If the sum of five consecutive odd numbers is 255 then find the sum of largest and smallest number.
SUm of 5 odd numbers = 255
Average = 255/5 = 51
47…..49…..51……53……55
Average = 51
Sum of largest and small number = 47+55 = 102
Nine students of a class contribute a certain sum. Seven of them give Rs. 5 each and the other two give Rs. 5 & 9 more then the average contribution of all the 9 students. The average contribution of the class of 9 students is.
Average = sum/n
Average of 9 students = x
n = 9
Seven of them give Rs. 5 = 7 x 5 = 35
35+(5+x)+(9+x)
∴ other two give Rs. 5 and Rs. 9 more than the average contribution
9x = 49 + 2x
9x  2x = 49
7x = 49
x = 7
Sonam calculates average of 10 positive 2 digit integers. By mistake she interchanges the digits of one number while calculating the average. Because of which, the average becomes 2.7 less than the correct answer. What is the difference between the two digits of the number which was reversed while calculating the average?
Let the original number be (10b+a)
Because of interchange, the mistaken number is (10a+b)
Given that, 10b+a = 10a+b +(2.7*10) => 9b9a = 27 => ba = 3
So, the correct answer is A.

Ratio between present ages of A, B and C is 5:4:6. Total of the ages of A and C after 5 years will be 54 years. What will be the ratio of ages of B and C after 4 years?
Option (2) 5:7 is correct✅answer.
Explanation:
Let age of A = 5 x
B= 4x
C = 6x
Then, according to the question;
( 5x+5) + (6x+5) = 54
11x + 10 = 54
=> 11x = 5410
=> 11x = 44
=> x = 4
B's age after 4 years;
= 4x +4
=> 4*4+4
=> 20 years.
C's age after 4 years ;
= 6x+4
=>6*4+4
= 28 years
Therefore, ratio = 20/28
=> ratio = 5:7
A farmer wants to mix 100 kg of Rs. 40/kg rice and some quantity of Rs. 60/kg rice. What quantity of 60kg rice should be mixed to get Rs. 50 /kg rice mix?
Let the rice quantity of Rs. 60 /kg rice be x.
Price for Rs. 40 /kg = 200*40
Price for Rs. 60/kg = x*60
After mixing the two types of rice the price = 50*(200+x)
The price will remain same after and before mixing, hence the equation becomes:
200*40 + x*60 = 50(200+x)
x(6050) = 200*(5040)
10x = 200*10
X = 200 kg
So, the correct answer is A.
Sum of the ages of a father and son is 45 years. Five years, ago product of their ages was 4 times the father’s age at that time. Present ages of father and his son, respectively are:
Let the present age of the father be x
∴ The present age of the son is (45−x)
Five years ago Age of father =(x−5)
Age of son =((45−x)−5)=(40−x)
⇒(x−5)(40−x)=4×(x−5)
⇒40x−200−x2+5x=4x−20
⇒x2−41x+180=0
⇒(x−36)(x−5)=0
⇒x=36 or x=5 (Not possible)
∴x=36 years
∴ Present age of father =36 years
∴ Present age of son =45−36=9 years
So, the correct answer is B.
Kamla got married 6 years ago. Today her age is 1(1/4) times her age at the time of marriage. Her son age is 1/10 times her age. Her son age is:
Let Kamla's age 6 years ago be x years.
So, Kamla's present age = (x + 6) years
∴ x + 6 = 5x / 4
⇒ 4x + 24 = 5x
⇒ x = 24
So, Kamla's Present age = (x + 6) years = 30 years
∴ Son's present age = 30/10 = 3 years
So, the correct answer is B
John inherits Rs. 200000, and invests a part of money in bonds with an interest rate of 11% per annum, and saves the remainder at 9% per annum. He receives Rs. 20400 as interest for 1 year. What amount he invested at 11% and 9 % respectively?
Let x be the amount invested in bonds then 200000x will be saved by John.
As per the questions, the interest earned is 20400 which includes both bonds and savings. Hence x*11/100 + 9*(200000x) /100 = 20400
2x = 20400001800000 = 240000
X= 120000 (Invested in bonds)
Savings = 200000120000 = 80000
So, the correct option is A.
Ratio of father’s age to his son’s age is 7:3. Product of their ages is 756. Ratio of their ages after 6 years will be
Let the father's age be 7x
and son's age be 3x
So, 7x*3x=756
21x^2=756
X^2=756/21
X^2=36
X=6
Father's age=7x=6*7=42
Son's age=3x=3*6=18
Father's age 6 year hence =42+6=48
Son's age 6 year hence=18+6=24
So, ratio of their ages after 6 years will be 48/24=2=2:1
The ratio of Vipan’s age & Sonia’s age is 3:5 and the sum of their age is 80 years. The ratio of their ages after 10 years will be.
Let the age of the Vimal and Arun be 3x, 5x resp.
From the given condition, we get
3x+5x=80 ⇒8x=80 ⇒ x=80/8=10Then, Vimal′s age is 3x=3×10=30 and Arun′s age is 5x=5×10=50
After ten years, Vimal's age will be 30 + 10 = 40
Arun’s age will be 50 + 10 = 60
Then their ratio = 40 : 60 = 2 : 3
So, the correct answer is A.

Average of remaining two numbers = 42/2 = 21
So, the correct answer is B
The age of father is 5 times that of his son. 3 years ago, the age of father was 8 times that of his son. Find the present age of father.
Given:
Present age
Age of father = 5 × Age of Son
3 years ago,
Age of father = 8 × Age of son
Calculation:
Let the age of father and son be F and S.
According to the question,
F = 5S (1)
Again according to the question,
⇒ (F  3) = 8(S  3) (2)
After equating the equation (1) and equation (2)
⇒ 5S  3 = 8S  24
⇒ 3S = 21
⇒ S = 7 years
From equation (1)
⇒ F = 5 × 7
⇒ F = 35 years
∴ The present age of the father is 35 years.
So, the correct option is A .
A cricketer has completed 10 innings and his average is 21.5 runs. How many runs must he make in his next innings so as raise his average to 24?
Option (a) 49 is correct
Explanation:
total run scored in 10 innings :
=> 21.5 * 10 = 215
Total run he must score after 11 innings= 24*11 = 264
He must score in 11 th innings:
( 264 215) = 49
The ratio of father’s age to the son’s age is 4:1 the product of their ages is 196. What will be the ratio of their ages after 5 years?
Let the ages of father and son be 4x and x respectively.
Product of ages = 196
4x X x = 196
4x^2 = 196
So, x^2 = 49
Thus x = 7
So, father's age and son's age = 28 and 7 respectively.
So, ratio after 5 years becomes;
28 + 5 : 7 + 5
= 33 : 12
= 11 : 4
So, the correct answer is C.
The ratio of the ages of father and the son at present is 6:1. After 5 years the ratio will become 7:2. What is present age of the son?
According to the question,
We have the following statements:
The ratio of the ages of father and son at present is 6: 1. After 5 years the ratio will become 7:2
Now, let's take the age of the father to be 6x years and that of his son to be x years.
So, according to the second statement:
Using the cross multiplication method,
2(6x+5) = 7(x+5)
12x+10 = 7x+35
12x7x = 3510
5x = 25
x = 25/5
x = 5 years
Hence, the present age of the son is 5 years.
So, the correct option is C.

After 5 years, the age of father will be thrice the age of his son, whereas five years ago he was 7 times as old as his son was. What is the present age of father?
After 5 years, father's age = 3 × Son's age
5 years ago, father's age = 7 × Son's age
Calculation:
Let 5 years ago, son's age be s.
5 years ago, Father's age = 7 × s = 7s
After 5 years, son's age = s + 5 + 5 = s + 10
After 5 years, father's age = 7s + 5 + 5 = 7s + 10 (1)
After 5 years, father's age = 3 × Son's age = 3 × (s + 10) (2)
Equating equation (1) and (2),
⇒ 7s + 10 = 3s + 30
⇒ 7s – 3s = 30 – 10
⇒ 4s = 20
⇒ s = 20/4
⇒ s = 5
Present age of father = 7s + 5
⇒ 7 × 5 + 5
⇒ 35 + 5 = 40
∴ The present age of the father is 40 years.
The ratio of the age of Rahul five years before to the age of Shiv 5 years hence is 3 : 5 and the ratio of the present age of Rahul to the present age of Riya is 5 : 4. If the average present age of Shiv and Riya is 18 years, then the present age of Riya is?
Given:
Rahul's age 5 years ago : shiv's age 5 years hence = 3 : 5
Rahul : Riya = 5 : 4
(Shiv + Riya)'s average = 18 years
Calculation:
Let the present ages of Rahul and Riya be 5x and 4x.
Rahul's age 5 years ago = 5x  5
so, Shiv's age after 5 years = 5/3(5x  5)
∴ Shiv's present age = 5/3(5x  5)  5
A.T.Q
5/3(5x  5)  5 + 4x = 18 × 2 = 36
⇒ 25x/3  25/3  5 + 4x = 36
⇒ 37x/3 = 148/3
⇒ x = 148/37 = 4 years
Riya's present age = 4 × 4 = 16 years
∴ Riya's present age is 16 years.
So, the correct answer is E.
The average age of a board of 10 consultants of a firm is same as it was 2 yrs back on account of the replacement of one of the older consultants by a younger man. Find the difference between the age of the old consultant and the young man.
Let the average age of board of consultants before replacement by a old consultant be a years. The sum of the ages of the consultants on the board = 10*a
The average age of the board of consultants 2 years age = a2
The sum of the ages of the consultants on the board 2 years ago = 10(a2)
After the older consultant was replaced with a younger man, the average remains the same as it was 2 yrs ago i.e., 10a hence, the younger man was 20 years younger to the old consultant.
So, the correct option is B.
