44. (1) Principal ( =₹ 10000 ), Rate of interest ( =8 % ) We know that, at the compound interest of half yearly, [ begin{array}{ll} & r=frac{8}{2}=4 % text { and } & t=1 times 2=2 mathrm{yr} end{array} ] Amount will be after one year [ begin{array}{l} =10000left(1+frac{4}{100}right)^{2} =10000 times frac{26}{25} times frac{26}{25} =₹ 10816 end{array} ] So, equivalent simple rate of interest [ =frac{(10816-10000) times 100}{10000 times 1}=frac{816 times 100}{10000} ] [ =8.16 % ]
