QUESTION: 55

Raja and Kundan together can build a wall in 20 days, Kundan and Mahesh can build the same wall in 30 days and Mahesh and Raja can build the same wall in 24 days. In how many days can all three of them complete the same wall while working together?

Solution:

Work done by Raja and kundan in one day = (1/R) + (1/K) = 1/20

Work done by Mahesh and kundan in one day = (1/M) + (1/K) = 1/30

Work done by Raja and Mahesh in one day = (1/R) + (1/M) = 1/24

Adding the above three equations we get,

⇒ 2{(1/R) + (1/K) + (1/M)} = (1/20) + (1/30) + (1/24) = 15/120 = 1/8

⇒ (1/R) + (1/K) + (1/M) = 1/16

Work done by Raja, kundan and Mahesh in one day = (1/R) + (1/K) + (1/M) = 1/16

∴ They will complete the wall in 16 days while working together

QUESTION: 60

The speed of a train relative to a moving car is 70km/hr more. The car accelerates and starts moving at a speed 10% more than before. Both now travel for 3 hours and the train covers a total distance of 750 km. How much distance did the car travel?

Solution:

The train covers 750 km in three hours.

The speed of train = 750/3 = 250 km/hr

Initially the train had a relative speed of 70km/hr to the car.

Initial speed of car = 250 – 70 = 180 km/hr

The speed of car now is increased by 10%.

New speed of car = 180 + 18 = 198km/hr

At this speed the car travels for 3 hrs.

∴ The distance travelled by car = 198 × 3 = 594km

QUESTION: 61

J, K and L started a business. Twice the investment of J is equal to five times the investment of K, and the investment of K is twice the investment of L. Find the share of J in a profit of Rs. 16800?

Solution:

Let J’s investment be = X

Let K’s investment be = Y

Let L’s investment be = Z

According to the problem,

⇒ 2X = 5Y

⇒ Y = 2X/5 ---- (1)

According to the problem,

⇒ Y = 2Z ---- (2)

From (1) and (2) we get,

⇒ 2Z = 2X/5

⇒ Z = X/5 ---- (3)

∴ Ratio of investment of J, K and L

⇒ X : 2X/5 : X/5 = 5 : 2 : 1

∴ J’s share in this profit, = 16800 × (5/8) = 10500

Solution:

⇒ Let the monthly salaries of A and B be 8x and 9x respectively

⇒ after increment new salary of A and B be (8x + 4000) and (9x + 4000) respectively

⇒ According to question

⇒ (8x + 4000) / (9x + 4000) = 10 / 11

⇒ 11 ⨯ (8x + 4000) = 10 ⨯ (9x + 4000)

⇒ 88x + 44000 = 90x + 40000

⇒ 2x = 4000

⇒ x = Rs. 2000

∴ New salary of A = 8× 2000 + 4000 = Rs. 20000

Let Mohit’s original salary be 100

Rahul’s original salary (being 40% more than Mohit’s salary) = 100 + (40% of 100) = 100 + 40 = 140

If Rahul’s salary is now increased by 60%, then Rahul’s new salary = 140 + (60% of 140) = 140 + 84 = 224

If Mohit’s salary is decreased by 20%, then Mohit’s new salary = 100 - (20% of 140) = 100 - 20 = 80

To find Rahul’s salary is how much percentage of Mohit’s salary

⇒ 224 = ? % of 80

⇒ ? = (224/80) × 100% = 2.8 × 100% = 280%

∴ Required Percentage = 280%

QUESTION: 64

The speed of the boat in still water is 18 km/hr and the speed of the current is 2 km/hr. If A man rows his boat upstream for 3 hours and downstream for 2 hours. Find the total distance travelled by him?

Solution:

Let speed of boat in still water is S_{B} and speed of current is S_{C }and Speed of boat in upstream and downstream is S_{U} and S_{D}.

Speed of boat in still water S_{B }= 18 km/hr

Speed of current, S_{C }= 2 km/hr

Speed of boat in upstream, S_{U }= 18 - 2 = 16 km/hr

Speed of boat in downstream, S_{D }= 18 + 2 = 20 km/hr

∴ Total distance travelled = 3 × 16 + 2 × 20 = 48 + 40 = 88 km

QUESTION: 66

Evaluate (3 × 25 ) ÷ 5 - 20 × 4 + 75

Solution:

Simple multiplication 3 × 25 = 75. Bracket takes priority over division, multiplication, addition or subtraction.

Hence, (3 × 25 ) ÷ 5 - 20 × 4 + 75 = 75 ÷ 5 - 20 × 4 + 75 = 15 - 20 × 4 + 75.

Multiplication takes priority over addition or subtraction.

Hence, 15 - 20 × 4 + 75 = 15 - 80 + 75.

Addition takes priority over subtraction.

Hence, 15 - 80 + 75 = 90 - 80 = 10

QUESTION: 67

If 347P is divisible by 9, then what is the value of P?

Solution:

We know that if the sum of digits in a number is divisible by 9 then the number is divisible by 9.

It would be unfair to put equal restraints on the third world and the first world countries in order to stop pollution.

Q. Which of the following statements can be inferred from the above passage?

Solution:

**The correct answer is option 1. There should be different restraints on the first world and the third world countries to reduce air pollution.**

From the passage, we can conclude that the world is facing serious problems due to air pollution, so we need to control it but same restraints cannot be placed on the first world and the third world countries as it would be unfair to the third world countries. It can be said that there is a need to put different restraints on the third world and the first world countries so as to be fair and to reduce the pollution.Hence, option 1 is the correct solution.

QUESTION: 79

Rs. 1000 is lent at a 4% p.a. for 1 year at simple interest. If at the end of the first year, the whole amount is lent at compound interest for 2 years, find the total interest (approx.) incurred in these years.

Solution:

Amount at the end of first year = P + PRT/100 = 1000 + (1000 × 1 × 4)/100 = Rs. 1040

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

Where:

CI = Compound Interest

P = the principal investment amount (the initial deposit or loan amount)

r = the annual interest rate (decimal)

t = the number of years the money is invested or borrowed

CI = 1040(1 + 4/100)^{2} - 1040

CI = Rs. 84.864

Total interest = 84.864 + 40 = Rs. 124.864 ≈ Rs. 125
