Question 1.
Calculate the amount and compound interest on
(a) Rs. 10,800 for 3 years 12$$\frac{1}{2}$$% per annum compounded annually.
(b) Rs. 18,000 for 2$$\frac{1}{2}$$ years at 10% per annum compounded annually.
(c) Rs. 62,500 for 1$$\frac{1}{2}$$ years at 8% per annum compounded half-yearly.
(d) Rs. 8,000 for 1 year at 9% per annum compounded half-yearly.
(You could use the year-by-year calculation using SI formula to verify).
(e) Rs. 10,000 for 1 year at 8% per annum compounded half-yearly.
Solution:
(a) P = Rs. 10,800
Time = 3 years
R = 12$$\frac{1}{2}$$% = $$\frac{25}{2}$$% (p.a)
A = $$P\left(1+\frac{R}{100}\right)^{T}$$
= $$10800\left(1+\frac{25}{200}\right)^{3}$$
= $$10800 \times \frac{9}{8} \times \frac{9}{8} \times \frac{9}{8}$$
= Rs. 15377.34
C.I. = A – P
= 15,377.34 – 10,800
= Rs. 4,577.34 (b) P = Rs. 18,000
R = 10% (p.a)
T = 2$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{5}{2}$$ years
A = $$\mathrm{P}\left(1+\frac{\mathrm{R}}{100}\right)^{\mathrm{T}}$$
= $$18000\left(1+\frac{10}{100}\right)^{\frac{5}{2}}$$
First calculate amount of 2 year then S.I. for $$\frac{1}{2}$$ year
A = $$18000\left(1+\frac{10}{100}\right)^{2}$$
= $$18000 \times \frac{110}{100} \times \frac{110}{100}$$
= 18 × 1210
= Rs. 21780
The amount of Rs. 21,780 is principal for next year
Hence, P = Rs. 21,780
Time = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ year
Rate = 10% (p.a)
SI = $$\frac{21780 \times 10 \times 1}{2 \times 100}$$ = 1089
C.I. for 2 years = A – P
= 21780 – 18000
= 3780
S.I. = Rs. 1089
Total Interest = 3780 + 1089 = Rs. 4869
Amount = 18000 + 4869 = Rs. 22,869

(c) P = Rs. 62,500
Time = $$\frac{3}{2}$$ years
= $$\frac{3}{2}$$ × 2
= 3 (half yearly)
R = 8% (p.a)
= $$\frac{8}{2}$$%
= 4% (half-yearly)
A = $$\mathrm{P}\left(1+\frac{\mathrm{R}}{100}\right)^{\mathrm{T}}$$
= $$62500\left(1+\frac{4}{100}\right)^{3}$$
= $$62500 \times \frac{104}{100} \times \frac{104}{100} \times \frac{104}{100}$$
= Rs. 70304
∴ Compound Interest = A – P
= 70304 – 62500
= Rs. 7804 (d) P = Rs. 8000
Time = 1 year = 1 × 2 = 2 (half-yearly)
Rate = 9% (p.a)
= $$\frac{9}{2}$$% (half-yearly)
A = $$8000\left(1+\frac{9}{2 \times 100}\right)^{2}$$
= $$8000 \times \frac{209}{100} \times \frac{209}{100}$$
= Rs. 8736.20
C.I. = A – P
= Rs. 8736.20 – 8000
= Rs. 736.20

(e) P = Rs. 10,000
Time = 1 year or 1 × 2 = 2 (half-yearly)
Rate = 8% p.a. or $$\frac{8}{2}$$ = 4% (half-year)
= $$10,000\left(1+\frac{4}{100}\right)^{2}$$
= $$10,000 \times \frac{26}{25} \times \frac{26}{25}$$
= Rs. 10816
C.I. = A. – P.
= 10816 – 10,000
= Rs. 816 Question 2.
Kamla borrowed Rs. 26,400 from a Bank to buy a scooter at a rate of 15% p.a. compounded yearly. What amount will she pay at the end of 2 years and 4 months to clear the loan?
Solution:
P = Rs. 26,400
R = 15% p.a.
Time = 2 years 4 months
Calculate amount for 2 years that take the amount as principal
A = $$P\left(1+\frac{R}{100}\right)^{T}$$
= $$26,400\left(1+\frac{15}{100}\right)^{2}$$
= $$26,400 \times \frac{115}{100} \times \frac{115}{100}$$
= Rs. 34914
Now, amount of Rs. 34914 is principal for the next 4 months or $$\frac{4}{12}=\frac{1}{3}$$ year.
∴ SI = $$\frac{\mathrm{P} \times \mathrm{R} \times \mathrm{T}}{100}$$
= $$\frac{34,914 \times 15 \times 1}{100 \times 3}$$
= Rs. 1745.70
A = P + S.I.
= 34914 + 1740.70
= Rs. 36,659.70

Question 3.
Fabina borrows Rs. 12,500 at 12% per annum for 3 years at simple interest and Radha, borrows the same amount for the same time period at 10% per annum, compounded annually. Who pays more interest and by how much?
Solution:
Fabina borrows = Rs. 12,500
R = 12% p.a.
T = 3 years
Since, Fabina borrowed this amount at S.I.
SI = $$\frac{\mathrm{P} \times \mathrm{R} \times \mathrm{T}}{100}$$
= $$\frac{12500 \times 12 \times 3}{100}$$
= Rs. 4500
Radha borrowed the amount at compound Interest
Rate = 10%
P = Rs. 12500
T = 3 years
= $$P\left(1-\frac{R}{100}\right)^{T}$$
= $$12500\left(1+\frac{10}{100}\right)^{3}$$
= $$12500 \times \frac{110}{100} \times \frac{110}{100} \times \frac{110}{100}$$
= Rs. 16637.50
CI = A – P
= 16637.50 – 12500
= Rs. 4137.50
Difference in the interest of both
= 4500 – 4137.50
= Rs. 362.50 Question 4.
I borrowed Rs. 12,000 from Jamshed at 6% per annum simple interest for 2 years. Had I borrowed this sum at 6% per annum compound interest, what extra amount would I have to pay?
Solution:
P = Rs. 12,000
R = 6% p.a.
T = 2 years
Since the amount is borrowed at S.I.
∴ SI = $$\frac{\mathrm{P} \times \mathrm{R} \times \mathrm{T}}{100}$$
= $$\frac{12000 \times 6 \times 2}{100}$$
= Rs. 1440
If it is borrowed at Compound Interest
A = $$P\left(1+\frac{R}{100}\right)^{T}$$
= $$12000\left(1+\frac{6}{100}\right)^{2}$$
= $$12000 \times \frac{106}{100} \times \frac{106}{100}$$
= Rs. 13,483.20
C.I = A – P
= 13,483.20 – 12000.00
= Rs. 1483.20
Difference in C.I. and S.I. = 1483.20 – 1440.00
= Rs. 43.20

Question 5.
Vasudevan invested Rs. 60,000 at an interest rate of 12% per annum compounded half yearly. What amount would he get
(i) After 6 months?
(ii) After 1 year?
Solution:
(i) P = Rs. 60,000
R = 12% p.a. = $$\frac{12}{2}$$ = 6% (half-yearly)
T = 6 months = 1 (half year)
A = $$\mathbf{P}\left(1+\frac{\mathbf{R}}{100}\right)^{\mathrm{T}}$$
= $$60000\left(1+\frac{6}{100}\right)^{1}$$
= $$60000 \times \frac{106}{100}$$
= 600 × 106
= Rs. 63600

(ii) When Time = 1 year = 1 × 2 = 2 (half years)
A = $$P\left(1+\frac{R}{100}\right)^{T}$$
= $$60,000\left(1+\frac{6}{100}\right)^{2}$$
= $$60000 \times \frac{106}{100}$$
= Rs. 67416 Question 6.
Arif took a loan ofRs. 80,000 from a bank. If the rate of interest is 10% per annum, find the difference in amounts he would be paying after 1$$\frac{1}{2}$$ years if the interest is
(i) compounded annually.
(ii) compounded half yearly.
Solution:
(i) P = Rs. 80,000
R = 10% p.a.
Time = 1$$\frac{1}{2}$$ = 1 year and $$\frac{1}{2}$$ year
A = $$\mathbf{P}\left(1+\frac{\mathrm{R}}{100}\right)^{\mathrm{T}}$$
= $$80,000\left(1+\frac{10}{100}\right)^{1}$$
= 80,000 × $$\frac{110}{100}$$
= 800 × 110
= Rs. 88000
The amount is principal for next year
SI = $$\frac{P \times R \times T}{100}$$
= $$\frac{88000 \times 10 \times 1}{100 \times 2}$$
= Rs. 4400
Amount = 88,000 + 4400 = Rs. 92,400

(ii) If the interest is calculated half-yearly
Time = 1$$\frac{1}{2}$$ (p.a.)
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 2
= 3 (half yearly)
Rate = 10% p.a. = $$\frac{10}{2}$$ = 5% (half yearly)
A = $$80,000\left(1+\frac{5}{100}\right)^{2}$$
= $$80,000 \times \frac{105}{100} \times \frac{105}{100} \times \frac{105}{100}$$
= $$\frac{8 \times 105 \times 105 \times 105}{100}$$
= 2 × 21 × 21 × 105
= Rs. 92610
Difference in amount = 92610 – 92400 = Rs. 210

Question 7.
Maria invested Rs. 8,000 in a business. She would be paid interest at 5% per annum compounded annually. Find
(i) The amount credited against her name at the end of the second year.
(ii) The interest for the 3rd year.
Solution:
(i) P = Rs. 8,000
R = 5% (p.a.)
Time = 2 years
A = $$\mathrm{P}\left(1+\frac{\mathrm{R}}{100}\right)^{\mathrm{T}}$$
= $$8000\left(1+\frac{5}{100}\right)^{2}$$
= $$8000 \times \frac{21}{20} \times \frac{21}{20}$$
= Rs. 8820
∴ Amount credited in Maria name after 2 years = Rs. 8820

(ii) If time = 3 years
= $$8000\left(1+\frac{5}{100}\right)^{3}$$
= $$80000 \times \frac{21}{20} \times \frac{21}{20} \times \frac{21}{20}$$
= Rs. 9261
Interest for 3rd year = Amount of 3 years – Amount of 2 years
= 9261 – 8820
= Rs. 441 Question 8.
Find the amount and the compound interest on Rs. 10,000 for 1$$\frac{1}{2}$$ years at 10% per annum, compounded half-yearly. Would this interest be more than the interest he would get if it was compounded annually?
Solution:
P = Rs. 10,000
Time = $$\frac{3}{2}$$ years
= $$\frac{3}{2}$$ × 2
= 3 (half year)
R = 10% (p.a.) = $$\frac{10}{2}$$ = 5 (half year)
A = $$P\left(1+\frac{R}{100}\right)^{T}$$
= $$10,000\left(1+\frac{5}{100}\right)^{3}$$
= $$10000 \times \frac{21}{20} \times \frac{21}{20} \times \frac{21}{20}$$
= Rs. 11,576.25
C.I. = A – P
= 11576.25 – 10,000
= Rs. 1576.25
If the interest is calculated compounded annually then
P = Rs. 10,000
Time = $$\frac{3}{2}$$ years = 1$$\frac{1}{2}$$ years = 1 year and $$\frac{1}{2}$$ year
R = 10% p.a.
A = $$10,000\left(1+\frac{10}{100}\right)$$
= $$10,000 \times \frac{110}{100}$$
= Rs. 11,000
The amount is principal for next time period
S.I = $$\frac{11000 \times 10 \times 1}{100 \times 2}$$ = Rs. 550
Amount = 11000 + 550 = Rs. 11,550
C.I. = A – P
= Rs. 11,550 – 11,000
= Rs. 550
Yes the interest would be more when compounded half-yearly than it is calculated yearly.

Question 9.
Find the amount which Ram will get on Rs. 4096, if he gave it for 18 months at 12$$\frac{1}{2}$$% per annum, interest compounded half-yearly.
Solution:
P = Rs. 4096
Time = 18 months 3 (half-yearly)
R = $$\frac{25}{2}$$% p.a.
= $$\frac{25}{2 \times 2}$$
= $$\frac{25}{4}$$% (half-yearly)
A = $$\mathbf{P}\left(1+\frac{\mathbf{R}}{100}\right)^{\mathbf{T}}$$
= $$4096\left(1+\frac{25}{4 \times 100}\right)^{3}$$
= $$4096 \times \frac{17}{16} \times \frac{17}{16} \times \frac{17}{16}$$
= Rs. 4913 Question 10.
The population of a place increased to 54,000 in 2003 at a rate of 5% per annum.
(i) find the population in 2001
(ii) what would be its population in 2005?
Solution:
(i) Population in 2003 = 54000
Rate of increase in population = 5% (p.a.)
Let the population in 2001 = x
Since population increases compoundedly
∴ 54000 = $$x\left(1+\frac{5}{100}\right)^{2}$$
54000 = $$x \times \frac{21}{20} \times \frac{21}{20}$$
x = $$54000 \times \frac{21}{20} \times \frac{21}{20}$$
∴ x = 48979.59
Hence it was 48980 in 2001

(ii) Population in 2005 i.e. after 2 years = 54000 × $$\left(1+\frac{5}{100}\right)^{2}$$
= $$54000 \times \frac{21}{20} \times \frac{21}{20}$$
= 59535

Question 11.
In a Laboratory, the count of bacteria in a certain experiment was increasing at the rate of 2.5% per hour. Find the bacteria at the end of 2 hours if the count was initially 5,06,000.
Solution:
Starting count of bacteria 5,06,000
Rate of increase = 2.5% (half-hour)
Time = 2 hour
Bacteria count after 2 hours
= 5,06,000 $$\left(1+\frac{2.5}{100}\right)^{2}$$
= $$5,06,000 \times \frac{102.5}{100} \times \frac{102.5}{100}$$
= 531616.25 or 531616 (approx.) Question 12.
A scooter was bought at Rs. 42,000. Its value depreciated at the rate of 8% per annum. Find its value after one year.
Solution:
Initial value = 42,000
Value depreciate = 8% (p.a)
Time = 1 year
Final value after 1 year = 42,000 $$\left(1-\frac{8}{100}\right)$$
= 42,000 × $$\frac{92}{100}$$
= 38,640
