Question of The Day30-11-2020

What is the ratio of compound interest earned on a certain amount at the rate of 10% for 3rd year and 5th year?


Correct Answer : c ) 100 : 121

Explanation :

According to the question:

Rate of interest = 10%

Time1 = 3 years

Time2 = 5 years

We know that,Compound interst CI=\({P[(1+{r\over100})^n}-1]\),

Here, P = principal amount, r = rate of interest and n = time

⇒CI of 3rd year=\({P[(1+{10\over100})^3}-1]-{P[(1+{10\over100})^2}-1]\)

⇒CI of 3rd year=\({P(1+{10\over100})^2}(1+{10\over100}-1)\)

⇒CI of 3rd year=\({P(1+{1\over10})^2}({1\over10})\)

Similarly, CI of 5th year =\({P(1+ {1\over10})^4}({1\over10})\)

Thus, the required ratio=\({P({11\over10})^2}({1\over10}) : {P({11\over10})^4}({1\over10}) \)

=102 :112

= 100 : 121

Hence, (c) is the correct answer.
