Solutions (1-5)

Let investment of Rahul, Sandy and Sati be 2x, 3x and 4x respectively. Ratio of profit Rahul : Sandy : Sati 2x × 4 : 3x × 4 : 4x × 10 +(2x – 800)×6 +(3x+1500)× 6 +(5x × 2) +(5x–800)× 2 (9x +1500) × 2 30x – 6400 : 48x + 12000 : 50x ATQ, 50x128x+5600 = 125376 ⇒ x = 250 Ratio of profit share of Rahul, Sandy and Sati is 1100∶24000∶12500→11∶240∶125

1. (a); Required percentage = 240376×100 = 63.829% ≃ 64%

2. (d); Required difference = 240−11376×37600=22,900

3. (c); Investment of Veer = 4×250×350100=3500 Interest earned by Veer = 3500[1+20100]2−3500=1540

4. (b); Required average = 240+1252×37600376 =18,250

5. (e); Investment of Bhavya = 2x+3x+4x3 = 3x = 3 × 250 = Rs.750 Required profit = 750 - 2×250 = 750 – 500 = 250

6. (c); If overall alloy contain copper as 45% (150×35+2x5)=45100(150+x) (90+2x5)=920(150+x) 1800+8x=1350+9x x = 450 kg If overall alloy contain copper as 55% (90+2x5)=55100(150+x) 1800 + 8x = 1650 + 11x 3x = 150 ⇒ x = 50 kg Minimum value of X is 50 kg

7. (c); Let the quantity of three liquids is 200a, 300a and 400a 10% of water in first type means 20a water 20% of water in second type means 60a water x% of water in third type means 4xa water ∴ ATQ, (20a+60a+4xa)/900a = 12/100 ⇒ 4xa = 108a – 80a ⇒ x = 28a/4a = 7

8. (e); From statement I x×30100+40×60100(x+40)=12 ⇒ (2400+30x)100(x+40)=12 ⇒ x=20 Now from statement II (3x×y100+30×50100)3x+30=45100 Here 3X = 3 × 20 = 60 litres ⇒ (60y100)+1590 = 45100 ⇒ 60y100 = 812–15 ⇒ y = 42.5 ∴ y∶x = 42.5 : 20 = 17 : 8

9. (d); Let the initial quantity is 3y, 4y & 5y of these varities According to condition 3y+9∶ 4y+4∶ 5y –x=9∶10∶10 From 1st 2 ratios ⇒ 3y+94y+4=910 ⇒ y=9, Hence sum of initial quantities is (3 + 4 + 5) × 9 = 108 kg NOTE: No need calculate Value of x

10. (b); Let gold and copper in Type A alloy be 6a and 5a Let gold and copper in type B alloy 5b and 3b ⇒ 6a+5b=122 … (i) 5a+3b=90 … (ii) Solving equation (i) and (ii) we get a=12 ⇒ b=10 Weight of type ‘B’ alloy = (5 + 3) × 10 = 80 gm
