## Simple Interest Questions with Solutions

Question 1:

The sum of Rs.800 amounts to Rs. 920 in 3 years at Simple Interest. Suppose that the rate increases by 3%. It would amount to how much?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Principal amount (P) = Rs. 800

Amount (A) = Rs. 920

We know the formula of Simple Interest

A = P + SI
Substitute the above values in the equation,

920 = 800 + SI

SI = 920 – 800

SI = 120

Therefore, Simple Interest SI = 120

We also know that,

SI = P * R * T / 100

Substituting the values in the above equation,

120 = 800 * R * 3 / 100

R = 120 / 3 * 8

R = 5 %

Therefore, the rate of interest is 5% per annum

As given that the amount increases in 3 years

Hence, 5 + 3 = 8 which implies R = 8

Now, we have to find the simple interest amount after 3 years

SI = P * R * T / 100

SI = 800 * 8 * 3 / 100

SI = 192

Finally, we find the amount after 3 years

A = P + SI

A = 800 + 192

A = 992

Therefore, the final amount after 3 years = Rs. 992

Hence, the final solution is Rs. 992

Question 2:

Find the simple interest on Rs. 68000 at 16 $$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$ per annum for 9 months?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Principal = Rs. 68000

Rate of Interest = 16 $$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$ = $$\frac { 50 }{ 3 }$$

Time = 9 Months = $$\frac { 9 }{ 12 }$$= $$\frac { 9 }{ 12 }$$ years

We also know that,

Simple Interest (SI) = P * R * T / 100

Substitute the above values in the equation

SI = 68000 * $$\frac { 50 }{ 3 }$$ * $$\frac { 3 }{ 42 }$$ / 100

SI = 170 * 50

SI = 8500

Therefore, the Simple Interest is 8500

Hence, the final solution is 8500

Question 3:

3500 principal amount is given at 7% per annum rate of interest. Find the amount of interest at the end of the 2 years which will be received?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Principal = 3500

Rate of Interest = 7% per annum

Time = 2 years

Simple Interest (SI) = P * R * T / 100

SI = 3500 * 7 * 2 / 100

SI = 70 * 7

SI = 490

Therefore, Simple Interest = 490

We also know that

Amount = Principal + Interest

A = 3500 + 490

A = 3990

The amount of interest which will be received at the end of 2 years = Rs. 3990

Hence, the final solution is 3990

Question 4:

Laila has 2400 in her account and the rate of interest is 5%. Find out the years that will take to earn the interest as Rs. 240?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Principal = 2400

Rate of Interest = 5%

Time =?

Simple Interest = 240

We know that,

Simple Interest (SI) = Principal * Rate * Time / 100

240 = 2400 * 5 * T / 100

T = 240/24 * 5

T = 10/5

T = 2 years

Therefore, it takes 2 years to earn the interest as Rs. 240

Hence, the final solution is 2 years

Question 5:

Find Simple Interest and amount on Rs. 150 for 4 years at 5% per annum?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Principal = 150

Time = 4 years

Rate of Interest = 5% per year

We know that,

I = P* T * R / 100

I = 150 * 4 * 5 / 100

I = Rs. 30

To find the amount, we use the formula

Amount = Principal + Interest

A = 150 + 30

A = 180

Therefore, the amount of Rs. 150 for 4 years at 5% per annum is 180 and Simple Interest is Rs. 30

Question 6:

Ravi borrowed Rs. 1500 from Rajesh for 3 years 3 months at the rate of interest at 12% per annum. Find the amount at which his debt will be clear?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Principal = 1500

Time = 3 years 3 months = 3 + (3/12) = 13/4 years

Rate of Interest = 12%

We know that,

I = P * T * R / 100

I = 1500 * $$\frac { 13 }{ 4 }$$ * 12 / 100

I = 15 * 13 * 3

I = 585

Therefore, the Interest is Rs. 585

To find the amount, we use the formula

Amount = Principal + Interest

A = 1500 + 585

A = 2085

Therefore, the amount Rs. 2085 will clear his debt in 3 years 3 months

Hence, the final solution is Rs. 2085

Question 7:

The principal is Rs. 6400, SI = Rs. 1152 and Rate of Interest = 6% per annum. Then find the time?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Principal = Rs. 6400

Simple Interest = Rs. 1152

Rate of Interest = 6% per annum

We know that,

I = P * T * R /100

T = I * 100 / P * R

T = 1152 * 100 / 6400 * 6

T = 3 years

Therefore, 3 years is the total time when the principal is Rs. 6400, SI = Rs. 1152 and Rate of Interest = 6% per annum

Hence, the final solution is 3 years.

Question 8:

The principal amount of Rs. 10,500 is invested for 9 years in an account paying annual simple interest. If the total amount of the interest earned was $1890. Find the interest rate? Solution: As given in the. question, Principal Amount = Rs. 10,500 Time = 9 years Total Interest Earned =$1890

We know that,

Rate of Interest = Interest / Principal * Time

R = 1890 / 10,500 * 9

R = 1890 / 94,500

R = 0.2

R = 2%

Therefore, the interest rate = 2%

We also know that,

I = P * T * R

I = 10,500 * 0.2 * 2

I = 1890

Hence, If the total amount earned was $1890 then the interest rate = 1890 Question 9: John won$26,000 at the casino. He wants to put the part in government bonds paying 3% simple interest and the remaining in paying real estate funds at 8% annual simple interest. His C.P.A tells him he needs to have a total annual income of \$1680 from two investments. How much should he invest in each of them?

Solution:

Let x be the amount invested at 3%,

then 26000 – x = amount invested at 8%

1680 = .03 + 0.8 (26000 – x)

1680 = 0.3x + 2080 – 0.8x

1680 = -0.5x + 2080

-400 = -0.5x

x = 8000

1680 = 8000. 0.03 + 0.08. 18000 where 8000. 0.03 is the interest from govt bonds

0.08. 18000 is the interest from real estate

= 240 + 1440 = 1680

Therefore, he should invest Rs. 240 in government bonds and Rs. 1440 in real estate

Question 10:

Kimber wants to save money and thus he opens a savings account in the bank with 1% interest per year. If she has 5,500 in her account. How much interest money will he earn in one year?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Principal amount = 5500

Rate of interest = 0.1%

Time = 1 year

We know that,

Interest = Principal * Time * Rate

I = 5500 * 0.1 * 1

I = 55

Therefore, the amount of money he earns in one year = Rs. 55
