Since x , y and z are expressed as powers of 2, 4 and 8, they have a relationship of x= 2y and x = 3z
So, if x = 6k, y = 3k and z= 2k
In an examination, 8% of the applicants were found ineligible and 85% of  the eligible candidates belonged to the general category. If 4275 eligible candidates belonged to other categories, then how many candidates applied for the examination?
15 % corresponds to 4275
100% corresponds to how much
4275 *100/15 = 28500
8% of the applications were ineligible.
So, 92% of all the applications = 28500
100% corresponds to how much
28500 * 100/92 = 30978 is approximately 30000
Two numbers are less than a third number by 30% and 37% respectively. How much per cent is the second number less than the first?
Let the 3 numbers be a,b,c.
Given a is 30% less than c
=>a=(10030)%c=.7c
Also given b is 37% less than c
=>b=.63c
ab=(.7c)  (.63c)=.07c
percentage difference between a and b=
Which of the following ratios is greatest?
Thus, option D is the correct answer.
The difference between two numbers is 1365. When the larger number is divided by the smaller number, the quotient is 6 and the remainder is 15. The smaller number is
x  y = 1365 ... (1)
6y + 15 = x ...... (2)
From equations (1) and (2), we get 5y + 15 = 1365
or y = 270
The least number which when increased by 5 is divisible by each one of 24, 32, 36 and 54. is
The given numbers can be expanded as follows
24=2^{3}×3
32=2^{5}
36=2^{2}×3^{2}
54=2×3^{3}
The L.C.M of the above numbers=2^{5}×3^{3}=864
Thus, the lowest number when added by 5 is divisible by the given numbers=8645=859
using this relation the given equation can be expanded as
A sum of Rs. 750 is distributed among A,B,C and D in such a manner that A gets as much as B and C together. B gets Rs. 125 more than C and D gets as much as C. What is A’s Share?

The cost of levelling and turfing a square field at Rs. 160 per hectare is 2624.40. The cost of surrounding it with a railing costing 25 paise per meter is
Area of the square field in hectares=total cost/cost per hectare=2624.40/160=16.4025 ha
1 hectare =1000 m^{2}
∴ area of square field=164025 m^{2}
side of square field=a=√164025=405 m
total cost of surrounding the field with railing=perimeter of field × cost of railing per metre=4 × a × .25= Rs.405
A landowner increased the length and breadth of a rectangular plot by 10% and 20% respectively.The percentage change tn the cost of plot is :
Original area = lb
The length of the plot and the breadth are increased by 10% and 20%. So, the new area = 1.1 x 1.2 x l x b = 1.32lb
So, increase in the area = 32%
Ram spends 20% of his monthly income on his household expenditure, 15% of the rest on books. 30% of rest on clothes and saves the rest. On counting, he comes to know he has finally saved Rs. 9,520. Find out his monthly income?

money spend on household expenditure=20% of xx
money spend on books=15% of (80% of x)=12% of xx
money spent on clothes=30% 0f (68% 0f x)=20.4% of xx
Amount he has saved=[100(20+12+20.4)]% of xx=47.6% of xx=9520
∴ x=20,000
