1. A borrows Rs. 800 at the rate of 12% per annum simple interest and B borrows Rs. 910 at the rate of 10% per annum, simple interest. In how many years will their amounts of debt be equal?

A. 18

B. 20

C. 22

D. 24

E. 28

Correct option is : C

Let the period of time be T years

800 + 800 ×12 ×𝑇 = 910 + 910 ×10 ×𝑇

100                                        100

=> 800 + 96T = 910T + 91T

=> 96T – 91T = 910 – 800

=> 5T = 110

=> T = 110 = 22 years

Solution:

The first Rs. 20000 would become 20000(1.1)6 after 6 years, the second will become 20000(1.1)5.the third will become 20000 (1.1)4, the fourth will become 20000 (1.1)3 , the fifth will become 20000(1.1)2 and the sixth will become 20000 (1.1).

Total amount = 20000 [(1.1) + (1.1)2 + (1.1)3 + (1.1)4 + (1.1)5 + (1.1)6]

= (20000) (1.1) [ 1 + (1.1) + (1.1)2 + (1.1)3 + (1.1)4 + (1.1)5]
