ARs.1000

BRs.1053

CRs.1200

DRs.11233

cp=800 , profit=25%

sp=800 * 125/100=1000

and

sp=marked price * (100-5)/100

1000=marked price * 95/100

marked price = 1052.6 = Rs.1053

**Choose the correct option.**

A certain money market account that had a balance of $48,000 during all of last month earned $360 in interest for the month. At what simple annual interest rate did the account earn interest last month?

A7%

B9%

C8%

D8.50%

**Answer:**** Option B **

**Explanation:**

Formula [R = SI*100/(P*T)]

Given P= $48000, SI=$360, T=1/12

So Rate = [360*100/(48000*(1/12))] = 9%.

**Choose the correct option.**

How long will it take for a sum of money to grow from Rs.1250 to Rs.10,000, if it is invested at 12.5% p.a simple interest?

A26 Years.

B35 Years.

C76 Years.

D56 Years.

**Answer:**** Option D **

**Explanation:**

Simple interest is given by the formula SI = (pnr/100), where p is the principal, n is the number of

years for which it is invested, r is the rate of interest per annum

In this case, Rs. 1250 has become Rs.10,000.

Therefore, the interest earned = (10,000 - 1250) = 8750.

8750 = [(1250*n*12.5)/100]

=> n = 700 / 12.5 = 56 years.

**Choose the correct option.**

Simple interest on a certain sum is 16/25 of the sum. Find the rate percent and time, if both are numerically equal.

ARate = 8% & Time = 8 years

BRate = 8% & Time = 9 years

CRate = 18% & Time = 8 years

DNone of these

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

Let sum = X. Then S.I. = 16x/25

Let rate = R% and Time = R years.

Therefore, x * R * R/100 = 16x/25 or R^2 = 1600/25, R = 40/5 = 8

So, Rate = 8% and Time = 8 years.

**Choose the correct option.**

In how much time would the simple interest on a certain sum be 0.125 times the principal at 10% per annum?

A2 3/4 years

B1 1/4 years

C2 1/4 years.

D3 1/4 years.

**Answer:**** Option B **

**Explanation:**

Lets assume sum = x.

Then, S.I. = 0.125x = 1/8 *x, GivenR = 10%

Formula: Time = (100 * S.I)/(P * R)

Time = (100 *1/8* x) / (x * 10) = (100 *x)/(x*8*10)

= 5/4 = 1 1/4 years.

A sum of Rs. 12,500 amounts to Rs. 15,500 in 4 years at the rate of simple interest. What is the rate of interest?

A3%

B4%

C5%

D6%

ENone of these

**Answer:**** Option D **

**Explanation:**

S.I. = Rs. (15500 ⎯ 12500) = Rs.3000

Rate = [ 100 × 3000 / 12500 × 4 ]% = 6%

**Choose the correct option.**

Mr. Hamilton invested an amount of Rs. 13,900 divided in two different schemes A and B at the simple interest rate of 14% p.a. and 11% p.a. respectively. If the total amount of simple interest earned in 2 years be Rs. 3508, what was the amount invested in Scheme B?

ARs 6400

BRs 6500

CRs 7200

DRs 7500

ENone of these

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

Let the sum invested in scheme A be Rs. x and that in scheme B be Rs. (13900 ⎯ x)

Then, [ x × 14 × 2 / 100] ÷ [{(13,900 - x) × 11 × 2 } / 100] = 3508

28x ⎯ 22x = 350800 ⎯ (13900 × 22)

6x = 45000

x = 7500

So, sum invested in Scheme B = Rs. (13900 ⎯ 7500) = Rs.6400
