# Divide Rs. 15,600 into Two Parts Such that the Interest on One at 5 Percent for 5 Years May Be Equal to that on the Other at 4 1/2 Percent for 6 Years. - Mathematics

Sum

Divide Rs. 15,600 into two parts such that the interest on one at 5 percent for 5 years may be equal to that on the other at 4 1/2 percent for 6 years.

#### Solution

Let one part = Rs. x

∴ Second part = Rs. (15,600 − x)

By the given condition

=("x"xx5xx5)/100=((15,600-"x")xx9/2xx6)/100

⇒ 25x = 27 × 15,600 − 27x

⇒ 25x + 27x = 27 × 15,600

⇒ 52x = 27 × 15,600

⇒ x =(27xx15,600)/52

= 27 × 300

= 8100

Hence one part = Rs.8100 and second part Rs. (15,600 − 8,100) = Rs.7,500
