Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 1

### When one quantity is increased, the other quantity is also increased. This proportion is called .....................

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 1 It is called Direct proportion as it's one quantity is increased other also increases.
Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 2

### If y = x, then both are

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 2

Since y=x, if y increases , x also increases and if y decreases x also decreases. So they are directly related.

Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 3

### 72 books are packed in 4 cartons of the same size. How many cartons are required for 360 books?

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 3 Correct answer is 'C' because in each cartoon there are 18 books. If we divide 360 /18 than the answer is 20.
Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 4

36 men can complete a piece of work in 18 days. In how many days will 27 men complete the same work ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 4 36 men can complete a piece of work in 18 days. 1 Man can complete a piece of work in 36*18 27 men can complete a piece of work =36*18/27 =36*2/3 =12*2=24
Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 5

A garrison of 500 persons had provisions for 27 days. After 3 days a reinforcement of 300 persons arrived. For how many more days will the remaining food last now?

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 5

Let the remaining food last for x days
500 men had provision for = (27 - 3) = 24 days
(500 + 300) men had provision for x days
More men, Less days (Indirect proportion)
∴ 800 : 500 :: 24 : x
⇔ (800 × x) = (500 × 24)
⇔ x = (500 × 24)/800
⇔ x = 15

Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 6

12 men can dig 8 meters long trench in a day. How many men should be employed for digging 50 meter long trench of the same type in one day?

Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 7

In an army camp, there are 320 soldiers. They have sufficient food for 80 days. If after 20 days, 20 soldiers left the camp, for how many more days will the food last?

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 7

Food for 320 students= 80 days

20 students left the campus

Number of students = 320 - 20 = 300 students

Food will last for (80 - 20) = 60 days fpr 320 students

Food will last for X days for 300 students

⇒ X = (320 x 60)/300 = 64

Food for 300 students= 64 days

y = 56 parts of base.

Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 20

There are 100 students in a hostel. Food provision for them is for 20 days. How long will these provisions last, if 25 more students join the group?

Detailed Solution for Test: Direct And Inverse Proportions- 2 - Question 20

Number of person = 100, Number of days = 20, = 100 * 20
Number of person = 125  ( 25 student join), let Number of days = x = 125 * X
So, 100 * 20 = 125 * X
or 2000 = 125x
or, 125x =  2000

∴ X = 2000/125 = 16
Therefore, that the last provisions will 16 dyas.
