1/(∛36 + ∛6 +1) (NOTE: ∛36 =

〖36〗^(1/3) = 〖〖(6〗^2 )〗^(1/(3 )) = 〖〖(6〗^(1/3))〗^2 = 1/(〖〖(6〗^(1/3))〗^2+ 6^(1/3)+1²) Then, Multiply and Divide

numerator and denominator by (6^(1/3)-1) We get, ((6^(1/3)-1))/((6^(1/3)-1) {〖〖(6〗^(1/3))〗^2+ 6^(1/3) ×1 + 1^2 } ) Now, (a³ - b³) = (a-b) (a²+ab+b²) ((6^(1/3)-1))/(〖〖(6〗^(1/3))〗^3-1) = (∛6-1)/(6-1) (∛6-1)/5 = (∛6 )/5- 1/5 A∛36 + B∛6 + C = 0 + (∛6 )/5- 1/5 From here we get the vales of A= 0 B= 1/5 C= - 1/5 A+B+C = 0 + 1/5 - 1/5 = 0

SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 65

If SecA + TanA = 2√2 + 9, then find the value of Sin A + Cos A 

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 65

Sec²A – Tan²A = 1 (SecA – TanA)

(SecA + TanA) = 1 (SecA – TanA) (2√2 + 9) = 1 (SecA - TanA) = 1/(2√2 + 9) SecA – TanA = 9 - 2√2 ………………

(i) SecA + TanA = 9 + 2√2 ………………

(ii) By solving the two equations e get, 2SecA = 18 SecA = 9 CosA = 1/9 Sin²A + Cos²A = 1 Sin²A + 1/81 = 1 Sin²A = 1 - 1/81 Sin²A = 80/81 SinA= (4√5)/9 SinA + CosA = (4√5)/9+ 1/9 SinA + CosA = (1+4√5)/9

SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 66

The cost of 3 mugs and 2 buckets is Rs.50 and that of 2 mugs and 3 bucket is Rs.60. Find the cost of 2 mugs and 5 buckets. 

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 66

Let cost of a mug and a bucket be x and y, respectively.

As per the question, 3x + 2y = 50 2x + 3y = 60

Solving the equation, for x and y, x=Rs.6 and y=Rs.16 Cost of 2 mugs and 3 buckets = 2x + 3y = 2 × 6 + 5 × 16 = Rs.92

SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 67

If two times of A is equal to three times of B and also equal to four times of C, then A : B : C is 

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 67

According to the question,
2A = 3B ⇒ B = 2/3 A And 2A = 4C ⇒ C = 1/2 A ∴ A : B : C = A : 2/3 A : 1/2 A = 6 : 4 : 3

SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 68

If 78*3945 is divisible by 11, where * is a digit, then * is equal to

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 68

A number is divisible by 11, if the difference of

sum of its digit at even places is either 0 or a

number divisible by 11. ( 5 + 9 + * + 7 ) – ( 4 + 3 + 8 ) = 0 or multiple of 11 ⇒ 21 - * - 15 ∴ * +

6 = a multiple of 11 ∴ * = 5

SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 69

A, B and C are three pipes connected to a tank. A and B together fill the tank in 30 hours, B and C together fill the tank in 40 hours. A and C together fill the tank in 60 hours. In how much time will A, B and C fill the tank separately  

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 69

A+B fill in 30 hrs B+C fill in 40 hrs A + C fill in

60 hrs 2(A+B+C) fill in (30×40×60 )/(30×40+

40×60+60×30) = 40/3 hours Therefore A + B +

C fill the tank in 80/3 hours Now, A = (A+B+C)

– (B+C) fills in 3/80 - 1/40 = 1/80 = 80 hours

Similarly B fills in 3/80 - 1/60 = 1/24 = 48 hours

And C fills in 3/80 - 1/30 = 1/240 = 240 hours .

SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 70

A person takes loan of Rs. 20,000 on the condition that he would pay it in the monthly instalment of Rs. 2,500. He has to pay interest @ 16% on the outstanding balances, then find out the average rate of interest received by the creditor per annum. 

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 70

Monthly instalment = Rs. 2,500 Total loan =

Rs. 20,000 ∴ Number of instalment =

20,000/2,500 = 8 Once the payment starts

outstanding balances will go on diminishing.

Hence, from point of view of interest, principal

= 20,000 + 17,500 + 15,000 + 12,500 + 10,000 + 7,500 + 5,000 + 2,500 = Rs 90,000 ∴ Interest on Rs. 90,000 for 1 month at 16% p.a. = (90,000 × 16 × 1)/(100 × 12) = Rs. 1,200 Average rate of interest = (100 × I)/(P × T) T = 8 months = 8/12 year = (1200 × 100 × 12)/(20,000 × 8) = 9%

SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 71

Divide Rs. 35,240 into two parts such that the first part after 12 years is equal to the second part after 8 years, compound interest being 25% per annum compounded yearly. 

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier-I Practice Test - 31 - Question 71

Let the first part be x and the second part be y

The first part after 12 years = x ( 1 + 25/100 )¹²

The second part after 8 years = y ( 1 + 25/100 )⁸ As given in the problem these two amounts are equal. So, y ( 1 + 25/100 )⁸ = x ( 1 +

25/100 )¹² Or y/x = ( 1 + 25/100 )⁴ Or y/x = 625/256 We have the x + y = Rs. 35,240 Using

the ratio formula, y = 625/(625 + 256) × 35,240 = Rs. 25,000 x = 256/(6
