(i) Monthly installment = Rs. 2500

n =2 years = 24 months, Amount deposited = 2500 cross times 24 = Rs. 60000

Maturity value = Rs. 67,500

Interest on his deposit = Rs. (67500 – 60000) = Rs. 7500

(ii) Now, Interest =begin mathsize 12px style fraction numerator straight n left parenthesis straight n plus 1 right parenthesis over denominator 2 end fraction cross times fraction numerator Installment space cross times space Rate over denominator 100 cross times 12 end fraction end style
