5 years ago, the ratio of age of the father and his son = 3: 1(3x, x)

7 years hence, the ratio of age of the father and his son = 9: 4

According to the question,

(3x + 12)/(x + 12) = (9/4)

12x + 48 = 9x + 108

3x = 60

x = 20

The present age of the father and his son = (3x + 5), (x + 5) = 65, 25

The average Present age of the father, mother, son and daughter = 40

Total Present age of the father, mother, son and daughter = 40*4 = 160

Total present age of the mother and her daughter = 160 â€“ 90 = 70

Let the present age of mother and daughter be A and B respectively,

A + B = 70 —Ã (1)

A â€“ B = 34 —Ã (2)

By solving the equation (1) and (2),

A = 52, B = 18

The present age of the daughter = 18 years

The share of P, Q and R

= > [6x*5 + (6x â€“ 4000)*7]: [8x*12]: [7x*7 + (7x + 2000)*5]

= 130: 192: 173

= > [30x + 42x â€“ 28000]: [96x]: [49x + 35x + 10000] = 130: 192: 173

= > [72x â€“ 28000]: [96x] : [84x + 10000] = 130 : 192 : 173

According to the question,

= > 96x/(84x + 10000) = (192/173)

= > 173x = 168x + 20000

= > 5x = 20000

= > x = 4000

The share of R = 7x = Rs. 28000

Let the cost price be x,

SP = 600*(80/100) = Rs. 480

Profit (P) = SP â€“ CP = 480 – x

The cost price of the article is increased by 10 %, and then the profit becomes half while comparing with the original profit

According to the question,

P/2 = 480 â€“ [x*(110/100)]

(480 â€“ x)/2 = 480 â€“ 11x/10

(480 â€“ x)/2 = (4800 â€“ 11x)/10

2400 â€“ 5x = 4800 â€“ 11x

6x = 2400

X = 400

The cost price of the article = Rs. 400

Three pipes A, B and C can fill a tank in 12 hours.

A, B and Câ€™s 1 hour work = 1/12

A, B and Câ€™s 4 hour work = 4/12 = 1/3

Remaining work= 1 – (1/3) = 2/3

The remaining part will be filled by A and B in 12 hours. Then,

= > (2/3) *(A+B) = 12

= > (A+B)â€™s whole work= 12*(3/2) = 18 hrs

(A + B)â€™s 1 hour work= 1/18

A, B and Câ€™s 1 hour work = 1/12

Câ€™s 1 hour work = (A+B+C) – (A+B)

= > (1/12) â€“ (1/18)

= > 1/36

C can fill the tank in 36 hours.

Total work = men*days

Total units of work = 18*10 = 180 units

Work done in 4 days = 18*4 = 72 units

Remaining work = 180 â€“ 72 = 108 units

Let the number of men left after 4 days be x,

According to the question,

108/9 = 18 â€“ x

12 = 18 â€“ x

X = 6 men

After 4 days from the start of the work, 6 men left the job.

Direction (6-10) :

Total investment of Moni in scheme C

= > 74000*(60/100)

Total investment of Priya in scheme C

= > 74000*(40/100)

The difference between the interest earned by Moni and Priya from scheme C after 3 years = Rs. 3552

= > 74000*(60/100)*3*(r/100) – 74000*(40/100)*3*(r/100) = 3552

= > [(74000*3*r)/(100*100)]*(60 â€“ 40) = 3552

= > (74000*3*r*20)/10000 = 3552

= > r = 35520000/(74000*3*20) = 8 %

Total investment of Moni in Scheme A

= > 82000*(65/100) = Rs. 53300

Total investment of Priya in Scheme A

= > 82200 â€“ 53300 = Rs. 28700

The interest earned by Moni in Scheme A

= > 53300*(115/100)*(115/100) â€“ 53300

= > 70489.25 â€“ 53300 = Rs. 17189.25

The interest earned by Priya in Scheme A

= > 28700*(115/100)*(115/100) â€“ 28700

= > 37955.75 â€“ 28700 = Rs. 9255.75

Required sum = 17189.25 + 9255.75 = Rs. 26445

The amount invested by Moni in Scheme E = The amount invested by Moni in Scheme P

= > 60000*(48/100) = Rs. 28800

The total interest earned by Moni in Scheme E and P together = Rs. 11808

According to the question,

= > 28800*[(1 + r/100)2 â€“ 1] + (28800*2*r)/100 = 11808

= > {[28800*(100 + r)2]/(100*100)} â€“ 28800 + 576r = 11808

= > (288/100)*(100 + r)2 + 576r = 40608

= > 288*[(100 + r)2 + 200r] = 4060800

= > (10000 + 200r + r2 + 200r) = 4060800/288

= > r2 + 400r + 10000 = 14100

= > r2+ 400r â€“ 4100 = 0

= > (r â€“ 10) (r + 410) = 0

= > r = 10, -410

Rate of interest per annum(r) = 10 %

The amount invested by Moni in scheme D

= > 90000*(52/100) = Rs. 46800

The amount invested by Priya in Scheme B

= > 66000*(45/100) = Rs. 29700

The total interest earned by Moni and Priya in Scheme D and Scheme B after one year,

= > 46800*(106/100)*(106/100) â€“ 46800 + (29700*15*1)/100

= > 52584.48 â€“ 46800 + 4455

=>5784.48 + 4455

= > Rs. 10239.48

Required average = (10239.48/2) = Rs. 5119.74

The amount invested by Moni in scheme A, C and D together

= > 82000*(65/100) + 74000*(60/100) + 90000*(52/100)

= > 53300 + 44400 + 46800 = Rs. 144500

The amount invested by Priya in Scheme B, E and F together

= > 66000*(45/100) + 60000*(52/100) + 85000*(46/100)

= > 29700 + 31200 + 39100 = Rs. 100000

Required ratio = 144500: 100000 = 289: 200
