#### Solution

1) Monthly instalment = Rs. 2500

n = 24, Amount deposited = 2500 x 24 = Rs. 60000

Maturity value = Rs. 67500

Interest on his deposit = Rs. (67500 – 60000) = Rs. 7500

2) Now Interest = `("n"("n"+1))/2 xx ("Instalment" xx "Rate")/(100 xx 12)`

`7500 = (24 xx 25)/2 xx (2500 xx "Rate")/(100 xx 12)`

Rate = `(7500 xx 100 xx 24)/(24 xx 25 xx 2500)` = 12% p.a
