### Question 1

An amount of Rs. 2143 is split into two parts. The first part is invested @8% for 6 years, and the second @6% for 8 years. What is the ratio of the first part is to the second part if they yield the same amount of simple interest?

**A**

1.

**B**

$1{1/48}$.

**C**

${47/48}$.

**D**

$1{1/24}$.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the amounts be x and y. We have x × r_{1} × t_{1} = y × r_{2} × t_{2}. We can see that x : y is same as r_{2}t_{2} : r_{1}t_{1}. The ratio is (6 × 8) : (8 × 6) = 48 : 48, or same as 1. *Please note that the answer is independent of the value of the total amount.*
