Given:

Rs. 305 in the denomination of 25 paise, 10 paise and 50 paise coins

The coins are in the ratio of 4 : 5 : 7

Calculation:

Let the number of coins of 25 paise, 10 paise and 50 paise be 4x, 5x, and 7x respectively

⇒ Total money = (4x × 25) + ( 5x × 10) + (7x × 50)

⇒ 100x + 50x + 350x = 305 × 100 paise

⇒ 500x = 30500

⇒ x = 61

⇒ Number of coins of 25 paise = 61 × 4 = 244

⇒ Number of coins of 10 paise = 61 × 5 = 305

⇒ Number of coins of 50 paise = 61 × 7 = 427

∴ The number of coins of 25 paise, 10 paise and 50 paise is 244, 305 and 427.

A’s one - hour work

B can complete the work in  hours

B’s one - hour work

Let the total time taken by A and B to complete the work be  hours

A and B‘s one - hour work

The total time is taken by A and B to complete the work is  hours and minutes

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 6 - Question 58

A can complete a work in 12 days and B can do the same work in 21 days. In how many days they complete the work working together?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 6 - Question 58

Total work = L.C.M. of (12, 21) = 84 units

Efficiency of A = 84/12 = 7 units/day

Efficiency of B = 84/21 = 4 units/day

Combined efficiency of A and B = (7 + 4) = 11 units/day

Time taken by A and B working together = 84/11 days

∴ The time taken by A and B working together is 84/11 days.

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 6 - Question 59

If the ratio of A ∶ B is 3 ∶ 6 and ratio of B ∶ C is 7 ∶ 28, then find the ratio of A ∶ B ∶ C.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 6 - Question 59

Given:

A : B = 3 : 6 = 1 : 2         ----(i)

B : C = 7 : 28 = 1 : 4      ----(ii)

We know that:

If P ∶ Q and Q ∶ R are given, then P ∶ Q ∶ R is given by:

To equate the value of B in both equation we will multiply equation (ii) by 2 so we get,

A : B = 1 : 2

B : C = 2 : 8

A : B : C = 1 × 2 : 2 × 2 : 2 × 8

⇒ A : B : C = 2 : 4 : 16 = 1 : 2 : 8

∴ A : B : C = 1 : 2 : 8

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 6 - Question 60

An amount of Rs. 174 is divided into p, q, and r in such a way that p receives Rs. 16 more than q and q receives Rs. 8 more than r. What is the ratio of their shares?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 6 - Question 60

Given:

Total sum is 174.

According to the question,

p = q + 16

And

q = r + 8

⇒ r = q – 8

Total = Rs. 174

So,

p + q + r = 174

⇒ q + 16 + q + q – 8 = 174

So,

And

⇒ p : q : r =  107 : 83 : 71

∴ The ratio is 107 : 83 : 71.

Let the three numbers be A, B and C. Then,

A : B = 2 : 3 and B : C = 5 : 8

∴ Second number is 30.

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 6 - Question 63

The ratio between the largest angle and the smallest angle of a triangle is 2 ∶ 1. The second largest angle of a triangle is 33°. What will be the value of 50 percent of the largest angle of the triangle?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 6 - Question 63

Given:

The ratio between the largest angle and the smallest angle of a triangle is 2 ∶ 1.

The second-largest angle of a triangle is 33°.

According to the question,

The second-largest angle of a triangle is 33°.

The sum of the remaining angle of a triangle = 180° - 33° = 147°

Let the largest angle and the smallest angle of a triangle be 2x and x respectively.

Again,

2x + x = 147°

⇒ 3x = 147°

⇒ x = 49°

⇒ 2x = 2 × 49° = 98°

The value of 50 percent of the largest angle of the triangle = 49°

∴ The value of 50 percent of the largest angle of the triangle is 49°.
