A water tank is 2/5 th full. Pipe A can fill a tank in 10 minutes and pipe B can empty in 6 minutes. If both the pipes are open, how long will it take to empty or fill the tank completely?
Since pipe B is faster than pipe A and thus, the tank will be emptied.
Part of the tank to be emptied = 2/5
Part emptied by (A+B) in 1 minute= (1/6 - 1/10) = 1/15.
⇒ 1/15 : 2/5 :: 1: x
⇒ 2/5 * 15 = 6 minutes
A can finish a work in 24 days, B in 9 days and C in 12 days. B and C start the work but are forced to leave after 3 days. The remaining work was done by A in?
From the given data, we can get
A's one day work = 1/24,
B's one day work = 1/9 and
Cs one day work = 1/12.
Since, B and C start the work and left after 3 days;
the work done by B and C is = 3 *((1/9) +(1/12)) = 7/12.
Therefore, remaining work = 1- 7/12 =5/12.
Time taken by A to complete the remaining work = 24 * 5/12 =10 days.
If a pipe A can fill a tank 3 times faster than pipe B. If both the pipes can fill the tank in 32 minutes, then the slower pipe alone will be able to fill the tank in?
Let, the time is taken by pipe A = x
Then, time is taken by pipe B = x/3
By substituting these values, we get: 1/x + 3/x = 1/32 x = 128 minutes
A alone can do a piece of work in 6 days and B alone in 8 days. A and B undertook to do it for Rs.3200. With the help of C, they completed the work in 3 days. How much is to be paid to C?
Work done by A in one day = 1/6.
Work done by B in one day = 1/8
Work done by C in one day = 1/3 - (1/6+1/8) = 1/3 -7/24 = (8-7)/24 = 1/24.
A's wage : B's wage : C's wage = 1/6 : 1/8 : 1/24 = 4: 3: 1
Therefore, C's share = (1/8) * 3200 = Rs 400.
9 kids can finish a bit of work in 360 days. 18 men can finish the same work of piece in 72 days and 12 ladies can finish it in 162 days. In how long can 4 men, 12 ladies and 10 kids together finish the bit of work?
9×360 children = 18×72 men = 12×162 women
⇒ 45 children = 18 men
= 27 women
⇒ 5 children = 2 men = 3 women
Now, 4 men + 12 women + 10 children
= 4 men + 8 men + 4 men
= 16 men
∵ 18 men can complete the work in 72 days.
∴ 16 men can complete the work in =18×72/16 = 81 days
A works twice as fast as B. If two can together complete a bit of work in 12 days, then B alone can do it in:
Let B's 1 day work =x.
Then , A's 1 day's work=2x
B's 1 day work=1/36.
Hence B alone can finish the work in 36 days.
A boat sails 6 km/hr in still water, however it takes thrice as much time in going the same at distance against the current when compared to the direction of the current. Find the speed of the current?
Speed of the boat in still water = 6 km/hr.
Speed of boat in downstream = 3 * speed of boat in upstream.
Let the speed of the current be 'x' km/hr.
Therefore, speed of the boat in upstream (i.e against the current) = (6-x) km/hr.
Speed of the boat in downstream (i.e in the direction of current) = (6+x) km/hr
Now, substituting values in given condition, we get
⇒ (6+x) = 3 * (6-x)
⇒ 6+x = 18-3x
⇒ x=3 km/hr
Thus, speed of the current = 3 km/hr.
Tina goes to school from her house at a speed of 3 km/hr and returns at a speed of 2 km/hr. If she takes 5 hours in total, then what is the distance between her house and school?
Let the distance between Tina's house and school be 'x' km.
Therefore, time to cover the distance from her house to school = (Distance/ speed) = (x/3) hours.
Similarly, time to cover the distance from her school to house = (x/2) hours.
It is given that total time taken for whole journey= 5 hours.
Thus, (x/3 + x/2)= 5
⇒ ((2x+3x)/6)= 5
⇒ (5x/6) = 5
⇒ 5x=30 or x=6
Thus, distance between her house and school is 6 km
Amit can row 8 km/hr in still water. If the river is flowing at 4 km/hr, it takes 1.5 hours to row to a place and back. How far is the place?
It is given that: Speed in still water = 8 km/hr
Speed of the stream = 4 km/hr
Speed of upstream = (8-4) = 4 km/hr
Speed of downstream = (8+4) = 12 km/hr
Total time = 1.5 hrs
Let x is the distance.
Then substituting the values, we get
x/12 + x/4 = 3/2
x = 4.5 km
A man covers a distance via auto driving at 70 km/hr and returns back to the beginning point riding on a bike at 55km/hr. What is his average speed for the entire trip?
Average speed = 2xy/(x + y) km/hr
= (2 x 70 x 55)/ (70 + 55) km/hr
= (2 x 70 x 55)/125 km/hr
= 308/5 km/hr
= 61.6 km/hr
The ratio between the speeds of two trains is 7 : 8. If the second train runs 400 kms in 4 hours, then the speed of the first train is :
Let the speed of two trains be 7x Kmph and 8x kmph (speed of second train)
Then, 8x = 400 kms/4hrs = 100kmph
Therefore, speed of first train = 7x = (8/7) * 100
Speed of first train = 87.5 kmph
A truck covers a distance of 550 meters in 1 minute whereas a bus covers a distance of 33 kms in 45 minutes. The ratio of their speeds is:
Ratio of speeds = (550 m/60s * 18/5) : (60 * 33/45) = 33: 44 = 3: 4
How long will a boy take to run round a square field of side 35 metres, if he runs at the rate of 9 km/hr ?
Speed = 9km/hr = ( 9 * 5/18)m/sec = 5/2 m/sec
Total Distance = Perimeter of Square
4 * side of the square = 35 *4 = 140 m
Therefore, time taken = Distance /Speed = 140/(5/2) = 140* 2/5 = 28 *2 = 56sec
Two, trains, one from Mumbai to New Delhi and the other from New Delhi to Mumbai, start simultaneously. After they meet, the trains reach their destinations after 9 hours and 16 hours respectively. What is the ratio of their speed?
Standard Formula: If two objects A and B begin their journey at the same time from two points P and Q towards each other and after crossing each other they take a and b hours in reaching Q and P respectively, then
A's Speed Vb
B's Speed Va
By looking at the above problem, we can say that, a=9 hours, b=16 hours.
Therefore, Ratio of speeds of two trains = V16/V9 = 4/3 or 4:3
Two trains of lengths 150 m and 180 m respectively are running in opposite directions on parallel tracks. If their speed is 50 km/hour and 58 km/hour respectively. In how much time will they cross each other?
Standard Formula: Suppose A and B are two objects with lengths L1 and L2 respectively, and their speeds are S1 and S2 respectively and moving in opposite direction, then
Crossing Time(Ct) = Length of the objects/ Relative speed of the object(s)
Thus, Ct= (L1+L2)/(S1 +S2)
By looking at the above problem, we can say that,
L1 = 150 m,
L2 = 180 m,
S1 = 50 km/hr
S2 = 58 km/hr
Relative speed= (S1+S2)= 108 km/hr or (108 * 5/18) m/s = 30 m/s.
Therefore, crossing time Ct= (L1+L2)/ Relative speed
Ct= (150 m+180 m)/ 30 m/s
Ct= 330 m / 30 m/s = 11 seconds
A zoo consists of only Tigers and Lions. The number of tigers in a zoo is three times the number of lions. Which one of the following numbers cannot represent the total number of animals in the zoo?
Let the number of lions = x
We know that the number of tigers in a zoo is three times the number of lions. Hence, the number of tigers = 3x.
Then, x + 3x = 4x = total number of animals.
Thus the total number of animals is a number that must be divisible by 4.
Here, 42 is the only number which is not divisible by 4.
Present ages of Sameer and Anand are in the ratio of 5:4 respectively. Three years hence, the ratio to their ages will become 11:9 respectively. What is Anand's present age in years ?
Let the present ages of Sameer and Anand be 5x years and 4x years respectively.
Then (5x +3)/(4x+3)= 11/9
By solving the equation, we get x=6.
Therefore, Anand's present age= 4x= 24.
A mixture of 150 liters of wine and water contains 20% water. How much more water should be added so that water becomes 25% of the new mixture?
Number of liters of water in150 liters of the mixture = 20% of 150 = 20/100 * 150 = 30 liters. P liters of water added to the mixture to make water 25% of the new mixture.
Total amount of water becomes (30 + P) and total volume of mixture is (150 + P).
(30 + P) = 25/100 * (150 + P)
120 + 4P = 150 + P
⇒ P = 10 liters.
In what ratio should two varieties of sugar of Rs.18 per kg and Rs.24 kg be mixed together to get a mixture whose cost is Rs.20 per kg?
By mistake, instead of dividing Rs. 117 among A, B and C in the ratio 1/2,1/3,1/4 it was divided in the ratio of 2:3:4. Who gains the most and by how much?
Original ratio of A, B, and C = 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4 = 6: 4: 3 Share of A = 6/13 * 117 = Rs. 54 Share of B = 4/13 * 117 = Rs. 36 Share of C = 3/13 * 117 = Rs. 27
The ratio of A, B, and C by mistake = 2 : 3 : 4 Share of A = 2/9 *117 = Rs.26 Share of B = 3/9 *117 = Rs.39 Share of C = 13 * 4 = Rs.52
Therefore, it is clear from the above calculation that C gains maximum i.e. 52 - 27 = Rs. 25
The wages of Santhosh and Revathi are in the ratio ratio 6:5. If the wages of each is increased by Rs.6000, the new ratio becomes 38:35. What is Revathi' s present salary?
Let the original salary of Santhosh and Revathi be 6x and 5x respectively Then, (6x+6000) / (5x+6000) = 38/35 35(6x+6000) = 38(5x +6000)
210x +210000 = 190x + 228000 210x - 190x = 228000 - 210000 20x= 18000 X = 900
Revathi's present salary = 5x = 5*900 = Rs. 4500
The cost price of 2 shirts and 3 jeans is Rs. 2200 and the cost price of 2 jeans and 4 shirts is Rs. 2400. Find the ratio between the cost price of the jeans and the shirt.
Let the cost price of one shirt be x and cost price of one jean be y.
2x + 3y = 2200 ...(i)
2y + 4x = 2400 or 2x + y = 1200 ...(ii)
By solving the equation (i) and (ii),
x = Rs.350; y = Rs. 500
Therefore the required ratio = 500 : 350 = 10 : 7
wo numbers are in the ratio 7:9. If 12 is subtracted from each of them, the ratio becomes 3:5. The product of the numbers is.
Given, ratio of two numbers = 7: 9 Let two numbers be 7x and 9x
If 12 is subtracted from each number, then new numbers are (7x -12) and (9x - 12)
It is given that (7x-12)/(9x-12) = 3/5
⇒ 5(7x - 12) = 3(9x - 12)
⇒ 35x - 60 = 27x - 36
⇒ 8x = 24 or x = 3
Product of the numbers = 7x * 9x = 7(3) * 9(3)
= 21 * 27 = 567
If the length and breadth of a rectangle decrease by 10% each, then by what percent does the area decrease?
Let the length and breadth of the rectangle be x and y units respectively
Original area= xy units2
New area= (0.9x) x (0.9y) =0.81xy units2
Percentage decrease in area= (0 .81xy- xy/xy) x 100= -19% (Negative sign indicates decrease in area)
A shopkeeper sells an article at 12.5% loss. If he sells it for Rs. 92.50 more, then he gains 6%. What is the cost price of the article ?
Selling Price (S.P.) = Rs100 - Rs12.5 = Rs. 87.5
S.P. after 6% gain = Rs106 Difference = Rs.18.5
Therefore, Cost Price (C.P.) = (92.5/18.5) x 100 = Rs.500
A milkman sells milk at the rate of Rs 50 per liter. The milk sold contains 25% water. Assuming that the cost of the milk is Rs. 40 per liter, what is the profit per liter made by the milkman?
Milk contains 25% water and 75% milk.
Therefore, 1 liter milk contains only 750 ml of milk.
Cost of 750 ml milk = 40 * (750/1000) = 40 * 3/4 = Rs. 30
Since, 750 ml of milk is diluted to one liter and sold at the rate of Rs. 50 per liter.
Selling price of 1 Liter milk = Rs. 50.
Profit per liter = Rs. 50 - Rs. 30 = Rs. 20.
Ramesh sold an article for Rs. 6,750 after giving a discount of 10% on the labeled price. He would have earned a profit of 50%, had there been no discount. What was the actual percentage of profit earned?
Let the marked price of the article be Rs. x Discount = 10%
Then, the selling price = - 10% of = (9x/10)
Now,= (9x/10)= 6750 Or x = Rs. 7,500
As per the question, if the selling price is Rs. 7,500,
then the profit earned by the Ramesh is 50%.
So, the cost price = Rs. 5,000
Therefore, the actual percentage of profit earned by selling the article for Rs. 6,750 = (Profit/CP) x 100 =(1750/5000)x 100 = 35%
Ramya and Sheela are partners in a business, Ramya invests Rs, 35,000 for 8 months and Sheela invests Rs. 42,000 for 10 months. Out of a profit of Rs. 31,570, What is Ramya's share ?
Since, Ramya invested for 8 months and Sheela invested for 10 months, Ratio of their shares = (35000 * 8 ) : (42000 * 10) = 2 : 3.
Ramya's share Rs. 31570 * (2 / 5) = Rs. 12628.
A number is decreased by 10% and then increased by 10%. The number so obtained is 10 less than the original number. What was the original number ?
Let the original number be x.
If number is decreased by 10% and then increased by 10%, then Final number obtained = 110% of (90% of x)
= (110/100 * 90/100 * x)
By the given data, number so obtained is 10 less than the original number,
Therefore x- (99/100)x=10 or x =1000
By selling a pen at a profit of 60% a man got Rs 38 more than one third of its cost price. What is the cost price of pen?
Let the cost price = x
Therefore selling price with 60% profit = 160/100 x =8/5 x
It is given that selling price is 38 more than one-third of cost price
(8/5) * x = x/3 + 38 (8/5 - 1/3) * x = 38 ((24 - 5)/15) * x = 38 x = 38 * 15/19 x = 30
Therefore, cost price = Rs 30
