# A scooter was bought at ₹ 42,000. Its value depreciated at the rate of 8% per annum. Find its value after one year

**Solution:**

Original value of the scooter = ₹ 42,000

Rate of depreciation = 8%

The value of the scooter after 1 year = 42000 - [42000 × (8/100)]

= 42000 - [42000 × (2/25)]

= 42000 - (1680 × 2)

= 42000 - 3360

= 38640

Thus, the value of the scooter after 1 year is ₹ 38640.
