Q:

A sum was put at simple interest at a certain rate for 3 years. Had it been put at 2% higher rate, it would have fetched Rs 360 more. Find the sum.

 A) Rs.4000 B) Rs.9000 C) Rs.5000 D) Rs.6000

Explanation:

Let sum = P and original rate = R. Then

[(P * (R+2) * 3)/100] - [ (P * R * 3)/100] = 360

3P*(R+2) - 3PR = 36000

3PR + 6P - 3PR = 36000

6P = 36000

P = 6000
