Kamala borrowed Rs 26400 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?
(Hint: Find A for 2 years with interest is compounded yearly and then find SI on the 2nd year amount for years.)
Principal (P) = Rs 26,400
Rate (R) = 15% per annum
Number of years (n) =
The amount for 2 years and 4 months can be calculated by first calculating the amount for 2 years using the compound interest formula, and then calculating the simple interest for 4 months on the amount obtained at the end of 2 years.
Firstly, the amount for 2 years has to be calculated.
By taking Rs 34,914 as principal, the S.I. for the nextwill be calculated.
Interest for the first two years = Rs (34914 − 26400) = Rs 8,514
And interest for the nextyear = Rs 1,745.70
Total C.I. = Rs (8514 + Rs 1745.70) = Rs 10,259.70
Amount = P + C.I. = Rs 26400 + Rs 10259.70 = Rs 36,659.70
