Suppose, the can initially contains 7x and 5x of volume of a mixtures of A and B of volume respectively.
ATQ

⇒ 252 x – 189 = 140x + 147
⇒ 112x = 336 ⇒ x = 3
So, the can contained 21 litres of A initially.

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Ratio, Proportion, Mixture and Partnership - 1 - Question 16

The sum of the cubes of two numbers in the ratio 3 : 4 is 5824. The sum of the numbers is:    (SSC CGL 1st Sit. 2016)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Ratio, Proportion, Mixture and Partnership - 1 - Question 16

Let the number be 3x and 4x
(3x)3 + (4x)3 =  5824
⇒ 27x3 + 64x3 =  5824 ⇒ 91x3 =  5824
⇒ x3 =  64 ⇒ x =  4
∴ Sum of numbers are = x(4 + 3) = 4× 7 = 28

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Ratio, Proportion, Mixture and Partnership - 1 - Question 17

The numbers x, y, z are respectively proportional to 2, 3, 5 and the sum of x, y and z is 80. If the number z is given by the equation z = ax – 8, then a is    (SSC CGL 1st Sit. 2016)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Ratio, Proportion, Mixture and Partnership - 1 - Question 17

Let x, y and z be 2m, 3m and 5m.
According to Question,
2m + 3m + 5m = 80
⇒ 10m = 80 ⇒ m = 8
z = a, x – 8
∴ 5(8) = a(2)(8) – 8
⇒ 40 + 8 = 16 a ⇒ 48 = 16 a ⇒ a = 3

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Ratio, Proportion, Mixture and Partnership - 1 - Question 18

A and B invest ₹ 3000 and ₹ 2400 respectively in a business. If, after one year, there is a loss of ₹ 720, how much loss will B bear? (Loss or Profit is in proportion to their investments)    (SSC CGL 1st Sit. 2016)

If A and B are in the ratio 4 : 5 and the difference of their squares is 81, what is the value of A?    (SSC CGL 1st Sit. 2015)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Ratio, Proportion, Mixture and Partnership - 1 - Question 20

B2 - A2 = 81

Squaring both sides, we get

both sides subtract 1

Shortcut Method:
Let A be 4x and B be 5x
(5x)2 – (4x)2 = 81 (given)
9x2 = 81 ∴ x = 3
