After lending out an amount of Rs.9600 at a rate of 9/2 % per annum for a 1 year and 9 months, what was the S.I earned ? 

(A)

677

(B)

756

(C)

765

(D)

625



Answer: (B)

Explanation:

Given that, principal = P = Rs.9600, R = 9/2 % and T = 1 year and 9 months = 1 + 9/12 year = 7/4 years.
Now, we have to find the S.I for 7/4 years.
S.I = PRT/100 = Rs. 9600 x 9/2 x 7/4 x 1/100 = 12 x 9 x 7 = 756
Hence, the required S.I amount is Rs.756
