate 13.5% per annum becomes Rs. 2502.50 after 4 years. Find the sum.

A. P + SI = P + P * 13.5 * 4 / 100 (Adding P on both sides)

2502.5 = P ( 1 + 54/100)

2502.5 = P (1.54)

P = 2502.5 / 1.54 = 1625

Q. A borrowed money at interest rate 6% for first two years, 9% for next three years and 14% for period beyond 5 years. If he pays a total interest of Rs. 11400 after 9 yrs how much did he borrow?

A. 11400 = (P *6*2/100) + (P*9*3/100) + (P*14*4/100)

11400 = (12+27+56)P / 100

11400 * 100 / 95 = P

P = 12000

Q. A certain sum of money amounts to Rs 1008 in 2 years and Rs. 1164 in 3.5 yrs.Find sum and RI

A. SI for 1.5 yrs = 1164 - 1008 = 156

SI for 1 yrs = 156 * 2 / 3 = 104 and two years = 208.

Principal = 1008 - 208 = 800

Use simple interest formula to get RI.

Q. A sum of 1500 is lent in 2 parts where one is at 8% and second is at 6%. If the total annual income is Rs. 106, find money lent at each rate.

A. (x*1*8/100) + ((1500-x) * 1 * 6 / 100 ) = 106

8x/100 + (9000 - 6x)/100 = 106

8x +9000 - 6x = 10600

2x = 1600

x=800

### Compound Interest

When P = principal, n = years and R = rate of interest compounded annually

The Amount = P (1+R/100)^n

When P = principal, R = rate of interest compounded half yearly the
Amount = P ( 1 + (R/2) / 100)^2nWhen P = principal, R = rate of interest compounded quarterly the
Amount = P ( 1 + (R/4) / 100)^4nWhen P = principal, R = rate of interest compounded annually but the time is in fraction then like 3 2/5 yrs
Amount = P ( 1 + R / 100)^3 * (1 + (2R/5)/100)

When P = principal, R = rate of interest compounded annually but is different for first year R1, second year R2 and third year R3 then
Amount = P ( 1 + R1 / 100) * ( 1 + R2 / 100) * ( 1 + R3 / 100)

Present worth of Rs. x due n years hence is
Present worth = x / (1 + R/100)^n

### Solved Problems

Q. Find CI on Rs.7500, compounded annually at RI of 4% for 2 years.

A. Amount = 7500 * (1 + 4/100)^2

Then amount - 7500 gives CI.

Q. CI is compounded half yearly, principal = Rs. 10000 in rate 4% for 2 years.

A.  Amount = 10000( 1+ 2/100)^4

Amount = 10824.32

CI = Amount - principal = 10824.32 - 10000 = 824.32

Q. Difference between SI and CI accrued on an amount of Rs. 18000 in 2 years is Rs.405. What is the RI.

A. P( 1+ (R/100) )^n - P*R*T/100 = 405

{18000 ( 1 + (R/100))^2 - 18000}  - (18000 * R * 2 / 100) = 405

Solving this you can get R.

Q. Divide 1301 between A and B such that the amount of A after 7 years is equal to amount in B after 9 years. Interest is compounded at 4%.

A. Let the amount be 'x' and 1301 - x.

x(1+4/100)^7 = (1301-x)(1+4/100)^9

Solving this we can get 'x'.

Q. A sum of money amounts to Rs.6690 after 3 years and Rs. 10035 after 6 years on CI. Find the sum.

A. P(1+R/100)^3 = 6690 ; P(1+R/100)^6 = 10035

Dividing first eqn by second eqn we get (1+R/100)^3 = 10035/6690 = 3/2

Substituting this value in first equation we get P = 6690 * 2 / 3 = 4460.

Q. A sum doubles itself in 9 years how many will it take to become 8 times.

A. P(1+R/100)^9 = 2P

(1+R/100)^9 = 2

Now finding P(1+R/100)^n = 8P

we need to get (1 + R/100)^n = 8 but 8 = 2^3

(1+R/100)^n = (1 + R/100)^ 9 ^3

we know that A^b^c = A^b*c

so (1+R/100)^n = (1 + R/100)^ 9*3 = (1 + R/100)^27

n = 27
