1. r = 3% p.a implies half yearly interest is 1.5 so 1+reff = 1.015^2 = 1.030225  therefore reff = 3.0225

2. new value of machine = (1-0.2)*old value i.e. 0.8*oldvalue after first year 0.8*0.8*old value is the value of the machine so ((0.8)^n)*100000 = 30000  implies (0.8)^n = 0.3  implies n = log(0.3)/log(0.8) implies n = 5.39 years

3. 1.4P = P(1.02)^n implies 1.4 = (1.02)^n taking logarithms we get n = log(1.4)/log(1.02) = 17 years(approx)

4. amount in simple interest = P + P*6*3/100 Compound interest it is P(1.06)^3 so P(1.06)^3 - P + P*6*3/100 = 110 implies P(1.191016-1.18) = 110 implies P(0.011016) = 110 implies P = 9985.48 Tejaswi Kasturi (student-cpt)     17 May 2012

5.new value = (1-10/100)*old value implies new value = 0.9*(old value) so scrap value = 100000*(0.9^10 = 34867.84

6. r = 7% p.a i.e 1.75% per quarter(7/4). so 1+reff = (1.0175)^4 = 1.071859 implies reff = 7.1859

7. Let P be the population new popoulation after a year will be P*(1+birthrate)*(1-deathrate) = P*1.394*0.806 = P*1.123564

so P*(1.123564)^n = 2*P imlplies n = log(2)/log(1.123456) = 5.95 years(approx) intermediate(ipc)course (no)     17 May 2012
