QUESTION: 1

If sinθ + cosθ = √3 cos (90 - θ), then what is the value of tanθ?

Solution:

sinθ + cosθ = √3 cos (90 - θ)

sinθ + cosθ = √3 sinθ

cosθ = √3 sinθ - sinθ

cosθ = sinθ (√3 - 1)

∴ tanθ = 1/(√3 - 1) = (√3 + 1)/2

QUESTION: 2

If the difference between the compound interest and the simple interest on a sum of money is 0.0625 times of itself in 2 years. What is the rate of interest?

Solution:

The formula for CI at annual compound interest, including principal sum, is:

Here n = 1

0.0625P = P(1 + r/100)2 - P - (P × r × 2)/100

(1 + r/100)2 - r/50 = 1.0625

r = 25%

QUESTION: 5

Miss Agna lend an amount of Rs. 20,000 divided amongst two borrowers A and B at simple interest rate of 12% and 6% per annum respectively. If the total amount of simple interest earned in 2 years be Rs. 3840, how much amount was lend to A?

Solution:

Let the amount lend to A be Rs. α = principal amount for A

Amount lend to B = Rs. (20000 – α) = principal amount for B

We know that, Simple interest = (Principal × Rate × Time)/100

Simple interest for A = (α × 12 × 2)/100 = 0.24α

Simple interest for B = [(20000 – α) × 6 × 2]/100 = 2400 – 0.12α

Total interest = simple interest for A + simple interest for B

⇒ 3840 = 0.24α + 2400 – 0.12α

⇒ 0.12α = 3840 – 2400

⇒ α = 1440/0.12 = Rs. 12,000

∴ Amount lend to A = Rs. 12,000

QUESTION: 9

A company manufactured a pair of shoes for Rs. 2000 and sold it to a dealer at a profit of 12.5%. The dealer further sold it to a customer at Rs. 2700. What is the profit percentage of the dealer?

Solution:

Original price of shoes = Rs. 2000

Profit of company = 12.5%

⇒ Price for dealer = 2000 + 12.5% of 2000 = 2000 + 1/8 × 2000 = 2000 + 250 = Rs. 2250

But, selling price of dealer = Rs. 2700

⇒ Profit earned by dealer = 2700 - 2250 = Rs. 450

∴ Profit percentage of dealer = 450/2250 × 100 = 20%

QUESTION: 13

What least number must be subtracted from 1936 so that the resulting number when divided by 9, 10 and 15 will leave in case the same remainder 7?

Solution:

∵ The number should be divisible by 9, 10 and 15 leaving a remainder of 7 in each case.

Thus a remainder of 7 will be also obtained when it is divided by the LCM of 9, 10 and 15.

LCM of 9, 10 and 15 = 90

Dividing 1936 by 90 we get,

Quotient = 21

Remainder = 46

The remainder should be 7

Thus least number which should be subtracted from 1936 = 46 – 7 = 39.

QUESTION: 27

Pipe A can fill a tank in 12 hours and Pipe B can fill the tank in 18 hours. If both the pipes are opened on alternate hours and if pipe B is opened first, then in how much time (in hours) the tank will be full?

Solution:

1-hour Efficiency of pipe A: 1/12

1-hour Efficiency of pipe B: 1/18

If both opened together, work done in 2 hours: 1/18 + 1/12 = 5/36

After 14 hours, work done = 5 × 7/36 = 35/36.

Work left = 1 – 35/36 = 1/36. This work will be done by pipe B in h hours.

⇒ h/18 = 1/36

⇒ h = 1/2

Therefore, total time = 14.5 hours

A, B and C can do a job working alone in 6, 9 and 18 days respectively. They all work together for 1 day, then A and B quit. How many days C working alone will take to complete the remainder of the job?

Solution:

A’s 1 day work = 1/6

B’s 1 day work = 1/9

C’s 1 day work = 1/18

Let C alone worked for ‘x’ days

∵ A and B worked only for one day and C worked for (x + 1) days,

⇒ A’s 1 day work + B’s 1 day work + C’s (x + 1) days’ work = 1

⇒ 1/6 + 1/9 + (x + 1)/18 = 1

⇒ (x + 1)/18 = 13/18

⇒ x + 1 = 13

⇒ x = 13 – 1 = 12

∴ C worked alone for 12 days

95 - [144 ÷ (12 × 12) - (-4) - {3 – 17 - 10}]

Solution:

95 - [144 ÷ (12 × 12) - (-4) - {3 - 17 - 10}]

= 95 - [144 ÷ (12 × 12) - (-4) - {3 - 27}]

= 95 - [144 ÷ 144 - (-4) - {-24)]

= 95 - [1 - (-4) - (-24)]

= 95 - [1 + 4 + 24]

= 95 - 29

QUESTION: 70

The ratio of present ages of A and B is 2 : 3. If the age of B after 5 years will be 20 years, then what is the present age (in years) of A?

Solution:

Let present ages of A and B be 2k and 3k

Five years later the age of B will be 20 years

Then;

(3k + 5) = 20

→ 3k = 20 - 5

→ 3k = 15

→ k = 15/3

k = 5

Hence, present age of A is 2 × 5 = 10 years.

A man is running beside an 80 m long train at a speed of 9 km/hr in the same direction. If the train is running at a speed of 54 km/hr, in how much time will the train cross the running man?

Solution:

Speed of train relative to running man = speed of train – speed of running man

⇒ Speed of train relative to running = 54 – 9 = 45 km/hr = 45 × (5/18) = 12.5 m/sec

Distance to be covered = 80 m

∴ Time taken by train to cross the running man = 80/12.5 = 6.4 sec.

QUESTION: 79

Given f(x) = 5x3 + 14x2 – 10x + 9. Given the divisor is (x + 1), what should be added or subtracted from f(x) so as to make it exactly divisible by the divisor?

Solution:

Given, f(x) = 5x3 + 14x2 – 10x + 9 and g(x) = x + 1

Now, we know,

f(x) = g(x) × q(x) + r(x)

⇒ f(x) – r(x) = g(x) × q(x)

∴ Remainder r(x) should be subtracted from f(x) so that it is exactly divisible by g(x) by a factor of q(x).

Now we divide f(x) by g(x) to obtain r(x).

5x2 + 9x – 19

⇒         x + 1 )) 5x3 + 14x2 – 10x + 9

5x3 + 5x2

9x2 – 10x + 9

9x2 + 9x

– 19x + 9

– 19x – 19

+28

∴ r(x) = 28

∴ 28 should be subtracted from f(x).

Solution:

Given data-

4 bells ring at intervals of 30 minutes, 1 hour,  hour and 1 hour 45 minutes respectively

Converting them into fractions

30min = 1/2 hour

1 hour = 1/1 hour

Hour = 3/2 hour

1 hour 45 minutes = 7/4 hour

To find next simultaneous ring of 4 bells

Let’s find L.C.M. of these fractions:

L.C.M of fractions = (L.C.M of numerators)/(H.C.F of denominators)

⇒ LCM of fractions =

⇒ LCM of fractions = 21/1 = 21

∴ Bells will ring simultaneously after 21 hours.

Counting 21 hours after 12 noon.

They will ring on 9 am. On next day.

QUESTION: 89

In a certain code language, "ADD" is written as "8" and "SUB" is written as "41". How is "MUL" written in that code language?

Solution:

Here, if A is 1, B is 2, C is 3 and so on Z will be 26.

The code used here is one less than the total sum of the numbers which comes in place of each letter i.e.

ADD → A = 1, D = 4, D = 4 → (1 + 4 + 4) – 1 = 9 – 1 = 8

SUB → S = 19, U = 21, B = 2 → (19 + 21 + 2) – 1 = 42 – 1 = 41

Similarly,

MUL → M = 13, U = 21, L = 12 → (13 + 21 + 12) – 1 = 46 – 1 = 45

Thus, 45 is the correct alternative.
