QUESTION: 17

The ratio of two numbers is 7 : 10 and their difference is 105. The numbers are

Solution:

Since the difference between the two numbers is 105, they are x and x + 105. The ratio of the two numbers is 7/10. So this may be written as

7 / 10 = x / (x + 105)

7(x + 105) = 10x  [Multiply both sides by 10(x + 105) to eliminate the denominators]

7x + 735 = 10x

735 = 3x  [Subtract 7x from both sides]

245 = x  [Divide both sides by 3]

350 = x + 105

So the two numbers are 245 and 350.

Verification

245 / 350 = 49 / 70 = 7 / 10 [Divide the numerator by 5 then by 7]

QUESTION: 19

If x : y = 3 : 4, the value of x2y + xy2 : x3 + y3 is

Solution:

From the given data, we have x = (3/4) y or 4x = 3y

(x2y + xy2) :: (x2 + y2) = xy(x + y) / {(x + y)(x2 - xy + y2) = (xy) / (x2 - xy + y2

Substituting x = (3/4)y from the above,

(x2y + xy2) :: (x2 + y2) = (3y2/4) / (9y/ 16 - 3y/ 4 + y2) = 12 / (9 - 12 + 16) = 12/13

QUESTION: 20

If p : q is the sub duplicate ratio of p–x2 : q–x2 then x2 is

Solution:

√(p-x2) /(q-x2)  = p/q --(1)

[Sub- duplicate ratios of,
a/b= √a/b]

Squaring both sides eq. -(1) ;

(p-x2) /(q-x2) = p2/ q2

q2( p-x2)  = p2(q-x2

q2 p - q2 x2  = p2 q - p2 x2

X2 ( p2-q2) = pq (p-q)

x2 =  pq (p-q) / (p+q) (p-q)

x2 = pq/p+q

Therefore, option (d) none of these is the correct answer.

QUESTION: 21

If 2s : 3t is the duplicate ratio of 2s – p : 3t – p then

Solution:

If given ratio x : y then it's duplicate

ratio = x^2 : y^2

2s / 3t = ( 2s -p)^2 / (3t -p)^2

2s( 3t -p )^2 = 3t( 2s - p )^2

2s( 9t^2 - 6tp + p^2 ) = 3t(4s^2 -4sp+ p^2)

18st^2-12spt+2p^2s= 12s^2t-12spt+3p^2t

18st^2-12s^2t= 3p^2t - 2p^2s

6st(3t -2s) = p^2(3t - 2s)

6st = p^2

Therefore ,

p^2 = 6st
