Compound Interest Questions and Answers

Example 1:

The compound interest on Rs. 10,000 in 2 years at 4% per annum, the interest being compounded yearly, is

Options:

a. Rs 636.80
b. Rs 816
c. Rs 912
d. Rs 882.82

Explanation:

Rate of interest = 4%

Therefore, applying the net% effect formula for effective rate of compound interest for 2 years , we get

Net% effect = x + y + \frac{xy}{100}\%

x = y = 4%

= 4 + 4 + \frac{4\times 4}{100} = 8 + .16 = 8.16\%

CI = 8.16% of 10,000

= \frac{8.16\times  10000}{100} = ₹ 816

Hence, option B is correct,
