If ab + bc + ca = 0

Find the value of 1/(a^2-bc) + 1/(b^2-ca)  + 1/(c^2-ab)

Solution:

ab + bc + ca = 0 bc = - ab – ca

ca = - ab – bc ab = -bc –ca

Now, 1/(a^2-bc) + 1/(b^2-ca) + 1/(c^2-ab) = 1/(a^2-(-ab-ca)) + 1/(b^2-(-ab-bc)) + 1/(c^2-(-bc-ca)) =1/(a^2+ab+ca) + 1/(b^2+ab+bc) + 1/(c^2+bc+ca) = 1/(a(a+b+c)) + 1/(b(a+b+c)) + 1/(c(a+b+c)) = (bc+ca+ab)/(abc(a+b+c)) = 0/(abc(a+b+c)) = 0

QUESTION: 60

After selling 20 pens, a Shopkeeper earn a profit of the selling price of 6 books. While selling 20 books, a shopkeeper losses a selling price of 8 pens. The numerical value of the Profit and loss % is equal and the Cost price of pen is half the cost price of the book. Find the ratio of selling price of pen to book?

Solution:

Let the cost price of a pen be x, then the cost price of a book is 2x And the Selling price of the pen and the book be a and b respectively Now according to the Question, Cost price of 20 pen = 20x and the profit = 6b Profit % = 6b/20x ×100 = 30b/x Similarly, Cost price of 20 books = 40x and the loss = 8a Loss % = 8a/40x × 100 = 20a/x Since the numerical values are equal ∴ 30b/x = 20a/x a/b = 3/2 The required ratio is 3:2

QUESTION: 61

Jack is twice efficient as Jill and Jill can do a piece of work in 30 days. Jill started the work and after a few days Jack joined him. They completed the work in 22 days. From the starting, for how many days they worked together?

Solution:

JILL    JACK
Efficiency 1 : 2 Number of Days 30 15 Jill’s one day work = 1/30 Jack’s one day work = 1/15 (Jack + Jill) one day work = 1/30 + 1/15 = (1+2)/30 = 1/10 Now, let us assume Jack joined Jill after (22 - x) days then, (22-x)/30 + (x ×1)/10 = 1 ⇒ (22-x+3x)/30 = 1 ⇒ 22 + 2x = 30 ⇒ x = 4

QUESTION: 62

other LCM = 3 × a × b × c × d × e = 159 a × b × c × d × e = 53 The multiplication of all the number = 3a × 3b × 3c × 3d × 3e = 243 × 53 = 12879

QUESTION: 64

The difference between each Internal angle and each external angle of a polygon is 60°. Find the number of Sides.

Solution:

Internal Angle of a Polygon = ((n-2)×180°)/n

External Angle of a Polygon = (360°)/n ((n-2)×180°)/n - (360°)/n = 60° ((n-2)×3)/n - 6/n = 1 (3n-6-6)/n = 1

3n – 12 = n n = 6

QUESTION: 65

If x² + x = 11find (x+4)³ +1/((x+4)³)

Solution:

Let x+4 = m x = m – 4 Now,

x² + x = 11 (m – 4)² + m – 4 = 11 m² + 16 - 8m + m – 4 – 11 = 0 m² + 1 - 7m = 0 m² + 1 = 7m

Dividing the equation by m We get, m + 1/m =

7 m³ + 1/m³ = (m + 1/m)³ - 3(m + 1/m) = 343 – 21 = 322

QUESTION: 66

Two buildings are collinear with the base of a tower and are at a distance 9m and 16m from the base of the tower. The angles of elevation from these two building of the top of the tower are complementary. What is the height of the tower?

Solution:

Let the height of the tower be h And ∠CBD = θ and
∠ DAC = 90 – θ In ∆ BCD tan θ = CD/BC = h/9 …………(i) In ∆ ACD tan(90 - θ) = CD/AC cot θ = h/16 ……………………….(ii) On

multiplying Equation (i) and (ii) tan θ × cot θ = h/9 × h/16 1 = h²/144
Now h = 12 m

O and C are the respectively orthocentre and circumcentre of ∆PQR. The line PO is extended which intersect line QR at S. such that, ∠QCR = 140°, ∠PQS = 58°. Find ∠RPS = ?

Solution:

In ∆ PQS ∠QPS + ∠PQS + ∠PSQ = 180° ∠QPS + 58° + 90° = 180° ∠QPS = 32°

∠RPS 70° = 32° + ∠RPS ∠RPS = 38°

QUESTION: 68

Sachin can complete a job in 15 days. Ankit alone can complete the same job in 10 days. Sachin works for 9 days and then the remaining job is completed by Ankit. How many days will it take Ankit to complete the remaining job alone?

Solution:

Sachin’s 1 day work = 1/15

Sachin’s 9 day work = 9/15 = 3/5 ,

Remaining work = 1 - 3/5 = 2/5 Ankit’s 1 day work = 1/10

This means Ankit does 1/10 work in 1 day Ankit will do 1 work in 10 days Ankit will do 2/5 work in 10 × 2/5 = 4 days Ankit will complete the remaining job alone in 4 days.

QUESTION: 69

The ratio of the speed of car to that of a train is 15:22. If the speed of the train is 35 Km/hr more than that of the car, what is the speed of the car?

Solution:

Let the speed of car and train be 15x & 22x respectively. According to the question, 22 x - 15x = 35 ⇒ 7x = 35 ⇒ x = 5km/hr ∴ Speed of the car = 15x = 15 × 5 = 75 km/hr.

QUESTION: 96

The Centre would like us to believe that the Smart Cities Mission will transform urban life in the agglomerations that enter the elite club. With the latest inclusions, there are 90 cities in the list, each of which proposes to turn ‘smart’, utilizing core funding from the Centre and other resources. By all accounts, the provision of basic services in urban India has been worsening, and this is clearly reflected in the winning city proposals: 81 of the selected plans seek funds for affordable housing, new schools and hospitals, and redesign of roads. This is at best a partial list, and there are many more aspects to achieving inclusivity. There is a high-visibility campaign around the Smart Cities Mission, but there is little evidence to suggest that State and local governments have either the fine-grained data or the capability to analyze them in order to understand the evolving needs of their communities. The Centre has apparently decided to skirt such a fundamental problem by adopting a ‘managed urbanization’ approach in the chosen cities, with the powers of municipal councils delegated to a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), under the Companies Act, that will act in its own wisdom. Given that this is the model adopted by the two-year-old Mission, the Centre must present a status report on what the SPVs have achieved so far.

Any serious attempt at improving the quality of life in cities would depend on how governments approach data. It would be smart, for instance, to use sensors to estimate the flow of vehicles and pedestrians, and create smartphone applications for the public to report on a variety of parameters. Making such data open would enable citizens’ groups to themselves come up with analyses to help city administrators make decisions, boost transparency and make officials accountable. There are several international examples now, such as the Array of Things sensors being installed on Chicago streets, which let people download the raw data on air quality, transport, pedestrian movement and standing water. Although India’s Smart Cities Mission has identified more than 20 priority areas, interventions by the respective agencies are weak. Access to special funding should make it mandatory for all public transport providers — city bus corporations, Metro Rail and suburban trains — to provide real-time passenger information in the form of open data, an inexpensive global standard that raises both access and efficiency through smartphone applications. Making street-level waste management data public would lead to a heat map of the worst sites, compelling managers to solve the problem. Clearly, there is a lot of low-hanging fruit on the road to smartness, and a nimble policy approach can tap this quickly. More importantly, the ideology that guides the plan should recognize that the vibrant life of cities depends on variety and enabling environments, rather than a mere technology-led vision. Pollution-free commons, walkability and easy mobility, with a base of reliable civic services, is the smart way to go.

What model is adopted by the Smart Cities Mission?
