Banker's Discount Questions

FACTS  AND  FORMULAE  FOR  BANKER'S  DISCOUNT  QUESTIONS

 

 

Banker's Discount : 

Suppose a merchant 'A' buys goods worth, say Rs. 10,000 from another merchant 'B' at a credit of say 5 months.Then, B prepares a bill, called the bill of exchange. A signs this bill and allows B to withdraw the amount from his bank account after exactly 5 months.

 

The date exactly after 5 months is called nominally due date. Three days (known as grace days) are added to it to get a date, known as legally due date.

 

Suppose B wants to have the money before the legally due date. Then he can have the money from the banker or a broker, who deducts S.I on the face value (i.e., Rs. 10,000 in this case) for the period from the date on which the bill was discounted (i.e , paid by the banker) and the legally due date. This amount is known as Banker's Discount (B.D) Thus, B.D is the S.I on the face value for the period from the date on which the bill was discounted and the legally due date.

 

Banker's Gain (B.G) = (B.D) - (T.D) for the unexpired time.

 

Note : When the date of the bill is not given, grace days are not to be added.

 

IMPORTANT FORMULAE

1. B.D = S.I on bill for unexpired time

 

2. B.G = (B.D) - (T.D) = S.I  on T.D=T.D2P.W

 

 

 

3. T.D=P.W×B.G

 

 

4. B.D=Amount×Rate×Time100

 

5. T.D=Amount×Rate×Time100+Rate×Time

 

6. Amount=B.D×T.DB.D-T.D

 

7. T.D=B.G×100Rate×Time

Q:

The B.G. on a certain sum 4 years hence at 5% is Rs. 200. What is the present worth?

A) Rs. 4500 B) Rs. 6000
C) Rs. 5000 D) Rs. 4000
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Rs. 5000

Explanation:

T = 4 years

R = 5%

Banker's Gain, BG = Rs.200

 

TD= BG×100TR=200×1004×5=Rs.1000

 

 TD=PW×BG

 

1000=PW×200

 

=>PW = Rs.5000

Q:

The present worth of a bill due sometime hence is Rs. 1100 and the true discount on the bill is Rs. 110. Find the banker's discount and the banker's gain.

A) Rs.145 B) Rs.136
C) Rs.121 D) Rs.112
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Rs.121

Explanation:

T.D. =Ö(P.W.*B.G)

B.G. =(T.D.)2/ P.W.      

       = Rs.[(110x110)/ 1100]

       = Rs. 11.

 

B.D.= (T.D. + B.G.) = Rs. (110 + 11) = Rs. 121.

Q:

The true discount on a bill of Rs. 2160 is Rs. 360. What is the banker's discount?

A) Rs. 432 B) Rs. 422
C) Rs. 412 D) Rs. 442
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Rs. 432

Explanation:

F = Rs. 2160

TD = Rs. 360

PW = F - TD = 2160 - 360 = Rs. 1800

True Discount is the Simple Interest on the present value for unexpired time

=>Simple Interest on Rs. 1800 for unexpired time = Rs. 360

Banker's Discount is the Simple Interest on the face value of the bill for unexpired time

= Simple Interest on Rs. 2160 for unexpired time

=(360/1800)* 2160

= (1/5) * 2160

=Rs. 432

      = Rs.9

B.D - T.D = Rs.9

B.D = Rs.(120 +9) = Rs.129
