Consider the situation as the principal being the initial investment= 24000
Final amt= P+CI= 27783
Rate of CI= 5% compounded half yearly(as the tenure is of 6 months)

Calculate the time.(considering 6 months as 1 tenure but the final answer being in years)
I think I’ve made the question clear, so can you ahead and solve for yourself with the given directions.
