Solutions:
1). d)
Total number of students from all the classes together in year 2010 = 138 + 124 + 116 + 126 + 123 + 120 = 747
2). a)
Average number of students in all the classes in the year 2009 = (122 + 112 + 100 + 125 + 124 + 116)/6 = 699/6 = 116.5 = 117 (approx.)
3). b)
Percentage Increase = (128 – 120)/120 x 100 = 6.666 = 6.67 (approx.)
4). c)
Number of students in class X in the year 2013 = 124
Number of students in class X from all the year together = 116 + 120 + 121 + 121 + 124 + 128 = 730
Required percentage = 124/730 x 100 = 16.98 = 17 (approx.)
5). d)
Required ratio = (142 + 145):(136 + 144) = 28 : 280 = 41 : 40

(6 – 10):

6). c)
