1. What sum invested for 2 years at 14% compounded annually will grow to Rs. 5458.32?
1. 4120
2. 3300
3. 4200
4. 4420

Explanation :-
P(1+R/100)^5458.32
P(1+14/100)5458.32
P(114/100)5458.32
= (5458.32×100×100)/(114×114)
P = (47.88×100×100) / 114 0.42×100×100 4200

2. If the difference between the simple interest and compound interests on some principal amount at 20% for 3 years is Rs. 48, then the principal amount is
1. Rs. 365
2. Rs. 325
3. Rs. 395
4. Rs. 375

Explanation :-

Amount (for compound interest compounded annually) P(1+R/100)^T
Amount (compounded annually)  x(1+20/100)^3
Amount = x(120/100)x(6/5)^3
Compound Interest = [x(6/5)^3]
Compound Interest = [(6/5)^31[(216/125) 1(91x/125)
Simple Interest = (P*R*T)/100 = (× 20 × 3) / 100=(3x)/5
Difference Between CI & SI = Rs. 48
i.e.  [(91x)/125] – [(3x)/5] = 48
(91x/125) − (3x/5) 48
(91x75x)/125 48
16x/125=48
x=(48×125)/16 3×125 Rs. 375

3. Andrews earns an interest of Rs. 1596 for the third year and Rs. 1400 for the second year on the same sum. Find the rate of interest if it is lent at compound interest.
1. 12%
2. 13%
3. 14%
4. 15%

Explanation :-

SI for 1 Year = 1596 – 1400 =Rs. 196
R=(SI×100)/(PT) = (100×196)/(1400×1) 196/14 14%
