Solution

Here, P = Rs 15,000; r = 12°/o p.a.; t = 2 years 

∴ A = ` "P" (1 + "r"/100)^n`

`= "Rs"  15000  (1 + 12/100)^2`

`= "Rs"  15000 (112/100)^2`

`= "Rs"  15000 (28/25)^2`

`= "Rs"  15000 xx 28/25 xx 28/25`

∴ A = Rs 18816

Hence, amount due after 2 years =Rs 18,816 

Amount paid after 2 years= Rs 7,500 

Balance amount =Amount due after 2 years - amount paid after 2 years = cost of the scooter= Rs (18,816 - 7,500) 

Cost of the scooter= Rs 11,316
