QUESTION: 88

At a simple rate of interest, an amount of Rs.2100 becomes Rs. 2352 in 2 years. If the interest rate is decreased by 1% then what is the new interest in 2 years?

Solution:

Interest = PRT/100

Amount = Principal + Interest

Let the rate be r%

Interest = (2100 × r × 2)/100

2352 - 2100 = (2100 × r × 2)/100

252 = 42r ⇒ r = 6%

New rate of interest = r - 1 = 5%

Interest when r% is 5% = (P × (5) × 2)/100 = (2100 × 5 × 2)/100 = Rs. 210

QUESTION: 91

Find the sum of money on which the difference between the compound interest (compounded annually) and the simple interest at the same rate of 5% per annum after 2 years is Rs. 10?

Solution:

Let the sum of money be Rs. ‘P’

Given, CI – SI = 10

⇒ P[(1 + Rate/100)^{Time} – 1] – [(P × Rate × Time)/100] = 10

⇒ P[(1 + 5/100)^{2}) – 1] – [(P × 5 × 2)/100] = 10

⇒ P[(1.05)^{2} – 1] – 0.1P = 10

⇒ 0.1025P – 0.1P = 10

⇒ 0.0025P = 10

⇒ P = 10/0.0025 = 4000

∴ Required sum = Rs. 4000

QUESTION: 92

QUESTION: 95

On selling an article for Rs. 270, the loss, that incurred, is as much as the profit when the article is sold at 10% profit. The cost price of the article is:

Solution:

Let cost price of an article be Rs. A

Profit percentage = 10% = loss percentage

Then,

⇒ 10 = [(A - S.P)/A] × 100

⇒ A = 10A - 10S.P

⇒ S.P = 9A/10

Selling price of an article = Rs. 270

Given,

⇒ 9A/10 = 270

⇒ A = 300

∴ Cost price of an article is Rs. 300.

Where a is the first term, n is the number of terms and d is the common difference

First term of the series (a) is 1

Common difference (d) = 3 - 1 = 2 and n is 25

Sum = 25/2 × (2 + 24 × 2) = 625

QUESTION: 97

A number when divided by 192 gives a remainder of 54. What remainder would be obtained on dividing the same number by 16?

Solution:

When a number x is divided by y and it leaves a remainder z,

the number (x + z) is always divisible by y

When number is divided by 192 and a remainder of 54 is obtained, the number can be written as

(192x + 54) where x is a natural number.

Now this number is divided by 16, both the sum of numbers can be individually divided by 16.

192x is divisible by 16 as 192 is divisible by 16

54 = (16 × 3) + 6

54 when divided by 16 leaves a remainder of 6 and quotient of 3 so when the sum is divided by

16, a remainder of 6 is obtained

QUESTION: 98

A solid hemisphere has radius 14 cm. It is melted to form a cylinder such that the ratio of its curved surface area and total surface area is 2 : 3. What is the radius (in cm) of its base?

Solution:

According to question,

Curved surface area of cylinder/Total surface area of cylinder = 2/3

⇒ 2πRh/2πR(R + h) = 2/3

⇒ h/ (R + h) = 2/3

⇒ 3h = 2R + 2h

⇒ h = 2R ---- (1)

∵ Volume of cylinder = Volume of solid hemisphere

⇒ πR^{2}h = 2/3πr^{3} (where, R = radius of cylinder and r = radius of solid hemisphere)

Putting value of ‘h’ from equation (1),

⇒ R^{2} × 2R = (2/3) × 14 × 14 × 14

⇒ R^{3} = (14 × 14 × 14)/3

⇒ R = 14/∛3

∴ Radius of its base = 14/∛3 cm

QUESTION: 99

Sum of a fraction and thrice of its reciprocal is 73/20. What is the fraction?

Solution:

Let the fraction be x.

Reciprocal = 1/x

Then,

x + 3/x = 73/20

⇒ x^{2} + 3 = 73x/20

⇒ 20x^{2} – 73x + 60 = 0

⇒ x = {- (-73) + √ (5329 – 4800)}/40 or x = {- (-73) - √ (5329 – 4800)}/40

⇒ x = 96/40 = 12/5 or x = 50/40 = 5/4

∴ the required fraction is 5/4 or 12/5.

QUESTION: 100
