If the length of a rectangle is decreased by 5 metres and breadth increased by 3 metres, its area decreases by 9 m^{2}. If its length is increased by 3 m and breadth by 2 m,its area increases by 67 m^{2}. What is the length of a rectangle ?

Solution:

(l - 5)(b+3) = lb - 9 .... (1)

(l+ 3)(b+2) = lb + 67 ...... (2)

(1) => lb - 5b + 3l -15 = lb - 9

or 3l - 5b = 6

(2) = > lb + 3b + 2l + 6 = lb + 67

or 2l + 3b = 61

from these equations, l = 17 m

QUESTION: 27

A feast is organised for a group of 100 people. In this feast 50 people do not like fish and 60 people like chicken. 10 people like neither fish nor chicken. How many people like both fish and chicken ?

Solution:

Number of people who like fish = 50

Number of people who like chicken = 60

Let the number of people who like both fish and chicken = x

Number of people who do not like fish = 50

Number of people who do not like chicken = 100 - 60 = 40

Number of people who do not like either fish or chicken = 10

So, number of people who do not like either fish or chicken or both = 40 + 50 - 10 = 80

Number of people who like at least one of the two dishes = 50 + 60 - x = 100 - Number of people who do not like both the dishes = 100 - 10 = 90

=> x = 20

So, 20 people like both the dishes

QUESTION: 28

35 is the average marks obtained by 120 students. The average marks of successful candidates was 39 and that of unsuccessful candidates was 15. What is the number of successful candidates in that examination ?

Solution:

Unsuccessful candidates = 120 - x

Total score = 35 x 120

Total score is also equal to x * 39 + (120 - x) * 15

So, x = (35 * 120 - 120 * 15)/ 24 = 120 * 20 / 24 = 100

QUESTION: 29

P and Q are two examination halls. If 10 examinees are sent from P into Q, the number of examinees becomes equal in both the halls. If 20 examinees are transferred from Q into the number of examinees becomes double in P in comparison with Q. What is the number of examinees in each P and Q separately ?

Solution:

Since by sending 10 candidates from P into Q, they become equal, the difference between P and Q is 20. Let P have x and Q have "x-20" candidates. But 2*( "x-20" -20) = x+20

So, x = 100 candidates.

QUESTION: 30

Total increase = 121 - 100 = 21 rupees
