Let the amount be P
As we know, A = P(1 + R/100)^t
initially, 7000 = P(1+R/100)^4________(1)
The key point to note here is, after 4 years, Rs 7000 will be the principal and the  amount after further 4 years will be Rs 10000
10000 = 7000(1 +R/100)^4
⇒(1 +R/100)^4 = 10/7 
putting this value in equation (1),
7000 = P×10/7
P = Rs 4900
By applying small logic you can make easier your problems.
