Practice Set 14.1 Page No: 90

**1. Find the amount and the compound interest. **

**Solution: **

(1) Here we have, P = â‚¹ 2000; R = 5 %; N = 2 years

= 2000 (105/100)^{2}

= 2000 (21/20)^{2}

= 2205

So, the compound interest after 2 years will be

I = Amount â€“ Principal

= Rs 2205 â€“ Rs 2000

= Rs 205

Therefore, the amount is Rs 2205 and compound interest is Rs 205.

(2) Here we have, P = â‚¹ 5000; R = 8 %; N = 3 years

= 5000 (108/100)^{3}

= 5000 (27/25)^{3}

= 6298.56

So, the compound interest after 3 years will be

I = Amount â€“ Principal

= Rs 6298.56 â€“ Rs 5000

= Rs 1298.56

Therefore, the amount is Rs 6298.56 and compound interest is Rs 1298.56.

(3) Here we have, P = â‚¹ 4000; R = 7.5 %; N = 2 years

= 4000(1075/1000)^{2}

= 4000(43/40)^{2}

= 4622.50

So, the compound interest after 2 years will be

I = Amount â€“ Principal

= Rs 4622.50 â€“ Rs 4000

= Rs 622.50

Therefore, the amount is Rs 4622.50 and compound interest is Rs 622.50.

**2. Sameerrao has taken a loan of Rs 12500 at a rate of 12 p.c.p.a. for 3 years. If the interest is compounded annually then how many rupees should he pay to clear his loan?**

**Solution: **

Here we have, P = â‚¹ 12500; R = 12 %; N = 3 years

= 12500 (28/25)^{3}

= 17561.60

Therefore, Sameerrao should pay an amount of Rs 17561.60 to clear his loan.

**3. To start a business Shalaka has taken a loan of Rs 8000 at a rate of 10 Â½ p.c.p.a. After two years how much compound interest will she have to pay?**

**Solution: **

Here we have, P = â‚¹ 8000; R = 101212Â %; N = 2 years

= 8000 (221/200)^{2}

= 9768.20

So, the compound interest after 2 years will be

I = Amount â€“ Principal

= Rs 9768.20 â€“ Rs 8000

= Rs 1768.20

Therefore, Shalaka will have to pay a compound interest of Rs 1768.20 after 2 years.

Practice Set 14.2 Page No: 93

**1. On the construction work of a flyover bridge there were 320 workers initially. The number of workers were increased by 25% every year. Find the number of workers after 2 years.**

**Solution: **

From the given information,

Here we have, P = Number of workers initially = 320

A = Number of workers after 2 years

R = Rate of increase of number of workers per year = 25 %

N = 2 years

So,

= 320 (5/4)^{2}

= 500

Therefore, the number of workers after 2 years is 500.

**2. A shepherd has 200 sheep with him. Find the number of sheeps with him after 3 years if the increase in number of sheeps is 8% every year.**

**Solution: **

From the given information,

Here we have, P = Number of sheeps initially = 200

A = Number of sheeps after 3 years

R = Rate of increase of number of sheeps per year = 8 %

N = 3 years

So,

= 200 (27/25)^{3}

= 251.94 ~ 252

Therefore, the number of sheeps after 3 years is 252.

**3. In a forest there are 40,000 trees. Find the expected number of trees after 3 years if the objective is to increase the number at the rate 5% per year.**

**Solution: **

From the given information,

Here we have, P = Number of trees initially = 40,000

A = Number of trees after 3 years

R = Rate of increase of number of trees per year = 5 %

N = 3 years

So,

= 40000 (21/20)^{3}

= 46305

Therefore, the expected number of trees after 3 years is 46,305.

**4. The cost price of a machine is 2,50,000. If the rate of depreciation is 10% per year find the depreciation in price of the machine after two years.**

**Solution: **

From the given information,

Here we have, P = Cost price of the machine = 2,50,000

A = Cost price after 2 years

I = Depreciation in price after 2 years

R = Rate of depreciation = 10 %

N = 2 years

So,

= 250000(9/10)^{2}

= 202500

Also, the interest is

I = P âˆ’ A

Â = Rs 250000 â€“ Rs 202500

Â = Rs 47500

Therefore, the depreciation in price of the machine after two years is Rs 47,500.

**5. Find the compound interest if the amount of a certain principal after two years is Rs 4036.80 at the rate of 16 p.c.p.a.**

**Solution: **

From the given information,

Here we have,

P = Principal

A = â‚¹ 4036.80

I = Compound Interest

R = 16 %

N = 2 years

So,

Now, the interest is

I = A âˆ’ P

Â = 4036.80 âˆ’ 3000

Â = 1036.80

Therefore, the compound interest isÂ â‚¹ 1036.80

**6. A loan of Rs 15000 was taken on compound interest. If the rate of compound interest is 12 p.c.p.a. find the amount to settle the loan after 3 years.**

**Solution: **

From the given information,

Here we have, P = Principal = â‚¹ 15000

A = Amount

R = 12 %

N = 3 years

So, the amount

= 15000 (28/25)^{3}

= 21073.92

Therefore, the amount to settle the loan isÂ â‚¹ 21073.92

**7. A principal amounts to Rs 13924 in 2 years by compound interest at 18 p.c.p.a. Find the principal.**

**Solution: **

From the given information,

Here we have, P = Principal

A = â‚¹ 13924

R = 18 %

N = 2 years

We know that, the amount is

13924 = P (59/50)^{2}

P = (13924 x 50 x 50)/ (59 x 59)

â‡’ P = 10000

Therefore, the principal is Rs 10000.

**8. The population of a suburb is 16000. Find the rate of increase in the population if the population after two years is 17640.**

**Solution: **

From the given information,

Here we have, P = Population of a suburb = 16000

A = Population after two years =17640

R = R %

N = 2 years

We know that, the amount is given by

R/100 = 21/20 â€“ 1

R/100 = 1/20

â‡’ R = 5

Therefore, the rate of increase in the population is 5 p.c.p.a.

**9. In how many years Rs 700 will amount to Rs 847 at a compound interest rate of 10 p.c.p.a.**

**Solution: **

From the given information,

Here we have, P = Principal = â‚¹ 700

A = Amount = â‚¹ 847

R = 10 %

N = N years

We know that, the amount is given by

â‡’ N = 2

Therefore, the numbers of years is 2 years.

**10. Find the difference between simple interest and compound interest on Rs 20000 at 8 p.c.p.a.**

**Solution: **

Given,

P = Principal = â‚¹ 20000

R = 8 %

As the time is not given, the question is solved by taking time as 2 years, because simple interest and compound interest will be same for one year.

N = 2 years

So, the compound interest = Rs 23328 â€“ Rs 20000 = Rs 3328

Now, comparing compound interest and simple interest we have

â‡’ Compound interest â€“ Simple interest = Rs 3328 â€“ Rs 3200 = Rs 128

Therefore, the difference between simple interest and compound interest is Rs 128.
