QUESTION: 1

### In a class average age of 24 boys and their teacher is 15 years. When the teacher's age is excluded the average age decreases by one year. The age of the teacher is?

Solution:

Sum of the ages of 24 boys and 1 teacher = (15 x 25) years = 375 years.

Age of the teacher = (375 − 336) years = 39 years.

QUESTION: 2

### The monthly income of P and Q are in ratio 2:3 and their monthly expenses are in ratio 5:9. If each of them save 300 per month, their monthly income is:

Solution:

Income of A = 2x
Income of B = 3x

Savings of A  =  300
Savings of B  =  300

Monthly expense are in ratio 5:9
(2x-300) / (3x-300) =  5/9
⇒ 18x - 2700 = 15x - 1500
⇒ 3x = 1200
⇒ x =  400

Therefore,
Income of A = 2x = 2 * 400 = 800
Income of B = 3x = 3 * 400 = 1200

Hence, son's age is 9 and father's age is 45.

and 2x + 4y = 140
⇒  x + 2y = 70 .... (ii)
Solving (i) and (ii) we get: x = 26, y = 22.
∴ The required answer = 26.
