Times required by Simple interest for the Principal to become Y times itself
  • Last Updated : 06 May, 2021

Given that a certain amount of money becomes T1 times itself in N1 years. The task is to find the number of years i.e. N2 so that the amount becomes T2 times itself at the same rate of simple interest.
Examples: 
 

Input: T1 = 5, N1 = 7, T2 = 25 
Output: 42
Input: T1 = 3, N1 = 5, T2 = 6 
Output: 12.5 
 

 

Approach: 
 

Let us consider the 1st Example where T1 = 5, N1 = 7, T2 = 25 
Now, Let P principal becomes 5P i.e (T1 * P) then Simple interest received is 4P. 
(As S.I = Amount – P)
Now, in the second case, P has become 25P i.e (T2 * P) then simple interest received is 24P.
Now if we received 4P interest in N1 i.e 7 years then we will get an interest of 24P 
in 7 * 6 years i.e in 42 years. 
 



Formula: 
 

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
 

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to return the no. of years
float noOfYears(int t1, int n1, int t2)
{
    float years = ((t2 - 1) * n1 / (float)(t1 - 1));
 
    return years;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int T1 = 3, N1 = 5, T2 = 6;
 
    cout << noOfYears(T1, N1, T2);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation of the approach
class GFG
{
     
// Function to return the no. of years
static float noOfYears(int t1, int n1, int t2)
{
    float years = ((t2 - 1) * n1 / (float)(t1 - 1));
 
    return years;
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    int T1 = 3, N1 = 5, T2 = 6;
 
    System.out.println(noOfYears(T1, N1, T2));
}
}

Python3




# Python3 implementation of the approach
 
# Function to return the no. of years
def noOfYears(t1, n1, t2):
 
    years = (t2 - 1) * n1 / (t1 - 1)
    return years
 
# Driver code
if __name__ == "__main__":
 
    T1, N1, T2 = 3, 5, 6
    print(noOfYears(T1, N1, T2))

C#




// C# implementation for above approach
using System;
 
class GFG
{
     
// Function to return the no. of years
static float noOfYears(int t1, int n1, int t2)
{
    float years = ((t2 - 1) * n1 / (float)(t1 - 1));
 
    return years;
}
 
// Driver code
public static void Main(String[] args)
{
    int T1 = 3, N1 = 5, T2 = 6;
 
    Console.WriteLine(noOfYears(T1, N1, T2));
}
}

PHP




<?php
// PHP implementation for above approach
     
// Function to return the no. of years
function noOfYears($t1, $n1, $t2)
{
    $years = (($t2 - 1) * $n1 / ($t1 - 1));
 
    return $years;
}
 
// Driver code
$T1 = 3;
$N1 = 5;
$T2 = 6;
 
print(noOfYears($T1, $N1, $T2));
 
// This code contributed by mits
?>

Javascript




<script>
 
// Javascript implementaion of the approach
 
// Function to return the no. of years
function noOfYears(t1, n1, t2)
{
    var years = ((t2 - 1) * n1 / (t1 - 1));
 
    return years;
}
 
// Driver code
var T1 = 3, N1 = 5, T2 = 6;
document.write( noOfYears(T1, N1, T2));
 
// This code is contributed by rutvik_56.
</script>
Output: 
12.5
