Solution:

Let the three integers be: xx + 2 and x + 4.

► x = 11.

Third integer = x + 4 = 15.

QUESTION: 3

### The product of two numbers is 2.0016. If one of them is 0.72, find the other number.

Solution:

Product of two numbers = 2.0016
One number = 0.72
Other number = (2.0016 ÷ 0.72) Hence, the required number = 2.78

QUESTION: 4

The price of commodity X increases by 40 paise every year, while the price of commodity Y increases by 15 paise every year. If in 2001, the price of commodity X was Rs. 4.20 and that of Y was Rs. 6.30, in which year commodity X will cost 40 paise more than the commodity Y ?

Solution:

Suppose commodity X will cost 40 paise more than Y after Z  years. Then,

► (4.20 + 0.40Z) - (6.30 + 0.15Z) = 0.40
► 0.25Z = 0.40 + 2.10
► Z = (2.50 / 0.25) = 10

∴ X will cost 40 paise more than Y 10 years after 2001 i.e in 2011.

QUESTION: 12

There is a tree between houses of A and B. If the tree leans on A’s House, the tree top rests on his window which is 12 m from ground. If the tree leans on B’s House, the tree top rests on his window which is 9 m from ground. If the height of the tree is 15 m, what is distance between A’s and B’s house?

Solution: In ΔSTR, By Pythagoras theorem:
RT2 = ST2 + RS2

► ST2 = 152 - 92 = 144
► ST = 12m

In ΔTQP, By Pythagoras theorem:
PT2 = TQ2 + PQ2

► TQ2 = 152 - 122 = 81
► TQ = 9m

Distance between houses = SQ = ST + TQ = 12 + 9 = 21m

QUESTION: 13
