The height of a conical tent is 9m. A vertical pole of 6m height is placed 4 m away from its centre such that it touches the surface. Find the slant height of the tent from the base to the point where the pole touches it?

Solution:



Since, ∆’s are similar, AD/AB = DE/BC⇒ 3/9 = 4/BC ∴ BC = 12m
In ∆ ABC, AC = √(〖AB〗^2+BC² ) = √(9^2+12² ) = √(81+144) = = √(225 ) = 15 m In ∆ ADE, AE = √(〖AD〗^2+DE² ) = √(3^2+4² ) = √(9+16) = = √(25 ) = 5 m ∴ CE = AC – AE = 15 – 5 = 10 m

QUESTION: 64

A shopkeeper sold an article at profit of 10%. Had he bought it at 10% less and sold it for Rs. 3 more, then he would have earned a profit of 25%. Find the cost price of the article?
 

Solution:

Let the cost price at = Rs. x
So selling price at 10% profit = (x×110)/100 = 11x/10
According to question, New cost price 10% less = (x×90)/100 = 9x/10 New selling price = 11x/10 + 3 Profit = 25% So. 9x/10 × 125/100 = 11x/10 + 3 45x/40 - 11x/10 = 3 (45x-44x)/40 = 3 x = Rs. 120 ∴ Cost price of the article = Rs. 120 Alternate Method: Let cost price be Rs. 100 Selling price = Rs. 110 According to question, New cost price = Rs. 90 ∴ New selling price = 90 × 125/100 = Rs. 112.5 on 25% profit, Difference in selling price 112.5 - 110 = 2.5 So. if cost price 100 so Difference is Rs. 2.5 but the actual difference is Rs. 3 So, cost price = 3/2.5 × 100 = Rs. 120 x = Rs. 120 cost price of the article = Rs. 120

QUESTION: 65

A team leader can do a job as fast as three members of the team working together. If one of the members can do the job in 5 hrs, the second one takes 10 hrs while the third one takes 25 hours for the same, how much time approximately is taken by the leader alone to complete the work?
 

Solution:

Work done by all the three members in 1 hour = 1/5 + 1/10 + 1/25 = (10+5+2)/50 = 17/50 part of the work ∴ Time taken by them to complete the work = 50/17 hrs ∴ Time taken by the leader = 50/17 hrs = 3 hrs (approx.)

QUESTION: 66

A vessel is full of a mixture of kerosene and petrol in which there is 18% kerosene, 8 litre are drawn off and then the vessel is filled with petrol. Resulting mixture has 15% of kerosene. How much does the vessel hold?​ 

Solution:

Initial ratio = kerosene : Petrol = 18% : 82% = 9 : 41 Final ratio = kerosene : Petrol = 15% : 85% = 3 : 17 or 9 : 51 Difference in ratio due to 8 Ltr mixture drawn off and replaced by petrol. Initial ratio = kerosene : Petrol = 9 : 41 = 50 Final ratio = kerosene : Petrol = 9 : 51 = 60 ∴ Difference = 60 - 50 = 10 (Difference of 10 parts)/(Total parts (60)) So, 10/60 = 8 litre 1/6 = 8 litre Total = 8 × 6 = 48 litre.

QUESTION: 67

By mistake, instead of dividing Rs. 564 among P, Q and R in the ratio 1/3 : 1/4 : 1/5 it was divided in the ratio of 3 : 4 : 5. Who gains the most and by how much?

Solution:

Correct ratio P : Q : R = 1/3 : 1/4 : 1/5 = 1/3 × 60 : 1/4 × 60 : 1/5 × 60 = 20 : 15 : 12 ∴ P’s share = 20/47 × 564 = Rs. 240 Q’s share = 15/47 × 564 = Rs. 180 And R’s share = 12/47 × 564 = Rs. 144 Ratio by mistake P : Q : R = 3 : 4 : 5 ∴ P’s share = 3/12 × 564 = Rs. 141 Q’s share = 4/12 × 564 = Rs. 188 And R’s share = 5/12 × 564 = Rs. 235 It is obvious from above that R gains maximum i.e. Rs. 91

Sum of smallest and largest number = 30 × 70 – 28 × 68 = 196 Difference of smallest and largest number = 140 ∴ Largest number = (196 +140)/2 = 168

QUESTION: 70

25 men can complete a piece of work in 13 days. One man starts the work and after every day one more man joins the work and this continues till the work is completed. Then, in how many days will the work be completed? ​

Solution:

1 man’s one day’s work = 1/(25 ×13) = 1/325 Suppose after n days work is finished. So, 1/325 + 2/325 + ………… n = 325 ⇒ 1 + 2 + 3 + …………….n = 325 ⇒ (n(n+1))/2 = 325 n² + n – 650 = 0 n² + 26n – 25n – 650 = 0 n(n + 26 ) – 25(n + 26) = 0 (n - 25) (n + 26) ∴ n = 25 Hence, the work will be finished in 25 days.

Solution:

cosθ cos2θ cos4θ = 1/4cos3θ cos20° cos40° cos60° cos80° = 1/4cos20° × 3 × cos60° = 1/4cos60° × cos60° = 1/4 × 1/2 × 1/2 = 1/16

QUESTION: 72

A solid diamond falls and break into three pieces whose weights are in the ratio of 4 : 3: 2. The value of each piece is directly proportional to the cube of their weights. Given that the value of solid diamond is Rs. 29,160. Find the loss due to the breakage?

Solution:

Ratio of each piece of diamond = 4x : 3x : 2x ∴ Solid diamond = 4x + 3x + 2x = 9x ∴ Cost of solid diamond = (9x)³ = 729x³ Cost of broken diamond = (4x)² + (3x)² + (2x)² = 99x² ∴ Loss = 729 x³- 99x³ = 630x³ …..(i) Given, 729x³ = 29,160 ∴x³ = 29160/729 = 40 ∴ Loss = 630 × 40 = Rs. 25,200

QUESTION: 94

Directions: Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions. The Union Cabinet’s nod to the State Bank of India’s (SBI) merger with its own five associate banks is welcome. It will place the country’s largest lender among the top 50 global lenders, bring efficiency in its treasury operations and lower operating costs. Bigger size would allow SBI to finance large infrastructure projects and takeover deals with greater ease. Already, the SBI carries the tag, along with ICICI, of a domestic systemically important Bank and, therefore, needs to set aside more capital than its peers to cover risks. The combined entity should be well capitalized. However, the merger cannot fix the problem of bad loans. They must be resolved so that the capital infusion does not end up as provisioning against bad loans. Post 2009-10, SBI had gained market share in deposits after the merger of State Bank of Indore with itself. So, consolidation will be beneficial for deposit growth. However, employee integration could be tricky, apart from other reported challenges such as provisions for pension liability due to differing employment benefit structures and synchronizing accounting policies for recognition of bad loans. According to analysis by Kotak Institutional Equities, SBI has 18% share in branches and 22% share in deposits and loans. It would be in the interest of the industry and the economy to not add to systemic risk. To keep banking competitive and to prevent the creation of banks that are too big to fail and of bankers who are too big to go to jail, the government should resist the temptation to rush into more bank mergers. India needs more payment banks and small banks to achieve financial inclusion not gigantism. Let there be a couple of big banks, yet more new banks of different sizes and intense competition amongst them.
