  19. Question 13. If The Mean Of 9, 8, 10, X, 12 Is 15, Find The Value Of X.

    Answer :

    Mean of the given numbers = (9 + 8 + 10 + x + 12)/5 = (39 + x)/5

    According to the problem, mean = 15 (given).

    Therefore, (39 + x)/5 = 15

    ⇒ 39 + x = 15 × 5

    ⇒ 39 + x = 75

    ⇒ 39 – 39 + x = 75 – 39

    ⇒ x = 36

    Hence, x = 36.

  20. Question 14. The Mean Of 40 Numbers Was Found To Be 38. Later On, It Was Detected That A Number 56 Was Misread As 36. Find The Correct Mean Of Given Numbers.

    Answer :

    Calculated mean of 40 numbers = 38. 

    Therefore, calculated sum of these numbers = (38 × 40) = 1520.

    Correct sum of these numbers

    = [1520 – (wrong item) + (correct item)]

    = (1520 – 36 + 56)

    = 1540.

    Therefore, the correct mean = 1540/40 = 38.5.

  21. Question 15. The Mean Of The Heights Of 6 Boys Is 152 Cm. If The Individual Heights Of Five Of Them Are 151 Cm, 153 Cm, 155 Cm, 149 Cm And 154 Cm, Find The Height Of The Sixth Boy.

    Answer :

    Mean height of 6 boys = 152 cm.

    Sum of the heights of 6 boys = (152 × 6) = 912 cm

    Sum of the heights of 5 boys = (151 + 153 + 155 + 149 + 154) cm = 762 cm.

    Height of the sixth boy 

    = (sum of the heights of 6 boys) – (sum of the heights of 5 boys)

    = (912 – 762) cm = 150 cm.

    Hence, the height of the sixth girl is 150 cm.

  28. Question 19. A Train Running At Speed Of 126 Kmph. What Will Be The Length Of Train If It Cross A Tree In 5 Sec.

    Answer :

    Formula Used: Distance = (Speed * Time)

    convert the train speed (Kmph) in to mps multiply by 5/18

    speed (mps) = 126 * 5/18 = 35 mps 

    length = ( 35 * 5 ) meter

    convert the train speed (Kmph) in to mps multiply by 5/18

    speed (mps) = 72 * 5/18 = 20mps

    Formula Used: Time = Distance/Speed

    Time = (500 / 20 ) sec

    = 25 sec

  31. Question 21. Anirudh, Harish And Sahil Invested A Total Of Rs.1,35,000 In The Ratio 5:6:4 Anirudh Invested Has Capital For 8 Months. Harish Invested For 6 Months And Sahil Invested For 4 Months. If They Earn A Profit Of Rs.75,900,then What Is The Share Of Sahil In The Profit ?

    Answer :

    Anirudh invest for 8 months,haris invested for 6 and 

    sahil for 4 months in the ratio of 5:6:4

    so ratio = 5*8 : 6*6 : 4*4

    => 40:36:16

    => 10:9:4

    So sahil’s profit=(4/23)*75900 = 13200

  32. Question 22. A Train Overtakes Two Persons Who Are Walking In The Same Direction In Which The Train Is Going, At The Rate Of 2 Kmph And 4 Kmph And Passes Them Completely In 19 And 20 Seconds Respectively. The Length Of The Train Is:

    Answer :

    Convert the persons Speed in m/sec

    2 kmph = (2 x 5/18) m/sec = 5/9 m/sec.

    4 kmph = (4 x 5/18 m/sec = 10/9 m/sec.

    Let the length of the train be x meters and its speed by y m/sec.

    Relative speed in respect to both person (y – 5/9) and (y – 10/9)

    Formula Used: Time = Distance / speed 

    so x / (y – 5/9) = 19 —- (1)

    and x / (y – 10/9) = 20 —- (2)

    9x = 19 (9y – 5) —– (1)

    9x = 20 (9y – 10) ——(2)

    find the value of x and y 

    19 (9y – 5) = 20(9y – 10) 

    171 y – 95 = 180 y -200 => 9y = 105 => y = 105/9 = 35/3

    Now find the value fo x by above any equations 

    9x = 171 *35/3 – 95 = 57 *35 – 95

    9x = 1900 => x = 211.1 meter

  33. Question 23. Ajay, Vijay And Sanjay Rent A Pasture. Ajay Puts 10 Oxen For 7 Months, Vijay Puts 12 Oxen For 5 Months And Sanjay Puts 15 Oxen For 3 Months For Grazing. If The Rent Of The Pasture Is Rs. 175, How Much Must Sanjay Pay As His Share Of Rent ?

    Answer :

    Ajay : Vijay : Sanjay = 10 * 7 : 12 * 5 : 15 * 3

    = 70 : 60 : 45 = 14 : 12 : 9.

    So Sanjay’s rent = Rs. (175 * 9/35) = Rs. 45.

  35. Question 24. A Train Overtakes Two Persons Walking Along A Railway Track. The First One Walks At 4.5 Km/hr. The Other One Walks At 5.4 Km/hr. The Train Needs 8.4 And 8.5 Seconds Respectively To Overtake Them. If Both The Persons Are Walking In The Same Direction As The Train? So What Is The Speed Of The Train ?

    Answer :

    Convert the Speed in m/sec

    so 4.5 km/hr = ( 4.5 x 5/18 ) m/sec = 5/4 m/sec = 1.25 m/sec,

    and 5.4 km/hr = ( 5.4 x 5/18 ) m/sec = 3/2 m/sec = 1.5 m/sec.

    Here assume the speed of the train as x m/sec. 

    so relative will be (x-1.25) and (x – 1.5) 

    (x – 1.25) x 8.4 = (x – 1.5) x 8.5

    => 8.4x – 10.5 = 8.5x – 12.75

    => 0.1x = 2.25 

    => x = 22.5 m/s

    As options are given in km/hr so convert the speed mps to kmph

    So Speed of the train = ( 22.5 x 18/5 ) km/hr = 81 km/hr.

  37. Question 25. X And Y Started A Business Together. If X Invested Rs. 16,000 For 8 Months And Y Invested Some Amount In The Business For 4 Months. If Y Claims 2/7 Of The Total Profit Earned. How Much Money Was Invested By Y?

    Answer :

    Lets assume the total profit = Rs. T

    so Y part = 2*T/7 and

    X part = T – 2*T/7 = 5*T/7

    X, Y ratio

    => X : Y = 5*T/7 : 2*T/7 = 5 : 2

    Y invested Rs.P

    so (16000 * 8) / (P * 4) = 5/2

    => P = (16000 * 8 * 2) /(5 * 4)

    => P = Rs. 12800
