5400 + 3x = 3900 + 4x
x = 5400 – 3900 = Rs. 1500

QUESTION: 52

The value of (〖(1024)〗^(n/(5 ))   × 4^(2n+1))/(〖16〗^(n )  × 4^(n- 1)  )

Solution:

(〖(1024)〗^(n/(5 )) × 4^(2n+1))/(〖16〗^(n ) × 4^(n- 1) )
⇒ (〖(4⁵)〗^(n/5) × 4^(2n+1))/(4^2n × 〖4 〗^(n-1) )
⇒ (4^(n+2n+1) )/(4^(2n+n- 1) )
⇒ (4^(3n+1) )/(4^(3n- 1) )
⇒ 4^(3n+1-3n+1)
⇒ 4² = 16

QUESTION: 53

The altitude drawn to the base of an isosceles triangle is 6 cm and the perimeter of the triangle is 36 cm. The area (in cm²) of the triangle is

Solution:

Let AB = AC = a cm.
BD = DC = b cm.
Altitude of isosceles triangle is also median.
6² = a² - b²
36 = a² - b² ………… (i)
Perimeter = 36
a + a + 2b = 36
2a + 2b = 36
a + b = 18 ………. (ii)
On dividing (i) & (ii) we get,
(a² - b² )/(a+b) = 36/18 = 2
((a+b) (a-b))/((a+b)) = 2
a – b = 2
a + b = 18
on solving,
2a = 20
a = 10
b = 8
BC = 16
Area of ∆ABC = 1/2 × AD × BC = 1/2 × 6 × 16 = 48 cm²

QUESTION: 54

If x + 1/x = 3, where x ≠ 0, then the value of (x3 (x+3)+x(5x+3)+1)/(x4+1) is

Solution:

x + 1/x = 3
x² + 1 = 3x
On squaring, we get
(x² + 1)² = 9x²
x⁴ + 1 + 2 x² = 9 x²
x⁴ + 1 = 7x²
Now,
(x^3 (x+3)+x (5x+3)+1)/(x^4+1)
⇒ (〖x^4+3x 〗^(3 )+5x^2+3x + 1)/(x^4+1)
⇒ (〖〖(x〗^4+1)+ 5x〗^(² )+3x(x² + 1))/(x^4+1)
⇒ (7x^2+5x^2+3x(3x))/7x²
⇒ (7x^2+5x^2+9x²)/7x²
21x²/7x² = 3

QUESTION: 55

A book is listed at Rs. 2,400 and the discount offered is 10%. What additional discount must be given to bring the net selling price Rs. 1,800?

Solution:

Marked price = Rs. 2,400
After 1st discount = 90/100 × 2400 = 2160
Selling price = Rs. 1,800
Additional discount % = (2160-1800)/2160 × 100 = 360/2160 × 100 = 16*2/3%

QUESTION: 56

The distance between two parallel poles is 65√3 m. The angle of depression of the top of the second pole when seen from the top of first pole is 30°. What will be the height of second pole if the first pole is 110 m long?

Solution:

Let y be the height of second pole
Tan 30° = x/(65√3)
1/√3 = x/(65√3)
x = 65
So, y = 110 – 65 = 45 m.

QUESTION: 57

Gagan can do a piece of work in 14 days. Magan is 40% more efficient than Gagan. How many days will Magan and Gagan together complete the work?

Required work = 70/(5 + 7) = 70/12 = 35/6 = 5*5/6 days

QUESTION: 58

The ratio of the angles ∠A and ∠B of a non-square rhombus ABCD is 7:5, then the value of the ∠C is

Solution:

Ratio of ∠A and ∠B is 7:5
(∠A)/(∠B) = 7/5
In rhombus, ∠A + ∠B = 180˚
Let the angles be 7x and 5x
Then,
7x + 5x = 180
X = 180/12 = 15˚
A = 7 × 15 = 105˚
∠A = ∠C = 105˚

QUESTION: 59

Three Partners Amar, Akbar and Anthony invested in the ratio of 3/2, 2/3, 4/3 in a business. After 3 months Amar increased his capital by 50%. If the total profit of Rs. 8460 earned at the end of the year, find what was the Amar’s Share of profit?

Solution:

According to the question
67.5 + 48x + 96x = 8460
211.5x = 8460
x = 8460/211.5 = 40
Hence, Share of Amar = 67.5 × 40 = 2700

QUESTION: 60

The time required for a sum of money to amount to five times itself at 16% simple interest p.a. will be

4x = (x ×16 ×T)/100
T = 25 years.

QUESTION: 61

Flipkart wishes to gain 25% after allowing 10% discount on the market price to his customers. At what percent higher than the cost price must they mark their goods?

Solution:

Solution : Let the cost price of goods = 100
SP of goods = 125% of 100 = 125
MP of goods = 125 × 100/90 = 1250/9
Difference of MP and CP
= 1250/9 - 100 = (1250-100)/9 = 350/9
Difference% = (350/9)/100 × 100
= 350/9 = 39%(approx.)

QUESTION: 62

The value of √(56+√(56 +√(56+ √(56+√56  ))   ))  is

Solution:

Let x = √(56+√(56 +√(56+ √(56+√56 )) ))
x = √(56+x)
Squaring both the sides
x² = 56 + x
x² - x – 56 = 0
x² - 8x + 7x – 56 = 0
x(x-8) + 7(x + 7)
x = 8 , -7

QUESTION: 63

If secθ + tanθ = 3+√10, than then the value of sinθ+cosθ is

Solution:

secθ + tanθ = 3+√10 ............... (i)
(sec²θ - tan²θ) = 1
(secθ + tanθ) (secθ - tanθ) = 1
(3+√10) (secθ - tanθ) = 1
secθ - tanθ = 1/(3+√10) = 1/(√10+3)
secθ - tanθ = √10-3 ............ (ii)
From (i) and (ii) we get,
2secθ = 2√10
secθ = √10
cosθ = 1/√10
sin²θ + cos²θ = 1
sin²θ + 1/10 = 1
sin²θ = 1- 1/10 = 9/10
sinθ = 3/√10
sinθ + cosθ = 3/√10 + 1/√10
= 4/√10 = 4/√10 × √10/√10 = (2√10)/5

QUESTION: 64

A student multiplied a number by 4/5 instead of 5/4. What is the percentage error in the calculation.

A kite is in the shape of a square with a diagonal 24cm, attached to an equilateral triangle of the base 6cm. How much paper has been used to make it?

Solution:

Area of the square = 1/2 × (Diagonal)^2 = 1/2 ×(24)^2
= 1/2 × 24 × 24 = 288 cm²
Area of equilateral triangle = √3/4 × (side)^2
= √3/4 × 6 × 6 = 9√3 cm²
Total area = 288 + 9√3 = 9(32 +√3)cm²

QUESTION: 71

A boat takes 1/3rd time in moving a certain distance downstream than upstream. The ratio of the speed of the boat in still water and that of current is.

Solution:

Downstream speed = x+y
Upstream speed = x-y
Speed = distance/time
∴ x+y = D/T .................... (i)
x-y = D/3T .................... (ii)
From (i) & (ii)
2x = D/T + D/3T
2x = (3D+D)/3T = 4D/3T
x = 2D/3T
and;
y = D/T - 2D/3T
= D/3T
x/y = 2D/3T × 3T/D
x/y = 2

The data given in a Bar diagram relate to the department wise admission of 1280 students to BSc (Honors) first year classes of a certain college in the given five subjects. Study the graph and answer the question.

Q. The ratio of number of Male students in Physics and Mathematics than that of female students in Statistics and Economics is

Solution:

Male students in (Physics + Mathematics) = 248 + 120 = 368
Female students in (Statistics + Economics) = 64 + 136 = 200
Required Ratio = 368 : 200 = 46 : 25

The data given in a Bar diagram relate to the department wise admission of 1280 students to BSc (Honors) first year classes of a certain college in the given five subjects. Study the graph and answer the question.

Q. The difference between the male students and the female students in all the classes are

Solution:

Total number of Male students = 248+244+120+60+128 = 800
Total number of female students = 104+96+80+64+136 = 480
Required Difference = 800 – 480 = 320

A new international report has drawn attention to the deadly pollutants that pervade the air that people breathe in India, causing terrible illness and premature death. The State of Global Air 2017 study, conducted jointly by the Health Effects Institute and the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation, quantifiesfurther what has been reported for some time now: that the concentration of the most significant inhalable pollutant, fine particulate matter with a diameter of 2.5 micrometres or less (PM2.5), has been growing in India. The rise in average annual population-weighted PM2.5 levels indicates that the Centre’s initiatives to help States reduce the burning of agricultural biomass and coal in Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi have failed. The directions of the National Green Tribunal to Delhi, which were reviewed last year, could not end open burning of garbage and straw, or curb the urban use of diesel-powered vehicles. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that the weighted national PM2.5 level estimated in the international report rose from 60 micrograms per cubic metre in 1990 (the acceptable limit) to 74 in 2015, with a steady rise since 2011. Weak policy on pollution is leading to the premature death of an estimated 1.1 million Indians annually, and the number is growing, in contrast to China’s record of reducing such mortality.

Several studies show long-term evidence of a steady deterioration in air quality in many countries, and South Asia, dominated by India, is today among the worst places to live. Although the central role played by burning of crop residues in causing pollution is well-known, and the Indian Agricultural Research Institute proposed steps to convert the waste into useful products such as enriched fodder, biogas, biofuel, compost and so on, little progress has been made. Last year, helpless farmers in the northern States who wanted to quickly switch from rice to wheat burnt the waste in the fields, in some cases defying local prohibitory orders. The government has no one to blame but itself, since it has not been able to supply affordable seeder machinery in sufficient numbers to eliminate the need to remove the straw. In a country producing about 500 million tonnes of crop residues annually, the issue needs to be addressed in mission mode. Easy access to cheap solar cookers and biogas plants will also cut open burning, and help the rural economy. Yet, there is no reliable distribution mechanism for these. On the health front, it is a matter of concern that in the most polluted cities, even moderate physical activity could prove harmful, rather than be beneficial, as new research indicates. India’s clean-up priorities need to shift gear urgently, covering both farm and city.
