Suppose the Principal amount was P

Rate of interest=R=12 % pa

Term =T= 3 years

Interest at the end of Term = I = 5400

Using formula;

I =\frac{P\times R\times T}{100}

Putting values;

5400 =\frac{P\times 12\times 3}{100}

\Rightarrow P =\frac{5400\times 100}{36}

\Rightarrow P =15000

So, the principal amount was 15000
