**SOLUTIONS**1.

Total male strength of college = Sum of male students in each department

= 120 + 100 + 90 + 90 + 100 + 80

= 580

2.

Total number of male students in the college = 580

Total number of female students in the college = 90 + 90 + 108 + 135 + 180 + 48

= 651

∴ Sex ratio = 651/580 ≈ 1.1

3.

There are six departments,

∴ 6x males leave the college and 6x females join the college.

Number of male students = 580 – 6x

Number of female students = 651 + 6x

Sex ratio = (651 + 6x) / (580 – 6x)

⇒ 2.0775 = (651 + 6x) / (580 – 6x)

⇒ 1204.95 – 12.465x = 651 + 6x

⇒ 553.95 = 18.465x

Solving x = 30

∴ Number of males in economics department = 80 – 30 = 50

Number of females in economics department = 48 + 30 = 78

∴ Sex ratio = 78/50 = 1.56

4.

Sex ratio = Number of females/Number of males

For History department, sex ratio = 90/120 = 0.75

For English department, sex ratio = 90/100 = 0.9

For Mathematics department, sex ratio = 108/90 = 1.2

For Chemistry department, sex ratio = 135/90 = 1.5

For Physics department, sex ratio = 180/100 = 1.8

For Economics department, sex ratio = 48/80 = 0.6

Arranging in decreasing order of their sex ratios:

Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, English, History and Economics.

5.

For Physics department:

Total tuition fee collected = (Total number of students in the department – 30) × 15500

= (100 + 180 – 30) × 15500 = 3875000

Lab fees collected = Total number of students in the department × 2500

= 280 × 2500 = 70000

Infrastructure fee + Exam fee = Total number of students × (2800 + 1200)

= 280 × 4000 = 1120000

∴ Total fee collected in physics department = 3875000 + 700000 + 1120000 = 5695000

For History department:

Total tuition fee collected = (Total number of students in the department – 30) × 15500

= (120 + 90 – 30) × 15500 = 2790000

Literary club fees collected = Total number of students in the department × 2500

= 210 × 1500 = 315000

Infrastructure fee + Exam fee = Total number of students × (2800 + 1200)

= 210 × 4000 = 840000

∴ Total fee collected in History department = 2790000 + 315000 + 840000 = 3945000

6.

9.897% of 4331 + 29.779% of 2501 = ?

Approximating the values to the nearest integer:

⇒ 10% of 4330 + 30% of 2500 = ?

=>10*4330/100+30*2500/100=?

⇒ ? = 433 + 750 = 1183 ≈ 1180

7.

Given expression is,

34.08 + 76.81 + 10.18 = 14.18% of 1199.80 - ?

We can write the given values as:

34.08 ≈ 34 and 76.81 ≈ 77

10.18 ≈ 10 and 14.18 ≈ 14 and 1199.80 ≈ 1200

Then,

⇒ 34 + 77 + 10 = 14% of 1200 - ?

⇒ 34 + 77 + 10 = (14/100) × 1200 - ?

⇒ 34 + 77 + 10 = 14 × 12 - ?

⇒ 34 + 77 + 10 = 168 - ?

⇒ 121 = 168 - ?

⇒ ? = 168 - 121

⇒ ? ≈ 47

8.

Given expression is,

(241.79 ÷ 4.20) × 2.05 = 13.16 × 7.40 + ?

We can write the given values as:

241.79 ≈ 242 and 4.20 ≈ 4

2.05 ≈ 2 and 13.16 ≈ 13 and 7.40 ≈ 7

Then,

⇒ (242 ÷ 4) × 2 = 13 × 7 + ?

⇒ 60.5 × 2 = 13 × 7 + ?

⇒ 121 = 13 × 7 + ?

⇒ 121 = 91 + ?

⇒ ? = 121 - 91

⇒ ? ≈ 30

9.

Given expression is,

(27.27 ÷ 3.15) + 36.89 = 23.09 × 2.18 ÷ ?

We can write the given values as:

27.27 ≈ 27 and 3.15 ≈ 3

36.89 ≈ 37 and 23.09 ≈ 23 and 2.18 ≈ 2

Then,

⇒ (27 ÷ 3) + 37 = 23 × 2 ÷ ?

⇒ 9 + 37 = 23 × 2 ÷ ?

⇒ 9 + 37 = 46 ÷ ?

⇒ 46 = 46 ÷ ?

⇒ ? ≈ 1

10.

Given expression is,

(100.10 ÷ 24.89) × 15.80 = 89.15 - ?

We can write the given values as:

100.10 ≈ 100 and 24.89 ≈ 25

15.80 ≈ 16 and 89.15 ≈ 89

Then,

⇒ (100 ÷ 25) × 16 = 89 - ?

⇒ 4 × 16 = 89 - ?

⇒ 64 = 89 - ?

⇒ ? = 89 - 64

⇒ ? ≈ 25
