Answer: Simple Interest earned during 10 years = 25000 * 7% * 10

= (250*7*10)

= 17500

Total Value of investment = 17500 + 25000 = 42500

Explanation:

(1) For finding the total value of the investment in 10 years, we have to first compute the simple interest earned for 10 years i. e. the investment time period. The formula of calculating Simple Interest is as follows-

Value Invested * Interest Rate * Time period of investment

Applying the simple interest formula we will get the value of simple interest as shown in the answer above.

(2) Lastly, we have to add Value invested in the beginning and the Simple Interest earned during the 10 years for finding the total value of the investment in 10 years i. e.

Total Value of investment = Value invested in the beginning + Simple Interest Earned during the investment period (10 years in this case)
