Solution:

P x R X T / 100 is the simple interest

So, P x (R+3) x 2/100 - P x R x 2/ 100 = 450

Solving for P, we get P = 7500 Rs.

P \times (1+r)^{3}P×(1+r)3 = 17576

Dividing we get 1 + r = 1.04

So, r = 4%

A sum of Rs. 625 is made up of 80 currency notes which are either Rs. 10 or Rs. 5 denomination. The number of Rs. 10 notes are---------

Solution:

Let there be x 10 rupee notes. So the number of 5 rupee notes = 80 - x

So, total value of the money = 10x + (80- x)*5

= 10x + 400 - 5x = 400 + 5x

But 400 + 5x = 625

so x = 225/5 = 45

QUESTION: 51

A certain job was assigned to a group of men to do in 20 days. But 12 men did not turn up for the job and the remaining men did the job in 32 days. The original number of men in the group was-

Solution:

Let there be x men initially. They were supposed to complete the work in 20 days.

When 12 men didn't show up the work was done in 32 days

So, x- 12 men did the work in 32 days

But x-12 men were supposed to take 20x/ (x-12) days

So, 20 x/ (x-12) = 32

so,

x = 32

QUESTION: 52

A certain number of men can do a work in 60 days. If there were 8 men more, it could be finished in 10 days less. How many men were there in the begining ?

Solution:

X+ 8 men can finish the work in 50 days.

but x + 8 men take 60x/ (x+8) days

60x/ (x+8) = 50

So, x = 40

QUESTION: 53

12 men and 18 boys working 7\frac{1}{2}721​ hours a day can do a certain work in 60 days. If one man works equal to 2 boys, then the number of boys required to help 21 men to do twice the work in 50 days, working 9 hours a day, will be--

Solution:

2 boys = 1 man

So, 21 men can do work W is 60 days working 7.5 hours per day.

to do 2W, 42 men are needed.

To do the job in 50 days, 60 x 42 / 50 men are needed.

To do the job working 9 hours a day, 7.5/9 x 60 x42/50 men are needed

= 42 men

We only have 21 men so, we get 42 extra boys to get the work needed for the 21 extra men.

QUESTION: 54

The average expenditure of a man for the first five months is Rs. 1200 and for the next seven months is Rs. 1300. Find his monthly average income if he saves Rs. 2900 during the year ?

Solution:

Let his monthly salary be x rupees.

So, 5 (x - 1200) + 7 (x-1300) = 2900

12x - 6000 - 9100 = 2900

So, x = 18000/12 = 1500

QUESTION: 55

The average temperature for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday was 40C. The average for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday was 41 C. If on Thursday temperature is 45C, what was it on Monday ?

Solution:

So,

Temperature for Monday = 165 - 123 = 42 C

QUESTION: 56

Of the three numbers, second is twice the first and is also thrice the third. If the average of the three numbers is 44, the largest number is-

Solution:

Let the first number be 3x. Second number is 6x. Third number is 2x.

So average = (2x + 3x + 6x)/3 = 11x/3

But 11x/3 = 44

So, x = 12

6x = 72

QUESTION: 57

Of the three numbers whose average is 60, the first is one fourth of the sum of the others. The first number is--

Solution:

The average of the three numbers is 60

The first number is one fourths of the sum of the others.

or 4p = q + r

\frac {p + q + r}{3}3p+q+r​ = 60

So, 5p/3 = 60

p = 180/5 = 36

QUESTION: 58

The average age of a family of 5 members is 24 years. If the age of the youngest member be 6 years, find the average age of the family at the birth of the youngest member-

Age of the youngest member is 6 years.

Let the ninth person's expenses be x rupees.

Total expense by the group = x + 240

Average = (x+ 240)/9

But the average is 20 less than x

(x+240)/9 + 20 = x

x + 240 + 180 = 9x

8x = 420

x = 52.5

QUESTION: 60

In a circle team of eleven players, one player weighing 42 kg, is injured and his place is taken by another player. If the average weight of the team is increased by 100 grams as a result of this, then the weight of the new player is--

Solution:

Let the weight of the new player be x kgs.

Total weight as a result of his inclusion = TW - 42 + x

Average weight = (TW - 42 + x)/11

But average weight before = TW/11

(TW - 42 + x)/11 - TW/11 = .1

x - 42 = 1.1

So, x = 43.1 kgs

QUESTION: 61

The average age of 8 persons in a committee is increased by two years when two men whose ages are 35 years and 45 years are replaced by two women. The average age of two women is (in yrs)--

Total of their ages = 2A

2A - 80 = 16

A = 96/2 = 48

QUESTION: 62

One-fourth of a certain journey was covered at an average speed of 45 km/hour, one-third at the speed of 48 km/hour and the remaining journey at the speed of 50 km/hour. The average age speed of the whole journey in km/hour is---

Solution:

Let the total distance be 1200 kms

Time taken for first one fourth = 300/ 45 = 20/3 = 6.67

Next one third time = 400/ 48 = 25/3 = 8.33

Remaining = 500/50 = 10

Average speed = total distance / total time = 1200/25 = 48 kmph

QUESTION: 63

Visitors to a show were charged Rs. 150.00 each on the first day, Rs. 75.00 on the second day and Rs. 25.00 on the third day and the total attendance on the three days were in the ratio 2 : 5 : 13. The average charge per person for the whole show is--

Solution:

Let the total visitors be 20. Total revenue = 2 x 150 + 5 x 75 + 13 x 25 = 300 + 375 + 325

= 1000

Average ticket price = Total revenue / total visitors = 1000/ 20 = 50
