Hence principal paid = 100 – 47.5 = Rs. 52.5
P for 3rd year = 950 – 52.5 = Rs. 897.50
Interest for 3rd year = 5% of 897.50 = Rs. 44.875
Amount paid = Rs. 100
Hence principal paid = 100 – 44.875 = Rs. 55.125
P for 4th year = 897.5 – 55.125
= Rs. 842.375 Rs. 842.38
Incorrect
Interest for 1st year = 5% of 1,000 = Rs. 50
Amount paid = Rs. 100
Hence principal paid = Rs. 50
P for 2nd year = 1,000 – 50 = Rs. 950
Interest for second year = 5% of 950 = Rs. 47.50
Amount paid = Rs. 100
Hence principal paid = 100 – 47.5 = Rs. 52.5
P for 3rd year = 950 – 52.5 = Rs. 897.50
Interest for 3rd year = 5% of 897.50 = Rs. 44.875
Amount paid = Rs. 100
Hence principal paid = 100 – 44.875 = Rs. 55.125
P for 4th year = 897.5 – 55.125
= Rs. 842.375 Rs. 842.38

114. Question
1 pointsIf x + y =12 and xy = 32, then =?
Correct
x + y = 12, xy = 32
(x – 8) (x – 4) = 0
x = 4, 8
y = 8, 4
=
Incorrect
x + y = 12, xy = 32
(x – 8) (x – 4) = 0
x = 4, 8
y = 8, 4
