1. Rs.5,120 was partly invested in scheme A at 20% p.a. compound interest compounded annually for 2 years and partly in scheme B at 5% p.a. simple interest for 4 years. Both the schemes earn equal interests. How much was invested in scheme A?

A) Rs.1,600    B) Rs.1,400    C) Rs.2,000    D) Rs.2,400    E) Rs.2,200

Sol: Lets, amount invested in scheme A = x

amount invested in scheme B = (5120 − x)

44x = 102400 − 20x

64x = 102400 ⇒ x = 1600

Ans: A

2. Himavanth invested a certain amount Rs.x in scheme A offering simple interest 10% per annum for five years and Rs. 2x in scheme B offering compound interest compounded annually 10% per annum for two years.

A) Rs.3500     B) Rs.3100    C) Rs.4500    D) Rs. 4125    E) Rs.3600

50x − 42x = 36000

8x = 36000 ⇒ x = 4500

Ans: C

3. Prakash invested Rs.P for 2 years in scheme A, which offered 11% p.a. simple interest. He also invested Rs.P + 500 in scheme B, which offered 20% compound interest compounded annually, for 2 years.

144P + 72000 − 122P = 105000

22P = 33000 ⇒ P = 1500

Ans: D

4. Rs.5,200 was partly invested in scheme A at 20% p.a. compound interest compounded annually for 2 years and partly in scheme B at 12% p.a. simple interest for 5 years. Both the schemes earn equal interests. How much was invested in scheme A?

Sol: lets amount invested in scheme A = x

amount invested in scheme B = 5200 − x

312000 − 60x = 44x

104x = 312000 ⇒ x = 3000

Ans: D

5. Pushpa invested Rs.12000 for 2 years in a scheme ‘x’ offering compound interest compounded annually of 15% p.a. and gives an interest that is Rs.20 less than the interest received on investing Rs.y for a year at simple interest of 20% p.a.. Find the value of ‘y’. (In Rs.)

6. Prameela invested Rs.2,68,900 in scheme M offering simple interest of y% p.a. for 4 years. She re-invests the interest received from scheme M in scheme N offering compound interest of 30% p.a. and the amount received Rs.2,54,486.96 at the end of 2 years. Find the value of Y.

A) 19    B) 16    C) 17   D) 14     E) 12

1817764y = 25448696 ⇒ y = 14

Ans: D

7. Kumar invests 2/3rd of a certain sum in scheme A for 5 years at the rate of 14% simple interest per annum. The rest of the amount he invests in scheme B for 2 years at the rate of 8% compound interest per annum compounded annually. The difference between the amount received from schemes A and B is Rs.11,168. What was the sum invested in scheme B?

A) Rs.12,000      B) Rs.7,500     C) Rs.5,000    D) Rs.8,000     E) Rs.6,000

8. Equal amount of money was invested in two different schemes A and B. Scheme A offers simple interest at a rate of 12.5% p.a. and scheme B offers compound interest compounded annually at a rate of 10% p.a. If the interest received through scheme A after 5 years was Rs.498 more than that received through scheme B after 2 years, what was the total money invested in these schemes together?

A) Rs.2400     B) Rs.3600     C) Rs.2800     D) Rs.1200    E) Rs.1800

0.625x − 0.21x = 498

0.415x = 498

415x = 498000 ⇒ x = 1200

amount invested in scheme A & B = 2x

= 2 × 1200 = 2400

Ans: A
