## Text Solution

What is Known?

Principal, interest and number of years.

What is Unknown?

Rate of interest.

Reasoning:

Rate of Interest can be calculated using the formula

Simple Interest

\begin{align} & =\frac{\left[ \begin{align} & \text{Principal} \times \text{Rate of interest} \\ & \times \text{Time (in years)} \\ \end{align} \right]}{100} \\ \end{align}

Steps:

Let us assume that rate of interest to be $$\rm{R.}$$

So, Simple Interest

\begin{align}{\rm{ = }}\,\frac{{{\rm{Principal}}\,{\rm{ \times Rate}}\,{\rm{ \times }}\,{\rm{Time}}}}{{{\rm{100}}}}\end{align}

\begin{align}{\rm{I}}{\rm{.E}\,}{\rm{.\,280}}\, &=\frac{{{\rm{56000}} \times {\rm{R}}\, \times {\rm{2}}}}{{{\rm{100}}}}\\{\rm{R}} &= \frac{{280 \times 100}}{{56000 \times 2}}\\ &= 0.25\%\end{align}

So, the rate of interest is $$0.25\%$$
