Solutions:
Directions (Q. 1-5):
1). The series is +2 1/3 in each term.
= 11
30% of (P² + 13²) = ?
30% of (112 + 13b) = ?
30% of (121 + 169) = 30% of 290 = 87

2). The series is -2, -4, -8, -16,....
So, P = 186 - 4 = 182
?  = (P - 13) = (182 – 13) = 13

3). The series is ×1.5, ÷2, ×1.5, ÷2,.....
0.06% of 54 ÷ P =?
0.06% of 54 ÷ 1.8 = 0.018

4). The series is +12, +14, +16, +18.....
= 105
20% of (P × 625) =?
20% of (105 × 625) =?
20% of (2625) =525

5). The series is -38, -36, -32, -30, -26, -24
= 34
P × 1/256 =?
34 × 1/256 =?
34 × 1/16 = 2   1/8

6). Profit Philips = 8 × 16/100 × 7/16 × 24/100 = 0.1344
Profit LG = 8 × 18/100 × 4/9 × 20/100 = 0.128
Total profit = 0.1344 + 0.1280 = 0.2624 crore = 26.24 lakh

7). LCD Samsung = 80000000 × 20/100 × 3/5 = Rs 9600000
LCD Videocon = 80000000 × 10/100 × 2/5 = Rs 32000000
Total cost of production = Rs 12800000
= 1.28 crore

8). Total profit
= 8 × 24/100 { 3/8 × 35/100 +  5/8 × 20/100}
= 24 × {1.05 + 1} = 24 × 2.05/100 = Rs 0.492 crores

9). (LED cost) Samsung = 8 × 20/100 × 2/5 = 0.64 crore
(LCD profit)Videocon = 8 × 10/100 × 2/5 × 25/100 = 0.08 crore
Required % = 0.08 × 100/0.64 = 12.5%

10). Profit LCD= 8 × 12/100 × 5/12 × 35/100
Profit LED = 8× 12/100 × 7/12 × 25/100
Ratio = 7 × 25 / 5 × 35 = 1/1 = 1:1
