#### Question

Calculate the amount and compound interest on Rs 62500 for 1 1/2 years at 8% per annum compounded half yearly.

#### Solution

Principal (P) = Rs 62,500

Rate = 8% per annum or 4% per half year

Number of years =1 1/2

There will be 3 half years in 1 1/2 years.

A =  P(1 + R/100)^n = Rs [62500 (1 + 4/100)^3]

= Rs (62500 xx 26/25 xx 26/25 xx 26/25)

= Rs 70304

C.I. = A − P = Rs 70304 − Rs 62500 = Rs 7,804

Is there an error in this question or solution?
