QUESTION: 18

A trader bought 10 kg of rice at Rs. 400 per kg. He sold half the quantity at 20% loss and remaining at 10% profit. What was his net profit or loss in percentage?

Solution:

Cost price of 10 kg of rice = Rs. 400 × 10 = Rs. 4000

Cost price of 5 kg of rice = Rs. 2000 and the cost price of the remaining 5 kg of rice = Rs. 2000

Also given that trader got 20% loss for half of the quantity

We know that loss% = (CP - SP)/CP × 100

⇒ 20 = (2000 - SP)/2000 × 100

⇒ 200000 - 40000 = 100SP

⇒ SP = Rs. 1600

∴ Loss for first half = 2000 - 1600 = Rs. 400

Also given that profit for second half is 10%

⇒ 10 = (SP - 2000)/2000 × 100

⇒ 100SP = 20000 + 200000

⇒ SP = 2200

∴ Profit for second half = 2200 - 2000 = Rs. 200

∴ Net there is a loss of Rs. 200

Final loss % = (net loss/total cost price × 100) = 200/4000 × 100 = 5%

A certain number men agreed to do a work in 20 days. 5 men did not come for work. Others completed the work in 40 days. Find the number of men who had agreed to do the work originally?

Solution:

Let the number of men who agreed to do the work in 20 days be x

⇒ work done by x men = 20x

Also given (x - 5) men will complete the work in 40 days

⇒ work done by (x - 5) men = 40(x - 5)

Since the work done by both are same

⇒ 20x = 40(x - 5)

⇒ 20x - 40x = - 200

⇒ x = 10

∴ No of men who had agreed to do the work originally = 10

QUESTION: 68

A bus runs at 50 kmph. If the speed is increased by 10 kmph, it will cover 20 km more in the same time. Find the actual distance covered?

Solution:

Let the distance covered by 50kmph be x km

Given that if the speed is increased by 10 kmph, then the distance covered is (x + 20) km

Also given that time is same for both the cases

⇒ x/50 = (x + 20)/60

⇒ 50x + 1000 = 60x

⇒ 1000 = 10x

⇒ x = 1000/10 = 100 km

∴ Actual distance covered = 100 km

QUESTION: 69

Solution:

⇒ (10 C 4) A (4 C 4) B 6

Considering the given information,

⇒ (10 × 4) + (4 × 4) – 6

⇒ 40 + 16 – 6

⇒ 50

Therefore value of (10 C 4) A (4 C 4) B 6 will be 50.

QUESTION: 73

The arithmetic mean of the marks scored by students of a class is 58. 20% of them secured a mean score of 60. The mean score of another 30% of the students was 40. The mean score of the remaining students is

Solution:

As per the given data,

Let the required mean score be x,

Then 20/100 × 60 + 30/100 × 40 + 50/100 × x = 58

⇒ 1200 + 1200 + 50x = 5800

⇒ 2400 + 50x = 5800

⇒ 50x = 5800 - 2400 = 3400

⇒ x = 3400/50 = 68

QUESTION: 74

An article was sold for Rs. 2100 at a profit of 25%. What is its cost price?

Solution:

Let the cost price be Rs. x

We know that profit % = (Selling price - cost price)/cost price × 100

⇒ 25 = (2100 - x)/x × 100

⇒ 25x + 100x = 210000

⇒ 125x = 210000

⇒ x = 1680

∴ Cost price x = Rs. 1,680

QUESTION: 79

If x + y = 19 and x – y = 7, then xy = ?

Solution:

From given data, we get

⇒ x + y = 19 - - - equation (1)

⇒ x - y = 7 - - - equation (2)

By adding equation (1) and equation (2), we get

⇒ 2x = 26

⇒ x = 13

Substitute x = 13 in equation (1), we get

⇒ 13 + y = 19

⇒ y = 6

∴ xy = 13 × 6 = 78

QUESTION: 80

A shop keeper purchase 10 kg of rice and 20 kg of sugar at Rs. 75 and Rs. 85 per kg respectively. On selling, he gained 20% on rice and 10% on sugar. What was the total sale price?

Solution:

From the given data,

Cost price of 10 kg of rice = 10 × 75 = Rs. 750

Cost price of 20 kg of sugar = 20 × 85 = Rs. 1700

Given that profit for rice is 20% and profit for sugar is 10%

We know that profit = Cost price × profit% /100 = 750 × 20/100 = Rs. 150

⇒ Selling Price of rice = cost price of rice + profit on rice = 150 + 750 = Rs. 900

Also for profit 10% for sugar

⇒ Profit on sugar = 1700 × 10/100 = Rs. 170

⇒ Selling Price of sugar = Cost price of sugar + profit on sugar = 1700 + 170 = Rs. 1870

∴ Total sale = SP of rice + SP of sugar = 900 + 1870 = Rs. 2770

QUESTION: 90

The sum of two positive integers is 34 and their difference is 8. Find their product.

Solution:

Let the two positive numbers be x and y

From the given data,

⇒ x + y = 34 - - - - equation (1)

⇒ x - y = 8 - - - equation (2)

By adding equation (1) and equation (2), we get

⇒ 2x = 42

⇒ x = 42/2 = 21

Substitute x = 21 in equation (1)

⇒ x + y = 34

⇒ 21 + y = 34

⇒ y = 34 – 21 = 13

∴ Their product = xy = 21 × 13 = 273
