Question 85

# If the amount received at 10% per annum Compound interest after 3 yrs is Rs 19965, then what will have been the principal (in Rs) amount?

Solution

P$$(1+\frac{10}{100})^{3}$$ = 19965

P$$(1+\frac{1}{10})^{3}$$ = 19965

P$$(\frac{11}{10})^{3}$$ = 19965

P$$(\frac{1331}{1000})$$ = 19965

P = 15000

So the answer is option B.
