#### Question

Puneet has a Recurring Deposit Account in the Bank of Baroda and deposits Rs 140 per month for 4 years. If he gets Rs 8,092 on maturity, find the rate of interest given by the bank.

#### Solution

Installment per month(P) = Rs 140

Number of months(n) = 48

Let rate of interest(r) = r% p.a.

`∴ S.I = P xx (n(n + 1))/(2 xx 12) xx r/100`

`= 140 xx (48(48 + 1))/(2xx 12) xx r/100`

`= 140 xx 2352/24 xx r/100 = Rs 137.20`

Maturity value= Rs (140 × 48) + Rs (137.20)r

Given maturity value = Rs 8,092

Then Rs (140 × 48) + Rs (137.20)r = Rs 8,092

⇒ 137.20r = Rs 8,092 – Rs 6,720

`=> r = 1372/137.20 =10%`
