Simple Interest
A sum of Rs. 2600 is lent out in two parts in such a way that the interest on one part at 10% for 5 years is equal to that on another at 9% for 6 years. The sum lent out at 10% is:
A.  1150 
B.  1250 
C.  1350 
D.  1450 
E.  None of these 

Let the sum lent at 10% be Rs. a and that lent at 9% be Rs. (2600  a). Then,
a x 10 x 5
=
(2600  a) x 9 x 6
100
100
=>
50a = (2600 x 54)  54a
a =
2600 x
54
= 1350.

Sum lent at 10% = Rs. 1350
