    D)  81000

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    (b): The value of the machine after depreciation of 10% per year for 3 years = \[Rs.\,100000\times \frac{90}{100}\times \frac{90}{100}\times \frac{90}{100}=72900/-\] Tip: \[9\times 9\times 9\]may be remembered as 729 It may also be remembered as, \[{{3}^{2}}\times {{3}^{2}}\times {{3}^{2}}={{3}^{6}}\]which is 729 (by doing so you are also are also revising your concepts learnt in previous chapter).
