# Sudershan deposited Rs. 32000 in a bank, where the interest is credited quarterly. If the rate of interest be 5% per annum, what amount will he receive after 6 months?

Present value, P = Rs.32000

Interest rate, R = 5% per annum

Time, n = 6 months = (1/2) years

Compounded quarterly,

Amount (A) = P [1 + (R/4)/100]4n [Where, P = Present value

R = Annual interest rate

n = Time in years]

A = 362000 [1 + (5/4)/100]2 [4n = 4 × 1/2]

A = 32000 [1 + 1/80]2

A = 32000 [81/80]2

A = 32000 × 81/80 × 81/80

A = 400 × 81 × 81/80

A = 5 × 81 × 81

A = 32805

Amount = Rs.32805

Sudershan will receive amount of Rs.32805 after 6 months.
