Sum

A bill of a certain sum drawn on 28th February 2007 for 8 months was encashed on 26th March 2007 for ₹ 10,992 at 14% p.a. Find the face value of the bill.

#### Solution

We know that,

Banker’s discount (B.D.) = face value – cash value

∴ B.D. = F.V. – 10,992          …(i)

Date of bill drawn = 28th February 2007

Date of bill discounting = 26th March 2007

Period of bill = 8 months

Nominal due date = 28th October 2007

Legal due date = 31st October 2007

Number of days from date of bill discounting to legal due date

 Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Total 5 30 31 30 31 31 30 31 219 days

∴ n = 219/365 = 3/5

Since,

Banker’s discount = ("F.V." xx "n" xx "r")/100

∴ F.V. – 10,992 = ("F.V." xx 3/5 xx 14)/100    ....…[From (i)]

∴ F.V. – 10,992 = ("F.V." xx 3 xx 14)/(100 xx 5)

∴ F.V. – (42  "F.V.")/500 = 10,992

∴ (500  "F.V." - 42  "F.V.")/500 = 10,992

∴ (458  "F.V.")/500 = 10,992

∴ F.V. = 10992 xx 500/458

∴ F.V. = 12000

∴ Face value of the bill is ₹ 12,000
