Here Principal (P) =Rs.20,000, Time = 1 year

Rate = 8%

(i) ∴ The interest of the first year =`(20,000xx8xx1)/100`

= Rs.1600

(ii) ∴ Amount after one year

i.e. Principal for second year = Rs.20,000 + Rs.1,600 = Rs.21,600

∴ Interest for second year =`(21,600xx8xx1)/100`

= 216 × 8

= Rs.1728

(iii) Final amount at the end of second year

= Rs. (21,600 + 1728) = Rs.23,328

(iv) Interest of two years = Rs.23,328 − Rs.20,000 = Rs.3,328
