Solution:
1). Required number = (17% of 27300) + (14% of 24700)
= 4641 + 3458
= 8099.

2). Required ratio = (21% of 24700)/(14% of 27300) = (21 x 24700)/ (14 x 27300) =19/14.

3). Students of institute M at graduate level= 17% of 27300 = 4641.
Students of institute S at graduate level = 14% of 27300 = 3822.
Therefore Total number of students at graduate in institutes M and S = (4641 + 3822) = 8463.

4). Required ratio = (21% of 24700)/ (13% of 27300) = (21 x 24700)/(13 x 27300) = 19/13.

5). Required number = (15% of 24700) + (12% of 24700)
= 3705 + 2964
= 6669.

6). DIFFERENCE = Rs. [(10% of 4.75) - (8% of 4.75)]
= Rs. (2% of 4.75) lakhs
= Rs. 0.095 lakhs
= Rs. 9500.

7). Let the amounts invested in 2002 in Companies P and Q be Rs. 8x and Rs. 9xrespectively.
Then, interest received after one year from Company P = Rs. (6% of 8x)
= Rs. (48x/100)
and interest received after one year from Company Q  = Rs. (4% of 9x)
= Rs. (36x/100)
Required ratio = 4/3

9). Amount received from Company P after one year (i.e., in 199) on investing Rs. 12 lakhs in it
= Rs. [12 + (8% of 12)] lakhs
= Rs. 12.96 lakhs.
Appreciation received on investment during the period of two years
= Rs. (14.256 - 12) lakhs
= Rs. 2.256 lakhs = Rs. 2, 25,600

10). Amount received from Company Q after one year on investment of Rs. 5 lakhs in the year
1996
= Rs. [5 + (6.5% of 5)] lakhs
= Rs. 5.325 lakhs.
Amount received from Company P after one year on investment of Rs. 5.325 lakhs in the year 1997
= Rs. [5.325 + (9% of 5.325)] lakhs
= Rs. 5.80425 lakhs
= Rs. 5, 80, 425
