Compound Interest: Sometimes it so happens that the borrower and the lender agree to fix up a certain unit of time, say yearly or half-yearly or quarterly to settle the previous account. In such cases, the amount after first unit of time becomes the principal for the second unit,the amount after second unit becomes the principal for the third unit and so on.

After a specified period, the difference between the amount and the money borrowed is called the Compound Interest (abbreviated as C.I.) for that period.

How to Calculate Compound Interest :- 

Let Principal = P, Rate = R% per annum, Time = n years.

  1. When interest is compound Annually:

Amount = P(1+R/100)n

  1. When interest is compounded Half-yearly:

Amount = P[1+(R/2)/100]2n

III. When interest is compounded Quarterly:

Amount = P[ 1+(R/4)/100]4n

  1. When interest is compounded AnnuaI1y but time is in fraction, say 3(2/5)

years.

Amount = P(1+R/100)3 x (1+(2R/5)/100)

  1. When Rates are different for different years, say Rl%, R2%, R3% for 1st,

2nd and 3rd year

respectively.

Then, Amount = P(1+R1/100)(1+R2/100)(1+R3/100)

  1. Present worth of Rs.x due n years hence is given by :

Present Worth = x/(1+(R/100))n

Compound Interest Problems

Ex.1. Find compound interest on Rs. 7500 at 4% per annum for 2 years, compounded annually.
Sol. Amount = Rs [7500*(1+(4/100)2] = Rs (7500 * (26/25) * (26/25)) = Rs. 8112. therefore, C.I. = Rs. (8112 – 7500) = Rs. 612.

Ex. 2. Find compound interest on Rs. 8000 at 15% per annum for 2 years 4 months, compounded annually.

Sol. Time = 2 years 4 months = 2(4/12) years = 2(1/3) years.

Amount = Rs’. [8000 X (1+(15/100))2 X (1+((1/3)*15)/100)]

=Rs. [8000 * (23/20) * (23/20) * (21/20)]

= Rs. 11109

:. C.I. = Rs. (11109 – 8000) = Rs. 3109.

Ex. 3. Find the compound interest on Rs. 10,000 in 2 years at 4% per annum, the interest being compounded half-yearly.  

Sol.  Principal = Rs. 10000; Rate = 2%  per half-year;  Time = 2 years = 4 half-years.

Amount = Rs [10000 * (1+(2/100))4] = Rs(10000 * (51/50) * (51/50) * (51/50) * (51/50))

= Rs. 10824.32.

:. C.I. = Rs. (10824.32 – 10000) = Rs. 824.32.

Ex. 4. Find the compound interest on Rs. 16,000 at 20% per annum for 9 months, compounded quarterly. 

Sol.           Principal = Rs. 16000; Time = 9 months =3 quarters;

Rate = 20% per annum = 5% per quarter.

Amount = Rs. [16000 x (1+(5/100))3] = Rs. 18522.

  1. = Rs. (18522 – 16000) = Rs. 2522.

Ex. 5. If the simple interest on a sum of money at 5% per annum for 3 years is Rs. 1200, find the compound interest on the same sum for the same period at the same rate.

Sol. Clearly, Rate = 5% p.a., Time = 3 years, S.I.= Rs. 1200.       . .

So principal=RS [100*1200]/3*5=RS 8000

Amount = Rs. 8000 x [1 +5/100]^3 – = Rs. 9261.

.. C.I. = Rs. (9261 – 8000) = Rs. 1261.

Ex. 6. In what time will Rs. 1000 become Rs. 1331 at 10% per annum compounded annually? 

Sol. Principal = Rs. 1000; Amount = Rs. 1331; Rate = 10% p.a. Let the time be n years. Then,

[ 1000 (1+ (10/100))] = 1331 or (11/10)n =  (1331/1000) = (11/10)3

n = 3 years.

Ex. 7. If Rs. 600 amounts to Rs. 683.20 in two years compounded annually, find the rate of interest per annum.

Sol. Principal = Rs. 500; Amount = Rs. 583.20; Time = 2 years.

Let the rate be R% per annum.. ‘Then,

[ 500 (1+(R/100)2 ] = 583.20 or [ 1+ (R/100)]2  =  5832/5000 = 11664/10000

[ 1+ (R/100)]2 = (108/100)2  or  1 + (R/100) = 108/100  or  R = 8

So, rate = 8% p.a.

 

Ex. 8. If the compound interest on a certain sum at 16 (2/3)% to  3 years is Rs.1270, find the simple interest on the same sum at the same rate and f or the same period.

Sol. Let the sum be Rs. x. Then,

C.I. = [ x * (1 + (( 50/(3*100))3 – x ] = ((343x / 216) – x) = 127x / 216

127x /216 = 1270  or  x = (1270 * 216) / 127  =  2160.

Thus, the sum is Rs. 2160

S.I. = Rs  ( 2160 * (50/3) * 3 * (1 /100 ) ) = Rs. 1080.

Ex. 9. The difference between the compound interest and simple interest on a certain sum at 10% per annum for 2 years is Rs. 631. Find the sum.

Sol. Let the sum be Rs. x. Then,

C.I. =  x ( 1 + ( 10 /100 ))2 – x  =  21x / 100 ,

S.I.  = (( x * 10 * 2) / 100) =  x / 5

(C.I) – (S.I) = ((21x / 100 ) – (x / 5 )) =  x / 100

( x / 100 )  =  632    x  =  63100.

Hence, the sum is Rs.63,100.

Ex. 10. The difference between the compound interest and the simple interest accrued on an amount of Rs. 18,000 in 2 years was Rs. 405. What was the rate of interest p.c.p.a. ?

Sol. Let the rate be R% p.a. then,

[ 18000 ( 1 + ( R / 100 )2 ) – 18000 ] – ((18000 * R *  2) / 100 ) = 405

18000 [ ( 100 + (R / 100 )2  / 10000)  –  1 – (2R / 100 ) ]  =  405

18000[( (100 + R ) 2 – 10000 – 200R) / 10000 ]  =  405

9R2 / 5  =  405   R2  =((405 * 5 ) / 9) = 225

R = 15.

Rate = 15%.

Ex. 11. Divide Rs. 1301 between A and B, so that the amount of A after 7 years is equal to the amount of B after 9 years, the interest being compounded at 4% per  annum.

Sol. Let the two parts be Rs. x and Rs. (1301 – x).

x(1+4/100)7 =(1301-x)(1+4/100)9

x/(1301-x)=(1+4/100)2=(26/25*26/25)

625x=676(1301-x)

1301x=676*1301

x=676.

So,the parts are rs.676 and rs.(1301-676)i.e rs.676 and rs.625.

Ex.12. a certain sum amounts to rs.7350 in 2 years and to rs.8575 in 3 years.find the sum and rate percent.

S.I on rs.7350 for 1 year=rs.(8575-7350)=rs.1225.

Rate=(100*1225/7350*1)%=16 2/3%

Let the sum be rs.x.then,

X(1+50/3*100)2=7350

X*7/6*7/6=7350

X=(7350*36/49)=5400.

Sum=rs.5400.

Ex.13.a sum of money amounts to rs.6690 after 3 years and to rs.10,035 after 6 years on compound interest.find the sum.

Sol. Let the sum be rs.P.then

P(1+R/100)3=6690…(i) and   P(1+R/100)6=10035…(ii)

On dividing,we get (1+R/100)3=10025/6690=3/2.

Substituting this value in (i),we get:

P*3/2=6690 or P=(6690*2/3)=4460

Hence,the sum is rs.4460.

Ex.14. a sum of money doubles itself at compound interest in 15 years.in how many years will it beco,e eight times?

P(1+R/100)15=2P

(1+R/100)15=2P/P=2

LET P(1+R/100)n=8P

(1+R/100)n=8=23={(1+R/100)15}3[USING (I)]

(1+R/100)N=(1+R/100)45

n=45.

Thus,the required time=45 years.

Ex.15.What annual payment will discharge a debt of Rs.7620 due in 3years at 16 2/3% per annum interest?

Sol. Let each installment beRs.x.

Then,(P.W. of Rs.x due 1 year hence)+(P>W of Rs.x due 2 years hence)+(P.W of Rs. X due 3

years hence)=7620.

\ x/(1+(50/3*100))+ x/(1+(50/3*100))2 + x/(1+(50/3*100))3=7620

Û(6x/7)+(936x/49)+(216x/343)=7620.

Û294x+252x+216x=7620*343.

Û x=(7620*343/762)=3430.

\Amount of each installment=Rs.3430.
