# What will Rs. 7000 Become at the End of 5 years? If

If Rs.5000 becomes Rs.5700 in a year’s time, what will Rs. 7000 become at the end of 5 years at the same rate of interest?

- Rs.10500
- Rs.11900
- Rs.12700
- Rs.7700

**Answer: (2) Rs.11,900
Explanation:-**

Given- Principal = Rs.5,000, Amount = Ra.5,700 and time = 1 year

Simple interest = A mount – Principal

= 5,700 – 5,000 = 700

Formula- Simple interest = Principal x time x rate /100

Then, Rate = 700 x 100/5000 x 1

= 14%

And the interest of 5 years of Rs.7000 –

Simple interest = 14 x 5 x 7000/100

= Rs.4,9,00

Then, the amount will be end of the five years = 7,0,00 + 4,900 = 11,900

Hence, the answer is (2) Rs.11, 900.
