## SOLUTION : ### ❒ Given :-

• Capital of Anand as on April 1, 2015 = Rs. 2,00,000
• Capital of Biswas as on April 1, 2015 = Rs. 3,00,000
• Capital introduced by Anand on July 1, 2015 = Rs. 50,000
• Capital introduced by Biswas on July 1, 2015 = Rs. 60,000
• Amount withdrawn by Anand on October 1, 2015 = Rs. 30,000
• Amount withdrawn by Biswas on January 1, 2016 = Rs. 15,000
• Rate of Interest on Capital = 8% p.a.

### ❒ To Calculate :-

• Interest payable on Capital to Anand during the year 2015 – 2016 = ?
• Interest payble on Capital to Biswas during the year 2015 – 2016 = ?

### ❒ Required Formula :-

• Interest on Capital in given rate of interest for a specific period of time is calculated under the following formula : ____________________________________________

### ❒ Calculation of Interest payable on Capital to Anand during the year 2015 – 2016 :- Here,

• Capital of Anand as on April 1, 2015 = Rs. 2,00,000
• Rate of Interest on Capital = 8% p.a.
• Time = 3 months (From April 1 to June 30)

Using the formula of Interest on Capital, we get,

• Interest on Capital = Amount of Capital × Rate of Interest × Time

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 2,00,000 × 8% × 3 months

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 2,00,000 × × Interest on Capital = Rs. 4,000

Again,

• Capital introduced as additional capital by Anand on July 1, 2015 = Rs. 50,000

∴ Total Capital = Rs. 2,00,000 + Rs. 50,000

➨ Total Capital = Rs. 2,50,000

• Rate of Interest on Capital = 8% p.a.
• Time = 3 months ( From July 1 to September 30)

Using the formula of Interest on Capital, we get,

• Interest on Capital = Amount of Capital × Rate of Interest × Time

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 2,50,000 × 8% × 3 months

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 2,50,000 × × Interest on Capital = Rs. 5,000

And,

• Amount withdrawn from Capital by Anand on October 1, 2015 = Rs. 30,000

∴ Remaining Capital = Rs. 2,50,000 – Rs. 30,000

➨ Remaining Capital = Rs. 2,20,000

• Rate of Interest on Capital = 8% p.a.
• Time = 6 months (From October 1 to March 31)

Using the formula of Interest on Capital, we get,

• Interest on Capital = Amount of Capital × Rate of Interest × Time

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 2,20,000 × 8% × 6 months

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 2,20,000 × × Interest on Capital = Rs. 8,800

Now,

• ✪ Total Interest on Capital of Anand = Rs. 4,000 + Rs. 5,000 + Rs. 8,800

Total Interest on Capital of Anand = Rs. 17,800

### ❒ Calculation of Interest payable on Capital to Biswas during the year 2015 – 2016 :- Here,

• Capital of Biswas as on April 1, 2015 = Rs. 3,00,000
• Rate of Interest on Capital = 8% p.a.
• Time = 3 months (From April 1 to June 30)

Using the formula of Interest on Capital, we get,

• Interest on Capital = Amount of Capital × Rate of Interest × Time

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 3,00,000 × 8% × 3 months

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 3,00,000 × × Interest on Capital = Rs. 6,000

Again,

• Capital introduced as additional capital by Biswas on July 1, 2015 = Rs. 60,000

∴ Total Capital = Rs. 3,00,000 + Rs. 60,000

➨ Total Capital = Rs. 3,60,000

• Rate of Interest on Capital = 8% p.a.
• Time = 6 months ( From July 1 to December 31)

Using the formula of Interest on Capital, we get,

• Interest on Capital = Amount of Capital × Rate of Interest × Time

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 3,60,000 × 8% × 6 months

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 3,60,000 × × Interest on Capital = Rs. 14,400

And,

• Amount withdrawn from Capital by Biswas on January 1, 2016 = Rs. 15,000

∴ Remaining Capital = Rs. 3,60,000 – Rs. 15,000

➨ Remaining Capital = Rs. 3,45,000

• Rate of Interest on Capital = 8% p.a.
• Time = 3 months (From January 1 to March 31)

Using the formula of Interest on Capital, we get,

• Interest on Capital = Amount of Capital × Rate of Interest × Time

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 3,45,000 × 8% × 3 months

⇒ Interest on Capital = Rs. 3,45,000 × × Interest on Capital = Rs. 6,900

Now,

• ✪ Total Interest on Capital of Biswas = Rs. 6,000 + Rs. 14,400 + Rs. 6,900

Total Interest on Capital of Anand = Rs. 27,300
