(a) 2 years + 3 months = 2.25 yearsInterest = PRT/100 = £45,000 x 2.25 x 3 / 100 = £3,037.50(b) Amount = Principle x (1 + percentage rate)
Number of years
 Amount = £45,000 x (1.0285)
= £47,937.15Interest = £47,937.15
£45,000 = £2,937.15Less than simple interest by: £3,037.50 - £2,937.15 = £100.35(c) Initial investment = £30,137.60 / (1 + 0.031)
= £27,500(d) Interest = £30,137.60 - £27,500 = £2,637.60Rate of simple interest = 100 x £2,637.60 / (3 x £27,500) = 3.2%
