SI for two years = Rs 60


Amount = P + SI
1260 = P + 60
P = 1260 60 = Rs. 1200
Ie, the principle amount = Rs. 1200

To find out the rate of SI,


SI = PNR
R = SI / (P* N)
= 30 / (1200 *1)
= 2.5 %

Q. What is the capital required to earn a monthly interest of Rs 600 at 6% per annum?
Ans:
SI = 600 per month
R = 6%
SI = PNR /100
600 * 12 = P * 1 * 6 /100
P = 600 * 12 * 100 / 6 = 1,20,000

Q. A sum of money was put at SI at a certain rate for 2 years. Had it been ut at 1% higher rate, it would
have fetched Rs 24 more. Find the sum.

These type of problems can be solved in 2 steps


Ie 2 years , Rs 24 more
1 years , 24/ 2, ie 12 more
1 % of P = 12 (since the rate increased by 1%)
Ie p * 1/100 = 12
P = 1200
