Let the length of the train be x metres.

Then, the train covers x metres in 8 seconds

(train is actually covering itself because length of man is very less

comparable to train)and (x + 180) metres in 20 seconds.

equate speed in both cases=d/t

∴ x/8 =( x + 180) / 20 ⇔ 20x =

8(x + 180) ⇔ x = 120.

∴ Length of the train = 120 m.

Speed of the train = [120/8]m/sec (convert to

km/hr. i.e. x 18/5)

=[120/8] x 18/5kmph = 54 kmph

Then, the train covers x metres in 8 seconds

(train is actually covering itself because length of man is very less

comparable to train)and (x + 180) metres in 20 seconds.

equate speed in both cases=d/t

∴ x/8 =( x + 180) / 20 ⇔ 20x =

8(x + 180) ⇔ x = 120.

∴ Length of the train = 120 m.

Speed of the train = [120/8]m/sec (convert to

km/hr. i.e. x 18/5)

=[120/8] x 18/5kmph = 54 kmph

7.e

5% of 2000=100

so 2000-100=1900

so 2000-100=1900

so, if he sells

1900 he will get 25% profit

cost per piece Rs 25……so 25x 1900

if 125%…………………..25×1900

100 %………………….?

?= 25x1900x100/125=38000=CP

if 50% rejected, only 1000 pieces sold

so 1000×25=25000=SP

loss=cp-sp= 38000-25000=13000

1900 he will get 25% profit

cost per piece Rs 25……so 25x 1900

if 125%…………………..25×1900

100 %………………….?

?= 25x1900x100/125=38000=CP

if 50% rejected, only 1000 pieces sold

so 1000×25=25000=SP

loss=cp-sp= 38000-25000=13000

Let x, y and z

be the amounts invested in schemes P, Q and R respectively.

be the amounts invested in schemes P, Q and R respectively.

Then,

add individual interest to get total using SI=

p*r*t/100

[x * 10 * 1]/100 + [y x 12 x 1]/100 + [z x 15 x

1]/100 = 3200

10x + 12y + 15z = 320000…………..1

add individual interest to get total using SI=

p*r*t/100

[x * 10 * 1]/100 + [y x 12 x 1]/100 + [z x 15 x

1]/100 = 3200

10x + 12y + 15z = 320000…………..1

Now, z = 240%

of y =(12/5)y……… 2

of y =(12/5)y……… 2

And, z = 150%

of x =(3/2)x so, x=(2/3 )z = (2/3) x value of z from 2

x= (2/3) x (12/5) y = (8/5)y………..3

From (1), (2) and (3), we have :

16y + 12y + 36y = 320000

y = 5000

of x =(3/2)x so, x=(2/3 )z = (2/3) x value of z from 2

x= (2/3) x (12/5) y = (8/5)y………..3

From (1), (2) and (3), we have :

16y + 12y + 36y = 320000

y = 5000

9.a

sum of ages is

360 years.

360 years.

The ratio of

children and parents ages is 2:1.

Total age of parents = 360 x 1 / 3 = 120 years

Ratio of wife and husband age is 5:7.

children and parents ages is 2:1.

Total age of parents = 360 x 1 / 3 = 120 years

Ratio of wife and husband age is 5:7.

Therefore, the

age of husband = 120 x 7 / 12 = 70

age of husband = 120 x 7 / 12 = 70

10.e

Total price of

the two books = Rs. [(12 x 10) – (11.75 x 8)] = Rs. (120 – 94) = Rs. 26

Let the price of one book be Rs.x

Then, the price of other book = Rs. (x + 60% of

x )= x + (3/5)x= (8/5)x

so, x +(8/5)x=26 , x=10

The prices of the two books hence are Rs. 10 and

Rs. 16

the two books = Rs. [(12 x 10) – (11.75 x 8)] = Rs. (120 – 94) = Rs. 26

Let the price of one book be Rs.x

Then, the price of other book = Rs. (x + 60% of

x )= x + (3/5)x= (8/5)x

so, x +(8/5)x=26 , x=10

The prices of the two books hence are Rs. 10 and

Rs. 16
