Solution:

D) 48
Explanation: A directly proportional B, A directly proportional to C: A = kB, A = kC Or A = kBC When B = 6 and C = 2, A = 24: 24 = k*6*2 k = 2 Now when B = 8 and C = 3: A = 2*8*3

QUESTION: 19

A is directly proportional to B and also inversely proportional to the square of C.When B = 16 and C = 2, A = 36. Find the value of A when B = 32 and C = 4.

Solution:

C) 18
Explanation: A = kB, A = k/C2 Or A = kB/ C2
When B = 16 and C = 2, A = 36: 36 = k*16/ 22 k = 9 Now when B = 32 and C = 4: A = 9*32/ 42

QUESTION: 20

A is directly proportional to the inverse of B and also inversely proportional to C. When B = 36 and C = 9, A = 42. Find the value of A when B = 64 and C = 21.
