The true discount on a bill due 9 months hence at 16% per annum is Rs. 189. The amount of the bill is:
Rs. 1386
Rs. 1764
Rs. 1575
Rs. 2268
Explanation:

Let P.W. be Rs. x.

Then, S.I. on Rs. x at 16% for 9 months = Rs. 189.

 x x 16 x 9 x 1 = 189 or x = 1575. 12 100

P.W. = Rs. 1575.

Sum due = P.W. + T.D. = Rs. (1575 + 189) = Rs. 1764.

TD = AMT * R * T/100+(R * T)
TD = 189, R=16,T=3/4
189 = Amt * 3/4 * 16/100+(16 * 3/4).
Amt = 1764.

" at 16% per annum is Rs. 189"- So amount Rs. 189 is for 12 months as it is given per annum, isn't it?

Then how come "S. I. On Rs. X at 16% for 9 months = Rs. 189"- is this Rs. 189 for 9 months?

Kindly help!
