Solution:
1).  12×2 = 24 + 4= 28
28×3 = 84 – 9 = 75
75×4 = 300 + 16 = 316
316×5 = 1580 – 25 = 1555
1555×6 = 9330 + 36 = 9366

2). 3×2 + 14 (7×2) = 20
20×3 + 27(9×3) = 87
87×4 + 44 (11×4) = 392
392×5 + 65 (13×5) = 2025

3). 55 + 5 = 60
60 + 7 = 67
67 + 11 = 78
78 + 13 = 91
91 + 17 = 108+108 + 19 = 127

4). 112 – 13 = 111
111 + 23 (8) = 119
119 – 33 (27) = 92
92 + 43 (64) = 156
156 - 53 (125) = 31
31 + 63 (216) = 247

5). 15 + 1 = 16
15 + 16 = 31
16 + 31 = 47
31 + 47 = 78
47 + 78 = 125
78 + 125 = 203

6). Total number of Banks in 2009 = 50 + 100 + 150 + 225 = 525
Total number of Banks in 2012 = 175 + 250 + 325 + 425 = 1175
Increase = 1175 - 525 = 650
Percentage increase = 650/525 × 100= 123.8%

7). Total number of (Reserve Bank of India + Regional Rural Banks + Public Sector Banks) in 2009
= 50 + 100 + 150 = 300
Number of Reserve Bank of India in 2012 = 175
Required ratio = 300: 175 = 12: 7

8). Total number of banks in 2009 = 525
Total number of banks in 2010 = 75 + 150 + 175 + 250 = 650
Percentage increase = increase/525 × 100 = 125/525 × 100 = 23.8%
Total number of banks in 2011 = 125 + 200 + 250 + 275 = 825
Percentage increase = 825 – 650/650 × 100
= 175/650 × 100 = 26.92%
Total number of banks in 2012 = 1175
Percentage increase = 1175 – 825/825 × 100
1175 – 825/825 × 100 = 350/825 × 100 = 42.42%

9). Total number of employees working in (Reserve Bank of India + Regional Rural Banks + Public Sector Banks) in 2012
200000 (10/100 + 15/100 + 30/100) = 55 × 2000 = 110000
Average of the number of employees working in (Reserve Bank of India + Regional Rural Banks + Public Sector Banks)
= 110000/3 = 36666.7
Employees working in Private Banks in 2012 = 200000 × 45/100 = 90000
Required% = 90000 - 36666.7/900000 × 100 = 59.25%

10). Number of Reserve Bank of India and Regional Rural Banks in 2010
= 125 + 150 = 275
Number of Reserve Bank of India and Regional Rural Banks in 2012 = 175 + 250 = 425
Percentage increase = 425 – 275/275 × 100% = 150/275 × 100 = 54.54%
