TYpe of interest , whether it is simple interest or interest compounded annualy, is not mentioned.
Answer is worked out for both the types.

Simple interest :-

Simple Interest I = (pnR)/100 , where p is principle amount, n is number of years, R is rate of interest

I = Rs.5200-Rs.4000 = Rs.1200

hence   (4000×n×5)/100 = 1200  or 200n = 1200  or n = 6 years.

Compound Interest :-

Amount A after n years is given by,    P[ 1 +(r/100) ]n = A

4000×[ 1+(5/100) ]n = 5200  or  ( 1.05 )n = 5200/4000 = 1.3

hence n×log(1.05) = log(1.3)

By solving the above eqn., we get n ≈ 5.4 years ≈ 5 years 5 months
