QUESTION: 1

In drilling world’s deepest hole, it was found that the temperature T in degree Celsius, x km below the surface of Earth, was given by T = 30 + 25 (x – 3), 3 < x < 15. If the required temperature lies between 200^{o} C and 300^{o }C, then the depth, x will lie between

Solution:

T = 30 + 25 (x – 3), 3 < x < 15

It is given 200 < T < 300

200 < 30 + 25 (x – 3) < 300

170 < 25(x - 3) < 270

170/25 (x - 3) < 270/25

6.8 + 3 < x < 10.8 + 3

9.8 < x < 13.8

QUESTION: 2

A solution of 10% boric acid is to be diluted by adding a 4% boric acid solution to it. The resulting mixture is to be more than 5% but less than 8% boric acid. If we have 750 litres of the 10% solution, then the quantity of the 4% solution that has to be added will lie between

Solution:

Let x litres of 4% boric acid solution is required to be added

Then, total mixture = (x + 750)litres

This resulting mixture is to be more than 5% but less than 8% boric acid

Total amount of acid = 750 of 10% + x of 4%

ATQ

5/100(750 + x) < (750*10 + 4x)/100 < 8/100(750 + x)

3750 + 5x < 7500 + 4x ; 7500 + 4x < 6000 + 8x

x < 3750 ; x > 375

375 and 3750

QUESTION: 3

Pairs of consecutive even positive integers, both of which are larger than 7 such that their sum is less than 28, are

Solution:

Let x be the smaller of the two consecutive even positive integers .

Then the other integer is x+2.

Since both the integers are larger than 7,x > 7 ....(1)

Also the sum of the two integers is less than 28.

x + (x + 2) < 28

⇒ 2x + 2 < 28

⇒ 2x < 28 − 2

⇒ 2x < 26

=> x < 13…...(2)

From(1) and (2), we get

7 < x <13

Since x is an even number, x can take the values 8, 10 and 12.

Thus the required possible pairs are (8,10),(10,12) and (12,8).

QUESTION: 4

The longest side of a triangle is 4 times the shortest side and the third side is 4 cm shorter than the longest side. If the perimeter of the triangle is at least 59 cm, then the minimum length of the shortest side is

Solution:

QUESTION: 5

In an experiment a solution of hydrochloric acid is to be kept between 30 and 35 degree celcius. What is the range of temperature in degree Fahrenheit if conversion formula is given by ,where C and F represent temperature in degree celsius and degree fahrenheit, respectively?

Solution:

Temperature is defined as the degree of hotness.

Temperature is measured using different scales in different regions.

we know that

C = temperature in celcius.

F = temperature in Fahrenheit.

F= 9(C)/5 + 32

1) C = 30

F= 9(30)/5 + 32

F= 54 + 32 = 86F

2) C = 35

F= 9(35)/5 + 32

F= 63 + 32 = 95F

The range of temperatures in degree Fahrenheit is 86 F to 95 F.

QUESTION: 6

A man wants to cut three lengths from a single piece of board of length 91 cm. The second length is to be 6 cm longer than the shortest and the third length is to be thrice as long as the shortest. If the third piece is to be at least 4 cm longer than the second, then the length of the shortest board will lie between

Solution:

Let the length of the shortest piece, The length of the second price is (x+6)cm. The length of the third piece is 3x cm, Total length of the three prieces must be ≤91cm.

xcm+(x+6)cm+3xcm≤91cm

=>5x+6≤91

Subtracting 6 from number 5 on both sides, 5x/5≤85/5

x≤17----(1)

Step 2:

Also third piece is at least 4 cm longer than the second piece. therefore

3x≥(x+6)+4

=>3x≥x+10

Subtracting x from both sides,

3x−x≥10

x≥5 -----(2)

Step 3:

From (1) and (2)

5≤x≤17

QUESTION: 7

A plumber can be paid under two schemes as given below:

I: Rs 600 and Rs 50 per hour.

II: Rs 170 per hour.

If the job takes n hours, then the values of n for which the scheme I will give the plumber better wages are

Solution:

Your question is not complete it should be,

I: &600 fix and &50 per hourNow solving the question,Let the work is done in n hour as per given , So After n hour according to first scheme he will get an amount

= 600+50n After n hour according to second scheme he will get an amount,

=170nNow we are asked for values of n such that scheme

I give better wages so 600+50n >170n600>120nor n <5 .SO if the numbers of hour are less than 5 then he will get better wages by first scheme.

QUESTION: 8

In the first four examinations, each of 100 marks, Dipika got 94, 73, 72, 84 marks. If a final average greater than or equal to 80 and less than 90 is needed to obtain a final grade B in a course, then the range of marks, Dipika must score in the fifth examination in order to obtain grade B is

Solution:

QUESTION: 9

The cost and revenue functions of a product are given by C(x) = 2x + 400 and R(x) = 6x + 20 respectively, where x is the number of items produced by the manufacturer. The minimum number of items that the manufacturer must sell to realize some profit is

Solution:

Profit = revenue - cost

But given profit > 0

therefore R(x) - C(x) >0

therefore 4x - 380 >0

therefore 4x > 380

therefore x>95 manufacturer must sell 96 items.

QUESTION: 10

IQ of a person is given by the formula , where M A is mental age and CA is chronological age. If 85 __<__ IQ __<__ 145 for a group of 12-year children, then the mental age will lie between

Solution:

85≤MA/CA×100≤145

(85*12)/100≤MA/CA×100≤(145*12)/100

10.2≤MA≤17.4

range of mental age is[10.2,17.4].
