    Step 1 > What is the formula for simple interest?
    Step 2 > Note that the principal amount is same in both cases.
    Step 3 > We are given 2 different N's here.
    Step 4 > R is going to remain same (This has to be assumed! No other choice)
    Step 5 > Write the equations out and algebraically manipulate them.
