#### Question

Find the amount which Ram will get on Rs 4,096, he gave it for 18 months at 12 1/2 %per annum, interest being compounded half yearly.

#### Solution

P = Rs 4,096

R =  12 1/2 % per annum = 25/4 % per half year

n = 18 months

There will be 3 half years in 18 months.

Therefore,

A = Rs[4096(1 + 25/400)^3] =  Rs[4096(1 + 1/16)^3]

= Rs (4096xx 17/16 xx 17/16  xx 17/16) = Rs 4913

Thus, the required amount is Rs 4,913.
