Solution

P = Rs. 10,000, R = 6 °/o p.a.

Interest for first year 

`= ("Rs"  10000 xx 6 xx 1)/100`

= Rs600

Amount due after 1st year

=Rs. 10,000 +Rs. 600 =Rs 10,600 

Amount paid after 1st year = Rs. 5,600 

Balance amount = Rs. 10,600 - Rs. 5,600 =Rs. 5,000 

Interest for second year when r = 8°/o p.a. 

`= ("Rs"  5000 xx 8 xx 1)/100`

= Rs 400 

Amount due after 2nd year

= Rs. 5,000 + Rs. 400

=Rs 5,400

Prakash has to return Rs 5,400 to Rajesh at the end of second year.
