Solution

1. 800
A = P [ 1 + r/100 ]n
968 = P [ 1+ 10/100 ]2 = 968 = P [ 121/100
P = 968×100/121 

2. 2000
CI = P [ 1+ r/100 ]2 - P
2100 = P [ 1+ 10/100 ]2 - P
2100 = P [ 121/100 ] - P
2100 = 21P/100
P = 10,000 , SI = 2,000

4.  1852.20
1323 = 1200 [ 1 + r/100 ]3
441/100 = [21/20]2 = [1+r/100]2
R =5%
A = P [ 1+ r/100 ]n 
A = 1600 [ 21/20]3 = 1852.20

5. 3.77 ft. 
 Time = 21/2 years , R % = 1/8×100⇒25/2 %
A = P {[ 1+R/100 ]n× [ 1+R/100 ]}
A = P{[ 1+25/100×2 ]2 × [ 1+ 25/100×2×2 ] }
A = 10×81/64×17/16
A = 13.77
