# If some amount in rupees at the annual rate of simple interest 5% for six years :

If some amount in rupees at the annual rate of simple interest 5% for six years become Rs.2,600, then the amount is

- Rs. 1,800
- Rs. 1,500
- Rs. 2,000
- Rs. 2,200

**Answer: (3) Rs. 2, 000**

**Explanation:-**

Let the principal be Rs. X

**Formula – **

Simple Interest = Principal x rate time /100

Amount = Principal + Simple Interest

**Given-Rata = 5%, Time = 6 years & Amount = Rs. 2, 600**

Then, X + X x 5 x 6 /100 = 2600

X + 3 X/10 = 2600

(10 X + 3 X)/10 = 2600

13 X = 2600 x 10

13 X = 26,000

X = 26, 000/13

X = 2, 000

Then, the amount is Rs. 2, 000.

Hence, the answer is (3) Rs. 2, 000.
