    Answer: 7.5%
    Explanation:

    Sum of money amount after  5 years = Rs. 9800
    and amount after      8 years = 12005

    Thus, Simple interest of 3 years = 12005 – 9800 = Rs. 2205
    then, time = 3 years

    Formula – Simple Interest = R x T x P/100
    where, R = rate, T = Time, P = Principal

    SI = Rs. 2205, Time = 3 years, P = Rs.9800 and rate =?
    2205 = 9800 x 3 x R/100
    R = 2205 x 100/9800 x 3
    R = 7.5%
