**1. Pramod deposits Rs 600 per month in a Recurring Deposit Account for 4 years. If the rate of interest is 8% per year; calculate the maturity value of his account.**

**Solution: **

Given,

Installment per month (P) = Rs 600

Number of months (n) = 48

Rate of interest (r) = 8% p.a.

So,

_{}

S.I = Rs 4,704

Hence,

The amount that Pramod will be getting at the time of maturity is

= Rs (600 x 48) + Rs 4,704

= Rs 28,800 + Rs 4,704

= Rs 33,504

**2. Ritu has a Recurring Deposit Account in a bank and depositsÂ Rs 80 per month for 18 months. Find the rate of interest paid by the bank if the maturity value of account isÂ Rs 1,554.**

**Solution:**

Given,

Installment per month (P) = Rs 80

Number of months (n) = 18

Let rate of interest (r) = r % p.a.

_{}

S.I = 11.4r

Hence, the amount at the time of maturity will be = Rs (80 x 18) + Rs (11.4r)

And given maturity value = Rs 1,554

So, on equating

Rs (80 x 18) + Rs (11.4r) = Rs 1,554

11.4r = Rs 1,554 â€“ Rs 1,440

r = 114/ 11.4 = 10 %

Therefore, the rate of interest paid by the bank is 10 %

**3. The maturity value of a R.D. Account isÂ Rs 16,176. If the monthly installment isÂ Rs 400 and the rate of interest is 8%; find the time (period) of this R.D Account.**

**Solution: **

Given,

Installment per month (P) = Rs 400

Let the time, number of months (n) = n

Rate of interest (r) = 8 % p.a.

_{}

So, at the time of maturity the value will be = Rs (400 x n)+ Rs 4n(n + 1)/3

And, given maturity value = Rs 16,176

So, on equating

Rs (400x n) + 4n(n + 1)/3 = Rs 16,176

1200n +4n^{2 }+ 4n = Rs 48,528

4n^{2 }+ 1204n = Rs 48,528

n^{2 }+ 301n â€“ 12132 = 0

(n + 337)(n – 36) = 0

n = -337 (not considered as time cannot be negative) or n = 36

Therefore, the number of months (time) = 36 months = 3years

**4. Mr. Bajaj needs Rs 30,000 after 2 years. What least money (in multiple of Rs 5) must he deposit every month in a recurring deposit account to get required money after 2 years, the rate of interest being 8% p.a.?**

**Solution: **

Letâ€™s assume the installment per month to be Rs P

Number of months (n) = 24

Rate of interest = 8% p.a.

So,

_{}

S.I = Rs 2P

Thus,

The amount at maturity will be = Rs (P x 24) + Rs 2P = Rs 26P

And, given maturity value = Rs30,000

So, on equating

Rs 26P = Rs 30,000

P = 30,000/ 26

P = Rs 1,153.84 = Rs 1,155(multiple of 5)

**5. Mr. Richard has a recurring deposit account in a post office for 3 years at 7.5 % p.a. simple interest. If he getsÂ Rs. 8,325 as interest at the time of maturity, find:**

**(i)Â the monthly instalment**

**(ii)Â the amount of maturity**

**Solution: **

Letâ€™s assume the monthly installment be Rs P

Interest over the period =Â Rs. 8,325

Rate of interest = 7.5%

Time = 3 years = 36 months

(i)

Therefore, the monthly installment is Rs 2,000

(ii)

Therefore, the amount of maturity is Rs 80,325
