Sum

What would be the simple interest at the rate of 9 1/2% per annum on Rs. 6000 for 2 1/2 years?

#### Solution

Rate of interest per annum R = 9 1/2% = 19/2%

Principal P = ₹ 6000

Duration T = 2 1/2 = 5/2 years

∴ Simple Interest,

I = "PRT"/100 = 6000 xx 19/2 xx 5/2 xx 1/100

= 15 × 19 × 5

= 1425

∴ The simple interest would be  ₹ 1425.
