### 14. Kamala borrowed from Ratan a certain sum at a certain rate for two years simple interest. She lent this sum at the same rate to Hari for two years compound interest. At the end of two years, she received Rs 210 as compound interest but paid Rs 200 only as simple interest. Find the sum and the rate of interest.

#### Solution:

Let the sum be Rs P and the rate of interest be R%

We know that Kamal paid Rs 200 as simple interest.

200 =

Pr = 10000…(1)

Also, Kamla received Rs 210 as compound interest. Putting the equation in (1), we get:

P = 1000

Thus, the required sum is Rs 1000 and the rate of interest is 10%

### 15. Find the rate percent per annum, if Rs 2000 amount to Rs 2315.25 in a year and a half, interest being compounded six monthly.

#### Solution:

Given,

Principal = Rs.2000

Amount = Rs. 2315.25 = R = 10.25%

Hence,

Rate= 10.25%

### 16. Find the rate percent per annum, if Rs 2000 amount to Rs 2315.25 in a year and a half, interest being compounded six monthly.

#### Solution:

Given,

Time = 3years

Let rate = R %

Let Principal = P

So, amount becomes = 2p Rate = 25.99%

### 17. Find the rate at which a sum of money will become four times the original amount in 2 years if the interest is compounded half-yearly.
