Exercise 2

Question 1

Shweta deposits ₹350 per month in a recurring deposit account for one year at the rate of 8% p.a. Find the amount she will receive at the time of maturity.

Answer

Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹350,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 1 x 12 = 12,
r = simple interest rate percent per annum = 8

Using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(350×12×132×12×8100)=₹182I = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( 350 \times \dfrac{12 \times 13}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{8}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = \text{₹182}

Using the formula:

MV=P×n+I, we getMV=(350×12)+182=4200+182=₹4382MV = P \times n + I \text{, we get} \\ MV = (350 \times 12) + 182 \\ \qquad\medspace = 4200 + 182 \\ \qquad\medspace = \text{₹4382}

∴ The amount Shweta will get at the time of maturity = ₹4382.

Question 2

Saloni deposited ₹150 per month in a bank for 8 months under the Recurring Deposit Scheme. What will be the maturity value of his deposits, if the rate of interest is 8% per annum?

Answer

Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹150,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 8,
r = simple interest rate percent per annum = 8

Using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(150×8×92×12×8100)=₹36I = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( 150 \times \dfrac{8 \times 9}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{8}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = \text{₹36}

Using the formula:

MV=P×n+I, we getMV=(150×8)+36=1200+36=₹1236MV = P \times n + I \text{, we get} \\ MV = (150 \times 8) + 36 \\ \qquad\medspace = 1200 + 36 \\ \qquad\medspace = \text{₹1236}

∴ The amount Saloni will get at the time of maturity = ₹1236.

Question 3

Answer

Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹1000,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 3 x 12 = 36,
r = simple interest rate percent per annum = 8

Using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(1000×36×372×12×8100)=₹4440I = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( 1000 \times \dfrac{36 \times 37}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{8}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = \text{₹4440}

Using the formula:

MV=P×n+I, we getMV=(1000×36)+4440=36000+4440=₹40440MV = P \times n + I \text{, we get} \\ MV = (1000 \times 36) + 4440 \\ \qquad\medspace = 36000 + 4440 \\ \qquad\medspace = \text{₹40440}

∴ The amount Mrs. Goswami will get at the time of maturity = ₹40440.

Question 4

Sonia had a recurring deposit account in a bank and deposited ₹600 per month for 2½ years. If the rate of interest was 10% p.a., find the maturity value of this account.

Answer

Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹600,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 2 x 12 + 6 = 30,
r = simple interest rate percent per annum = 10

Using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(600×30×312×12×10100)=₹2325I = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( 600 \times \dfrac{30 \times 31}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{10}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = \text{₹2325}

Using the formula:

MV=P×n+I, we getMV=(600×30)+2325=18000+2325=₹20325MV = P \times n + I \text{, we get} \\ MV = (600 \times 30) + 2325 \\ \qquad\medspace = 18000 + 2325 \\ \qquad\medspace = \text{₹20325}

∴ The maturity value of Sonia's account = ₹20325.

Question 5

Answer

Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹200,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 36,
r = simple interest rate percent per annum = 11

Using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(200×36×372×12×11100)=₹1221I = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( 200 \times \dfrac{36 \times 37}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{11}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = \text{₹1221}

∴ The amount Kiran will get at the time of maturity = ₹8421.

Question 6

Haneef has a cumulative bank account and deposits ₹600 per month for a period of 4 years. If he gets ₹5880 as interest at the time of maturity, find the rate of interest per annum.

Answer

Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹600,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 4 x 12 = 48

Let the rate of interest be r% per annum, then by using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(600×48×492×12×r100)=588rI = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( 600 \times \dfrac{48 \times 49}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = 588r

According to the given,

588r=5880r=5880588r=10588r = 5880 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow r = \dfrac{5880}{588} \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow r = 10

∴ Rate of (simple) interest = 10% p.a.

Question 7

David opened a Recurring Deposit Account in a bank and deposited ₹300 per month for two years. If he received ₹7725 at the time of maturity, find the rate of interest.

Answer

Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹300,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 2 x 12 = 24

Let the rate of interest be r% per annum, then by using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(300×24×252×12×r100)=75rI = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( 300 \times \dfrac{24 \times 25}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = 75r

Total money deposited by David = ₹300 x 24 = ₹7200

∴ The amount of maturity = total money deposited + interest
= 7200 + 75r

According to the given,

7200+75r=772575r=7725720075r=525r=52575r=77200 + 75r = 7725 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow 75r = 7725 - 7200 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow 75r = 525 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow r = \dfrac{525}{75} \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow r = 7

∴ Rate of (simple) interest = 7% p.a.

Question 8

Mr. Gupta opened a recurring deposit account in a bank. He deposited ₹2500 per month for two years. At the time of maturity he got ₹67500. Find:

(i) the total interest earned by Mr. Gupta.
(ii) the rate of interest per annum.

Answer

(i) Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹2500,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 2 x 12 = 24

∴ Total money deposited by Mr. Gupta = ₹(2500 x 24) = ₹60000

Money Mr. Gupta gets at the time of maturity = ₹67500

∴ Total interest earned by Mr. Gupta = ₹67500 - ₹60000 = ₹7500

(ii) Let the rate of interest be r% per annum, then by using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we get7500=(2500×24×252×12×r100)7500=625rr=7500625r=12I = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] 7500 = \Big( 2500 \times \dfrac{24 \times 25}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] 7500 = 625r \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow r = \dfrac{7500}{625} \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow r = 12

∴ Rate of (simple) interest = 12% p.a.

Question 9

Shahrukh opened a Recurring Deposit Account in a bank and deposited ₹800 per month for 1½ years. If he received ₹15084 at the time of maturity, find the rate of interest per annum.

Answer

Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹800,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 1 x 12 + 6 = 18

Let the rate of interest be r% per annum, then by using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(800×18×192×12×r100)=114rI = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( 800 \times \dfrac{18 \times 19}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = 114r

Total money deposited by Shahrukh = ₹800 x 18 = ₹14400

∴ The amount of maturity = total money deposited + interest
= 14400 + 114r

According to the given,

14400+114r=15084114r=1508414400114r=684r=684114r=614400 + 114r = 15084 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow 114r = 15084 - 14400 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow 114r = 684 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow r = \dfrac{684}{114} \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow r = 6

∴ Rate of (simple) interest = 6% p.a.

Question 10

Mohan has a recurring deposit account in a bank for 2 years at 6% p.a. simple interest. If he gets ₹1200 as interest at the time of maturity, find

Answer

Here,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 2 x 12 = 24,
r = interest rate per annum = 6

(i) Let the monthly installment be ₹x, then P = ₹x.

Using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(x×24×252×12×6100)=1.5xI = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( x \times \dfrac{24 \times 25}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{6}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = ₹1.5x

According to the given,

1.5x=1200x=12001.5x=8001.5x = 1200 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow x = \dfrac{1200}{1.5} \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow x = 800 \\[0.5em]

∴ The monthly installment = ₹800

(ii) Total amount deposited by Mohan = ₹(800 x 24) = ₹19200

∴ Amount of maturity = total amount deposited + interest
= ₹19200 + ₹1200
= ₹20400

Question 11

Answer

Here,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 1 x 12 = 12,
r = interest rate per annum = 14

Let the monthly installment be ₹x, then P = ₹x.

Using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(x×12×132×12×14100)=91100xI = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( x \times \dfrac{12 \times 13}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{14}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = ₹\dfrac{91}{100}x

Total money deposited by Mr. R.K. Nair = ₹12x

∴ The amount of maturity = total money deposited + interest

=12x+91100x=1291100x= ₹12x + ₹\dfrac{91}{100}x \\[0.5em] = ₹\dfrac{1291}{100}x

According to the given,

Amount of maturity = ₹6455

1291100x=6455x100=64551291x=5×100x=500\Rightarrow \dfrac{1291}{100}x = 6455 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow \dfrac{x}{100} = \dfrac{6455}{1291} \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow x = 5 \times 100 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow x = 500

∴ The monthly installment = ₹500

Hint:

Let the account be held for n months, then

2000n+2000×n(n+1)2×12×10100=831002000 n + 2000 \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{10}{100} = 83100

Answer

Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹2000,
r = simple interest rate percent per annum = 10

Let the account be held for n months

Using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(2000×n(n+1)2×12×10100)=25n(n+1)3I = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( 2000 \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{10}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = \dfrac{25n(n+1)}{3}

Total money deposited by Samita = ₹(2000 x n) = ₹2000n

∴ Amount of maturity = total amount deposited + interest

=2000n+25n(n+1)3=6000n+25n(n+1)3=25n2+6025n3= ₹2000n + \dfrac{25n(n+1)}{3} \\[0.5em] = ₹\dfrac{6000n + 25n(n+1)}{3} \\[0.5em] = ₹\dfrac{25n^2 + 6025n}{3}

r = simple interest rate percent per annum = 10

Using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(500×30×312×12×10100)=₹1937.50I = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( 500 \times \dfrac{30 \times 31}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{10}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = \text{₹1937.50}

Using the formula:

MV=P×n+I, we getMV=(500×30)+1937.50=15000+1937.50=₹16937.50MV = P \times n + I \text{, we get} \\ MV = (500 \times 30) + 1937.50 \\ \qquad\medspace = 15000 + 1937.50 \\ \qquad\medspace = \text{₹16937.50}

The amount Anshul will get at the time of maturity = ₹16937.50.

Difference in maturity amount = 16937.50 - 16620 = 317.50

∴ Anshul will get ₹317.50 more than Ankita at maturity.

Question 3

Shilpa has a 4 year recurring deposit account in Bank of Maharashtra and deposits ₹800 per month. If she gets ₹48200 at the time of maturity, find

(i) the rate of (simple) interest,
(ii) the total interest earned by Shilpa

Answer

Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹800,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 4 x 12 = 48

∴ Total money deposited by Shilpa = ₹(800 x 48) = ₹38400

Money Shilpa gets at the time of maturity = ₹48200

∴ Total interest earned by Shilpa = ₹48200 - ₹38400 = ₹9800

Let the rate of interest be r% per annum, then by using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we get9800=(800×48×492×12×r100)9800=784rr=9800784r=12.5I = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] 9800 = \Big( 800 \times \dfrac{48 \times 49}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] 9800 = 784r \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow r = \dfrac{9800}{784} \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow r = 12.5

(i) Rate of (simple) interest = 12.5% p.a.

(ii) Total interest earned by Shilpa = ₹9800

Question 4

Mr. Chaturvedi has a recurring deposit account in Grindlay’s Bank for 4½ years at 11% p.a. (simple interest). If he gets ₹101418.75 at the time of maturity, find the monthly installment.

Answer

Here,
n = number of months for which the money is deposited = 4 x 12 + 6 = 54,
r = interest rate per annum = 11

Let the monthly installment be ₹x, then P = ₹x.

Using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(x×54×552×12×11100)=108980xI = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( x \times \dfrac{54 \times 55}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{11}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = ₹\dfrac{1089}{80}x

Total money deposited by Mr. Chaturvedi = ₹54x

∴ The amount of maturity = total money deposited + interest

=54x+108980x=540980x= ₹54x + ₹\dfrac{1089}{80}x \\[0.5em] = ₹\dfrac{5409}{80}x

According to the given,

540980x=101418.75540980x=10141875100x=10141875×80100×5409x=1500\dfrac{5409}{80}x = 101418.75 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow \dfrac{5409}{80}x = \dfrac{10141875}{100} \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow x = \dfrac{10141875 \times 80}{100 \times 5409} \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow x = 1500 \\[0.5em]

∴ The monthly installment = ₹1500

Question 5

Rajiv Bhardwaj has a recurring deposit account in a bank of ₹600 per month. If the bank pays simple interest of 7% p.a. and he gets ₹15450 as maturity amount, find the total time for which the account was held.

Answer

Here,
P = money deposited per month = ₹600,
r = simple interest rate percent per annum = 7

Let the account be held for n months

Using the formula:

I=P×n(n+1)2×12×r100, we getI=(600×n(n+1)2×12×7100)=7n(n+1)4I = P \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{r}{100} \text{, we get} \\[0.7em] I = \Big( 600 \times \dfrac{n(n+1)}{2 \times 12} \times \dfrac{7}{100} \Big) \\[0.5em] \enspace\medspace = \dfrac{7n(n+1)}{4}

Total money deposited by Rajiv Bhardwaj = ₹(600 x n) = ₹600n

∴ Amount of maturity = total amount deposited + interest

=600n+7n(n+1)4=2400n+7n(n+1)4=7n2+2407n4= ₹600n + \dfrac{7n(n+1)}{4} \\[0.5em] = ₹\dfrac{2400n + 7n(n+1)}{4} \\[0.5em] = ₹\dfrac{7n^2 + 2407n}{4}

According to the given,

7n2+2407n4=154507n2+2407n61800=07n(n24)+2575(n24)=0(n24)(7n+2575)=0n=24,25757 (but n cannot be negative)n=24\dfrac{7n^2 + 2407n}{4} = 15450 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow 7n^2 + 2407n - 61800 = 0 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow 7n(n - 24) + 2575(n - 24) = 0 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow (n - 24)(7n + 2575) = 0 \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow n = 24, -\dfrac{2575}{7} \\[0.5em] \text{ (but n cannot be negative)} \\[0.5em] \Rightarrow n = 24

∴ The account was held for 24 months i.e. 2 years.
