#### Solution

Principal (P) = Rs.9600

Rate (R) = 10% p.a.

Period (n) = 3 years

(i) ∴ Interest for the first year ="PRT"/100

=(9600xx10xx1)/100

= Rs.960

(ii) Amount at the end of first year

= P + S.I.

= Rs.9600 + 960

= Rs.10560

(iii) Principal for the second year = Rs.10560

Interest for the second year =(10560xx10xx1)/100

= Rs.1056

∴ Amount after second year = Rs.10560 + 1056 = Rs.11616

(iv) Principal for the third year = Rs.11616

Interest for the third year =(11616xx10xx1)/100

= 116.16 × 10

= Rs.1161.60
