# In a bank principal increases at the rate of r% per year. Find the value of r if ` 100 double itself in 10 years (loge 2 = 0.6931).

Let p, t, and r represent the principal, time and rate of interest respectively.

It is the given that the principal increases continuously at the rate r% per year.

Find: Find the value of r?

= = Integrating both sides, we get:

= = = p = .....-(i)

It is given that when t = 0, p = 100

= 100 = ek .....--(2)

Now, if t =10,then p = 2x100 =200

= = from (2)

= = = = r = 6.931

Hence, the value of r is 6.93 %.
