Compound Interest (Without using formula) Exercise Ex. 2(B)
Solution 1(e)
Correct option: (iii) Rs. 4,000
Let the Principal = Rs. 100
Then,
For S.I.: P = Rs. 100, R = 5% and T = 2 years
For C.I.:
Principal for 1^{st} year = Rs. 100
And, amount = Rs. 100 + Rs. 5 = Rs. 105
Then, Principal for 2^{nd} year = Rs. 105
Then, C.I. of 2 years = Rs. 5 + Rs. 5.25 = Rs. 10.25
Difference between C.I. and S.I. = Rs. 10.25 – Rs. 10 = Rs. 0.25
When difference between C.I. and S.I. for 2 years is Rs. 0.25, Principal = Rs. 100
Therefore, when the difference between C.I. and S.I. for 2 years is Rs. 100,
Principal
Solution 1(a)
Correct option: (i) Rs. 00
C.I. and S.I. are same for the first year on the same sum and at the same rate percent.
Solution 1(b)
Correct option: (ii) 572.80
For year 2023:
Since money deposited at the beginning of the year = Rs. 2,000
Principal for year 2023 = Rs. 2,000
And, amount = Rs. 2,000 + Rs. 160 = Rs. 2160
For year 2024:
Since money deposited at the beginning of the year = Rs. 3,000
Principal for year 2024 = Rs. 2,160 + Rs. 3,000 = Rs. 5,160
And, amount = Rs. 5,160 + Rs. 412.80 = Rs. 5572.80
Therefore, compound interest at the end of 2024 = Rs. 160 + Rs. 412.80 = Rs. 572.80
*Back answer is different.
Solution 1(c)
Correct option: (i) Rs. 880
For 1^{st} year:
P = Rs. 1000, R = 10%, T = 1 year
And, amount = Rs. 1000 + Rs. 100 = Rs. 1100
Money repaid = Rs. 300
∴ Balance = Rs. 1100 - Rs. 300 = Rs. 800
For 2^{nd} year:
P = Rs. 800, R = 10%, T = 1 year
And, amount = Rs. 800 + Rs. 80 = Rs. 880
Solution 1(d)
Correct option: (iv) Rs. 40
For S.I.: P = Rs. 4000, R = 10% and T = 2 years
For C.I.:
Principal for 1^{st} year = Rs. 4000
And, amount = Rs. 4000 + Rs. 400 = Rs. 4400
Then, Principal for 2^{nd} year = Rs. 4400
Then, C.I. of 2 years = Rs. 400 + Rs. 440 = Rs. 840
Therefore, difference between C.I. and S.I. = Rs. 840 - Rs. 800 = Rs. 40
Solution 2
For 1^{st} year
P = Rs. 4000
R = 8
T = 1 year
A = 4000 + 320 = Rs. 4320
For 2^{nd} year
P = Rs. 4320
R=8%
T = 1 year
A = 4320 + 345.60 = 4665.60
Compound interest = Rs. 4665.60 - Rs. 4000
= Rs. 665.60
Simple interest for 2 years =
= Rs. 640
Difference of CI and SI = 665.60 - 640
= Rs 25.60
Solution 3
Let money be Rs100
For 1^{st} year
P=Rs100; R=8% and T= 1year
Interest for the first year= Rs= Rs8
Amount= Rs100+ Rs8= Rs108
For 2^{nd} year
P=Rs108; R=8% and T= 1year
Interest for the second year= Rs= Rs8.64
Difference between the interests for the second and first year = Rs8.64 - Rs8 = Rs0.64
Given that interest for the second year exceeds the first year by Rs.96
When the difference between the interests is Rs0.64, principal is Rs100
When the difference between the interests is Rs96, principal=Rs=Rs15,000
Solution 4
(i) For 1^{st} years
P = Rs. 5600
R = 14%
T = 1 year
(ii) Amount at the end of the first year

= Rs. 6384
(iii) For 2^{nd} year
P = 6384
R = 14%
R = 1 year
= Rs. 893.76
= Rs. 894 (nearly)
Solution 5
Savings at the end of every year = Rs. 3000
For 2^{nd} year
P = Rs. 3000
R = 10%
T = 1 year
A = 3000 + 300 = Rs. 3300
For third year, savings = 3000
P = 3000 + 3300 = Rs. 6300
R = 10%
T = 1 year
A = 6300 + 630 = Rs. 6930
Amount at the end of 3^{rd} year
= 6930 + 3000
= Rs. 9930
Solution 6
For 1^{st} year
P = Rs. 12500
R = 12%
R = 1 year
A = 12500 + 1500 = Rs. 14000
For 2^{nd} year
P = Rs. 14000
R = 15%
T = 1 year
A = 1400 + 2100 = Rs. 16100
For 3^{rd} year
P = Rs. 16100
R = 18%
T = 1 year
A = 16100 + 2898 = Rs. 18998
Difference between the compound interest of the third year and first year
= Rs. 2898 - Rs. 1500
= Rs. 1398
Solution 7
Solution 8
For 1^{st} six months:
P = Rs. 5,000, R = 12% and T = year
∴ Interest = = Rs. 300
And, Amount = Rs. 5,000 + Rs. 300 = Rs. 5,300
Since money repaid = Rs. 1,800
Balance = Rs. 5,300 - Rs. 1,800 = Rs. 3,500
For 2^{nd} six months:
P = Rs. 3,500, R = 12% and T = year
∴ Interest = = Rs. 210
And, Amount = Rs. 3,500 + Rs. 210 = Rs. 3,710
Again money repaid = Rs. 1,800
Balance = Rs. 3,710 - Rs. 1,800 = Rs. 1,910
For 3^{rd} six months:
P = Rs. 1,910, R = 12% and T = year
∴ Interest = = Rs. 114.60
And, Amount = Rs. 1,910 + Rs. 114.60 = Rs. 2,024.60
Thus, the 3^{rd} payment to be made to clear the entire loan is 2,024.60.
Solution 9
Let principal (p = Rs. 100
R = 10%
T = 1 year
SI =
Compound interest payable half yearly
R = 5% half yearly
T = year = 1 half year
For first year
I =
A = 100 + 5 = Rs. 105
For second year
P = Rs. 105
Total compound interest = 5 + 5.25
= Rs. 10.25
Difference of CI and SI = 10.25- 10
= Rs. 0.25
When difference in interest is Rs. 10.25, sum = Rs. 100
If the difference is Rs. 1 ,sum =
If the difference is Rs. = 180,sum =

Similarly, amount in two years= Rs105+ 5% of Rs105
= Rs105+ Rs5.25
= Rs110.25
When amount in two years is Rs110.25, sum = Rs100
When amount in two years is Rs5,292, sum = Rs
= Rs4,800

Value of machine at the end of third year = 81 - 12.15
= Rs. 68.85
Net depreciation = Rs. 100 - Rs. 68.85
= Rs. 31.15
Or 31.15%
Solution 3
For 1^{st} half-year
P=Rs12,000; R=10% and T=1/2 year
Interest= Rs= Rs600
Amount= RS12,000 + Rs600= Rs12,600
Money paid at the end of 1^{st} half year=Rs4,000
Balance money for 2^{nd} half-year= Rs12,600- Rs4,000=Rs8,600
For 2^{nd} half-year
P=Rs8,600; R=10% and T=1/2 year
Interest=Rs=Rs430
Amount= Rs8,600+ Rs430= Rs9,030
Money paid at the end of 2^{nd} half-year=Rs4,000
Balance money for 3^{rd} half-year= Rs9,030- Rs4,000=Rs5,030
For 3^{rd} half-year
P=Rs5,030; R=10% and T=1/2 year
Interest = Rs= Rs251.50
Amount= Rs5,030 + Rs251.50= Rs5,281.50
Solution 4
Let Principal= Rs 100
For 1^{st} year
P=Rs100; R=10% and T=1year
Interest= Rs= Rs10
Amount= Rs100 + Rs10= Rs110
For 2^{nd} year
P=Rs110; R=10% and T= 1year
Interest= Rs= Rs11
Amount= Rs110 + Rs11= Rs121
For 3^{rd} year
P=Rs121; R=10% and T= 1year
Interest= Rs= Rs12.10
Sum of C.I. for 1^{st} year and 3^{rd} year=Rs10+Rs12.10=Rs22.10
When sum is Rs22.10, principal is Rs100
When sum is Rs2,652, principal =Rs=Rs12,000 Ans.
Solution 5
Let original value of machine=Rs100
For 1^{st} year
P=Rs100; R=12% and T= 1year
Depreciation in 1^{st} year= Rs =Rs12
Value at the end of 1^{st} year=Rs100 - Rs12=Rs88
For 2^{nd} year
P= Rs88; R=12% and T= 1year
Depreciation in 2^{nd} year= Rs =Rs10.56
When depreciation in 2^{nd} year is Rs10.56, original cost is Rs100
When depreciation in 2^{nd} year is Rs2,640, original cost=
=Rs25,000
Solution 6
Let Rs. x be the sum.
Compound interest
For 1^{st} year:
P = Rs.x, R = 8% and T=1
For 2^{nd} year:
P = Rs.x + Rs. 0.08x = Rs. 1.08x
Amount = 1.08x + 0.0864x = Rs. 1.1664x
CI = Amount - P = 1.1664x - x = Rs. 0.1664x
The difference between the simple interest and compound interest at the rate of 8% per annum compounded annually should be Rs. 64 in 2 years.
⇒ Rs. 0.1664x - Rs. 0.16x = Rs.64
⇒ Rs. 0.0064x = Rs.64
⇒ x = 10000
Hence the sum is Rs. 10000.
Solution 7
For 1^{st} year
P=Rs13,500; R=16% and T= 1year
Interest= Rs= Rs2,160
Amount= Rs13,500 + Rs2,160= Rs15,660
For 2^{nd} year
P=Rs15,660; R=16% and T= 1year
Interest= Rs= Rs2,505.60
=Rs2,506
Solution 8
For 1^{st} year
P=Rs48,000; R=10% and T= 1year
Interest= Rs= Rs4,800
Amount= Rs48,000+ Rs4,800= Rs52,800
For 2^{nd} year
P=Rs52,800; R=10% and T= 1year
Interest= Rs= Rs5,280
Amount= Rs52,800+ Rs5,280= Rs58,080
For 3^{rd} year
P=Rs58,080; R=10% and T= 1year
Interest= Rs= Rs5,808
Solution 9
(i)
Let x% be the rate of interest charged.
For 1^{st} year:
P = Rs.12,000, R = x% and T = 1
For 2^{nd} year:
After a year, Ashok paid back Rs.4,000.
P = Rs.12,000 + Rs.120x - Rs.4,000 = Rs.8,000 + Rs.120x
The compound interest for the second year is Rs.920
Rs. (80x + 1.20x^{2}) = Rs.920
⇒1.20x^{2} + 80x - 920 = 0
⇒3x^{2} + 200x - 2300 = 0
⇒3x^{2} + 230x - 30x - 2300 = 0
⇒x(3x + 230) -10(3x + 230) = 0
⇒(3x + 230)(x - 10) = 0
⇒x = -230/3 or x = 10
As rate of interest cannot be negative so x = 10.
Therefore the rate of interest charged is 10%.
(ii)
For 1^{st} year:
Interest = Rs.120x = Rs.1200
For 2^{nd} year:
Interest = Rs.(80x + 1.20x^{2}) = Rs.920
The amount of debt at the end of the second year is equal to the addition of principal of the second year and interest for the two years.
Debt = Rs.8,000 + Rs.1200 + Rs.920 = Rs.10,120
