Word Problems on Simple Interest
Word Problems on Simple Interest are solved here: 1. Robert deposits $ 3000 in State Bank of India for 3 year which earn him an interest of 8%.What is the amount he gets after 1 year, 2 years and 3 years? Solution: In every $ 100, Robert gets $ 8. (Since rate is 8% → 8 for every 100) Therefore, for $ 1 he gets = $ 8/100 And for $ 2000 he gets = 3000 x 8/100 = $ 240 Simple Interest for 1 year = $ 240. Simple Interest for 2 year = $ 240 x 2 = $ 480 Simple Interest for 3 year = $ 240 x 3 = $ 720 Therefore, Amount after 1 year = Principal (P) + Simple Interest (SI) = 3000 + 240 = $ 3240 Amount after 2 years = Principal (P) + Simple Interest (SI) = 3000 + 480 = $ 3480 Amount after 3 years = Principal (P) + Simple Interest (SI) = 3000 + 720 = $ 3720 We observe from the above example that, the Interest cannot be calculated without Principal, Rate and Time. Therefore, we can conclude that Simple Interest (S.I.) depends upon: (i) Principal (P) And therefore, the formula for calculating the simple interest is Simple Interest (SI) = {Principal (P) × Rate (R) × Time (T)}/100 Principal (P) = Amount (A) – Interest (I) Interest (I) = Amount (A) – Principal (P) 2. Richard deposits $ 5400 and got back an amount of $ 6000 after a year. Find the simple interest he got. Solution: Principal (P) = $ 5400, Amount (A) = $ 6000 Simple Interest (SI) = Amount (A) – Principal (P) = 6000  5400 = 600 Therefore, Richard got an interest of $ 600. 3. Seth invested a certain amount of money and got back an amount of $ 8400. If the bank paid an interest of $ 700, find the amount Sam invested. Solution: Amount (A) = $ 8400, Simple Interest (SI) = $ 700 Principal (P) = Amount (A) – Interest (I) = 8400  700 = 7700 Therefore, Seth invested $ 7700. 4. Diego deposited $ 10000 for 4 year at a rate of 6% p.a. Find the interest and amount Diego got. Solution: Principal (P) = $ 10000, Time (T) = 4 years, Rate (R) = 6% p.a. Simple Interest (SI) = {Principal (P) × Rate (R) × Time (T)}/100 = (10000 x 6 x 4)/100 = $ 2400 Amount (A) = Principal (P) + Interest (I) = 10000 + 2400 = $ 12400 The interest Diego got = $ 2400. Therefore, the amount Diego got $ 12400. Related Links: ● Simple Interest.
