### Question 1

The simple interest on a certain principal sum @2% for a period of 4 years is Rs. 360. What is the sum?

### Question 2

Mr. X puts an amount of Rs. 2600 in a simple interest scheme. If he gets a total amount of Rs. 3770 after 5 months, what is the rate of interest?

**A**

${3/4}$% p.a.

**B**

9% p.a.

**C**

${11/12}$% p.a.

**D**

1% p.a.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

The interest is I = 3770 - 2600 = 1170. So R = $(I × 100)/(T × P)$. Solving, we get R = $(1170 × 100)/(5 × 2600)$ = 9% per month, which is ${3/4}$% per annum. *Please note that since the time is in months the rate is also p.m.*

### Question 3

The simple interest on a hypothetical investment is Rs. 5120. What is the principal amount if the rate per annum, time in years and the principal, all have the same numerical value?

### Question 4

A certain amount is split into two parts. The first part is invested at 10% p.a. and the second at 5% p.a. What is the total amount if the total simple interest at the end of 2 years is Rs. 240, and if the amount invested at 10% is Rs. 1400?

**A**

Rs. 1000.

**B**

Rs. 1100.

**C**

Rs. 900.

**D**

Rs. 1200.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the amount x be invested at r1% and remaining (P - x) at r2%, and let the sum of interests be I. Then, I = ${x × r_1 × 2}/100$ + ${(P - x) × r_2 × 2}/100$, which simplifies to 100I = 2 × ($x × (r_1 - r_2) + P × r_2$). Putting r_{1} = 10, r_{2} = 5, x = 1400, I = 240, we get P = Rs. 1000.

### Question 5

Simple interest on a certain sum of money is $1/4$ of the sum for 5 years. What is the rate of interest?
