Solution:
1).By observing the table
2).Reqd %income= (132-30/30) ร100 = (102/30) ร100=340%
3).Reqd average =(490+60+95+100+42)/ 5=(787/5)=157.4
โ157
4).Total no. of employees in 2008=375
Twice the no. of employees=750
In 2010 the total no. of employees is 750.
In 2011 the total no. of employees is 787.
Hence in 2010 the no. of employees is double that in 2008.
5).Reqd %= (132-105/132) ร100 = (27/132) ร100 =20.45%
6).The average sales of The Hindu=(525+315+345+425+575)/5 =(2185/5) =437
Average monthly income=437ร8ร1000 =3496000 =Rs.34.96 lakh
7).Reqd per cent= (350/325) ร100 =107.69%
8).Sale of Dainik Jagran in all cities=325+495+390+550+325=2085
Sale of Dainik Bhaskar in all cities=425+175+350+525+520=1995
โด Reqd difference = (2085-1995) ร1000 =90ร1000=90000
9).Reqd average=(315+495+350+175+125)/ 5 =(1460/ 5) =292000
10).Reqd ratio= (345+390+450+350+75) / (575+325+490+520+210)
=1610/2120 =161:212
