Simple Interest = P × R × T ÷ 100

So S.I in first yr. ⇒ P x R x T / 100

⇒ 1000 x 1 x 8 ÷ 100

⇒ 80

In second Yr. ⇒ 1000 x 2 x 8 ÷ 100

⇒ 160

Similarly in third Yr. ⇒ 240

So , we get the A.P. like this i.e. 80, 160, 240

Therefor a= 80 , d= 80.

we have to find out the interest at the end of 30 yr.

⇒ a = a + ( n-1 ) d

⇒ 80 + ( 30 – 1 ) 80

⇒ 80 + 29 × 80

⇒ 2400

There fore , the Interest at the end of 30 yrs is 2400
