Answer:

Step 1:

Simple Interest, S.I. = Rs. 600

Time = 3 years

Let the rate of interest be “R” %.

We have,

S.I. =  P*R*T/100

Or, P = (600 * 100) / (R * 3)  ……. (i)

Step 2:

Compound interest, C.I. = Rs. 410

Time = 2 years

We know,  

C.I. = P [{1 + R/100}ⁿ - 1]

Since the P and R is the same for compound interest, therefore, substituting the value of P from (i),

we get  

Or, 410 = [(600 * 100) / (R * 3)]  [{1 + (R/100)² - 1]

Or, 0.0205 R = [1² + 2R/100 + (R/100)²] - 1

Or, 0.0205 R = 0.02R + (R/100)²

Or, 0.0005 R = (R/100)²

Or, R = 0.0005 * 10000 = 5 %

Thus, the rate of interest is 5%.

hope it help u ;)
