  19. Question 13. It Takes 6 Technicians 10 Hours To Build And Program A New Server From Direct Computer, With Each Working At The Same Rate. If Six Technicians Start To Build The Server At 11:00 Am, And One Technician Per Hour Is Added Beginning At 5:00 Pm, At What Time Will The Server Be Complete?

    Answer :

    Total time required to complete job is 6 * 10 = 60 hours Work completed between 11am to 5pm by 6 technician = (6 * 6) = 36 hours

    So remaining work = (60 – 36) = 24 hours Remaining work between 5pm to 6pm = 24 -7 = 17 hours. 

    Similarly work completed between 6pm to 7 pm = 17 – 8 = 9 hours,

    which is completed in next one hour i.e. Job is complete at 8.00PM.

    Answer :

    We know that

    Selling price = cost price + profit

    Cost Price = 12.60 

    Profit = 10% of CP = (10 / 100) * 12.60 = 126 /100 Profit = 1.26

    Selling Price = CP + Profit = 12.60 + 1.26 Selling Price = 13.86.

  21. Question 15. A Retailer Buys A Radio For Rs.225. His Overhead Expenses Are Rs.15 And He Sells The Radio For Rs.300. What Is The Profit Percent Of The Retailer?

    Answer :

    Selling price = cost price + profit 

    Cost price = 225 + 15 = 240 

    i.e. 240 + X * 240 * 1/100 = 300

    240 + 24X/ 10 = 300 

    (taking LCM) 2400 + 24X = 3000 

    24 X = 3000 – 2400 

    24X = 600

    X = 600/ 24

    X = 25.

  24. Question 17. A Man Is Standing On A Railway Bridge Which Is 180m Long. He Finds That A Train Crosses The Bridge In 20seconds And Him In 8 Seconds. Find The Length Of The Train And Its Speed?

    Answer :

    Let the length of the train be x meters Then,

    the train covers x meters in 8 seconds and (x + 180) meters in 20 seconds.

    Therefore x/8 = (x+180)/20

    <=> 20x = 8(x+180)

    <=> x = 120 

    Therefore Length of the train = 120m 

    Speed of the train = 120/8 m/sec = 15 m/sec =15 * 18/5 kmph = 54kmph.

  28. Question 19. Find Out The Simple Interest Paid For A Sum Of Rs. 4000 At The Rate Of 8% Per Annum For 3 Months?

    Answer :

    The simple interest formula is Interest = Principal × Rate × Time

    I = P×R×T Where: ‘Interest’ is the total amount of interest paid, ‘Principal’ is the amount lent or borrowed, ‘Rate’ is the percentage of the principal charged as interest each year.

    The rate is expressed as a decimal fraction, so percentages must be divided by 100.

    ‘Time’ is the time in years of the loan.

    S.I = P×R×T S.I. = Rs. 4000 * 8% * 3 months

    S.I. = 4000* 8 /100 * 3/12 S.I. = 80.

  29. Question 20. There Are 6 Red Shoes & 4 Green Shoes. If Two Of Red Shoes Are Drawn Randomly What Is The Probability Of Getting Red Shoes?

    Answer :

    Total number of shoes=6 + 4=10;

    let S be the sample space. 

    Then, n(s) = Number of ways of drawing 2 shoes out of 10 =10C2 =(10 x 9)/(2 x 1) =45

    Let E = Event of drawing 2 shoes which are red. 

    Therefore n(E) = Number of ways of drawing 2 red shoes out of 6 shoes.= 6C2 =(6 x 5)/(2 x 1) =15 P(E) = n(E)/n(S) = 1/3.

    here we divide by 4 because rope is tied at the corner of the plot and only 1/4 part,

    the goat can graze Where length of rope r = 7 m.

    A = πr2 / 4 A = 1/4(area of circle)

    A = ¼ [(22/7)*7*7] A = 38.5
