# In how many years Rs. 1,00,000 will become Rs. 1,33,100 at a compound interest rate of 10% per annum? - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

In how many years Rs. 1,00,000 will become Rs. 1,33,100 at a compound interest rate of 10% per annum?

#### Solution

Principal P = ₹ 1,00,000

Amount A = ₹ 1,33,100

Rate of interest R = 10% p.a.

A = P(1 + "R"/100)^"T"

∴ 133100 = 100000(1 + 10/100)^"T"

∴ 1331/1000 = (1 + 1/10)^"T" = (11/10)^"T"

∴ (11/10)^3 = (11/10)^"T"

∴ T = 3 years

∴ ₹ 1,00,000 will become ₹ 1,33,100 after 3 years.
