# 7.Maria invested ₹ 8,000 in a business. She would be paid interest at 5% per annum compounded annually. Find (i) The amount credited against her name at the end of the second year. (ii) The interest for the third year.

(i) Given: P = ₹ 8,000, R = 5% p.a. and n = 2 years

Amount=$$P(1+\frac{R}{100})^n$$

=$$8,000(1+\frac{5}{100})^2$$

=$$8,000(\frac{21}{20})^2$$

=$$8,000\times(\frac{21}{20}\times \frac{21}{20})$$

=$$20\times 441$$

=$$₹ \; 8,820$$

Thus, the amount credited at the end of 2 years=₹ 8,820

(ii) Interest for the third year=Amount after 3 years - Amount after 2 years

=$$P(1+\frac{R}{100})^n$$ - ₹ 8,820

=$$8,000(1+\frac{5}{100})^3$$ - ₹ 8,820

=$$8,000(\frac{21}{20})^3$$ - ₹ 8,820

=$$8,000\times(\frac{21}{20}\times \frac{21}{20}\times \frac{21}{20})$$ - ₹ 8,820

= ₹ 9,261 - ₹ 8,820

= ₹ 441

Hence we got, interest for the third year = ₹ 441
