1. Question 1. The H.c.f And L.c.m Of Two Numbers Are 11 And 385 Respectively. If One Number Lies Between 75 And 125 , Then That Number Is?

Answer :

Product of numbers = 11 x 385 = 4235

Let the numbers be 11a and 11b . Then , 11a x 11b = 4235  =>  ab = 35

Now, co-primes with product  35 are (1,35) and (5,7)

So, the numbers are ( 11 x 1, 11 x 35)  and (11 x 5, 11 x 7)

Since one number lies 75 and 125, the suitable pair is  (55,77)

Hence , required number = 77.

13. Question 9. The Difference Of Two Numbers Is 14. Their Lcm And Hcf Are 441 And 7. Find The Two Numbers ?

Answer :

Since their HCFs are 7, numbers are divisible by 7 and are of the form 7x and 7y

Difference = 14

=> 7x – 7y = 14

=> x – y = 2

product of numbers = product of their hcf and lcm

=> 7x * 7y = 441 * 7

=> x * y = 63

Now, we have

x * y = 63 , x – y = 2

=> x = 9 , y = 7

The numbers are 7x and 7y

=> 63 and 49.

Answer :

In this type of questions we need to get the relative speed between them,

The relative speed of the boys = 5.5kmph – 5kmph

= 0.5 kmph

Distance between them is 8.5 km

Time = Distance/Speed

Time= 8.5km / 0.5 kmph = 17 hrs.

21. Question 14. A Man Reaches His Office 20 Min Late, If He Walks From His Home At 3 Km Per Hour And Reaches 30 Min Early If He Walks 4 Km Per Hour. How Far Is His Office From His House?

Answer :

Let distance = x km.

Time taken at 3 kmph : dist/speed = x/3 = 20 min late.

time taken at 4 kmph : x/4 = 30 min earlier

difference between time taken : 30-(-20) = 50 mins = 50/60 hours.

x/3- x/4 = 50/60

x/12 = 5/6

x = 10 km.

22. Question 15. An Employee May Claim Rs. 7.00 For Each Km When He Travels By Taxi And Rs. 6.00 For Each Km If He Drives His Own Car. If In One Week He Claimed Rs. 595 For Traveling 90 Km. How Many Kms Did He Travel By Taxi ?

Answer :

Let x and y be the respective km’s travelled by man via taxi and by his own car.

Given x + y = 90 => x = 90 – y

But according to the question,

7x + 6y = 595

7(90-y) + 6y = 595

=> 630 – 7y + 6y = 595

=> y = 630 – 595 = 35

=> x = 90 – 35 = 55

Therefore, the distance travelled by taxi is 55 kms.

24. Question 16. A Train Covers A Distance In 50 Minutes, If It Runs At A Speed Of 48kmph On An Average. Find The Speed At Which The Train Must Run To Reduce The Time Of Journey To 40 Minutes?

Answer :

We are having time and speed given,

so first we will calculate the distance.

Then we can get new speed for given time and distance.

Lets solve it.

Time = 50/60 hr = 5/6 hr

Speed = 48 mph

Distance = S*T = 48 * 5/6 = 40 km

New time will be 40 minutes so,

Time = 40/60 hr = 2/3 hr

Now we know,

Speed = Distance/Time

New speed = 40*3/2 kmph = 60kmph.

25. Question 17. A Man Whose Speed Is 4.5 Kmph In Still Water Rows To A Certain Upstream Point And Back To The Starting Point In A River Which Flows At 1.5 Kmph, Find His Average Speed For The Total Journey ?

= 2000 meter = 2 km

In 1 minute train is moving 2 km/minute.

Speed in hour = 2*60 = 120 km/hour.

30. Question 20. A Man Covers A Distance Of 1200 Km In 70 Days Resting 9 Hours A Day, If He Rests 10 Hours A Day And Walks With Speed 1½ Times Of The Previous In How Many Days Will He Cover 840 Km ?

Answer :

Distance d = 1200km

let S be the speed

he walks 15 hours a day(i.e 24 – 9)

so totally he walks for 70 x 15 = 1050hrs.

S = 1200/1050 => 120/105 = 24/21 => 8/7kmph

given 1 1/2 of previous speed

so 3/2 * 8/7= 24/14 = 12/7

New speed = 12/7kmph

Now he rests 10 hrs a day that means he walks 14 hrs a day.

time = 840 x 7 /12 => 490 hrs

=> 490/14 = 35 days

So he will take 35 days to cover 840 km.

32. Question 21. A Man Covered A Certain Distance At Some Speed. Had He Moved 3 Kmph Faster, He Would Have Taken 40 Minutes Less. If He Had Moved 2 Kmph Slower, He Would Have Taken 40 Minutes More. The Distance (in Km) Is?

Answer :

Let distance = x km and usual rate = y kmph.

Then, x/y – x/(y+3) = 40/60 –> 2y (y+3) = 9x —– (i)

Also, x/(y-2) – x/y = 40/60 –> y(y-2) = 3x ——– (ii)

On dividing (i) by (ii), we get:

x = 40 km.

33. Question 22. A Person Takes 20 Minutes More To Cover A Certain Distance By Decreasing His Speed By 20%. What Is The Time Taken To Cover The Distance At His Original Speed ?

Answer :

Let the distance and original speed be ‘d’ km and ‘k’ kmph respectively.

d/0.8k – d/k = 20/60 => 5d/4k – d/k = 1/3

=> (5d – 4d)/4k = 1/3 => d = 4/3 k

Time taken to cover the distance at original speed

= d/k = 4/3 hours = 1 hour 20 minutes.

34. Question 23. A And B Runs Around A Circular Track. A Beats B By One Round Or 10 Minutes. In This Race, They Had Completed 4 Rounds. If The Race Was Only Of One Round, Find The A’s Time Over The Course?

Answer :

B runs around the track in 10 min.

i.e ,Speed of B = 10 min per round

Therefore,  A beats B by 1 round

Time taken  by A to complete 4 rounds

= Time taken by B to complete 3 rounds

= 30 min

Therefore, A’s speed = 30/4 min per round = 7.5 min per round

Hence, if the race is only of one round A’s time over the course = 7 min 30 sec.

Answer :

By car 240 km at 60 kmph

Time taken = 240/60 = 4 hr.

By train 240 km at 60 kmph

Time taken = 400/100 = 4 hr.

By bus 240 km at 60 kmph

Time taken = 200/50 = 4 hr.

So total time = 4 + 4 + 4 = 12 hr.

and total speed = 240+400+200 = 840 km

Average speed of the whole journey = 840/12 = 70 kmph.

39. Question 26. Ramu Rides His Bike At An Average Speed Of 45 Km/hr And Reaches His Desitination In Four Hours. Somu Covers The Same Distance In Six Hours. If Ramu Covered His Journey At An Average Speed Which Was 9 Km/hr Less And Somu Covered His Journey At An Average Speed Which Was 10 Km/hr More, Then The Difference In Their Times Taken To Reach The Destination Would Be (in Minutes)?

Answer :

Distance travelled by Ramu = 45 x 4 = 180 km

Somu travelled the same distance in 6 hours.

His speed = 180/6 = 30 km/hr

Hence in the conditional case, Ramu’s speed = 45 – 9 = 36 km/hr and Somu’s speed = 30 + 10 = 40km/hr.

Therefore travel time of Ramu and Somu would be 5 hours and 4.5 hours respectively.

Hence difference in the time taken = 0.5 hours = 30 minutes.

(107/100)^n = 34347/30000 = 11449/10000 = (107/100)^2

n = 2years.

65. Question 45. The Compound Interest On A Sum Of Money For 2 Years Is Rs.832 And The Simple Interest On The Same Sum For The Same Period Is Rs.800 .the Difference Between The Compound Interest And Simple Interest For 3 Years?

Answer :

difference in C.I and S.I in 2years =Rs.32

S.I for 1year =Rs.400

S.I for Rs.400 for one year =Rs.32

rate=[100*32)/(400*1)%=8%

difference between in C.I and S.I for 3rd year

=S.I on Rs.832= Rs.(832*8*1)/100=Rs.66.56

66. Question 46. On A Sum Of Money, The Simple Interest For 2 Years Is Rs. 660,while The Compound Interest Is Rs.696.30,the Rate Of Interest Being The Same In Both The Cases. The Rate Of Interest Is?

Answer :

Difference in C.I and S.I for 2 years

= Rs(696.30-660)

=Rs. 36.30.

S.I for one years = Rs330.

S.I on Rs.330 for 1 year =Rs. 36.30

Rate

= (100×36.30/330×1)%

= 11%.

67. Question 47. Find The Compound Interest On Rs. 16,000 At 20% Per Annum For 9 Months, Compounded Quarterly?

Answer :

Principal = Rs. 16000; Time = 9 months =3 quarters;

Rate = 20% per annum = 5% per quarter.

Amount = Rs. [16000 x (1+(5/100))3] = Rs. 18522.

CJ. = Rs. (18522 – 16000) = Rs. 2522.

68. Question 48. The Compound Interest On A Certain Sum For 2 Years At 10% Per Annum Is Rs. 525. The Simple Interest On The Same Sum For Double The Time At Half The Rate Percent Per Annum Is?

Answer :

Let the sum be Rs. P.

Then,[p(1+10/100)2-p]=525

Sum =Rs.2500

S.I.= Rs.(2500*5*4)/100

= Rs. 500.

69. Question 49. Find Compound Interest On Rs. 7500 At 4% Per Annum For 2 Years, Compounded Annually?

Answer :

Amount = Rs [7500*(1+(4/100)2] = Rs (7500 * (26/25) * (26/25) ) = Rs. 8112.

therefore, C.I. = Rs. (8112 – 7500) = Rs. 612.

70. Question 50. The Difference Between Simple And Compound Interest Compounded Annually On A Certain Sum Of Money For 2 Years At 4% Per Annum Is Re.1. The Sum Is?

Answer :

sum=Rs.x

C.I=[x(1+4/100)^2-x]=(676/625x-x)=51/625

S.I=(x*4*2)/100=2x/25

x=625.

71. Question 51. What Is The Difference Between The Compound Interests On Rs. 5000 For 1 1/2 Years At 4% Per Annum Compounded Yearly And Half-yearly?

Answer :

C.I. when interest

compounded yearly=rs.[5000*(1+4/100)(1+1/2*4/100)]

= Rs. 5304.

C.I. when interest is

compounded half-yearly=rs.5000(1+2/100)^3

= Rs. 5306.04

Difference = Rs. (5306.04 – 5304) = Rs. 2.04.

72. Question 52. A Sum Of Money Invested At Compound Interest Amounts To Rs. 800 In 3 Years And To Rs. 840 In 4 Years. The Rate Of Interest Per Annum Is?

Answer :

S.I. on Rs.800 for 1 year

=Rs[840 – 800]

= Rs.40

Rate

=(100×40/800×1)%

= 5%.
