QUESTION: 56

A person invest some amount in a business into 2 parts. If he invest 1st part at 8% for 3 years and 2nd part invest at 7 x 1/2% p.a. for 4 years. Total Simple Interest from both instalment is Rs. 2262. If 2/5th of the sum of first investment is equal to 3/7 times of the 2nd investment. Find the sum (principal) of each part?

Solution:

P₁ × 2/5 = P₂ × 3/7 (P₁)/(P₂) = 15/14 P₁ : P₂ = 15 : 14

Let the sum be 100 unit

Then P₁ = 150 unit and P₂ = 140 units

Sum of Simple Interest of both is 2262 i.e. (150 × 8 ×3)/100 = (140 ×15 ×4)/(2 ×100) = 78 unit Now 78 unit = 2262 So, 100 unit principal = 2262/78 × 100 = 2900

Therefore, Sum invest in 1st Part = 2900 × 15/29 = Rs. 1,500 Sum invest in 2nd part = 2900 × 14/29 = Rs. 1,400

Solution:

Let AB is tower of 100m height x,y are

the place where 2 boys standing. ∠AxB

= 30° ∠AyB = 45° D = h (cotα + cotβ) D

= 100 (cot30° + cot45°) D = 100 (√3 + 1)

(perpendicular)² + (base)² (x+y)² =

(perpendicular)² + (2√ab)² perpendicular

= √((x+y)²- 4ab) perpendicular = x-y

Hence, tan37° = (2√ab)/(x-y)

QUESTION: 60

QUESTION: 64

In ∆ABC, ∠A = 90°, AD ⊥ BC and ∠B = 45°. If AB = x, then the value of AD in terms of x is?

Solution:

∠B = ∠A, So AB = AC = x Then AD = BC/2 {by mid point theorem} {∆ADC ~ ∆BAC } BC = x√z {by Pythagoras theorem} So, AD = (x√2)/2 = x/√2

QUESTION: 65

The area of the largest triangle inscribed in a semi-circle of radius R is-

QUESTION: 66

J, K and L enter into partnership with capital contributions of Rs 30,000, Rs 45,000 and 25,000 respectively. J is the working partner and he gets 30% of the profit for managing the business. The balance profit is distributed in proportion to their capital investments. At the year-end, J gets Rs 400 more than K and L together. Find the share of each?

Solution:

Profit Sharing Ratio of Partners J:K:L = 6:9:5 (their investment ratio) Let the

total profit be = 100 J Share of profit = 30% of 100 + 6/20 of (70% of 100) = 30 + 6/20 × 70 = 51 K and L share of Profit = (100 – J’s Share) = 100 – 51 = 49

Difference (51 - 49) = Rs 400 2 unit = 400 100 unit = 20000 Therefore total

profit earned = Rs. 20000 Calculation of each partners share of profit J’s 30%

profit = 20000 × 30% = 6000 Remaining 14000 (20000-6000) will be distributed among all the partners In their

respective investment ratio J’s Share = 6000 + 6/20 of 14000 = 10,200 K’s Share = 9/20 of 14000 = 6,300 L’s Share = 5/20 of 14000 = 3,500

QUESTION: 67

Amit makes 900 articles at a cost of 40 paise/article. He fixed the selling price such that if only 500 articles are sold, he would have made profit of 50% on the outlay. However, 250 articles get spoilt and he was able to sell 650 articles at this price. Find his actual profit percent as the percentage of total outlay assuming that the unsold articles are useless?

Solution:

CP of 900 articles = 900 ×40/100 = Rs

360 SP of 500 articles = 360 + 360 ×50/100 = Rs 540 SP of 1 article =

540/500 = 27/25 SP of 650 articles =

27/25× 650 = Rs 702 Profit = 702 – 360 = Rs 342 Profit % = 342/360× 100 = 95%

By launching the GSAT-9 ‘South Asia satellite’, India has reaffirmed the Indian Space Research Organisation’s scientific prowess, but the messaging is perhaps more geopolitical than geospatial. To begin with, the Centre has kept its promise of considering India’s “neighbourhood first”. Within a month of taking over as Prime Minister in 2014, Narendra Modi went to Sriharikota for the launch of PSLV C-23 and “challenged” ISRO scientists to build this satellite for the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation. The decision was then announced at the SAARC summit in Kathmandu, and the government has kept its commitment of gifting its neighbours at least one transponder each on the GSAT-9, a project that cost about ₹450 crore. India has no doubt gained goodwill across the subcontinent through the gesture, and the moment was neatly captured by the videoconference that followed the launch, showing all SAARC leaders (with the exception of Pakistan’s) together on one screen as they spoke of the benefits they would receive in communication, telemedicine, meteorological forecasting and broadcasting. The message is equally strong to South Asia’s other benefactor, China, at a time when it is preparing to demonstrate its global clout at the Belt and Road Forum on May 14-15. The Belt and Road Initiative is an infrastructure network that every SAARC nation other than India has signed on to. China has pledged billions of dollars in projects to each of the countries in the region; that, India is obviously not in a position to match.

Where India does excel is in its space programme, as it is the only country in South Asia that has independently launched satellites on indigenouslydeveloped launch vehicles. However, in recent years Pakistan and Sri Lanka have launched satellites with assistance from China, while Afghanistan, the Maldives and Nepal are also understood to have discussed satellite projects with China. Bangladesh, which will launch its first satellite Bangabandhu-1 this year, is working with a European agency. With the GSLV launch India is showing that where it is capable its commitment to the development of its neighbours is strong. Finally, by going ahead with the project despite Pakistan’s decision to pull out, the Modi government is signalling that it will continue with its plans for the neighbourhood — ‘SAARC minus one’ — if necessary. This vision was dealt a minor blow recently when Bhutan pulled out of the ‘mini-SAARC’ alternative plan of a motor vehicles agreement for BBIN (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India Nepal), but the government’s persistence indicates it will not be deterred by the obvious domestic constraints of the SAARC grouping. As Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani, particularly aggrieved by Pakistan’s refusal to grant transit rights for India-Afghanistan trade, said at the launch of the GSLV-F09: “If cooperation through land is not possible, we can be connected through space.”
