When we borrow money from some one or we lent out some money for a some certain period is called the Principle or Sum. So here we find the Principle or Sum based question tricks.here is amount is given and time, and rate percent is given we just use formula and obtain the principle or sum. 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.

**Example 1:**

Suresh take a sum of money at simple interest amounts to Rs.985 in 2 years and to Rs. 885 in 3 years , find The sum of money suresh was taken.

**Answer :**

**Step 1:** Simple interest in 1 year is = Rs.( 985 – 885 ) = 100.

**Step 2**: Simple Interest in 2 years = Rs.100 X 2 = 200.

**Step 3:** So,Principal = ( 985 – 200 ) = 785.

**Example 2: **

Samar take a sum from Anup at simple interest at 25x / 2 per annul and amounts to Rs, 3202.50 after 6 years. Find the Sum or Principal taken by Samar from Anup .

**Answer :**

First We consider sum is x and Rate percent is 25x / 2 and Time is 6 years, So

**Step 1:** Then S.I. = P X R X T / 100 = 3x / 4.

**Step 2:** Amount = Sum + Simple Interest = x + 3x / 4 = 7x / 4.

**Step 3:** 7x / 4 = 3202.50 and x = 3202.50 X 4 / 7 = 1830.

Samar taken sum from Anup is 1830.

**Example 3:**

What is the amount of Rs.16000 at 5% per annul compound interest in 3 years ?

**Answer :**

Time = 3

rate = 5%

16000 x ( 105 / 100 ) = 16000 x 1157625 / 1000000

= 18522

So the amount is 18522.

**Example 4:**

John borrowed some money at the rate of 4% p.a for the First 3 years. at rate of 7% p.a. for the next 4 years. If he pays a total interest of Rs. 12,600 at the end of seven years, how much money did he borrow ?

**Answer :**

Let sum borrowed x then P = x

( P X R X T / 100 )

( x X 4 X 3 / 100) + ( x X 7 X 4 / 100) = 12600

( 3x / 25 + 7x / 25 ) = 12600

10x / 25 = 12600

x = 12600 x 25 / 10

x = 31500

So, sum he borrowed = Rs. 31500.
