SIMPLE AND COMPOUND INTEREST

Interest is defined as the cost of borrowing money as in the case of interest charged on a loan balance. Conversely, interest can also be the rate paid for money on deposit as in the case of a certificate of deposit. Interest can be calculated in two ways, Simple interest or Compound interest.

 Simple interest is calculated on the principal or original amount of a loan or deposit.

 Compound interest is calculated on the principal amount and also on the accumulated interest of previous periods, and can thus be regarded as "interest on interest."

### SIMPLE INTEREST:

If A stands for Amount; P stands for Principal; S.I stands for Simple Interest; T stands for Time (in years); R stands for Rate per cent per year (per annum), then

(3)

### COMPOUND INTEREST:

If A stands for Amount; P stands for Principal; C.I stands for Compound Interest; n stands for Time (in years); R stands for Rate per cent per year (per annum), then

1) A = P(1 + 𝑅

100) n

2) C.I = A – P

 If interest is compounded annually but time is in fraction, (Suppose time = 21 5 years), then : A = P (1 + 100R ) ² × (1 + 1 5R 100)

 When rates are different for different years,say R1%, R2%...Rn% for 1st

year, 2nd year…..nth year respectively, then A = P (1 + R1 100) (1 + R2 100) ……. (1 + Rn 100)

If Diff. between SI & CI for 2 years is Rs. x, then Principal = (C.I ~ S.I) (100R )

= x (100R )

### ²

(C.I ~ S.I) = P ( R

### Population :

Let the population of the town be P now and suppose it increases at the rate of R% per annum,then:

 Population after n years = P [1 + R

100 ]

n (After n years population

increases, thus (1 + R

100) is used and if population decreases, (1 − R 100) is

used)

 Population n years ago = 𝑃

Given that, Principal P = Rs.2000, Rate R = 8% and Time T = 3 years

Simple Interest, S.I = (P × R × T)

100

S.I = (2000 × 8 × 3)

100

Simple Interest, S.I = (P × R × T)

100 S.I = (4000 × 10 × 3) 100 S.I = Rs.1200 Amount, A = P + S.I A = 4000 + 1200 A = Rs.5200

R × T

Given that, Simple Interest S.I = Rs.70, Time T = 4 years and Rate R = 3 1 2 % = 7 2 % Principal, P = S.I × 100 R × T P = 70 × 1005 2 × 4 P = 7000 14 P = Rs.500

and Time T = 6 months = 6

(7)

Simple Interest, S.I = (P × R × T) 100 S.I = 1100 × 8 × 1 2 100 S.I = Rs.44 Amount, A = P + S.I A = Rs.1100 + Rs.44 A = Rs.1144

5) At what rate per cent, simple interest will a certain sum of money double itself in 20 years?

(a) 30% (b) 20% (c) 5% (d) 15% Ans: (c) 5% Formula: S.I = A – P R = S.I × 100 P × T

Let the Principal P = Rs.x, Amount A = Rs.2x and Time T = 20 years S.I = A – P

⇒ S.I = 2x – x ⇒ S.I = Rs.x R = S.I × 100

R = 𝑥 × 100

𝑥 × 20

R = 5%

(b) 5 years (c) 3 years (d) 2 1 2 years Ans: (a) 1 5 13 years Formula: T = S.I × 100 P × R

Given that, Principal P = Rs.2600, Rate R = 8% and Simple Interest S.I = Rs.288 T = S.I × 100 P × R T = 288 × 100 2600 × 8 T = 18 13 years T = 1 5 13 years.

8) Kamal lent Rs.600 to Meena for 2 years and Rs.150 to Anil for 4 years and received altogether from both Rs.90 as simple interest. Find the rate of interest.

(10)

Ans: (a) 5%

Given that, Principal, P1 = Rs.600

Time, T1 = 2 years

Principal, P2 = Rs.150

Time, T2 = 4 years

And Total interest,S.I = Rs.90 P1 x R x T1 100 + P2 x R x T2 100 = 90 600 x R x 2 100 + 150 x R x 4 100 = 90 1200 x R 100 + 600 x R 100 = 90 12 R + 6 R = 90 18 R = 90 R = 90 18 ⇒ Rate of interest, R = 5%

(a) Rs.1320 (b) Rs.1500 (c) Rs.1261 (d) Rs.1100 Ans: (c) Rs. 1261 Formula: A = P (1 + R 100) n C.I = A – P

(11)

Rate R = 5% and Time n = 3 years Amount, A = P (1 + R 100) n = 8000 (1 + 5 100 ) 3 = 8000 ( 105 100 ) 3 = 8000 (21 20 ) 3 = 8000 x 21 20 x 21 20 x 21 20 A = 9261

Compound Interest, C.I = A – P

= 9261 – 8000 = Rs.1261

⇒ R 100 = 11 10

### –

1 ⇒ R 100 = 11 − 10 10 ⇒ R 100 = 1 10 ⇒ R = 1 10 x 100 ⇒ Rate of interest, R = 10%
