If a sum of money amounts to Rs 12900 and Rs 14250 at the end of 4th and 5th year respectively at a certain rate of S.I , then the rate of interest is: 4 yrs ----- 12900 5 yrs ----- 14250 → 1 yrs ------ 1350. → 1350 * 4 = 5400. 12900 - 5400 = 7500 R = (1350/7500) * 100 = 18% I didn't understand why 1350 is multiplied with 4? why 5400 is subtracted from 12900?

Since we want to know the initial amount so that we can work out the interest rate, we need to subtract the interest for 4 years (5400) from the 'after 4 years' value of 12900.
