#### Question

What sum will amount to Rs 4913 in 18 months, if the rate of interest is $12\frac{1}{2} \%$ per annum, compounded half-yearly?

#### Solution

Let the sum be Rs x.
Given:
A = Rs 4913
R = 12 . 5 %
n = 18 months = 1 . 5 years
We know that:
$A = P \left( 1 + \frac{R}{200} \right)^{2n}$
$4, 913 = P \left( 1 + \frac{R}{200} \right)^{2n}$
$4, 913 = x \left( 1 + \frac{12 . 5}{200} \right)^3$
$4, 913 = x\left[ \left( 1 . 0625 \right)^3 \right]$
$x = \frac{4, 913}{1 . 1995}$
$= 4, 096$
Thus, the required sum is Rs 4, 096 .
