basic mathematics mcqs with solution

Solution:

R1=5%

R2=8%

Total Simple Interest = Rs 300

Time = 3 years

Money lent at 5% : Money lent at 8% =?

We start by supposing that; So, So, for first amount; For second amount part; So, But Yearly interest is calculated by dividing total interest by number of years!

From given data we can calculate it as;  This interest  of given data and our calculated total interests should be same; Solving for ‘y’  So, money lent at 5% interest is Rs 800 and money lentat 8% interest is 1550-y = 1550-800= Rs 750

Their ratio is;

800:750

which finally settles to be

16:15
