6 men = 8 women

8 women = 14 boys

12 men and 10 women and 7 boys

= > 16 women + 10 women + 4 women = 30 women

(8*80*8) = (30* x *12)

X = (8*80*8)/(30*12) = 128/9 = 14 2/9 days

Let the speed of the boat in still water be x km/hr,

According to the question,

[120/(x โ 12)] + [120/(x + 12)] = 75/4

2x/(x2 โ 144) = (75/4)*(1/120)

64x = 5x2 โ 720

5x2 โ 64x โ 720 = 0

5x2 โ 100x + 36x โ 720 = 0

5x(x โ 20) + 36(x โ 20) = 0

(5x + 36) (x โ 20) = 0

X = -36/5, 20 (- value will be eliminated)

The speed of the boat in still water = 20 Km/hr

The difference between the simple interest and compound interest for 2 years is,

Diff = sum*(r/100)2

256 = sum*(8/100)2

256 = sum*(64/10000)

Sum = 2560000/64 = Rs. 40000

Increased weight = 23*3 = 69 kg

So 2 womenโs weight = 68 kg + 69 kg = 137 kg

Average weight of 2 women = 137/2 = 68.5 kg

The share of A, B and C

= > [2x*4 + 4x*8]: [5x*12]: [6x*4 + 6x*(2/3)*8]

= > [8x + 32x]: [60x]: [24x + 32x]

= > 40x: 60x: 56x

= > 10: 15: 14

39โs = 156000

1โs = 4000

The share of B = 15โs = Rs. 60000

Direction (6-10) :

The total number of laptops manufactured by company P in the year 2013 and 2016 together

= > 15000 + 28000 = 43000

The total number of laptops manufactured by company R in the year 2014 and 2017 together

= > 21000 + 34000 = 55000

Required difference = 55000 โ 43000 = 12000

The total laptops manufactured in the year 2015 by all the given companies together

= > 33000 + 30000 + 23000 + 35000 = 121000

The total laptops manufactured in the year 2017 by all the given companies together

= > 35000 + 26000 + 34000 + 36000 = 131000

Required ratio = 121000: 131000 = 121: 131

The average number of laptops manufactured by company R in all the given years together

= > (18000 + 21000 + 23000 + 28000 + 34000)/5

= > 124000/5 = 24800

The total number of laptops manufactured by company Q in all the given years together

= > 24000 + 28000 + 30000 + 22000 + 26000 = 130000

The total number of laptops manufactured in the year 2016 by all the given companies together

= > 28000 + 22000 + 28000 + 29000 = 107000

Required % = (130000/107000)*100 = 122 %

The total number of laptops manufactured by company R in the year 2013, 2015 and 2016 together

= > 18000 + 23000 + 28000 = 69000

The total number of laptops manufactured by company P in the year 2014, 2016 and 2017 together

= > 22000 + 28000 + 35000 = 85000

Required % = [(85000 โ 69000)/85000]*100 = 19 % less
