Which formula is used here pls explain
100000*0.12*2*10 = Rs.240000
50000*0.1*10 = Rs.50000
see the question option 1 & 2
amount*interest rate*time*semi annually(1/2*4)
amount = 100000
interest rate = 12% or 12/100 = 0.12
time = 10 years
Half of 100000*interest rate*time
100000*1/2= Rs.50000
interest rate = 10% or 10/100 = 0.1
Time = 10 years
