Practice the questions given in the worksheet on variable rate of compound interest.
If the rates of compound interest for successive years be (r \(_{1}\)%, r \(_{2}\)%, r \(_{3}\)%, r \(_{4}\)%, .................. ) then:
A = P( 1 + \(\frac{r_{1}}{100}\))(1 + \(\frac{r_{2}}{100}\))(1 + \(\frac{r_{3}}{100}\)) .............
Where,
A = amount;
P = principal;
r \(_{1}\), r \(_{2}\), r \(_{3}\), r \(_{4}\).......... = rates for consecutive years.
1. What principal will amount to $ 9,856 in two years, if the rates of interest for successive years are 10% and 12% respectively?
2. A sum of $ 4,000 is invested at 8% compound interest for
the first year and 10% for the second year. Find the amount after 2 years.
3. If the rates of compound interest for the first and the second year be 7% and 8% respectively, then find the compound interest on $ 6000 for 2 years.
4. Calculate the amount and the compound interest on $ 7,500 is 2 years when the rates of interest for successive years are 8% and 10% respectively.
5. What sum of money will amount to $ 5,724 in 2 years if the compound interest rates are 6% and 8% for successive years?
6. Calculate the compound interest accrued on $ 6,000 in 3 years, compounded yearly, if the rates for the successive years are 5%, 8% and 10% respectively.
7. If the rates of compound interest for the first and the second year be 8% and 7% respectively, then find the compound interest on $ 6000 for 2 years.
8. Calculate the amount of $ 15,000 in 2 years, compounded annually, if the rates for the successive years are 8% and 10% respectively.
9. Calculate the amount and the compound interest on $ 12,500 is 3 years when the rates of interest for successive years are 8%, 10% and 10% respectively.
10. A sum of $ 40,000 is invested at 10% per annum compound interest for 3 years. In the first two years the interest is reckoned yearly and then it is reckoned halfyearly. Find the amount after 3 years.
11. On a certain sum, the compound interest in 3 years amounts to $ 4,453.20. If the rates of interest for successive years are 5%, 8% and 10% respectively, find the sum.
12. A sum of $ 5,000 is lent for 3 years at compound interest. If the rates of interest for the successive years are 10%, 12% and 15% respectively, find the difference between the compound interest for the first year and the compound interest for the third year.
