CAT Question a Day

What annual installment will discharge an amount of Rs 5760 due in 6 years if the rate of simple interest is 8% per annum?

a. Rs. 740
b. Rs. 810
c. Rs. 800
d. Rs. 850

Answer and Explanation

Answer: (c)

Let each installment is of Rs 100

The first installment will be paid one year from now i.e. 5 years before it is actually due.

The second installment will be paid two years from now i.e. 4 years before it is actually due.

The third installment will be paid 3 years before it is actually due.

The fourth installment will be paid 2year before it is actually due.

The fifth installment will be paid 1 year before it is actually due.

The sixth installment will be paid on the day the amount is actually due.

So, on the first installment, the interest will be paid for 5 years, on the second for 4 years, on the third for 3 years, on the fourth for 2 years, on the fifth for 1 year and on sixth for 0 years.

In total, an interest for 15 years will be paid (5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 + 0) on Rs 100 @ 8 %.

Interest = {(100 x15x8)/100} = Rs. 120 and the principal is Rs 100 × 6 = Rs. 600.

The total loan that can be discharged is Rs 600 + 120 = Rs 720

Now for Rs 720 the installment required is Rs. 100,

for Rs. 5760 the installment = (100/720) x 5760 = Rs. 800
