Explanation:

Time = 2 years 4 months = 2(4/12) years = 2(1/3) years.
Amount = Rs'. [8000 X (1+(15/100))^2 X (1+((1/3)*15)/100)]
=Rs. [8000 * (23/20) * (23/20) * (21/20)]

Q:

If the diagonal of a rectangle is 17cm long and its perimeter is 46 cm. Find the area of the rectangle.

 A) 110 B) 120 C) 130 D) 140

Explanation:

let length = x and breadth = y then

2(x+y) = 46         =>   x+y = 23

x²+y² = 17² = 289

now (x+y)² = 23²

=> x²+y²+2xy= 529

=> 289+ 2xy = 529

=> xy = 120

area = xy = 120 sq.cm

Q:

A sum of money lent at compound interest for 2 years at 20% per annum would fetch Rs.482 more, if the interest was payable half yearly than if it was payable annually . The sum is

 A) 10000 B) 20000 C) 40000 D) 50000

Explanation:

Let sum=Rs.x

C.I. when compounded half yearly = $\left[x{\left(1+\frac{10}{100}\right)}^{4}-x\right]=\frac{4641}{10000}$

C.I. when compounded annually =$\left[x{\left(\frac{20}{100}\right)}^{2}-x\right]=\frac{11}{25}$

$\frac{4641}{10000}x-\frac{11}{25}x=482$

=> x=20000
