Solutions:
1. The
series is, 11, 11+3, 14+9, 23+27….
series is, 11, 11+3, 14+9, 23+27….
2. The series is 7 + (13 + 1) = 9,
9 + (23
+ 1) = 18, 18 + (33 + 1) = 46,
+ 1) = 18, 18 + (33 + 1) = 46,
46 + (43
+ 1) = 111, 111 + (53 + 1) = 237
+ 1) = 111, 111 + (53 + 1) = 237
3. 5; The
series is +17, +34, +51, +68, +85,
series is +17, +34, +51, +68, +85,
…
ie 7 + 17 =
24, 24 + 34 = 58, 58 + 51 = 109,
24, 24 + 34 = 58, 58 + 51 = 109,
109 + 68 =
177, 177 + 85 = 262, …
177, 177 + 85 = 262, …
4. The series is +(1)2, –(2)2,
+(3)2, –(4)2, +(5)2, …
+(3)2, –(4)2, +(5)2, …
ie 19 + (1)2
= 20, 20 – (2)2 = 16,
= 20, 20 – (2)2 = 16,
16 + (3)2
= 25, 25 – (4)2 = 9, 9 + (5)2 = 34
= 25, 25 – (4)2 = 9, 9 + (5)2 = 34
5. The
series is +1.8, +2.2, + 2.6, +3,
series is +1.8, +2.2, + 2.6, +3,
+3.4, …
ie 7.4 + 1.8
= 9.2, 9.2 + 2.2 = 11.4, 11.4 +
= 9.2, 9.2 + 2.2 = 11.4, 11.4 +
2.6 = 14, 14
+ 3 = 17, 17 + 3.4 = 20.4
+ 3 = 17, 17 + 3.4 = 20.4
6. Let the
speed of the boat be 7x and that of the stream be x.
speed of the boat be 7x and that of the stream be x.
Then,
upstream speed = (7x – x) = 6x
upstream speed = (7x – x) = 6x
And,
downstream speed = 7x + x = 8x
downstream speed = 7x + x = 8x
Now,
upstream speed = 4.2/14×60 = 18 kmph
upstream speed = 4.2/14×60 = 18 kmph
So, 6x = 18
x = 3 kmph
Thus, speed
of stream = 3 kmph
of stream = 3 kmph
Downstream
speed = 8 × 3 = 24 kmph
speed = 8 × 3 = 24 kmph
Time taken
downstream to cover 17.6 km
downstream to cover 17.6 km
17.6/24×60=
44 minutes
44 minutes
7. Ratio of profits = 1500 × 12 : 6B : 4C : : 5
: 3 : 3
: 3 : 3
Capital of B
= (1500 x 12)/6 x 3/5 = 1800
= (1500 x 12)/6 x 3/5 = 1800
Capital of C
= (1500 x 12)/4 x 3/5 = 2700
= (1500 x 12)/4 x 3/5 = 2700
Amount of (B
+ C) = 2700 + 1500 = Rs 4500
+ C) = 2700 + 1500 = Rs 4500
8. Side of
square = 567 = 23.81
square = 567 = 23.81
Length of
rectangle = 23.81 + 4 = 27.81
rectangle = 23.81 + 4 = 27.81
Breadth of
rectangle = 23.81 – 4 = 19.81m
rectangle = 23.81 – 4 = 19.81m
Area of
rectangle = 27.81 × 19.81
rectangle = 27.81 × 19.81
= 550.91 →
551m
551m
9. Let the cost price of A be Rs x. Then the
cost price of B will be 1.2x and the cost price of C will be 1.2x × 1.10 =
1.32x
cost price of B will be 1.2x and the cost price of C will be 1.2x × 1.10 =
1.32x
Then the
cost price of D = x × 1.2 × 1.10 + 116 = Rs 1.32x + 116
cost price of D = x × 1.2 × 1.10 + 116 = Rs 1.32x + 116
Now, 1.32x +
116 – x = 500
116 – x = 500
or, 0.32x =
500 – 116 = 384
500 – 116 = 384
x = 384/32
x 100 = 1200
x 100 = 1200
B’s cost
price = 1200 × 1.2 = Rs 1440
price = 1200 × 1.2 = Rs 1440
Hence B paid
to A Rs 1440.
to A Rs 1440.
10. Ratio of
men to women
men to women
(15 × 10)M =
(25 × 8)W
(25 × 8)W
or, 150M =
200W
200W
or, 3M = 4W
W = ¾ M
1 man’s work
= 1/150
= 1/150
(10W + 3M =)
21/2 M can do the work in
21/2 M can do the work in
1/150
x 21/2 = 7/100 days
x 21/2 = 7/100 days
65/100
work done by 10 women in (?) days.
work done by 10 women in (?) days.
8 women – 1
work – 25 days
work – 25 days
10 women – 65/100
work in 25 x 8/10 x 65/100 = 13
days
work in 25 x 8/10 x 65/100 = 13
days
