a) 20

b) 22

c) 24

d) 25

e) None of these

Answer –**d) 25**

**Explanation :**

2900 = p + p*(4/100)*4, p = 2500

**A sum of money becomes four times at simple interest rate of 5%. At what rate it becomes seven times**

a) 8%

b) 10%

c) 12%

d) 14%

6p = p*(r/100)*60

**Arya borrows rupees 6000 from a bank at SI. After 4 years she paid Rs 2500 to the bank and at the end of 5 years from the date of borrowing he paid Rs 4560 to settle the account. Find the rate of interest (approx)**

a) 3.25%

b) 3.50%

c) 3.85%

d) 4%

e) None of these

Answer –**c) 3.85%**

**Explanation :**

Total interest she paid = 6000*(r/100)*4 + 3500*(r/100)*1 = 275r

total interest = 2500 + 4560 – 6000 = 1060

so 1060 = 275r, r = 3.85% approx

**A sum of money lent out at simple interest amounts to rupees 840 in 3 years and to rupees 1200 in 8 years. Find the rate of interest**

840 = p + p*(r/100)*3

Solve both equations to get r

e) None of these

Answer –**a) 2800, 2000**

b) 1000

c) 1200

d) 1600

Answer –**c) 1200**

**Explanation :**

400 = p*(r/100)*5, pr = 8000

SI = 2p*(r/100)*5 = pr/10 = 8000/10 = 800

Total interest = 400 + 800 = 1200
