QUESTION: 6

If income of R is 30% more than the income of Q and the income of Q is 20% more than the income of P, then the income of R is how much percent more than the income of P?

Solution:

Let income of P be x

The income of Q is 20% more than P

So income of Q = x + 20x/100 = 1.2x

The income of R is 30% more than Q.

So income of R = 1.2x + (30 × 1.2x)/100 = 1.56x

% difference in incomes of R and P = [(Income of R - Income of P)/Income of P] × 100%

= [(1.56x - x)/x] × 100% = 56%

QUESTION: 21

What least number must be added to 41116, so that the sum is completely divisible by 8?

What is the difference (in Rs) between the compound interest (compounded annually) and simple interest for 3 years on a principal of Rs 2500 at the rate of 30% per annum?

Solution:

Given, Principal = Rs. 2500, Rate = 30%, Time = 3 years

When the interest is compounded annually,

Compound interest = Principal × [(1 + Rate/100)Time - 1]

⇒ Compound interest = 2500 × [(1 + 30/100)3 - 1] = 2500 × 1.197 = Rs. 2992.5

Simple interest = (Principal × Rate × Time)/100

⇒ Simple interest = (2500 × 30 × 3)/100 = Rs. 2250

∴ Required difference = 2992.5 - 2250 = Rs. 742.5

Equation will become, 25 × 6 ÷ 2 + 5 - 3 ÷ 5 × 5 = 77

2. Interchanging +, ÷ and 2, 3

Equation will become, 25 + 6 × 3 - 2 ÷ 5 × 12 ÷ 3 = 41.4 ≠ 68

3. Interchanging ×, ÷ and 12, 3

Equation will become, 25 × 6 ÷ 2 - 3 + 5 × 3 ÷ 12 = 77.25 ≠ 68

4. Interchanging ×, - and 2, 3

Equation will become, 25 ÷ 6 - 3 × 2 + 5 × 12 ÷ 3 = 18 ≠ 68

Hence, by interchanging ×, ÷ and 5, - 3

We get correct answer.

Find the value of ‘x’ in the following question?
(2)4x + 3 × (2)3x – 5 = 4096

Solution:

Laws of Indices:

1. am × a= a{m + n}

2. a÷ a= a{m - n}

3. (am )= amn

4. (a)-m = 1/am

5. (a)m/n = n√am

6. (a)= 1

(2)4x + 3 × (2)3x – 5 = 4096

⇒ (2)4x + 3 × (2)3x – 5 = (2)12

⇒ (2){4x + 3 + 3x – 5} = (2)12

⇒ (2)7x – 2 = (2)12

⇒ 7x – 2 = 12

⇒ x = 14/7 = 2

∴ x = 2

QUESTION: 56

A shopkeeper buys a fan for Rs 14500. For how much should he sell (in Rs) it to gain a profit of 10%?

Solution:

Cost price = C.P = Rs. 14500

profit % = (profit/C.P) × 100

⇒ 10 = (profit/14500) × 100

Profit = (10 × 14500)/100 = 1450

Profit = S.P - C.P

S.P = sell price

⇒ S.P = profit + C.P = 1450 + 14500 = Rs. 15950

Shortcut method:

Profit = 10%

Selling price = (1 + profit percent/100) × cost price

An article is sold at a loss of 20%. If the selling price is doubled, then what will be the profit percentage?

Solution:

Let the cost price of article be x.

Loss % = 20%

Then, SP = CP - Loss

Loss = 20% of x = 0.2x

⇒ SP = x - 0.2x = 0.8x

If the selling price is doubled,

SP = 2 × 0.8x = 1.6x

Profit = SP - CP = 1.6x - x = 0.6x

Profit % = (Profit × 100)/CP

Profit % = (0.6x × 100)/x = 60%
