 # Simple Interest and Compound Interest Questions – For SSC, Bank exams

Simple Interest – साधारण ब्याज , Rate% – (दर), Time – समय, Compound Interest – चक्रवृद्धि ब्याज, Amount – मिश्रधन, Principle – मूलधन

Some Simple interest (साधारण ब्याज) Formulas
Simple Interest = Principle x Rate x Time (SI = PxR/100xT)
Time = Simple Interest/ Principal x Rate
Rate = Simple Interest/ Principal x Time
If SI and Time Is Constant then P x R = Constant

Example – A sum of money Rs 1750 is divided into two parts such that the simple interest 8% p.a on the first part and 6% p.a on the second part is equal after two years, then find the ratio of principle?
SI and Time are constant in both years so P x R = Constnat, P1 x R = P2 x R , P1 x 8 = P2 x 6
Ratio of Principle = P1 : P2 = 3:4 answer

Compound Interest Formulas Maths

Amount = Principle {1 +r/100}n

Compound Interest (CI)= Amount (A) – Principle (P)

3 Stages of compound interest calculation

Half yearly (छमाही) – r%/2 t x 2 yr

Quarterly (तिमाही) – r%/4 t x 4 yr

Monthly (मासिक) – r%/12 t x 12 yr

Difference Between Simple Interest and Compound Interest

1st Year 1st Year Interest is same in Both simple interest and Compound Interest.

2 Years – 1st year interest + IInd year interest both SI and CI + IInd year CI on Ist Year CI

Example – P- 1000, R- 10%, Year -2 Find the difference between CI and SI?

Sol – Ist year SI is 10% of 1000 = 100 and IInd Year SI is also 100, Total =200 but In Compound Interest Ist Year CI is 100 and IInd yr CI Also 100 Total 200 but here one more CI on 1st Year CI means 10% of 100 = 10, Total 2 Year CI = 210

Difference Between CI and SI is 210 – 200 = 10 answer.

3 Years – Ist Year CI + IInd Yr CI + IIIrd Yr CI in simple Interest same as Compound Interest Ist + IInd + IIIrd yr but here we add IInd yr CI on Ist yr CI + IIIrd yr CI on 2nd Year CI

CI

Ist yr – A
2nd yr – A + B
3rd yr – A + B + B+ C
