#### Solution

**Rs. 800 and 13%**

**Explanation:**

₨.1008 in 2 years

₨.1164 in `3 1/2` years

SI on 1008 for `1 1/2` year = 1164 − 1008 = 156

SI for 1 year`=156/3xx2=104`

SI for 2 years = 208

Principal + SI = 1008

Principal in starting = 1008 − 208 = ₨. 800

Rate of interest`=104/800xx100=13%`
