## Bankers Discount Questions

1.
The banker's gain on a sum due 3 years hence at 12% per annum is Rs. 270. The banker's discount is:

Correct Ans:1020
Explanation:
T.D. =(B.G*100)/(R*T)=Rs(270*100)/(12*3) = Rs. 750.

B.D. = Rs.(750 + 270) = Rs. 1020.

2. If the true discount on a certain sum due 6 months hence at 15% is Rs. 120, what is the banker's discount on the same sum for the same time and at the same rate?

Correct Ans:129
Explanation:
B.G. = S.I. on T.D.

= Rs.(120 x 15 x 1/2 x 1/100)

= Rs. 9.

(B.D.) - (T.D.) = Rs. 9.

B.D. = Rs. (120 + 9) = Rs. 129.

3. The banker's gain on a bill due 1 year hence at 12% per annum is Rs. 6. The true discount is:

Correct Ans:50
Explanation:
T.D. = B.G. x 100 / R x T = Rs.6 x 100 / 12 x 1= Rs. 50.

4. The true discount on a bill of Rs. 540 is Rs. 90. The banker's discount is:

Correct Ans:108
Explanation:
P.W. = Rs. (540 - 90) = Rs. 450.

S.I. on Rs. 450 = Rs. 90.

S.I. on Rs. 540 = Rs.90 x 540 / 450= Rs. 108.

B.D. = Rs. 108.

5. The present worth of a sum due sometime hence is Rs. 576 and the banker's gain is Rs. 16. The true discount is:

Correct Ans:96
Explanation:
T.D. = Take root for P.W. x B.G. = 576 x 16 = 96.

6. The banker's discount on a bill due 4 months hence at 15% is Rs. 420. The true discount is

Correct Ans:400
Explanation:
T.D = B.D X 100 / 100 + (R X T)
= 420 X 100 / 105
= 400

7.
The certain worth of a certain sum due sometime hence is Rs. 1600 and the true discount is Rs. 160. The banker's gain is:

Correct Ans:16
Explanation:
B.G. =(T.D.)^2/P.W.

= Rs. (160*160)/1600 = Rs. 16.

8.
The banker's discount of a certain sum of money is Rs. 72 and the true discount on the same sum for the same time is Rs. 60. The sum due is:

Correct Ans:360
Explanation:
Sum =(B.D. x T.D.)/(B.D. - T.D.)

= Rs. (72 x 60) / (72 - 60)

= Rs. (72 x 60) /12

= Rs. 360.

9.
The banker's gain on a bill due 1 year hence at 12% per annum is Rs. 6. The true discount is:

Correct Ans:50
Explanation:
T.D. =(B.G. x 100)/ (R x T)= Rs. (6 x 100) / ( 12 x 1) = Rs. 50.

10. The bankers discount on Rs 1800 at 12 % per annum is equal to the true discount on Rs 1872 for the same time at the same rate .Find the time.

Correct Ans:4 months
Explanation:
S.I on Rs 1800 = T.D on Rs 1872

P.W of Rs 1872 is Rs 1800

Rs 72 is S.I on Rs 1800 at 12%

Time = (100 * 72)/(12 * 1800)

= 1/3 years = 4 months

11. The present worth of a bill due sometime hence is Rs. 1100 and the true discount on the bill is Rs. 110. Find the banker's discount and the banker's gain.

Correct Ans:121
Explanation:
T.D. =Ö(P.W.*B.G)

B.G. =(T.D.)2/ P.W.

= Rs.[(110x110)/ 1100]

= Rs. 11.

B.D.= (T.D. + B.G.) = Rs. (110 + 11) = Rs. 121.

12.
The banker's discount on a certain sum due 2 years hence is11/10of the true discount. The rate percent is:

Correct Ans:5%
Explanation:
Let T.D. be Re. 1.

Then, B.D. = Rs.11/10= Rs. 1.10.

Sum = Rs. (1.10*1)/(1.10-1) = Rs. (110/10)= Rs. 11.

S.I. on Rs. 11 for 2 years is Rs. 1.10

Rate = [(100 x 1.10)/(11 x 2 )]% = 5%.

13. A bill for Rs. 6000 is drawn on July 14 at 5 months. It is discounted on 5th October at 10%. Find the banker's discount, true discount, banker's gain and the money that the holder of the bill receives.

Correct Ans:5880
Explanation:
Face value of the bill = Rs. 6000.

Date on which the bill was drawn = July 14 at 5 months. Nominally due date = December 14.

Legally due date = December 17.

Date on which the bill was discounted = October 5.

Unexpired time : Oct. Nov. Dec.

26 + 30 + 17 = 73 days =1/ 5Years

B.D. = S.I. on Rs. 6000 for 1/5 year

= Rs. (6000 x 10 x1/5 x1/100)= Rs. 120.

T.D. = Rs.[(6000 x 10 x1/5)/(100+(10*1/5))]

=Rs.(12000/102)=Rs. 117.64.

B.G. = (B.D.) - (T.D.) = Rs. (120 - 117.64) = Rs. 2.36.

Money received by the holder of the bill = Rs. (6000 - 120) = Rs. 5880.

14. The banker's discount on Rs. 1650 due a certain time hence is Rs. 165. Find the true discount and the banker's gain.

Correct Ans:15
Explanation:
Sum = [(B.D.xT.D.)/ (B.D.-T.D.)]

= [(B.D.xT.D.)/B.G.]

T.D./B.G. = Sum/ B.D.

=1650/165

=10

Thus, if B.G. is Re 1, T.D. = Rs. 10.

If B.D.is Rs. ll, T.D.=Rs. 10.

If B.D. is Rs. 165, T.D. = Rs. [(10/11)xl65]

=Rs.150

And, B.G. = Rs. (165 - 150) = Rs, 15.

15. The bankers gain of a certain sum due 2 years hence at 10% per annum is Rs 24 .The percent worth is

Correct Ans:600
Explanation:
T.D = (B.G * 100) / (Rate * Time)

(24*100) / (10 * 2)

= 120.

P.W = (100 *T.D) / (Rate * Time)

= (100 * 120) /(10 * 2)

= 600
