#### Solution

Monthly deposit (P) = Rs 800

"n" = 3/2 xx 12 months = 18 months

Maturity value (M.V) = Rs 15084

Now, M.V = P x N + P x  ("n"("n" + 1))/(2 xx 12) xx "r"/100

⇒ 15084 = 800 x 18 + 800 x (18 xx 19)/24 xx "r"/100

⇒ 15084 = 14400 + 114r

⇒ 114r = 684

⇒ r = 684/114 = 6%

Thus, the rate of interest per anum is 6%.
