Compound Interest is an important chapter for banking exams. In every exams, you will find at least 1 question in every exam. From last 4 years I am analyzing the papers of various exams. I noticed that few questions are repeating in all the exams.

(a) Rs. 482

(b) Rs. 424

(c) Rs. 842

(d) Rs. 512

(a) 4%

(b) 5%

(c) 3%

(d) 8%

Now dividing the second equation by the first equation , we get :

Substituting this value of (1+ R/100 )3 in the first equation we get : 3p/2 = 6,690

∴ Required sum = Rs. 4,460.

[ Note : The sum is 2 times in 4 years ; it will be 8 ( i.e. 23 ) times in 4 x 3 years i.e. 12 years ]

=> the least possible value of n is 4.

Hence, the least number of years required is 4.

### Ques 1.

### solutions :

**Ans 1.****Ans 2**.Now dividing the second equation by the first equation , we get :

Substituting this value of (1+ R/100 )3 in the first equation we get : 3p/2 = 6,690

∴ Required sum = Rs. 4,460.

**Ans 3.****Ans 4.**

**Ans 5.**

**Hence , the sum will be 8 times itself in 12 years .**

[ Note : The sum is 2 times in 4 years ; it will be 8 ( i.e. 23 ) times in 4 x 3 years i.e. 12 years ]

**Ans 6.**

=> the least possible value of n is 4.

Hence, the least number of years required is 4.

**Ans 7.**
