The average of eight numbers is 25, that of the first two is 20 and of the next three is 26. The sixth number is less than the seventh by 4, and less than the eighth by 6. The last number is


40 + 78 + x - 6 + x - 2 + x - 200

3x = 90

x = 30


Three years ago , the average age of a family of 5 members was 17 years. Inspite of the birth of a child in the family, the present average age of the family remains the same. The present age of the child is


Total age of family 3 years ago = 17x5 = 85 years

Total age of family excluding the child now = (85 + 15) = 100 years

Age of child = 2 years


The average marks of a class of 48 students is 35. Of them, two score zero, of the rest, the first 30 scored an average of 40, the next fourteen scored an average of 20. If the remaining two scored equal marks, what are their individual marks?

The average mark of a class of n students is 64. When eight new students with an average mark of 73 join the class, the new average of the entire class is a whole number. Find the number of students now in the class, given that n lies between 25 and 60.


Let ‘x’ be the increase in the average 

For ‘x’ to be a whole number 72 (= 9 × 8) should be divisible by (n + 8) 
From the choices it can be said that 36 and 72 are two such factors. But 72 does not lie within the range. 
∴ number of students in class are 36.

= 1374 -1300 = 74


60 litres of a 75% solution of wine is taken into a laboratory. 4 litres of the solution is flushed and 4 litres of water is added to compensate the loss. Then 5 litres of the solution is flushed again and 5 litres of water is added. Again 6 litres of the solution is flushed and 6 litres of water is added.

A vessel contains a mixture of two liquids A and B in the ratio of 4:1. When 10 litres of the mixture is replaced with liquid B, the ratio becomes 2:3. How many litres of liquid A was present in the jar initially?



A vessel contains a mixture of two liquids A and B in the ratio of 7:5. When 9 litres of the mixture is taken out and the vessel is filled with B, the ratio of A and B is now 7:9. How many litres of liquid A was there in the vessel initially?


Let 7x and 5x volume of liquids A and Liquid B are present in vessel then,

Hence, 7.3 = 211 liquid A was present.
