Naveen lends 30000 to Ravi for 2 years at 20% p.a on compound interest on condition that the interest is compounded half yearly for the first year and compounded annually for the second year. What will be the total interest earned by Naveen at the end of two years? Solution: 30000 [1+10/100]^2 x [1+20/100]  30000 = 13560 How they combine two C I equations in single step?

30000[1+ 10/100]^2 is the principle after the first year compounded twice at (20%)/2= 10%= 10/100 interest each time. Then (30000[1+ 10/100]^2)(1+ 20/100) is that amount at 20% interest for the second year. Subtracting the original principle, 30000, gives the interest that has accrued.

30000(1.10) = 33000 33000(1.10) = 36300 = 30000(1.10)^2 36300(1.20) = 43560

Well, if you can't see that what I'm showing is 43560 (final amount)  30000 (start amount) = 13560 (answer), then you may as well give up on this kind of problem...
