A bill for Rs. 6000 is drawn on July 14 at 5 months . It is discounted on 5th October at 10%. Find the banker's discount, true discount, banker's gain and the money that the holder of the bill receives.

Answer: c) Rs. 120, Rs. 117.64, Rs. 2.36, Rs. 5880

Solution: Face value of the bill = Rs. 6000.
Date on which the bill was drawn = July 14 at 5 months.
Nominally due date = December 14. Legally due date = December 17.
Date on which the bill was discounted = October 5.

Money received by the holder of the bill = Rs. (6000 - 120) = Rs. 5880.
