**1. Find the simple interest, when:
(i) Principal = Rs 2000, Rate of Interest = 5% per annum and Time = 5 years.
(ii) Principal = Rs 500, Rate of Interest = 12.5% per annum and Time = 4 years.
(iii) Principal = Rs 4500, Rate of Interest = 4% per annum and Time = 6 months.**

**(iv) Principal = Rs 12000, Rate of Interest = 18% per annum and Time = 4 months.
(v) Principal = Rs 1000, Rate of Interest = 10% per annum and Time = 73 days.**

**Solution:**

(i) Given Principal = Rs 2000, Rate of Interest = 5% per annum and Time = 5 years.

We know that simple interest = (P Ã— T Ã— R)/100

On substituting these values in above equation we get

SI = (2000 Ã— 5 Ã— 5)/100

= Rs 500

(ii) Given Principal = Rs 500, Rate of Interest = 12.5% per annum and Time = 4 years.

We know that simple interest = (P Ã— T Ã— R)/100

On substituting these values in above equation we get

SI = (500 Ã— 4 Ã— 12.5)/100

= Rs 250

(iii) Given Principal = Rs 4500, Rate of Interest = 4% per annum and Time = 6 months = Â½ years

We know that simple interest = (P Ã— T Ã— R)/100
