Solution:
1). Total money = 55x + 85x + 105x = 3920
245x = 3920
x = 16

2). speed of the car = 616/8 = 77km/hr
speed of the train = 10/7 × 77 = 110 km/hr
Distance covered by train = 110 × 13 = 1430 km.

3). The pattern of the number series is
12+5×1=17,  17+5×3=32,  32+5×5=57
57+5×7=92,  92+5×9=137

4). The pattern is -5.5, -11, -16.5, -22 and so on.

5). First series: 3, 6, 9 (increased by 3)
Second Series: 7, 28, 112, 448 (multiplied by 4)

6). Let price of 1 kg rice = Rs.10.
CP of 800 gm rice = Rs.8.
She wants to earn a profit of 40% on per Kg
SP = 10 + 40% of 10 = Rs. 14 per kg.
Faulty balance shows 800 gm = 1000 gm (1 kg)
She sells 800 gm for Rs.14.
Profit = 14 – 8 = Rs. 6.
Profit(%) = 6/8 * 100 = 75%.

7). 80/100 * x = 140/100 * y
x = 7/4y
x + y = 440
7/4 y + y = 440
y = 160 ; x = 280

8). Required percentage = (750000 - 700000)/700000 * 100 = 7.14%

9).
