To calculate the amount after 2 years, we need to use the formula for simple interest:

Simple Interest = Principal * Rate * Time

In this case, the principal (P) is Ksh.45000, the rate (R) is 12% (or 0.12 as a decimal), and the time (T) is 2 years.

So, the simple interest earned after 2 years is:

Simple Interest = 45000 * 0.12 * 2 = Ksh.10,800

To find the total amount after 2 years, we add the simple interest to the principal:

Total Amount = Principal + Simple Interest = 45000 + 10800 = Ksh.55,800

Therefore, the amount after 2 years is Ksh.55,800.

Simple Interest = Principal * Rate * Time

In this case, the principal (P) is Ksh.45000, the rate (R) is 12% (or 0.12 as a decimal), and the time (T) is 2 years.

So, the simple interest earned after 2 years is:

Simple Interest = 45000 * 0.12 * 2 = Ksh.10,800

To find the total amount after 2 years, we add the simple interest to the principal:

Total Amount = Principal + Simple Interest = 45000 + 10800 = Ksh.55,800

Therefore, the amount after 2 years is Ksh.55,800.
