A sum increases by 48% in 6 years at certain rate of simple interest per annum, then how much years are required to approximately double the amount at the same annual rate of compound interest ?
Let rate=R% and principal amount=P, then with simple interest amount after 6 years = P + (PxRx6/100) = 1.48P
⇒ R=8%
With coumpound interest sum after 'n' years = P[1 + 8/100]^n = 2P
(27/25)^n = 2
⇒ n=9
Correct Option 6)
