### Question 1

How much interest does an amount of Rs. 8000000 earn @3% compounded annually for 3 years?

### Question 2

What is the amount receivable on Rs. 2000000 after 9 months, invested at a rate of 28% compounded quarterly?

**A**

Rs. 2450086.

**B**

Rs. 2450186.

**C**

Rs. 2449986.

**D**

Rs. 2450286.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

In this case r = $28/4$% and n = 3 because compounding is quarterly, and in 9 months there are three quarters. So A = 2000000 × $(1 + 7/100)^3$, which equals 2 × 107 × 107 × 107, i.e., Rs. 2450086.

### Question 3

The interest earned by an amount of Rs. 90000 @5% compounded annually is Rs. 9225. What is the period in years?

### Question 4

### Question 5

A bank offers an interest rate of 5% compounded annually. Initially I deposit Rs. 50000 in the bank under this scheme. After 1 year I again deposit Rs 50000. What is the total amount that I will get after 2 years?

**A**

Rs. 107625.

**B**

Rs. 107725.

**C**

Rs. 107525.

**D**

Rs. 107825.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let P, A, r and n have their usual meanings. For the first deposit n = 2, and for the second deposit n = 1. So total amount is P × $((1 + r/100)^2 + (1 + r/100))$ = $P/10000$ × $((100 + r)^2 + 100(100 + r))$ = $P/10000 × (100 + r)$ × $(100 + r + 100)$ which equals ${P × (100 + r) × (200 + r)}/10000.$ Putting r = 5 and P = 50000 and cancelling 10000, we get 5 × 105 × 205 = Rs. 107625.
