Understanding SI and CI by Solving Questions Video(17 QUESTIONS)

In this video an attempt to revise you the concepts of Simple Interest and Compound Interest has been done and ways of solving their problems have also been discussed. I hope you all will like the video. Do remember to leave your views in the comment section below. I would be more than happy to read them as it would help me assess my efforts. HAPPY STUDIES !!!!

Question 6. Ram and Shyam invested some money at 6 % and 7 % per annum Simple Interest respectively. At the end of two years they found that together they received Rs. 354 as interest.

Question 14. A sum of money invested at Simple Interest doubles itself in eight years. In how many years will it become 16 times itself at double this rate of Simple Interest ??

Question 15. The difference between compound interest compounded annually at 10 % per annum and simple interest at 12 % per annum on a certain sum of money for two years is Rs. 2640. Find the sum

Question 16. Sanjay borrowed Rs. 75,000 from two banks at compound interest, compounded annually. One bank charges interest at the rate of 15 % per annum and the other bank at 20 % per annum.
