1) Danish Invested Rs 6400 in Share Marketing and Received Rs 7800 at the End of Five Years. Calculate the Profit.

Amount invested = Rs 6400
The amount received at the end of five years = Rs 7800
Profit = Amount received at the end of five years – Amount invested.
= Rs 7800 – Rs 6400
= Rs 1400
Therefore, Danish received Rs 1400 as profit.

2) Sonali Has a Saving Account in a Bank. She Saved Rs 5000 for 1 Year. If the Bank Provides Her with 10% Interest. Find the Total Amount She Will Receive at the End of 1 Year.

Step 1:

Amount saved = Rs 5000.
Rate of interest = 10%
Interest is calculated on the total amount.
Interest amount = Rs 10% of 5000.
=Rs(10100 × 5000)
=Rs(10 × 50)
=Rs 500

Step 2:

Amount saved = Rs 5000
Interest provided by bank = Rs 500
Total amount received at the end of the month = Rs 5000 + Rs 500
= Rs 5500

1) Ranu and Jiya Want to Visit Museum, but They Don’t Have Money. Ranu Took a Loan of Rs 2500 From Her Friend and Promised to Return Her Rs 3500 After Two Months. Jiya Took a Loan From the Bank and Had to Pay Rs 1000 for Three Months. Calculate Who Has to Pay More Interest. And How Much More?

Step 1:

Amount Ranu took from her friend = Rs 2500.
Interest paid = Rs 3500 – Rs 2500
= Rs 1000

Step 2:

Amount Jiya took from the bank = Rs 2500
Amount she paid in 1 month = Rs 1000
Amount she paid in 3 months = Rs 1000 × 3
= Rs 3000

Step 3:

Amount Jiya took from the bank = Rs 2500.
Amount she has to pay = Rs 3000
Interest paid by Jiya = Rs 3000 – Rs 2500
= Rs 500

Step 4:

Interest paid by Ranu = Rs 1000
Interest paid by Jiya = Rs 500
Therefore, Ranu paid more interest.
Amount Ranu paid more = Rs 1000 – Rs 500
= Rs 500

Therefore, Ranu paid Rs 500 more than Jiya.
