AG = 2/3 × 18 = 12 cm Length of BG =

2/3 × 24 = 16 cm Length of CG = 2/3 × 30 = 20 cm (Centroid divides median in

the ratio of 1 : 2) Area of ∆AGB = 1/2 × AG × BG = 1/2 × 12 × 16 = 96 cm²

9d7 2/2 Area of ∆ABC = 3 × Area of ∆AGB = 3 × 96 = 288 cm²

QUESTION: 60

The length of three perpendicular distances of three sides of an equilateral triangle from a point which lies inside that triangle are 9 cm, 8 cm and 7 cm respectively. What is the perimeter of the triangle?

Solution:

Let in ∆ABC, AB = BC = CA = a cm ON ⊥ AB OM ⊥ AC OP ⊥ BC Whose length

respectively is ON = 9 cm, OM = 8 cm,

OP = 7 cm. Area of ∆ABC = Area of

∆AOB + Area of ∆AOC + Area of ∆BOC

√3/4 a² = 1/2 × ON × AB + 1/2 × OM ×

AC + 1/2 × OP × BC √3/4 a² = 1/2 × 9 ×

a + 1/2 × 8 × a + 1/2 × 7 × a √3/4 a² = \

1/2a (9 + 8 + 7) √3/4 a² = 1/2 a × 24

√3/4 a² = 12 a a = (12 × 4)/√3 a = 4√3×

4 = 13√3 Side of ∆ABC, a = 16√3 ∴

Perimeter = 3 × 16√3 = 48√3

Solution:

except it, others are equal to 2 √2401 -

√2209 = 49 – 47 = 2 √1849 - √1681 = 43

– 41 = 2 √2304 - √2025 = 48 – 45 = 3

√1296 - √1156 = 36 – 34 = 2

QUESTION: 64

A and B together can do a piece of work in 30 days, B and C together can do it in 20 days. A starts the work and works on it for 5 days, then B takes it up and works for 15 days. Finally, C finishes the work in 18 days. In how many days can C do the work when doing it separately (in days)?

Solution:

(A + B)’s 1 day work = 1/30 And (B + C)’s 1 day work = 1/20 Also, A’s 5 days

w + B’s 15 days w + C’s 18 days w = 1

work ⇒ A’s 5 days w + B’s 5 days w +

B’s 10 days w + C’s 10 day w + C’s 8 day w = 1 work ⇒ (A + B)’s 5 days w +

(B + C)’s 10 days w + C’s 8 days work = 1 work ⇒ 5/30 + 10/20 + C’s 8 days work = 1 work ⇒ 1/6 + 1/2 + C’s 8 days

work = 1 work ⇒ C’s 8 days work = 1 – ( 1/6 + 1/2 ) work ⇒ C’s 8 days work = 1 –

((1 + 3)/6) = 1 - 4/6 = 1 - 2/3 ∴ C’s 8

days w = 1/3 work ∴ C will complete the work in 8 × 3 = 24 days

QUESTION: 65

The numerator of a fraction is 9 less than its denominator. If the numerator is decreased by 4 and the denominator is increased by 2, then the denominator is 16 times the numerator. Find the fraction

Solution:

Let denominator be x and then

numerator will be x – 9

∴16(x – 9 – 4) = x + 2 16(x – 13 ) = x + 2

16x – 208 = x + 2 X = 210 /15 = 14

Fraction = 5 /14

QUESTION: 66

Two cars X and Y start from two places A and B respectively which are 700 km apart at 9 a.m. Both the cars run at an average speed of 60 km/hr towards each other. Car X stops at 10 a.m. and again starts at 11 a.m. While the other car Y continues to run without stopping. When do the two cars cross each other?

Solution:

Till 11 a.m. Dist. Covered by X = 60 km and Till 11 a.m. Dist. Covered by Y =

120 km Remaining distance to be

covered at 11 a.m. = 700 – 180 = 520 km Relative speed of X and Y = 120 Km / hr

∴ Time taken = 520/120 =13/3 hrs. = 4 hrs. 20 min. ∴ Two cars will cross each other at 3.20 p.m.

QUESTION: 67

In a club of singers and dancers, 10% of the artists are absent on a particular day and 90% of the present artists are dancers. If 2,250 singers are present on that particular day, find the total number of artists in that club?

Solution:

Let, total number of artists be x. Total number of present artists = 90% of x ∴ Number of singers who are present = 10% of 90% of x As per the question, number of present singers = 2,250 ∴ 10% of 90% of x = 2,250 ⇒ x = (2250 × 100 × 100 )/(10 × 90) = 25,000 ∴ Total number of artists= 25,000.

QUESTION: 68

A man wants to invest Rs. 16176 in a fixed deposit for his two daughters whose ages are 12 years  and 16 years in such a  way that, they will get equal amount at an age at 120 years at the rate of 33  % per annum compounded annually. Find the share of younger daughter?

Solution:

Younger daughterElder Daughter (Maturity date of 108 years104 Years

Fixed deposit) = (Let, principal) = Rs. cRs. B After 120 years they will get

equal amount C (1+1/3)^108=B (1+1/3)^104 C (4/3)^108=B (4/3)^104 C (4/3)^4=B C/B =81/256 Therefore, the sum of 16,176 is invested in a ratio of

In a class, 3/5 of the students are girls and rest are boys. If 2/9 of the girls and 1/4 of the boys are absent. What part of the total number of students are present?

Solution:

Let the total number of students in a class be x ∴ According to the question, Number of girls = 3/5 x and number of boys = x - 3/5 x = 2/5 x Number of girls who are absent = 3/5 × 2/9 x = 6x/45 and number of boys who are absent = 2/5 × 1/4 x = x/10 ∴ Total number of students who are present = x - 6x/45 - x/10 = (90x - 12x - 9x)/90 = 69x/90 = 23x/30 ∴ The 23/30 part of the students are present in the class

Armed with the powers, a little over a month ago, to get lenders and defaulting borrowers to sit down and address the messy task of cleaning up toxic bad debts, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has decided to crack the whip. The central bank’s decision to act on the advice of its Internal Advisory Committee and direct lenders to initiate insolvency proceedings against 12 corporate borrowers — each owing in excess of ₹5,000 crore — has come not a day too soon. With gross non-performing assets (NPAs) at about ₹7 lakh crore, a regulatory intervention was imperativenot only to safeguard the health of the banking system but also to ward off any wider impact on the economy. RBI Governor underscored the importance of tackling the bad loans problem as recently as during the June 6-7 meeting of the Monetary Policy Committee when he said: “The quiescent investment cycle remains a key macroeconomic concern. It is, therefore, imperative to ensure resolution of stressed assets of banks and timely recapitalization [of public sector lenders].” While the RBI has not divulged the names of the defaulting dozen, reports suggest they are largely made up of steelmakers and infrastructure companies. That steel companies were among the worst-hit in the wake of the global downturn in commodity prices and depressed demand in recent years is widely known; to that extent the sector’s presence in the list comes as no surprise.

The onus now shifts to the lender consortiums to expedite the insolvency process under the new Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC). The enabling architecture is now in place to speedily bring a defaulting borrower’s operations under the purview of an insolvency professional, once the National Company Law Tribunal has accepted the creditors’ application for initiating insolvency proceedings against the debtor. But the actual timeframe in which the resolution is going to occur remains to be seen, given that the IBC is still in its infancy. While the code has been drafted to bring under its ambit existing laws related to insolvency and bankruptcy, thereby curtailing the options available to a borrower who wishes to mount a legal challenge, the proof of the pudding as always will be in the eating. The fate of this long-overdue attempt at resolving the banking sector’s NPA crisis will ultimately be determined by how quickly the lender consortia are able to initiate the implementation of a resolution plan that retains the defaulting company as a going concern — there are, after all, thousands of direct and indirect jobs at stake here. Or, in the absence of approval for such a plan, start taking steps to liquidate assets.
