Solution

At end of 1st year, 2nd year, and 3rd year ₹ 200 were deposited.

Rate of interest R = 5% p.a.

At end of 3 years, amount

= `200 + 200[1 + 5/100] + 200[1 + 5/100]^2`

= `200[1 + 1.05 + (1.05)^2]`

= 200[2.05 + 1.1025]

= 200 [3.1525] = 630.5

At end of 3 years, the account will have a balance of  ₹ 630.5.
