Question

# Mosses invested Rs. 20,000 in a scheme at simple interest @ 15% per annum. After three years he withdrew the principal amount plus interest and invested the entire amount in another scheme for two years, which earned him compound interest @ 12% per annum. What would be the total interest earned by Mosses at the end of 5 years?

Solution

## S.I= $$\frac{20,000\times 15\times 3}{100}=9000$$Amount = Rs 20,000+ Rs 9000= Rs  29,000Now, CI= $$29,000 (1+\frac{12}{100})^{2}=29,000\times \frac{28}{25}\times \frac{28}{29}$$$$= 36,377.6$$A-P= 36,377.6-29,000= 7377.6After 5 years = $$7377.6+9000=16,377.6$$Mathematics
