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

**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/- **

**Answer: Option 'C'**

**Let the principal be Rs x. Then, S.I = Rs(16x/25)
Let, rate = R% p.a
and time = R yearss. Then,
S.I = (P×T×R)/100 ==>16X/25
= x×R×R/100 ==> R×R = 64 = 8
Hence,rate = 8% p.a and time = 8 years **
