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 half-yearly. 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.
