Total units of work = 36 units (LCM of 6, 12 and 18)

Aâ€™s 1 hour work = 6 units

Bâ€™s 1 hour work = 3 units

Câ€™s 1 hour work = 2 units

Work done by three pipes in 2 hours = 9 + 8 = 17 units

Work done in 4 hours = 17*2 = 34 units

Remaining will be done by pipe A= 2/9

Total time required= 4 2/9 hours

Ratio of shares:

A : B : C = (4*1 + 4*(50/100)) : (8*1 + 8*(130/100)*1) : (9*2)

= > 6 : 92/5 : 18

= > 15 : 46 : 45

The share of B in the profit = (46/106)*159000 = Rs. 69000

The difference between CI and SI for three years,

Diff = P*[(r2 * (r + 300)]/1003

= > 2246.4 = P*[122 * (12 + 300)]/1003

= > 2246.4 = P*[144*312]/(100*100*100)

= > P = [2246.4*100*100*100]/(144*312)

= > P = Rs. 50000

P(E) = n(E)/n(S)

n(S) = 15C2

n(E) = 5C2 or 7C2

P(E) = 5C2 or 7C2 / 15C2

P(E) = 31/105

According to the question,

4x + 5x + 6x + 7x + 2 * 4 = 118

= > 22x = 118 â€“ 8

= > 22x = 110

= > x = 5

Present age of A = 4x + 2 = 22 years

Present age of D = 7x + 2 = 37 years

Required number of years = 37 – 22 = 15 years

Direction (6-10) :

The total mobiles sold by Shop S of all the given company mobiles

= > 1920 + 2260 + 2170 + 3850 + 3420 = 13620

Required ratio = 14520: 13620 = 242: 227

The total VIVO mobiles sold by all the given shops together

= > 3230 + 2750 + 3180 + 2260 + 2570 + 3440 = 17430

The total LENOVA mobiles sold by all the given shops together

= > 3310 + 4080 + 3670 + 3850 + 2190 + 2460 = 19560

Required difference = 19560 â€“ 17430 = 2130

The total number of mobiles sold by shop R of all the given company mobiles together

= > 2860 + 3180 + 1550 + 3670 + 3130 = 14390

Required average = 14390/5 = 2878

The total XIAOMI mobiles sold by shop P, Q and R together

= > 1830 + 2160 + 1550 = 5540

The total MOTO mobiles sold by shop S, T and U together

= > 3420 + 4280 + 3910 = 11610

Required % = (5540/11610)*100 = 48 %

The total number of mobiles sold by shop Q of all the given company mobiles

= > 4250 + 2750 + 2160 + 4080 + 2940 = 16180

The total number of mobiles sold by shop T of all the given company mobiles

= > 3860 + 2570 + 2690 + 2190 + 4280 = 15590
