- 1. A man borrowed some amount, after 3 years he paid Rs.10,400/- with 10% interest, then how much Amount he borrowed?

A.) Rs.7000/-

B.) Rs.8000/-

C.) Rs.9000/-

D.) Rs.1000/-

Answer: Option 'B'

principal P = ?

Rate of interest R = 10%

Time T = 3 years

Accumulated Amount A = Rs.10400/-

A = P + I

A = P + PTR/100

A = P(1+ TR/100)

Rs.10400/- = P [1 + 3*10/100]

Rs.10400/- = P [1/1 + 3/10]

Rs.10400/- = P [10+3/10] = P[13/10]

Rs.10400/- = P * 13/10

==> P = Rs.104000/13

==> P = Rs.8000/-
