Direction (1-5) :

Amount invested by Hari = 300000 * 25/100 * 60/100 = 45000

Amount invested by Elango = 300000 * 20/100 * 50/100 = 30000

Profit ratio of Hari and Elango

= (45000*1+45000 * 120/100 * 1): (30000*1+30000*70/100*1)

= (45000+54000): (30000+21000)

= 99000: 51000

= 33: 17

Hari’s share = 33/50 of total share = Rs.66000

Total share = 66000/33 * 50 = Rs.1 lakh

Amount invested by Nitish = 300000*15/100 * 2/3 = 30000

Amount invested by Rahul = (x+5000)

Profit ratio of Nitish and Rahul = 24000: (39000-24000)

= 24000: 15000 = 8: 5

According to the question,

(30000 * 12): [(x+5000)*9] = 8/5

30000*12/(x+5000) *9 =8/5

15000/(x+5000) = 3/5

75000 = 3x + 15000

3x = 60000 => x= 20000

Total amount invested by Rahul = 20000 + 5000 = 25000

Required percentage = [25000/(300000*22/100)]*100

= (25000/66000)*100

= 38 % (Approx.)

Profit ratio of Sahul, Nitish and Rahul

= [300000 * (18/100)*(45/100)] : [300000 * (15/100)*(30/100)] : [300000* (22/100)*(54/100)]

= (18*45) : (15*30) : (22*54)

= (3*45) : (15*5) : (22*9)

= 45 : 25 : 66

Interest earned by Hari in SI = [(300000 * 25/100)*15*2/100)

= 75000*30/100 = Rs. 22500

Amount received by Sahul in CI = (300000*18/100) (1+10/100)2

= 54000 * (11/10 * 11/10)

= Rs. 65340

Interest received by Sahul in CI = 65340 – 54000

= Rs. 11340

Total interest = 225000 + 11340 = Rs. 33840

Required percentage = [(25-20)/25]*100 = (5/25)*100

= 20%

Direction (6-10) : 44 * 2 – 0.5 = 87.5

87.5 * 4 – 1 = 349

349 * 6 – 2 = 2092

2092 *8 – 4 = 16732 (not 16730)

64 * 5 = 320

320 /4 = 80

80 * 5 = 400

400 /4 = 100

100 * 5 =500 (not 450) 1258/2 + 1 = 630

630/2 + 1 =316

316/2 +1 = 159

159/2 + 1 =80.5 (not 80)
