7.A Container contains 192 liter of Milk. A seller draws out x% of Milk and replaced it with the same quantity of water. He repeated the same process for 3 times. And thus Milk content in the mixture is only 81 liter. Then how much percent he withdraw every time?

1. 10%

2. 15%

3. 18%

4. 20%

5. 25%

8.A Jar contains 30 liters mixture of Milk and Water in the ratio of x:y respectively. When 10 liter of the mixture is taken out and replaced it water, then the ratio becomes 2:3. Then what is the initial quantity of Milk in the Jar?

1. 12 Liter

2. 15 Liter

3. 18 Liter

4. 20 Liter

5. None

9.A right circular cone is placed over a cylinder of the same radius. Now the combined structure is painted on all sides. Then they are separated now the ratio of area painted on Cylinder to Cone is 3:1. What is the height of Cylinder if the height of Cone is 4 m and radius is 3 m?

1. 5 m

2. 6 m

3. 8 m

4. 10 m

1. 2376

2. 2476

3. 2496

4. 2516

5. None

MP=2,CP=1

Required answer 2000 ×2/1 = Rs 4000

MP = 7360 + 640 = Rs 8000

3.Let the capacity of tank T is =120 units

So number of units fill by pipes A,B,C,D and E is 3,4,2,4,6 respectively.

Capacity of tank X = (4+2+4)×30 = 300 units

Number of units filled by pipe B=10 × 4 = 40 unit

Tank filled by Pipe B is same as Pipe C i.e 40 units.

Time taken by C = 40/2 = 20 hours

Time taken by C is same as Pipe A so number of units fill by Pipe A = 20*3 = 60 units

ATQ,60 + 40 + 40 + 4*Z + 48 = 300

Z = 112/4= 28 hours

4.ATQ,5(T + 84) = 8(T + 30)

T = 60

Time taken by B = 720/4= 180 hours

5.Capacity of tank = 120 units

Time taken by all to fill the tank together = 120/19

6.We know that capacity of tank is 120 units

In 5 hours only 19 units can be filled.

So 120 unit can fill in 31 3/4 hours

7.Answer – 5. 25%

Explanation :

81 = 192(1-x/100)³

x = 25

8.Answer – 3. 18 Liter

Explanation :

x+y =30

(x-10*x/x+y)/ (y-10*y/(x+y) + 10) = 2/3

2x-4/3y = 20

x =18

9.Answer – 2. 6 m

Explanation :

Cylinder painted area = 2Ï€rh+Ï€r²

Cone painted area = Ï€rl

2h+r/√ (r² +h1² ) = 3:1

h = 6

__SOLUTIONS:__**1.ATQ,MP × 80/100×15/16= 150/100* CP**

MP=2,CP=1

Required answer 2000 ×2/1 = Rs 4000

**2.(MP - 640) =115/100 × 6400**

MP = 7360 + 640 = Rs 8000

3.Let the capacity of tank T is =120 units

So number of units fill by pipes A,B,C,D and E is 3,4,2,4,6 respectively.

Capacity of tank X = (4+2+4)×30 = 300 units

Number of units filled by pipe B=10 × 4 = 40 unit

Tank filled by Pipe B is same as Pipe C i.e 40 units.

Time taken by C = 40/2 = 20 hours

Time taken by C is same as Pipe A so number of units fill by Pipe A = 20*3 = 60 units

ATQ,60 + 40 + 40 + 4*Z + 48 = 300

Z = 112/4= 28 hours

4.ATQ,5(T + 84) = 8(T + 30)

T = 60

Time taken by B = 720/4= 180 hours

5.Capacity of tank = 120 units

Time taken by all to fill the tank together = 120/19

6.We know that capacity of tank is 120 units

In 5 hours only 19 units can be filled.

So 120 unit can fill in 31 3/4 hours

7.Answer – 5. 25%

Explanation :

81 = 192(1-x/100)³

x = 25

8.Answer – 3. 18 Liter

Explanation :

x+y =30

(x-10*x/x+y)/ (y-10*y/(x+y) + 10) = 2/3

2x-4/3y = 20

x =18

9.Answer – 2. 6 m

Explanation :

Cylinder painted area = 2Ï€rh+Ï€r²

Cone painted area = Ï€rl

2h+r/√ (r² +h1² ) = 3:1

h = 6
