**Find Compound Interest Tricks**

In case of Compound Interest the interest is vary according to time but the first year it is equal that is 1st year Interest is

**Compound Interest = Simple Interest.**

But after that year it is increases. So we can find Compound interest using tricks. This type of problem are given in Quantitative Aptitude which is a very essential paper in banking exam. Under below given some more example for your better practice.

**Here is principal is given rate percent and Time is given and find the Compound interest.**

**Example 1:** What would be compound interest obtained on an amount of Rs 8000 at the rate of 10% p.a after 2 year ?

**Answer :** **Short cut tricks :**

For 1st year interest is = 8000 x 10 / 100 = Rs. 800

Second year = 800+ 800+80 = Rs. 1680

After 2 years compound interest is 1680.

**Example 2 :** What would be the compound interest to be obtained on an amount of Rs. 8000 at the rate of 10% p.a after 2 years ?

**Answer :** **Formula :** C.I = P [(1 + r / 100)^{n} – 1]

8000 x [(1 + 10 / 100)^{2} – 1]

= Rs.1680

**Example 3:** Raju invest and amount of Rs. 8460 /- 6% for 2 years, What approx amount he would obtain at the end of year two years?

**Answer:** 8460 x 106 x 106 / 100 x 100 = 9505/-(approx)

**Example 4:** What will be the compound interest on a sum of Rs .6500/- at the rate of 6 p.c.p.a for 2 years ?

**Answer :** (6500 x 53 x 53 / 50 x 50 -1)

= Rs. 803.4/-

**Example 5:** Find the amount of Rs. 18,000 at 5% per annum compound interest in 3 yrs.

**Answer :** 18000 x 21 x 21 x 21 / 20 x 20 x 20 = 20837.25

**Example 6:** Find the compound interest obtained on an amount Rs. 8000 at the rate of 12% p.a after 2 years.

**Answer :** CI = 8000 [ (112 / 100)^{2} – 1 ]

= Rs.2035.2

**Example 7:**

The simple interest deposited on sum of certain principle is Rs. 8400/- in seven years at the rate of 12 p.c.p.a. What should be the C.I deposited on that principle at the rate of 6 p.c.p.a in 2 years ?

**Answer :** X x 7 x 12 / 100 = 8400

x = Rs. 10,000/-

So, Compound Interest is = ( 10,000 x 105 x 105 / 100 x 100 ) – 10,000

= 11236 – 10,000 = Rs. 1236

**Example 8:**

Principal is 15000 at rate percent 4% p.c.p.a for 2 years, and compound annually,

Find the C.I.

**Answer:**

We apply the formula to obtain C.I that is

C.I = p [(1 + r / 100)n – 1]

P = 15000.

R = 4%.

Time = 2 years.

= 15000 x [( 1 + 4 / 100)2 – 1].

= 15000 x [ 26 x 26 / 25 x 25 – 1]. [ as we put down (26 / 25)2 ]

= 15000 x 51 / 625.

= 1224.

**Example 9:**

The **Simple Interest** accrued on an **amount of Rs. 22,500 **at the end of 3 years is** Rs. 10800. **what would be the **Compound Interest accrued** on the **same amount** at the **same rate** at the **end of two years ?**

**Answer :**

Here is given** amount = 22,500**, **Time = Years 3** and** S.I = 10800.**

So, we need to find Rate percent.

**Step 1:** we know S.I = P x R x T / 100

10,800 = 22,500 x R x 3 / 100

R = 1080000 / 67500 = 16 % So R = 16 %.

**Step 2:** Compound Interest accrued on the **same amount** at the **same rate **at the **end of two years**

is we apply the formula

C.I = 22500 x (116 / 100 x 116 / 100 – 1 )

= 22500 x( 116 x 116/ 10000 – 1) = 22500 x( 13456 / 1000) – 1 = 22500 x (1.3456 – 1) = 22500 x 0.3456 =7776

So the C.I end of two years is 7776.

**Example 10:** What would be the compound interest on an amount 6000 at the rate 12 p.c.p.a for 2 years ?

**Answer :**

= 6000[ (112 / 100)^{2} – 1]

= 6000 x 2544 / 10000

= 1526.4

**Example 11:**

What will be the compound interest on a sum of Rs. 4800/- at the rate of 6 p.c.p.a for 2 years ?

**Answer:**

Compound Interest = P[1+R/100]^{n}-1

4800[( 1 + 6 / 100 )^{2} – 1]

4800 [53 x 53 / 50 x 50 – 1 ]

=593.28

So the compound interest is 593.28

**Example 12:**

What would be the compound interest obtained on an amount of Rs. 1,600 at the rate of 8 p.c.p.a after two years ?

**Answer:**

Amount = SI +Principal

compound Interest = p ( 1 + r / 100)^{n} – 1600

1600 ( 1 + 8 / 100 )^{2} – 1600

( 1600 x 27 x 27 / 25 x 25 ) – 1600

= ( 1866.24 – 1600 )

= 266.24

**Example 13:**

What would be the compound interest obtained on an amount of Rs. 6000 at the rate of 10% p.a. after 2 years ?

**Answer :**

6000[ (1 + 10 / 100) ]^{n}-1

= 6000 [ (11 / 10 )^{2} – 1]

= 6000 x 21 / 100

= 1260

So the compound interest is 1260.

**Example 14: **

What would be the compound interest obtained on an amount of Rs.8850 at the rate of 12 p.c.p.a after two years?

**Answer :**

Amount = 8850

rate = 12

Time = 2 years

compound interest = ?

A = 8850 ( 1 + 12 / 100 )^{2}

= 8850 x 28 x 28 / 25 x 25

= 11101.44

So Amount = Rs.11101.44

C.I = ( 8850 – 11101.44 ) = 2251.44

**Example 15:**

What would be the compound interest obtained on an amount of Rs.7500 at the rate of 6 p.c.p.a after two years ?

**Answer :**

Amount = 7500

rate = 6

Time = 2 years

compound interest = ?

= 7500 [ 106 x 106 / 100 x 100 ] – 7500

= 7500 x 11236 / 10000 -7500

= 8427 – 7500

= 927

So, compound interest after 2 years is 927.

**Example 16:** In after the period of 2 years What would be the compound interest get on a Principal amount of 6400/- at the rate of 8 p.c.p.a.

**Answer :**

**Shortcut tricks :**

In first year always same so,6400 x 8 / 100 = 512

In Second year compound interest is 512 + 40.96. [ So, 512 x 8 / 100 = 40.96 ]

So total compound interest is 512 + 512 + 40.96 = **1064.96**

**Example 17:** What compound interest accrued on an amount of Rs. 18000 at the rate of 10 p.c.p.a for the 2 years ?

**Answer:** Formula: A = P(1 + R / 100)^{t}

= 18000 ( 1 + 10 / 100)^{2}

= 18000 x 22 x 22 / 20 x 20

= 21780

C.I. = (21780 – 18000)

= Rs. 3780.

sir can you explain the compound interest short cut Technic how you solved

p.a.=6400

r=8

for 1st year t=1

s.i.=6400*1*8/100=512

for second year u need 6400’s s.i. + 512’s s.i.

for one year now t=1

6400’s s.i. for one year=512

512,s =512*1*8/100=40.96

then add all

Its really good and quite helpful

Thanks 1

Why do we use a minus 1 in the above formulae?

to determine compountd interest directly use minus 1 else the answer we get is amount.so to calculate directly CI they used

amount=p(1+r/100)^n

compound interest =p((1+r/100)-1)^n

i am not sufficient for this method .Don’t use the easy method .Time is very important …

compound interest simple method fpr example

P.a=10000

R=10%

T=3yr

solve:

1000*3=3000

100*3=300

10*1=10

total =3310

compound interest=3310Ans

to determine difference on CI AND SI for 2years what short trick is used

P*(R/100)^2 = Difference

(CI)2 yrs -( SI)2 yrs =12,R%=20%,P=?

(SI)2 yrs=20+20=40% ;

(CI)2 yrs=(20+20+(20*20/100))% (shortcut)

=(40+(400/100))%

=(40+4)%

=44%

(CI)2 yrs -(SI)2 yrs =44-40 =4

we know that, P=(CI)2 yrs -(SI)2 yrs

given that, (CI)2 yrs -(SI)2 yrs =12

P = 44/100 -40/100

P=100

we need to multiply by 3 becoz in questn given 12

P=300

If % increases or a% and b% overall % increases is given by (a+b+ab/100)%

ex:20% increase for 2 yrs is

=( 20+20+20*20/100)%=44%
