Compound Interest
10. A sum of money 2 times itself at compound interest in 15 years. In how many years, it will become 8 times of itself ?
Here Let `P = X, N_1 = 15` then `A = 2 X`
`A = P (1 + R/100)^(N_1)`
`=> 2 X = X (1 + R/100) ^ 15`
`=> (1 + R/100) ^ 15 = 2 -> (1)`
After `N_2` years it will become `8` times of the original sum
`A = P (1 + R/100)^(N_2)`
`=> 8 X = X (1 + R/100)^(N_2)`
`=> (1 + R/100)^(N_2) = 8 -> (2)`
Now, solving `(1)` and `(2)`, we get
`N_2 = 45` years
Hence, the sum of money `8` times itself after `45` years.
