H Harsh Kankaria

Given,

Principal amount, P = Rs 8,000

Compound rate of interest, R = 5% p.a.

Time period, n = 2 years

We know, Amount when interest is compounded annually, A =

$A =P(1+\frac{R}{100})^n$

$A =8000(1+\frac{5}{100})^2= Rs.\: 8,820$

Therefore, the amount credited against her name at the end of the second year is Rs 8,820
