The ratio of the present age of a man and his wife is 4:3 and 4 years hence the ratio of their ages will be 9:7 If the ratio of their ages at the time of their marriage was 13:9, how many years ago were they married ?

Solution:

Let the ages today be 4x and 3x. Ages four years from now are 4x + 4 and 3x + 4

But 4x+4:3x+4 = 9:7

So, x = 8

So, their current ages = 32 and 24

Let them be married for x years

Age at marriage = 32 - x and 24 - x

But 32 - x : 24 - x = 13: 9

So x = 6 years.

QUESTION: 51

The average height of 35 students in a class is 4’2”. Three students of average height moved to new section while 6 students of total height 33’4” joined the class The average height of the student in the class is now

After the students left, there will be 32 students with the same average height. 4 ft and 2 inches

Total height = 32 x 4.17 = 133.44

Total height of 6 students is 33 ft and 4 inches. = 33.33

New total height = 133.44 + 33.33 = 166.77

New average height = 166.77/ 38 = 4 feet 4 inches

QUESTION: 52

If 16 sheep or 12 horses eat the grass of a field in 20 days then in how many days will 5 sheep and 4 horses eat it ?

Solution:

12 horses can feed in 20 days

So, 4 horses can feed in 20 x 3 = 60 days

Together they can feed in

1/1/60 + 1/64 = 30 days approximately

So, answer is (a)

QUESTION: 53

The smallest positive integer n with 24 divisors considering 1 and n as divisors is

Solution:

For any given number, that can be represented as A^{x x} B^{y}, etc

The number of factors is denoted by (x+1) x ( y+1), etc

360 = 2^{3} x 3^{2} x 5^{1}

So the number of factors = (3 +1) x (2+ 1) (1+ 1) = 4x3x2 = 24

For 240, it is 2^{4} x 3^{1} x 5^{1}

Number of factors = 5 x 2 x 2 = 20 only

QUESTION: 54

The diagonal of a rectangular field is 50 m and one of the sides is 48 m If the cost of cutting the grass of the field is Rs 24 per square metre then the total cost of cutting all grass of the rectangular field is

Total cost of grass cutting is 48 x 14 x 24 = 16,128

QUESTION: 55

The ratio of the ages of X and Y three years ago was 4:5 and that after three years will be 5:6. Then the sum of the ages of X and Y is

Solution:

But 4x+6:5x+6 = 5:6

Solving we get the answer as x = 6

Sum of today's ages = 4x + 5x + 6 = 9x + 6 = 60 years
