Solutions
 (3) Ratio of area = 25:36 (given )
So, ration of height = 25:36 = 5 : 6 (ans)
2) (4) edge increase by 40%
Area increase by = (x + y + xy/100) %
= 40 + 40 + 4040 /100 = 96 % (ans)
3) (3) HCF = 15; product of two no = 6300
So, undivided part of no’s = 6300/1515 = 420/15 = 28
Factor of 28 is (1, 28) and (4, 7)
so , the no of possible pair is 2
4) (3) use a2– b2= (a+b)(ab)
5) (4) after reducing 2 innings , the total run excluded= 100 + 76 = 176
So , lowest score=2; highest score = 174 (ans)
6) (4) ratio of fares = 4 : 1
Ratio of first class: second class = 1 : 40
Ratio of fare collections = 4*1 : 1*40 = 1 : 10
Amount of first class passenger = 1100 * 1/11 = 100 (ans)
7) (1) english and hindi passed student = (60 + 70 )% = 130 %
But it not possible that passing percentage is more than 100%
And 40% pass in both subject which is english and hindi
So, actual passing percentage is = 130 – 40 = 90%
Percentage of failed student = 100 – 90 = 10 % (ans)
8) (4) cp of A cp of B cp of C
100 120 120 5/4 = 150
According the question 150 = 225
So, 1 = 225/150
And 100 = 225/150 100 = 150 (ans)
9) (4) total interest after 2 years = 38%
38% ——– 760
100%———760/38*100= 2000 (ans)
10) difference between CI – SI = R2//10
300——1%
30000————100% (ANS)
11) (3) p and q can in 12 days; q and r in 15 days; r and p in 20 days
LCM of 12, 15 and 20 = 60 unit work
P,q and r 1 day work = 12/2= 6 unit
P one day work = 6 4 = 2
So, total days to fines the task by P = 60/2 = 30 (ans)
12) (2) ratio of efficiency of A : B : C = 50 : 100 : 75 = 2:4:3
Total work =60 unit
A,B and C can do the job in = 60/9= 623days (ans)
13) (1) total time = 108/(12+12) = 4.5 h (ans)
14) (1) 0+3=3 ; 3+5= 8 ; 8+7= 15 ; 15 +9 =24 ; 24+11= 35 (ans)
15) (1) (32+3)3+1(32+3)3 = 4 +3+43 =8 (ans)
