The revenue of a company is directly proportional to the number of customers it serves, which in turn is directly proportional to the

(1) If the company spends $250,000 in marketing, it earns a revenue of ten million dollars
(2) The ratio of revenue of the company to the number of customers it serves is 4:1
A store stocks shirts, trousers and suits in the ratio of 4:5:6. If the store stocks only these 3 items, what is the number of items
stocked in the store?
(1) The number of suits is 100 more than the number of shirts stocked in the store
(2) The number of suits is 150 less than the number of shirts and trousers stocked in the store
A school library consists of literature books and science books in the ratio of 5:6. If 50 more literature books are added to the library and the number of science books is increased by 1/4^{th} of the existing science books, the ratio of the literature books and science books increases to 4:3. If the library consists of only literature and the science books, what is the initial number of books in the library?
Five friends Alastair, Bell, Cook, Darren and Eoin appeared in an aptitude test. Alastair scored exactly 1/2 of Darren’s score, whose
score was 1/5^{th} more than Cook’s score. Eoin scored 2/5^{th} more than Cook and Darren’s score was 3/2 times that of Bell’s score. If the average score (arithmetic mean) of the group was 50, what was the range of the scores of the group?
In triangle ABC, ∠ABC is 7/20 times less than ∠ACB, and ∠ACB is 2/3 times greater than ∠BAC. What is the measure of ∠BAC?
The students in a class were asked to vote for their favourite subject. W students voted for mathematics, X students voted for science, Y for history and Z for literature. The ratio of W to Y was 4:5, Z to W was 5:6 and X to Z was 13:10. If each student in the class voted for one of the four subjects above, what percent of the students in the class voted for mathematics?
2/5more water by weight is added to a saltsugarwater solution. Before the addition of the water, what is the ratio of the weight of the water to the weight of the solution?
A teacher took a preannounced test in a class 3/4^{th}. of the students had not prepared for the test. Of the students who had prepared for the test, 2/3^{rd} passed the test. If only 25 percent of the class passed the test, what fraction of the students who had not prepared for the test, failed the test?
In a developing country, the price of a stock is directly proportional to the reciprocal of the inflation in the country, which is in turn directly proportional to the local diesel prices. The price of the stock is 100 currency units when the inflation is 10 units and when the inflation is 12 units, the local price of the diesel is 60 currency units. By how many currency units should the local diesel price fall so that the price of the stock, which is currently at 200 currency units, increases by 25 percent?
