Aptitude | Compound Interest | Question 5
Find the amount returned for an investment of Rs.5,000 after 2 years, if the rate of interest for the 1st year is 5% and for the 2nd year is 10%.
Explanation: Amount = (Principal + Compound interest) = P(1 + R1/100)(1 + R2/100)(1 + R3/100)
Amount = 5000(1 + 5/100)(1 + 10/100)
= 5000 x (21/20)(11/10)
= 5000 x (231/200)
Interest = 5775 – 5000 = 775
