# Frank Solutions for Chapter 3 Compound Interest Class 9 Mathematics ICSE

**1. Find the amount and the compound interest payable annually on the following:**

**(i) Rs 25000 for 1.1/2 years at 10% per annum.**

**(ii) Rs 32000 for 2 years at 7.1/2 % per annum.**

**(iii) Rs 10000 for 2.1/2 years at 6% per annum.**

**(iv) Rs 24000 for 1.1/2 years at 7.1/2% per annum.**

**Answer**

**(i)** Rs 25000 for 1.1/2 years at 10% per annum.

Here,

P = Rs 25000, t = 1.1/2 years, r = 10%

Now,

Amount after 1 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 25000 (1 + 10/100)

= 25000 (1 + 1/10)

On further calculation, we get,

= 25000 (11/10)

= 27500

Hence, principle for the next 6 months = Rs 27500

Interest for the next 6 months = (27500 × 6 × 10)/(100 × 12)

= 1375

Hence, amount after 1.1/2 years = Rs 27500 + Rs 1375

= Rs 28875

And CI = A – P

= Rs 28875 – Rs 25000

= Rs 3875

(ii) Rs 32000 for 2 years at 7.1/2% per annum.

Here,

P_{1} = Rs 32000 and r = 7.1/2 % = (15/2)%

So, Amount after 1 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 32000 {1 + 15/(2 × 100)}

= 32000 (1 + 3/40)

= 32000 (43/40)

We get,

= 34400

Therefore,

P_{2} = Rs 34400 and r = (15/2)%

So, Amount after 2 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 34400 {1 + 15/(2 × 100)}

On further calculation, we get,

= 34400 (1 + 3/40)

= 34400 (43/40)

We get,

= 36980

Hence, Amount = Rs 36980

And CI = A – P

= Rs 36980 – Rs 32000

We get,

= Rs 4980

**(iii) **Rs 10000 for 2.1/2 years at 6% per annum.

Here,

P_{1} = Rs 10000 and r = 6%

So, Amount after 1 year = P (1 + r / 100)

= 10000 (1 + 6/100)

= 10000 (106/100)

On simplification, we get,

= 10600

Hence, P_{2} = Rs 10600 and r = 6%

Amount after 2 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 10600 (1 + 6/100)

= 10600 (106/100)

On simplification, we get,

= Rs 11236

Hence, principle for the next 6 months = Rs 11236

Interest for the next 6 months = (11236 × 6 × 6)/(100 × 12)

= 337.08

Hence, amount after 1.1/2 years = Rs 11236 + Rs 337.08

= Rs 11573.08

And CI = A – P

= Rs 11573.08 – Rs 10000

= Rs 1573.08

**(iv)** Rs 24000 for 1.1/2 years at 7.1/2 % per annum.

Here,

P = Rs 24000, t = 1.1/2 years, r = 7.1/2 = (15/2)%

Now,

Amount after 1 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 24000 {1 + 15/(2 × 100)}

= 24000 (1 + 3/40)

= 24000 (43/40)

We get,

= 25800

Hence, principle for the next 6 months = Rs 25800

Interest for the next 6 months = (25800 × 15 × 6)/(200 × 12)

= 967.50

Hence, amount after 1.1/2 years = Rs 25800 + Rs 967.50

= 26767.50

And CI = A – P

= Rs 26767.50 – Rs 24000

= Rs 2767.50

**2. Find the amount and the compound interest payable annually on:**

**(a) Rs 16000 for 2 years at 15% and 12% for the successive years.**

**(b) Rs 17500 for 3 years at 8%, 10% and 12% for the successive years**

**Answer**

**(a)** For first year: P = Rs 16000, R = 15% and T = 1 year

Therefore, interest = Rs (16000× 15 × 1)/100

= Rs 2400

And, amount = Rs 16000 + Rs 2400

= Rs 18400

For second year: P = Rs 18400, R = 12% and T = 1 year

Therefore, interest = Rs (18400 × 12 × 1)/100

= Rs 2208

And, amount = Rs 18400 + Rs 2208

= Rs 20608

Hence, required amount = Rs 20608

And, Compound Interest = A – P

= Rs 20608 – Rs 16000

We get,

= Rs 4608

**(b)** For first year: P = Rs 17500, R = 8% and T = 1 year

Therefore, interest = Rs (17500 × 8 × 1)/100

= Rs 1400

And, amount = Rs 17500 + Rs 1400

= Rs 18900

For second year: P = Rs 18900, R = 10% and T = 1 year

Therefore, interest = Rs (18900 × 10 × 1)/100

= Rs 1890

And, amount = Rs 18900 + Rs 1890

= Rs 20790

For third year: P = Rs 20790, R = 12% and T = 1 year

Therefore, interest = Rs (20790 × 12 × 1)/100

= Rs 2494.80

And, amount = Rs 20790 + Rs 2494.80

= Rs 23284.80

Hence, required amount = Rs 23284.80

And, Compound Interest = A – P

= Rs 23284.80 – Rs 17500

= Rs 5784.80

**3. Calculate the amount and compound interest on Rs 20000 for 3 years at 10% per annum, interest being payable annually.**

**Answer**

Here,

P_{1 }= Rs 20000 and r = 10%

So, amount after 1 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 20000 (1 + 10/100)

= 20000 (110/100)

We get,

= 22000

Hence, P_{2} = Rs 22000 and r = 10%

Amount after 2 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 22000 (1 + 10/100)

= 22000 (110/100)

We get,

= 24200

Hence, P_{3} = Rs 24200 and r = 10%

Amount after 3 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 24200 (1 + 10/100)

= 24200 (110/100)

We get,

= 26620

Therefore, amount = Rs 26620

Also, CI = A – P

= Rs 26620 – Rs 20000

= Rs 6620

**4. Compute the compound interest for the third year on Rs 5000 invested for 5 years at 10% per annum, the interest being payable annually.**

**Answer**

For first year: P = Rs 5000, R = 10% and T = 1 year

Therefore, interest = Rs (5000 × 10 × 1)/100

= Rs 500

And, amount = Rs 5000 + Rs 500

= Rs 5500

For second year: P = Rs 5500, R = 10% and T = 1 year

Therefore, interest = Rs (5500 × 10 × 1)/100

= Rs 550

And, amount = Rs 5500 + Rs 550

= Rs 6050

For third year: P = Rs 6050, R = 10% and T = 1 year

Therefore, interest = Rs (6050 × 10 × 1)/100

= Rs 605

Hence, Compound Interest for third year is Rs 605

**5. Rakesh invests Rs 25600 at 5% per annum compound interest payable annually for 3 years. Find the amount standing to his credit at the end of the second year.**

**Answer**

For first year: P = Rs 25600, R = 5% and T = 1 year

Therefore, interest = Rs (25600 × 5 × 1)/100

= Rs 1280

And, amount = Rs 25600 + Rs 1280

= Rs 26880

For second year: P = Rs 26880, R = 5% and T = 1 year

Therefore, interest = Rs (26880 × 5 × 1)/100

= Rs 1344

And, amount = Rs 26880 + Rs 1344

= Rs 28224

Therefore, amount at the end of second year is Rs 28224

**6. Find the amount and compound interest on Rs 7500 for 1.1/2 years at 8%, payable semi-annually.**

**Answer**

Here,

P_{1} = Rs 7500 and rate of interest for half year (r) = 4%

So, amount after half year = P (1 + r/100)

= 7500 (1 + 4/100)

= 7500 (104/100)

We get,

= 7800

Hence, P_{2} = Rs 7800 and r = 4%

Amount after 1 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 7800 (1 + 4/100)

= 7800 (104/100)

We get,

= 8112

Hence, P_{3} = Rs 8112 and r = 4%

Amount after 1.1/2 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 8112 (1 + 4/100)

= 8112 (104/100)

We get,

= 8436.48

Therefore, amount = Rs 8436.48

Also, CI = A – P

= Rs 8436.48 – Rs 7500

= Rs 936.48

**7. A man invests Rs 24000 for two years at compound interest, if his money amounts to Rs 27600 after one year, find the amount at the end of second year.**

**Answer**

Amount after 1 year = P (1 + r/100)

27600 = 24000 (1 + r/100)

(1 + r/100) = 27600/24000

We get,

(1 + r/100) = 23/20

On further calculation, we get,

r/100 = (23/20) – 1

We get,

r/100 = 3/20

r = (100 × 3)/20

r = 15

Amount after 2 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 27600 {1 + (15/100)}

= 27600 (115/100)

We get,

= 31740

Therefore, the amount at the end of second year is Rs 31740

**8. How much will Rs 14000 amounts to 2 years at compound interest, if the rates for the successive years be 5% and 8% respectively?**

**Answer**

Here,

P_{1} = Rs 14000 and r = 5%

So, Amount after 1 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 14000 (1 + 5/100)

= 14000 (105/100)

We get,

= 14700

Hence, P_{2} = Rs 14700 and r = 8%

Amount after 2 year = P (1 + r/100)

= 14700 (1 + 8/100)

= 14700 (108/100)

We get,

= 15876

Therefore, amount = Rs 15876

**9. Find the amount and the compound interest on the following:**

**(i) Rs 8000 for 3 years at 10% per annum compounded annually**

**(ii) Rs 15000 for 2 years at 8% per annum compounded semi-annually**

**(iii) Rs 12000 for 1.1/2 years at 5% per annum compounded annually**

**(iv) Rs 25000 for 2 years at 6% per annum compounded semi-annually**

**(v) Rs 16000 for 3 years at 10%, 8% and 6% for successive years**

**Answer**

**(i)** Rs 8000 for 3 years at 10% per annum compounded annually

Here,

P = Rs 8000, t = 3 years, r = 10%

Now,

Amount = P (1 + r/100)^{t}

= 8000 (1 + 10/100)^{3}

= 8000 (11/10)^{3}

= 8000 × (1331/1000)

We get,

= 10648

Therefore, amount = Rs 10648

Also, CI = A – P

= Rs 10648 – Rs 8000

= Rs 2648

**(ii)** Rs 15000 for 2 years at 8% per annum compounded semi-annually

Here,

P = Rs 15000, t = 2 years, r = 8%

Since interest is compounded semi-annually, so

Amount = P (1 + r/200)^{2t}

= 15000 (1 + 8/200)^{4}

= 15000 (26/25)^{4}

= 15000 × (26/25) × (26/25) × (26/25) × (26/25)

On simplification, we get,

= 17547.88

Therefore, amount = Rs 17547.88

Also, CI = A – P

= Rs 17547.88 – Rs 15000

= Rs 2547.88

**(iii)** Rs 12000 for 1.1/2 years at 5% per annum compounded annually

Here,

P = Rs 12000, t = 1.1/2 years, r = 5%

Now,

Amount after 1 year = P (1 + r/100)^{t}

= 12000 (1 + 5/100)

On simplification, we get,

= 12000 (105/100)

= 12600

Now, interest for the next half year = (12600 × 5)/(100 × 2)

= 315

Therefore, amount = Rs 12600 + Rs 315

= Rs 12915

Also, CI = A – P

= Rs 12915 – Rs 12000

= Rs 915

**(iv) **Rs 25000 for 2 years at 6% per annum compounded semi-annually

Here,

P = Rs 25000, t = 2 years, r = 6%

Since interest is compounded semi-annually,

Amount = P (1 + r/200)^{2t}

= 25000 (1 + 6/200)^{4}

= 25000 (103/100)^{4}

On simplification, we get,

= 28137.72

Hence, amount = Rs 28137.72

Also, CI = A – P

= Rs 28137.72 – Rs 25000

= Rs 3137.72

**(v) **Rs 16000 for 3 years at 10%, 8% and 6% for successive years

Here,

P = Rs 16000, t = 3 years, r = 10%, 8%, 6% successively

Now,

Amount = P (1 + r_{1}/100) (1 + r_{2}/100) (1 + r_{3}/100)

= 16000 (1 + 10/100) (1 + 8/100) (1 + 6/100)

On simplification, we get,

= 16000 (11/10) (108/100) (106/100)

= 20148.48

Therefore, Amount = Rs 20148.48

Also, CI = A – P

= Rs 20148.48 – Rs 16000

= Rs 4148.48

**10. Find the amount and compound interest on Rs 15000 in 2.1/2 years at 10% p.a. compounded annually**

**Answer**

Here,

P = Rs 15000, t = 2.1/2 years, r = 10%

Now, Amount after 2 year = P (1 + r / 100)^{t}

= 15000 (1 + 10/100)^{2}

= 15000 (11/10)^{2}

We get,

= 18150

Now, interest for the next half year = (18150 × 10)/(100 × 2)

= 907.5

Therefore, Amount = Rs 18150 + Rs 907.50

= Rs 19057.50

Also, CI = A – P

= Rs 19057.50 – Rs 15000

= Rs 4057.50

**11. Find the amount on Rs 36000 in 2 years 15% p.a. compounded annually.**

**Answer**

Here,

P = Rs 36000, t = 2 years, r = 15%

Now,

Amount = P (1 + r/100)^{t}

= 36000 (1 + 15/100)^{2}

= 36000 (115/100)^{2}

We get,

= 47610

Therefore, amount = Rs 47610

**12. Find the amount and compound interest on Rs 50000 in 1.1/2 years at 8% p.a. compounded half-yearly.**

**Answer**

Here,

P = Rs 50000, t = 1.1/2 years, r = 8%

Since interest is compounded half-yearly,

So, amount = P (1 + r/200)^{2t}

= 50000 (1 + 8/200)^{3}

= 50000 (104/100)^{3}

We get,

= 56243.20

Therefore, Amount = Rs 56243.20

Also, CI = A – P

= Rs 56243.20 – Rs 50000

= Rs 6243.20

**13. How much will Rs 25000 amount to in 2 years at compound interest, if the rates for 1 ^{st }and 2^{nd }years be 4% and 5% p.a. respectively?**

**Answer**

Here,

P = Rs 25000, t = 2 years, r = 4%, 5% successively

Now,

Amount = P (1 + r_{1}/100) (1 + r_{2}/100)

= 25000 (1 + 4/100) (1 + 5/100)

On further calculation, we get,

= 25000 (104/100) (105/100)

= 27300

Therefore, Amount = Rs 27300

**14. Find compound interest on Rs 31250 for 3 years, if the rates of interest for 1 ^{st}, 2^{nd}and 3^{rd}years be 8%, 10% and 12% respectively.**

**Answer**

Here,

P = Rs 31250, t = 3 years, r = 8%, 10%, 12% successively

Now,

Amount = P (1 + r_{1}/100) (1 + r_{2}/100) (1 + r_{3}/100)

= 31250 (1 + 8/100) (1 + 10/100) (1 + 12/100)

On further calculation, we get,

= 31250 (108/100) (110/100) (112/100)

= 41580

Therefore, Amount = Rs 41580

**15. Calculate the rate percent when Rs 28000 amount to Rs 30870 in 2 years at compounded annually.**

**Answer**

Here,

P = Rs 28000, A = 30870, t = 2 years

Now,

Amount = P (1 + r/100)^{t}

30870 = 28000 (1 + r/100)^{2}

⇒ (1 + r/100)^{2} = (30870/28000)

We get,

(1 + r/100)^{2} = (441/400)

⇒ (1 + r/100)^{2} = (21/20)^{2}

Hence,

(1 + r/100) = (21/20)

⇒ r/100 = (21/20) – 1

⇒ r /100 = 1/20

⇒ r = 100/20

⇒ r = 5

Therefore, rate of interest is 5%
