Question 14: Find the time, in years, in which Rs.4000 will produce Rs.630.50 as compound interest at 5% p.a. interest being compounded annually.

Question 15: Divide Rs.28,730 between A and B so that when their shares are lent out at 10% compound interest compounded per year, the amount that A receives in 3 years is the same as what B receives in 5 years.

Let the share of A = x Rs. Therefore share of B = (28730-x) Rs.

For A

For B

Given

Therefore B’s share =

Question 16:
A sum of Rs.34522 is divided between A and B, 18 years and 21 years old respectively in such a way that if their shares be invested at 5% per annum compound interest, both will receive equal money at the age of 30 years. Find the shares of each out of Rs.34522.

Let the share of A = x Rs. Therefore share of B = (34522-x) Rs.

For A

For B

Given

Therefore B’s share =

Question 17: A sum of Rs.44200 is divided between A and B, 12 years and 14 years old respectively, in such a way that if their portions be invested at 10% per annum compound interest, they will receive equal amounts on reaching 16 years of age.

Let the share of A = x Rs. Therefore share of B = (44200-x) Rs.

For A

For B

Given

Therefore B’s share =
