43. Question 28. Two Varieties Of Wheat – A And B Costing Rs. 9 Per Kg And Rs. 15 Per Kg Were Mixed In The Ratio 3 : 7. If 5 Kg Of The Mixture Is Sold At 25% Profit, Find The Profit Made?

Let the quantities of A and B mixed be 3x kg and 7x kg.

Cost of 3x kg of A = 9(3x) = Rs. 27x

Cost of 7x kg of B = 15(7x) = Rs. 105x

Cost of 10x kg of the mixture = 27x + 105x = Rs. 132x

Cost of 5 kg of the mixture = 132x/10x (5) = Rs. 66

Profit made in selling 5 kg of the mixture = 25/100 (cost of 5 kg of the mixture) = 25/100 * 66 = Rs. 16.50.

x = 1.5.

68. Question 48. A Man Rows His Boat 85 Km Downstream And 45 Km Upstream, Taking 2 1/2 Hours Each Time. Find The Speed Of The Stream?

Speed downstream = d/t = 85/(2 1/2) = 34 kmph

Speed upstream = d/t = 45/(2 1/2) = 18 kmph

The speed of the stream = (34 – 18)/2 = 8 kmph.

69. Question 49. The Time Taken By A Man To Row His Boat Upstream Is Twice The Time Taken By Him To Row The Same Distance Downstream. If The Speed Of The Boat In Still Water Is 42 Kmph, Find The Speed Of The Stream?

The ratio of the times taken is 2:1.

Speed of the stream = 42/3 = 14 kmph.

70. Question 50. A Man Can Row At 5 Km/hr In Still Water, If The River Is Running At 1 Km/hr It Takes Him 75 Minutes To Row To A Place And Back. How Far Is The Place?

Speed downstream = (5+1)km/hr = 6 km/hr

Speed upstream = (5-1)km/hr = 4 km/hr

Let the required distance be x km.

Then x/6 + x/4 = 75/60 = 5/4 => (2x + 3x) =15 => x =3.

Required distance = 3 km.

325/32.5 = 10.

77. Question 57. The Sum Of Five Consecutive Odd Numbers Of Set P Is 435. What Is The Sum Of Five Consecutive Numbers Of Another Set Q. Whose Largest Number Is 45 More Than The Largest Number Of Set P?

Let the five consecutive odd numbers of set p be 2n – 3, 2n – 1, 2n + 1, 2n + 3, 2n + 5.

Sum of these five numbers

= 2n – 3 + 2n – 1 + 2n + 1 + 2n + 3 + 2n + 5

= 10n + 5 = 435 => n = 43

Largest number of set p = 2(43) + 5 = 91

The largest number of set q = 91 + 45 = 136

=> The five numbers of set q are 132, 133, 134, 135, 136.

Sum of above numbers = 132 + 133 + 134 + 135 + 136 = 670.

78. Question 58. The Radius Of A Cylindrical Vessel Is 7cm And Height Is 3cm. Find The Whole Surface Of The Cylinder?

r = 7  h = 3

2πr(h + r) = 2 * 22/7 * 7(10) = 440.

79. Question 59. A Brick Measures 20 Cm * 10 Cm * 7.5 Cm How Many Bricks Will Be Required For A Wall 25 M * 2 M * 0.75 M?

25 * 2 * 0.75 = 20/100 * 10/100 * 7.5/100 * x

25 =  1/100 * x => x = 25000.

80. Question 60. If The Length, Breadth And The Height Of A Cuboid Are In The Ratio 6: 5: 4 And If The Total Surface Area Is 33300 Cm2, Then Length Breadth And Height In Cms, Are Respectively?

Length = 6x

Height = 4x in cm

Therefore, 2(6x × 5x + 5x × 4x + 6x × 4x) = 33300

148×2 = 33300

=> x2 = 33300/148 = 225

=> x = 15.

Therefore, Length = 90cm,

Height = 60cm

90, 75 , 60 cm.

81. Question 61. The Sum Of Three Consecutive Integers Is 102. Find The Lowest Of The Three?

Three consecutive numbers can be taken as (P – 1), P, (P + 1).

So, (P – 1) + P + (P + 1) = 102

3P = 102 => P = 34.

The lowest of the three = (P – 1) = 34 – 1 = 33.

82. Question 62. The Sum Of The Two Digits Of A Number Is 10. If The Number Is Subtracted From The Number Obtained By Reversing Its Digits, The Result Is 54. Find The Number?

Any two digit number can be written as (10P + Q), where P is the digit in the tens place and Q is the digit in the units place.

P + Q = 10 —– (1)

(10Q + P) – (10P + Q) = 54

9(Q – P) = 54

(Q – P) = 6 —– (2)

Solve (1) and (2) P = 2 and Q = 8

The required number is = 28

83. Question 63. The Sum Of The Present Ages Of Two Persons A And B Is 60. If The Age Of A Is Twice That Of B, Find The Sum Of Their Ages 5 Years Hence?

A + B = 60, A = 2B

2B + B = 60 => B = 20 then A = 40.

5 years, their ages will be 45 and 25.

Sum of their ages = 45 + 25 = 70.

84. Question 64. The Tax On A Commodity Is Diminished By 20% But Its Consumption Is Increased By 10%. Find The Decrease Percent In The Revenue Derived From It?

100 * 100 = 10000

80 * 110 = 8800

10000——- 1200

100 ——- ? = 12%.

85. Question 65. There Were Two Candidates In An Election. Winner Candidate Received 62% Of Votes And Won The Election By 288 Votes. Find The Number Of Votes Casted To The Winning Candidate?

W = 62%    L = 38%

62% – 38% = 24%

24% ——– 288

62% ——– ? => 744.

86. Question 66. Find The 37.5% Of 976 =

37.5 % of 976

= 37.5/100 * 976 = 375/1000 * 976 = 3/8 * 976

= 3 * 122 = 366.

87. Question 67. 64 Is What Percent Of 80?

Let x percent of 80 be 64.

80 * x/100 = 64 => x = (64 * 100)/80 => x = 80.

80% of 80 is 64.

88. Question 68. 3/20 Is What Percent Of 12/25?

Let the required percentage be x%.

3/20 = x% of 12/25 => 3/20 = x/100 * 12/25

=> 12x = (300 * 25)/20 => x = (25 * 25)/20

=> x = 31.25%.

89. Question 69. Find The Roots Of The Quadratic Equation: 2x2 + 3x – 9 = 0?

2x2 + 6x – 3x – 9 = 0

2x(x + 3) – 3(x + 3) = 0

(x + 3)(2x – 3) = 0

=> x = -3 or x = 3/2.

90. Question 70. If The Sides Of A Triangle Are 26 Cm, 24 Cm And 10 Cm, What Is Its Area?

The triangle with sides 26 cm, 24 cm and 10 cm is right angled, where the hypotenuse is 26 cm.

Area of the triangle = 1/2 * 24 * 10 = 120 cm2.

91. Question 71. A Wire In The Form Of A Circle Of Radius 3.5 M Is Bent In The Form Of A Rectangule, Whose Length And Breadth Are In The Ratio Of 6 : 5. What Is The Area Of The Rectangle?

The circumference of the circle is equal to the permeter of the rectangle.

Let l = 6x and b = 5x 2(6x + 5x) = 2 * 22/7 * 3.5

=>  x = 1

Therefore l = 6 cm and b = 5 cm Area of the rectangle = 6 * 5 = 30 cm2.

92. Question 72. The Dimensions Of A Room Are 25 Feet * 15 Feet * 12 Feet. What Is The Cost Of White Washing The Four Walls Of The Room At Rs. 5 Per Square Feet If There Is One Door Of Dimensions 6 Feet * 3 Feet And Three Windows Of Dimensions 4 Feet * 3 Feet Each?

Area of the four walls = 2h(l + b)

Since there are doors and windows, area of the walls = 2 * 12 (15 + 25) – (6 * 3) – 3(4 * 3) = 906 sq.ft.

Total cost = 906 * 5 = Rs. 4530.

93. Question 73. If Two Dice Are Thrown Together, The Probability Of Getting An Even Number On One Die And An Odd Number On The Other Is -.

The number of exhaustive outcomes is 36.

Let E be the event of getting an even number on one die and an odd number on the other.

let the event of getting either both even or both odd then  = 18/36 = 1/2

P(E) = 1 – 1/2 = 1/2.
