  1. Question 1. A Man, His Wife And Daughter Worked In A Graden. The Man Worked For 3 Days, His Wife For 2 Days And Daughter For 4 Days. The Ratio Of Daily Wages For Man To Women Is 5 : 4 And The Ratio For Man To Daughter Is 5 : 3. If Their Total Earnings Is Mounted To Rs. 105, Then Find The Daily Wage Of The Daughter?

    Answer :

    Assume that the daily wages of man, women and daughter are Rs 5x, Rs. 4x, Rs 3x respectively.

    Multiply (no. of days) with (assumed daily wage) of each person to calculate the value of x. 

    [3 x (5x)] + [2 x (4x)] + [4 x (3x)] = 105

    [15x + 8x + 12x] = 105

    35x = 105

    x = 3

    Hence, man’s daily wage = 5x = 5 x 3 = Rs. 15 

    Wife’s daily wage = 4x = 4 x 3 = Rs. 12

    Daughter’s daily wage = 3x = 3 x 3 = Rs. 9.

  2. Question 2. Amit, Raju And Ram Agree To Pay Their Total Electricity Bill In The Proportion 3 : 4 : 5. Amit Pays First Day’s Bill Of Rs. 50, Raju Pays Second Day’s Bill Of Rs. 55 And Ram Pays Third Day’s Bill Of Rs. 75. How Much Amount Should Amit Pay To Settle The Accounts?

    Answer :

    Toatal bill paid by Amit, Raju and Ram = ( 50 + 55 +75 ) = Rs. 180

    Let amount paid by Amit, Raju and Ram be Rs. 3x, 4x and 5x respectively.

    Therefore, (3x + 4x + 5x ) = 180

    12x = 180 

    x = 15 

    Therefore, amount paid by,

    Amit = Rs. 45

    Raju = Rs. 60

    Ram = Rs. 75

    But actually as given in the question, Amit pays Rs. 50, Raju pays Rs. 55 and Ram pays Rs. 80. Hence, Amit pays Rs. 5 less than the actual amount to be paid. Hence he needs to pay Rs. 5 to Raju settle the amount.

  4. Question 3. Salaries Of Ram And Sham Are In The Ratio Of 4 : 5. If The Salary Of Each Is Increased By Rs. 5000, Then The New Ratio Becomes 50 : 60. What Is Sham’s Present Salary?

    Answer :

    Assume original salaries of Ram and Sham as 4x and 5x respectively.

    Therefore,

    (4x + 5000)/= 50

    (5x + 5000) 60

    60 (4x + 5000) = 50 (5x + 5000)

    10 x = 50,000 

    5x = 25, 000

    Sham’s present salary = 5x + 5000 = 25,000 + 5000

    Sham’s present salary = Rs. 30,000.

  6. Question 5. Find The Lcm Of Following Three Fractions:36/,48/,72/?

    Answer :

    Numerators = 36, 48 and 72.

    72 is largest number among them. 72 is not divisible by 36 or 48

    Start with table of 72.

    72 x 2 = 144 = divisible by 72, 36 and 48

    ? LCM of numerators = 144

    Denominators = 225, 150 and 65

    We can see that they can be divided by 5.

    On dividing by 5 we get 45, 30 and 13

    We cannot divide further.

    So, HCF = GCD = 5

    LCM of fraction =144/5.

  11. Question 8. A Wall Is 4.5 Meters Long And 3.5 Meters High. Find The Number Of Maximum Sized Wallpaper Squares, If The Wall Has To Be Covered With Only The Square Wall Paper Pieces Of Same Size?

    Answer :

    Wall can be covered only by using square sized wallpaper pieces.

    Different sized squares are not allowed.

    Length = 4.5 m = 450 cm; 

    Height = 3.5 m = 350 cm

    Maximum square size possible means HCF of 350 and 450

    We can see that 350 and 450 can be divided by 50.

    On dividing by 50, we get 7 and 9.

    Since we cannot divide further,

                 HCF = 50 = size of side of square

    Number of squares =Wall area/=450 x 350/= 63

               Square area=50 x 50.

  12. Question 9. Find The Largest Number Of 4-digits Divisible By 12, 15 And 18?

    Answer :

    Required largest number must be divisible by the L.C.M. of 12, 15 and 18 

    L.C.M. of 12, 15 and 18

    12 = 2 × 2 × 3

    15 =5 × 3

    18 = 2 × 3 × 3 

    L.C.M. = 180 

    Now divide 9999 by 180, we get remainder as 99 

    The required largest number = (9999 – 99) =9900 

    Number 9900 is exactly divisible by 180.
