**QUESTION 2**

**Alex invested his savings in two parts. The simple interest earned on the first part at 15% per annum for 4 years is the same as the simple interest earned on the second part at 12% per annum for 3 years. Then, the percentage of his savings invested in the first part is**

62.5%

37.5%

60%

40%

Let ₹x be invested in the first instrument and ₹y be invested in the second instrument.

The interest earned in the first instrument = 0.15 * x * 4

The interest earned in the second instrument = 0.12 * y * 3

0.15 * x * 4 = 0.12 * y * 3

20 x = 12 y

x : y = 3 : 5

This means, 3/8th of the Savings was invested in the first instrument.

3/8 as a percentage is **37.5%**

THE ANSWER IS 37.5%

Q1.** **Veeru invested Rs 10000 at 5% simple annual interest, and exactly after two years, Joy invested Rs 8000 at 10% simple annual interest. How many years after Veeru’s investment, will their balances, i.e., principal plus accumulated interest, be equal?

@neraj-naiyar Sir,

Let assume its equal after N years

Veeru’s investment after N years = 10000 + 10000 × 51005100 × N

Joy’s investment after N years = 8000 + 8000 × 1010010100 × (N – 2)

Equating both

10000 + 10000 × 51005100 × N = 8000 + 8000 × 1010010100 × (N – 2)

10000 + 500N = 8000 + 800N – 1600

3600 = 300N

N = 12

Q1. A person invested a total amount of Rs 15 lakh.

Q1. Present sum of money amounts to Rs 800 in two years and to Rs 920 in three years, then the present sum of money is

A) 420

B) 690

C) 560

D) None of the options

Solution: C

Now = x

At the end of 2nd year = Rs 800

At the end of 3rd year = Rs 920

So, Interest gained in one year = 120

In two years Rs 240 was gained.

So, Present money = 800 - 240 = Rs 560
