Calculate the difference between Simple Interest​​ and compound Interest on Principal​​ amount of 30, 000 borrowed at the interest rate of 8% for 2 years.

• Sum of 21 observations (x) = Sum of first 10 observations + sum of last 10 observations + 11th ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ observation.

X = 21* 70 = 1470

Sum of first 10 terms = 10*65 = 650

Sum of last 10 terms = 10*750

Therefore,

11th​​ observation = 1470 â€“ 650 â€“ 750​​

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 70

• Sum of age of a family = 25*4 = 100

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ New sum of the age = 80

Sum of the ages after 5 years in the family of 3 = (80+15)/3 = 95/3

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 31.6 years

• Sum of prime numbers between 1 to 20 = ​​ 77

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ Average = 77/8 = 9.6

• A = 9000[1+(12/100)]2

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 9000[28/25]2

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 11289. 6

CI = 11289.6 â€“ 9000​​ = Rs. 2289.6

• SI = PRT/100

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 20P/100

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = P/5

CI = A- P

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = {P [1+ (r/100)​​ n​​ â€“ P

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = (121 P/100) â€“ P

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ =21P/100

21P/100 â€“ P/5 = 200

P/100 = 200

P = Rs. 20000

• Let the amount invested be Rs. x.

As per the question,

SI1​​ + SI2​​ = P/100 ( R1T1​​ + R2T2​​ )

​​ 1000 = P/100 (45+ 50)

1000 =​​ 95P/100

P = (1000*100)/95

​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 1052.6 (approx.)

• ​​ Selling Price = Cost Price + Profit

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 15600 + (35/100)*15600

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 15600 + 5460

• ​​ Loss = (15/100)*1700

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = Rs. 255

Profit​​ = (20/100)*1700

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 340

Overall Profit = Rs. 85

Gain percentage = (85/ 3400)*100

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 2.5%

• ​​ Speed of the car = 2300/ 20 = 115 km/h

​​ Speed of the truck = (2/5)* 115

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 46 km/h

• Total distance covered = 300+ 500 = 800 m​​

​​ Time taken = 90 seconds

Speed = 800/90 = 8.8 m/s

• Loss = ​​ (30000/50000)*100

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = (3/5)*100

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 60%

• Required Percentage = (1500/3500)*100

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 42.8% ​​​​

• C.P. = 8000+ 1000 = Rs. 9000

​​ Profit = (2000/9000)*100​​

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 200/9

​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ = 22.2%
