## 3. The cost of two varieties of paint is Rs. 3969 per 2 kg and Rs. 1369 per 2 kg respectively. After how many years will the value of both paint be the same, if variety 1 appreciates at 26% per annum and variety 2 depreciates at 26% per annum ?

**Answer:**

**Option A**

**Explanation :**

Simply appreciates variety 1 by 26% and depreciates variety 2 by 26% as:

3969(1?1/26)^n=1369(1+1/26)^n

For n = 2 we get both values equal.

Variety 2 Variety1

3969.00 1369 Initially

2937.06 1724.94 after I year

2173.42 2173.42 after II year
