Given,

Principal,P =Rs 62500,

Compound interest Rate,R = 8% compounded half yearly for 1.5 years.

Since it is compounded half yearly, R becomes half = 4%, and time period doubles, n = 3 years.

We know, Amount when interest is compounded annually, A = $P(1+\frac{R}{100})^n$

Therefore, the required amount = $62500(1+\frac{4}{100})^3$  = Rs.70304

And Compound Interest, CI = Amount - Principal = Rs. (70304 - 62500) = Rs. 7804
