Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 5

O is the center of circle and ∠QPS = 65°. Find the value of ∠A and ∠B respectively. Detailed Solution for Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 5

We know that angle subtended by any two points from the circumference of the circle on the center is twice the angle subtended by those two points on any other part of the circle, so,
Points Q and S subtend an angle of 65° on the circumference so they subtend 65° × 2 = 130°.
Now, ∠ SOQ(outer) = 360° - 130° = 230°
Now similar to the previous part, ∠ SOQ(outer) is twice of angle B, so ∠ B = 230°/2 = 115°

Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 6

Find the third vertex of a triangle, if two of its vertices are at (2, 3) and (4, -2) and the centroid is at (1, 1).

Detailed Solution for Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 6

Centroid of a triangle = [(x1 + x2 + x3)/3 , (y1 + y2 + y3)/3] where (x, y1), (x2, y2) and (x3, y3) are co-ordinates of vertices of triangle
Given, two of its vertices are at (2, 3) and (4, -2) and the centroid is at (1, 1)
Let the coordinate of third vertices be (x, y)
∴ 1 = (2 + 4 + x)/3
⇒ x = - 3
And,
1 = (3 - 2 + y)/3
⇒ y = 2
So third coordinate is (-3, 2)

Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 7

The side AC of the ΔABC is produced to D, such that CD = CB. If ∠ACB = 70°, then the value of ∠ADB is

Detailed Solution for Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 7 Now we see that Δ ADB is isosceles as CD = CB and the sum of ∠ CBD and ∠ CDB is 70° (exterior angle property of a triangle). So,
∠CBD = ∠CDB    (isosceles triangle)
∠CBD + ∠CDB = 70°
⇒ 2 × ∠CDB = 70°
⇒ ∠ CDB = 35°

Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 8

If x + (1/x) = 6, then find value of Detailed Solution for Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 8

We have,
x + (1/x) = 6
on squaring both side
⇒x+ 1/x2 = 36 – 2 = 34 Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 9

The angles of depression of the top and bottom of a 50 m high electric pole form the top of a building are 30° and 60° respectively. Find the height of the building. Detailed Solution for Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 9 According to the figure,
DE is the electric pole (height = 50m), AB is the building.
∠ADC = 30° & ∠AEB = 60°
We have to find out the length of AB.
As, DC ⊥ AB & EB ⊥ AB so, DC || EB
⇒ DE = BC
Also, DE || AB so, DC = EB
Now, AD × cos30° = DC & AE × cos 60° = BE
⇒ AD × cos30° = AE × cos 60°
From the figure, AB = AC + BC
⇒ AB = AC + DE [As, DE = BC]
⇒ AE × sin 60° = AD × sin 30° + 50
⇒ √3 ×AD × sin 60° = AD × sin 30° + 50
Now, AB = AD × sin 30° + 50
⇒ AB = 25 + 50 = 75 meter.
The height of the building = 75 meter

Cot63° = tan(90° - 63°)
Cot63° = tan27°
And cot81° = tan9°
cot9° cot27° cot63° cot 81°
= cot9° cot27° tan27° tan9°
We know that tanθcotθ = 1
= 1

Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 12

If then a2 – bis equal to

Detailed Solution for Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 12

Formulas :- Given the equation  Since we know a+ b3 + 3ab (a + b) = (a + b)3
⇒ (x + 1/x)3 = (2a)3
⇒ x + 1/x = 2a
Similarly, subtracting both the equation: Since we know a- b3 - 3ab (a - b) = (a - b)3
⇒ (x - 1/x)3 = (-2b)3
⇒ x - 1/x = -2b
⇒ x + 1/x + x – 1/x = 2a – 2b
⇒ 2x = 2a – 2b
⇒ x = a – b
Similarly, subtracting both the resultant equation,
⇒ x + 1/x - x + 1/x = 2a + 2b
⇒ 2/x = 2a + 2b
⇒ 1/x = a + b
Multiplying both the final equation:
⇒ (a + b)(a - b) = x × 1/x = 1
⇒ a2 – b2 = 1

Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 13

ABC is an equilateral triangle with side 2 cm. With A, B and C as centres and radius 1 cm three arcs are drawn. The area of the region with in the triangle bounded by three arcs is

Detailed Solution for Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 13 ABC is an equilateral triangle
Given,
AB = BC = CA = 2 cm
∠A = ∠B = ∠C = 60°
Height of equilateral triangle = (√3/2) × (side)
= (√3/2) × 2 = √3 cm
∴ Area of the triangle = (1/2) × √3 × 2 = √3 cm2
Area inside the triangle inscribed by three arcs = 3 × area of one arc
= 3 × (θ/360°) × πr2
= 3 × π × 12 × (60/360) = π/2
∴ Required area = (√3 - π/2) cm2

Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 14

ABCD is a parallelogram in which diagonals AC and BD intersect at O. If E, F, G and H are the mid points of AO, DO, CO and BO respectively, then the ratio of the perimeter of the quadrilateral EFGH to the perimeter of parallelogram ABCD is

Detailed Solution for Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 14 In Δ OAB,
Mid- point of OA = E
Mid- point of OB = H
Therefore,
EH|| AB
Therefore,
HE = AB/2
Similarly,
HG = BC/2
FG = CD/2
EF + HG + FG + EF = (1/2)(AB + BC + CD + AD)
⇒ Perimeter of EFGH = (1/2) perimeter of ABCD
So,
The ratio of the perimeter of the quadrilateral EFGH to the perimeter of parallelogram ABCD = 1:2

A can do a piece of work in 18 days, B in 36 days and C in 72 days. All begin to do it together but A leaves after 8 days and B leaves 7 days before the completion of the work. The total number of days they worked for is

Detailed Solution for Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 16

Given,
A can do a piece of work in 18 days
∴ Part of work done by A in 1 day = 1/18
B can do a piece of work in 36days
∴ Part of work done by B in 1 day = 1/36
C can do a piece of work in 72 days
∴ Part of work done by C in 1 day = 1/72
Let,
Total number of days they work = x days
Number of days A work = 8 days
∵ B leaves7 days before the completion of the work
Number of days B work = (x – 7) days
And, Number of days C work= x days
∴ {(1/18) × 8 } + {(1/36) × (x – 7)} + {(1/72) × x} = 1
⇒ 4/9 + (x – 7)/36 + x/72 = 1
⇒ (32 + 2x -14 + x)/72 = 1
⇒ 18 + 3x = 72
⇒ 3x = 54
⇒ x = 18 days

Detailed Solution for Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 17

Let speed of A be a kmph and speed of B be b kmph
Then we have
⇒ a + b = 60/6
⇒ a + b = 10
or 2a + 2b = 20------
also,
⇒ 2/3a + 2b = 60/5 = 12--------------
⇒ (4/3)a = 8
a = 6 kmph

A container contains mixture of milk and water in the ratio of 4 : 7. 8 litres of this mixture is replaced by water. The new ratio of milk and water becomes 4 : 9. Find the initial quantity of water in the mixture.

Detailed Solution for Quantitative Aptitude - Test 6 - Question 18

Given, container contains mixture of milk and water in the ratio of 4 : 7.
Let the volume of milk and water be 4a and 7a.
Now, 8 litres are removed and replaced by water.
In 1 litre of mixture has 4/11 litres of milk and 7/11 litres of water are present.
Thus in 8 litres 32/11 and 56/11 litres of milk and water are present.
∴ Volume of milk = 4a – 32/11
Volume of water = 7a – 56/11 + 8
New ratio = 4 : 9 ⇒ a = 52/11
Now, initial amount of water = 7a = 364/11
