a) 24555

b) 21753

c) 23220

d) 20500

e) 22755

**Answers:**

**Ans e**

Let the share of Rakesh be x

Amit’s share= (28000-x)

= (28000- x) + (28000-x)*8*8/100 = x + x*8*7/100

= (28000-x) + 1792000-64x/100= x+56x/100

= 2800000-100x+1792000-64x/100= 156x/100

= 4592000- 164x/100= 156x/100

= 4592000-164x= 156x

= 320x= 4592000

= x= 14350

Share of Amit= 28000-14350= Rs 13650

**Ans b**

Let the amount invested by Ankit in scheme A be x

Scheme B= 10000-x

Now,

=> (10000-x)*12*2/100- x *8*2/100 = 340

=> 240000- 24x/100 – 16x/100 = 340

=> 240000 – 40x/100= 340

=> 240000- 40x= 34000

=> 240000-34000= 40x

=> 40x= 206000

=> x= 206000/40

=> x= 5150

Investment in scheme B= 10000-5150= Rs 4850

**Ans c**

Let the sum of money invested be x

Now,

=> 852= x*12*2/100

=> 852*100= 24x

=> x= 852*100/24

=> x= 3550

Compound interest on same amount of sum when interest is calculated half yearly

C.I= P {(1+r/100)^{ n} -1)}

C.I= 3550{(1+4/100)^{2} – 1}

C.I= 3550*51/625

C.I= Rs 289.68

**Ans d**

Let the principal be x

Amount in simple interest

= x+ x*10*4/100

= x+ 2x/5= 7x/5

Amount in compound Interest

= x+ x{(1+10/100)^{4} -1}

= x+ 4641x/10000

= 14641x/ 10000

So,

=> 14641x/10000 – 7x/5= 150

=> 14641x- 14000x/10000= 150

=> 641x= 1500000

=> x= 1500000/641

=> x= Rs 2340

**Ans e**

We know that,

Difference between SI and CI= PR^{2}/ (100)^{2}

640= 25000*r^{2}/10000

6400000/25000= r^{2}

r^{2}= 256

r= 16%

**Ans d**

Interest for 3 years= 18500-13400= Rs 5100

Interest for 5 years = 5100*5/3= Rs 8500

Sum of money invested= 13400-8500= Rs 4900

Rate of interest= 8500*100/5*4900= 35%

**Ans e**

Mean rate of interest= 2295*100/25500 = 9%

By the rule of allegation

Ratio between investment in two schemes= 3:4

Amount invested in scheme B= 4*25500/7= Rs 14571

**Ans c**

Let the sum of money invested be x

CI in two years compounded annually

= x {(1+ 20/100)^{2} – 1)}

= x {36/25 -1)}

= 11x/ 25

Interest is being calculated half yearly

= x{(1+10/100)^{4} – 1)}

= x{14641-10000/10000}

= 4641x/10000

Now,

4641x/10000 – 11x/25= 760

4641x-4400x/10000= 760

241x= 7600000

x= Rs 31535

**Ans a**

Let the sum to be invested in scheme P be x

Scheme Q= 45000-x

Now,

x*5*2/100= (45000-x)*8*2/100+400

x/10 = (720000- 16x)/100 + 400

26x/100= 7200+400= 7600

x= Rs 29230

**Ans e**

SI interest for 3 years = 19500*7*3/100= Rs 4095

Amount to be received at the end of three years

= 19500+4095-840 = Rs 22755
