Question No: 25 ( Marks: 3 )
Find the single discount rate that is equivalent to the series18%, 12%, 9%.
Solution:

Let list price = 100

Series trade discount: Netprice = List price(1-d1)(1-d2)..(1-dn)
= 100 (1 - .18)(1 - .12)(1 - .09)
= 100(.82)(.88)(.91)
=100(.657)
=65.7
Single discount rate = 100  65.7
= 34.3%

Question No: 26 ( Marks: 5 )
Compute the amount of compound interest for Rs 3500 at 6% per annum for 2 years.
Solution:

S = P(1+R/100)^n
S= Money accrued after n years also called compound amount
P= Principle amount
R= Rate of interest
n= number of periods

S= 3500 (1 + 6/100)^2
=3500 (1 + .06)^2
=3500(1.06)^2
= 3500(1.1236)
S=3933

Compound interest = S  P
= 3933  3500
= 433

Question No: 27 ( Marks: 10 )
It is advised by the exam department of an institute to the assistant to develop a structure of marks obtained by three students in three different subjects for very quick view & analysis with the following instructions to be followed strictly as;
a) marks obtained by EACH student in EVERY subject
b) marks in EACH subject be obtained by EVERY student.

Also describe & justify the optimality of the structure. If such model is possible then suggest its further extension for numerous numbers of students.

Solution: The optimal method to solve this problem is by using matrices

Let the student names be:
1. Ahmed
2. Shahzad
3. Amjad
Let the subjects be:
1. Math
2. Chemistry
3. Physics

Math Chemistry Physics
Ahmed 10 20 30
Shahzad 15 25 35
Amjad 20 25 45

Now lets convert the above table into a matrix:

10 20 30
A = 15 25 35
20 25 45

BENEFITS OF MATRICES: The below benefits can help in further extension
1. Can handle large amount of data:
So w.r.t to the above question you can increase the no. of students & subjects as per your requirement and a
2. Analysis of data:
By using different matrix functions you can easily find out the respective averages and the grades of students.
3. Simple & Easy:
The above mentioned matix structure is simple and easy to understand and the data can be easily converted from table to matrix
4. Easy to evaluate performance:
Its easy to find each students performance in a specific subject
5. Easy extension:
As matrices can handle large amounts of data so you just need to enter the data rest is done by matrices functions.
