­SIMPLE INTEREST

 

 IMPORTANT FACTS AND FORMULAE

1.. Principal: The money borrowed or lent out for a certain period is called the

principal or the sum.

  1. 2. Interest: Extra money paid for using other’s money is called
  2. Simple Interest (S.I.) : If the interest on a sum borrowed for a certain period is reckoned uniformly, then it is called simple interest.

Let Principal = P, Rate = R% per annum (p.a.) and Time = T years. Then,

  • I. = (P*R*T )/100

  (ii)        P=(100*S.I)/(R*T) ;R=(100*S.I)/(P*T) and T=(100*S.I)/(P*R)

 

 

 

SOLVED EXAMPLES

 

Ex. 1. Find the simple interest on Rs. 68,000 at 16 2/3% per annum for 9 months.

                                                                              

                                          

Sol.  P = Rs.68000,R = 50/3% p.a and T = 9/12 years  = 3/4years.

 

      \  S.I. = (P*R*T)/100 = Rs.(68,000*(50/3)*(3/4)*(1/100))= Rs.8500

 

Ex. 2. Find the simple interest on Rs. 3000 at 6 1/4% per annum for the period from

4th Feb., 2005 to 18th April, 2005.

 

Sol. Time = (24+31+18)days = 73 days = 73/365 years = 1/5 years.

 

         P = Rs.3000 and R = 6 ¼ %p.a = 25/4%p.a

        \S.I. = Rs.(3,000*(25/4)*(1/5)*(1/100))= Rs.37.50.

 

Remark : The day on which money is deposited is not counted while the day on which money is withdrawn is counted .

 

Ex. 3. A sum at simple interests at 13 ½ % per annum amounts to Rs.2502.50 after 4 years find the sum.

 

Sol.  Let sum be Rs. x then , S.I.=Rs.(x*(27/2) *4*(1/100) ) = Rs.27x/50

        \amount = (Rs. x+(27x/50)) = Rs.77x/50

        \ 77x/50 = 2502.50 Û x = 2502.50 * 50    = 1625

                                                             77

         Hence , sum = Rs.1625.

 

Ex. 4. A sum of Rs. 800 amounts to Rs. 920 in 8 years at simple intere

interest rate is increased by 8%, it would amount to bow mucb ?

Sol. S.l. = Rs. (920 – 800) = Rs. 120; p = Rs. 800, T = 3 yrs. _

     . R = ((100 x 120)/(800*3) ) % = 5%.

       New rate = (5 + 3)% = 8%.

       New S.l. = Rs. (800*8*3)/100 = Rs. 192.

:      New amount = Rs.(800+192) = Rs. 992.

 

Ex. 5. Adam borrowed some money at the rate of 6% p.a. for the first two years , at  the rate of 9% p.a. for the next three years , and at the rate of 14% p.a. for the period beyond five years. 1£ he pays a total interest of Rs. 11, 400 at the end of nine years how much money did he borrow ?

 

Sol. Let the sum borrowed be x. Then,

 

(x*2*6)/100 + (x*9*3)/100 + (x*14*4)/100 = 11400

Û  (3x/25 + 27x/100 + 14x / 25) = 11400       Û 95x/100 = 11400 Û x = (11400*100)/95 = 12000.

 

Hence , sum  borrowed = Rs.12,000.

 

Ex. 6. A certain sum of money amounts to Rs. 1008 in 2 years and to Rs.1164 in 3 ½ years. Find the sum and rate of interests.

 

Sol.. S.I. for 1 ½ years = Rs.(1164-1008) = Rs.156.

          S.l. for 2 years = Rs.(156*(2/3)*2)=Rs.208

 

          Principal = Rs. (1008 – 208) = Rs. 800.

 

          Now, P = 800, T = 2 and S.l. = 208.

 

         Rate =(100* 208)/(800*2)% = 13%

 

Ex. 7. At what rate percent per annum will a sum of money double in 16 years.

 

           Sol.. Let principal = P. Then, S.l. = P and T = 16 yrs.

 

                    \Rate = (100 x P)/(P*16)% = 6 ¼ % p.a.         

 

Ex. 8. The simple interest on a sum of money is 4/9 of the principal .Find the rate percent and time, if both are numerically equal.

                                                                     

         Sol. Let sum = Rs. x. Then, S.l. = Rs. 4x/9

 

               Let rate = R% and time = R years.

 

               Then, (x*R*R)/100=4x/9 or R2 =400/9 or R = 20/3 = 6 2/3.

 

               \Rate = 6 2/3 %   and Time = 6 2/3 years = 6 years 8 months.

 

Ex. 9. The simple interest on a certain sum of money for 2 l/2 years at 12% per

annum  is Rs. 40 less tban the simple interest on the same sum for 3 ½  years at 10% per annum. Find the sum.

 

        Sol.  Let the sum be Rs. x Then, ((x*10*7)/(100*2)) – ( (x*12*5)/(100*2)) = 40                     

                 Û (7x/20)-(3x/10)=40      

                Ûx = (40 * 20) = 800.

 

             Hence, the sum is Rs. 800.

 

Ex. 10. A sum was put at simple interest at a certain rate for 3 years. Had it been

put at 2% higher rate, it would have fetched Rs. 360 more. Find the sum.

                     

      Sol. Let sum = P and original rate = R.

             Then, [ (P*(R+2)*3)/100] – [ (P*R*3)/100] = 360.

 

        Û 3PR + 6P – 3PR = 36000 Û 6P=36000 Û P=6000

 

             Hence, sum = Rs. 6000.

 

Ex. 11. What annual instalment will discharge a debt of Rs. 1092 due in 3 years

at 12% simple interest?

                           .

    Sol . Let each Instalment be Rs. x

            Then, ( x+ ((x*12*1)/100)) + (x+ ((x*12*2)/100) ) + x = 1092

        Û ((28x/25) + (31x/25) + x) = 1092   Û (28x+31x+25x)=(1092*25)

       Û x= (1092*25)/84 = Rs.325.  

 

        \ Each instalment = Rs. 325.

 

Ex. 12. A sum of Rs. 1550 is lent out into two parts, one at 8% and another one at

6%. If the total annual income is Rs. 106, find the money lent at each rate.

                                                                                                     

    Sol. Let the sum lent at 8% be Rs. x and that at 6% be Rs. (1550 – x).

      \((x*8*1)/100) + ((1550-x)*6*1)/100=106

     Û8x + 9300 –6x=10600 Û 2x = 1300  Û x = 650.

     \ Money lent at 8% = Rs. 650. Money lent at 6% = Rs. (1550 – 650) = Rs. 900.
