Principal: The money borrowed or lent for a certain period is called Sum or Principal.

Interest: The extra money paid for the money borrowed is termed as Interest.

## Formula

Where P is principal
R is Rate of Interets
T is Number of Years
```

Simple Interest for D number of days, If P is Principle amount and R is Rate.

A sum of money amounts to Rs. 9800 after 5 yers and Rs. 12005 after 8 years at the same rate of simple interest. What is the rate of interest per annum ?

## Solution

```Solution : Simple interest for 8 years - Simple interest of
5 years = Simple interest for 3 years = 12005 - 9800 = 2205

Principal = (9800-3675) = 6125
R= (100 * 3675) / (6125 * 5) = 12%
