Partition of Bengal was done during the period of:
7857 + 3596 + 4123 = 1557615576 / 96 = 162.25
741560 + 935416 + 1143 + 17364 =?
741560 + 935416 = 1676976
1143 + 17364=18507
So, the total sum = 1676976 + 18507 = 1695483
36% of 4800 = 1728
.2% of 1320 = 2.64
So, 36% of 4800 * .2% of 1320 = 1728 *2.64 = 4561.92
Ramana’s salary is decreased by 10%. By what percent his decreased salary be raised to have the original salary?
Let his original salary be 100 Rs.
Decreased salary = 100  10% = 90 Rs.
Amount to be increased = 10 RS
Percentage = 10*100/90 = 11 11/9%
To get 35% a number, the number should be multiplied by
7/20 = 35%
So, to get 35% of a number, it needs to be multiplied by 7/20
Let the number be N
20% of N = 10
So, N = 10/20% = 10 x 5 = 50
A sum doubles in 20 years. How long will it take to become 8 times the original amount?
The sum doubles every twenty years. So, it becomes 4 times in 40 years and 8 times in 60 years.
The sum of two numbers is 100 and their difference is 50. The ratio of these numbers is:
x + y = 100
x  y = 50
So, x = 75 and y = 25
Ratio = 3:1
The population of a town increases at 10% per annum. If the present population is 160000, what will be the population after 4 years?
The rate of growth of the population = 10%
Population of the town = 160000
So population after 4 years = 1.1 x 1.1 x1.1 x 1.1 times 1,60,000
= 2.34 lakhs
The ratio of the volumes of two cubes is 1 : 27. The ratio of other surface areas will be
Volume of cube = s^{3}
Area of the cube = 6 x s^{2}
So, if the volume is in the ratio of 1:27, the sides are in the ratio of 1:3 and hence the areas are in the ratio of 1:9
The simple interest on a certain sum at the rate of 4% per annum in 4 years is Rs. 80 more than the simple interest on the same sum at 5% per annum after 3 years. The sum is
Let the principal be P
SI = P xT x R/100
difference = P x 4 x 4 /100  P x 5 x 3/100
= 16P/100  15P/100 = 80
P = 8000 Rs.
At what rate of compound interest a sum will be 25/16 times of itself in 2 years?
In an examination, a student gets 20% of total marks and fails by 30 marks. Another student gets 32% of total marks which is more than the minimum pass marks by 42 marks. The pass percentage is
Let the total marks be x
and pass marks be z
So, x * 20% = z  30
x * 32% = z + 42
Implies, x * 12% = 72 or x = 600
z = 150
The required ratio = 150/600 = 25%
A particle is thrown upwards at the velocity of 39.2 m/sec. Time to reach the highest point is
initial velocity=u= 39.2 m/s
final velocity=v= 0 m/s
acceleration due to gravity=g=9.8m/s^{2}
We know that, v = u + gt
On substituting the above values, we get
t=4 s
If the interest is compounded annually and the compound interest after 3 years at 10% per annum on a sum is Rs. 331, the principal is
A shopkeeper earns 20% by allowing a discount of 10% on the marked price of an article. An article is marked at Rs. 280, its actual price is
Let the cost of the article be x Rs.
Selling price = 1.2 x
But 1.2 x = 280 * .9
So, x = 280 * .9/1.2 = 210 Rs.
Ram bought 1600 eggs at the rate of Rs.3.75 per dozen. He sold 900 of them at 2 eggs for Re 1 and the remaining at 5 eggs for Rs. 2. Find his loss or gain percent.
Cost price of the eggs = 3.75 x 1600/ 12 = 500 Rs.
Selling Price = 900 eggs x 1/2 + 700 x 2/5 = 450 + 280 = 730 Rs
Profit % = (730  500)/500 = 230/500 = 46%
In an election a candidate gets 40% of votes polled and is defeated by the winning candidate by 298 votes. Find the total number of votes polled.
There is an assumption in the question that there are only two candidates participating in the election. One candidate got 40% votes and the other candidate got 60% votes. The difference is 20% votes which are 298. If 298 votes are 20%, 100% is how much.
= 298/20% = 1490
Two numbers are less than the third number by 30% and 37% respectively. By what percent is the second number less than the first number?
Let the third number be x. So, the first number is .7x
The second number is .63x
So, the second number is less than the first number by .7 ie 10% of the first number
A man goes from A to B At the speed of 5 kmph and returns from B to A at 4 kmph. His average speed during the whole journey is
Let the distance between A and B be d
Time taken for travel from A to B is d/5
Time taken for travel from B to A is d/4
Average speed = total distance/ total time = 40/9
