The ratio of ages of P, 4 years ago and the ages of Q, 3 years after = 3 : 5 (3x, 5x)

Present ages of P and Q = 3x + 4, 5x â€“ 3

According to the question,

3x + 4 + 5x â€“ 3 = 49

8x + 1 = 49

8x = 48

X = 6

Present age of P = 3x + 4 = 22

The age of P, 3 years after = 25 years

Total probability n(S) = 14C2

Required probability n(E) = 5C2 or 6C2

P(E) = n(E)/n(S) = (5C2 or 6C2) / 14C2

= > 25/91

They meet x hours after 8 a.m.

Distance covered by A in x hours = 30x km

Distance covered by B in (x â€“ 1) hours = 45(x â€“ 1) km

30x + 45(x â€“ 1) = 180

30x + 45x = 180 + 45

75x = 225

X = 3

They meet at 11 a.m.

The investment of Agila, Manoj = 2 : 1

Agilaâ€™s investment = (4/7)* Prithikaâ€™s investment

The investment of Manoj and Prithika = 4 : 7

The investment of Agila, Manoj and Prithika = 8 : 4 : 7

Here, the period is not given. So,

The ratio of investment = The ratio of profit

Total profit = Rs. 123500

19â€™s = 123500

1â€™s = 6500

The share of Manoj = 4â€™s = Rs. 26000

C.I = P*[(1 + (r/100))n â€“ 1]

7881.25 = P*[(1 + 5/100)3 â€“ 1]

7881.25 = P*[(105/100)3 â€“ 1]

7881.25 = P*[(21/20)3 â€“ 1]

7881.25 = P*[(9261/8000) â€“ 1]

7881.25 = P*(1261/8000)

7881.25*(8000/1261) = P

P = Rs. 50000

Let the cost price of the item be x

So,

125 % of x â€“ 90 % of x = 700

35 % of x = 700

35x/100 = 700

x = (700*100)/35

x = 2000

Cost price of the item = Rs. 2000

Maheshâ€™s score = 424 marks, Sanjay = 72 % = Maheshâ€™s score â€“ 8

Sanjay = 424 + 8 = 432 = 72 % of total marks

(72/100)*x = 432

X = 432*(100/72) = 600

Minimum passing marks = 35 % of total marks

= > (35/100)*600 = 210

Mahesh scored 214 marks more than the passing marks.

Volume of the cylinder = Ï€r2h

The ratio of volume of cylinder 1 and 2 = 3 : 4

The ratio of radius of cylinder 1 and 2 = 5 : 6

The ratio between the heights of cylinder 1 to that of cylinder 2

= > [Ï€*(25x2)*h1]/[ Ï€*(36x2)*h2] = (3/4)

= > h1/h2 = (27/25)

= > h1 : h2 = 27 : 25

Total time taken by him = 5 hours 15 min = 5 15/60 = 5 1/4 hours

T = D/S
