    If it is not mentioned in the problem , then it has to be assumed compound interest ?

  2. I suppose unless it has been mentioned whether it the interest is compounded annually or not, it would be difficult to proceed. Though a way out is you will have to try out both the scenarios but I doubt that would be the case.
