## Text Solution

What is Known?

If Meena gives an interest of $$\rm Rs\, 45$$ for one year at $$9\%$$ rate p.a.

What is Unknown?

What is the sum she has borrowed?

Reasoning:

This question can be solved by using the formula of simple interest

So Simple Interest

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

Steps:

Let us assume principal to be $$P$$

So Simple Interest

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

\begin{align}{\rm{I}}{\rm{.E}}{\rm{.}}{\rm{45}}&= \frac{{{\rm{P}} \times {\rm{9}} \times {\rm{1}}}}{{{\rm{100}}}}\\{\rm{P}} &=\frac{{{\rm{45}}{\rm{ \times }}{\rm{1}}{\rm{00}}}}{{{\rm{9}}{\rm{ \times }}{\rm{1}}}}\\&= 500\end{align}

So, Meena borrowed $$\rm Rs\, 500$$
