Directions (Q. 1 – 5):

Explanation:

Number of employees in HR in X = 24/100 x 42000 = 10080

Number of employees in HR in Y = 10/100 x 36000 = 3600

Total number of employees in HR in both the companies = 10080 + 3600 = 13680

Number of employees in Marketing in X = 30/100 x 42000 = 12600

Number of employees in Marketing in Y = 12/100 x 36000 = 4320

Total number of employees in Marketing in both the companies = 12600 + 4320 = 16920

Required percentage = (13680/16920) x 100 = 80.85% = 81 %

Explanation:

Total number of female employees of company X in HR and IT

= (¼) x (24/100) x 42000 + (2/3) x (18/100) x 42000

= 2520 + 5040

= 7560

total number of female employees of company Y in Sales, Marketing and Administration

= (1/3) x (26/100) x 36000 + (½) x (12/100) x 36000 + (2/3) x (22/100) x 36000

= 3120 + 2160 + 5280

= 10560

Required sum = 7560 + 10560 = 18120

Explanation:

Total number of employees in IT and Sales departments together of company X

= (18 + 12)/100 x 42000

= 12600

Total number of employees in Marketing and Administration departments together of company Y

= (12 + 22)/100 x 36000

= 12240

Required ratio = 12600 : l12240 = 35 : 34

Explanation:

Number of females in Marketing and Administration departments together of company X

= (3/8) x (30/100) x 42000 + (½) x (16/100) x 42000

= 4725 + 3360

= 8085

Number of females in IT and Sales department together of company Y

= (5/9) x (30/100) x 36000 + (1/3) x (26/100) x 36000

= 6000 + 3120

= 9120

Required percentage = [(9120 – 8085)/9120] x 100

= (1035/9120) x 100 = 11.34% less = 11 % less

Explanation:

Total number of females in company X

= (¼) x (24/100) x 42000 + (2/3) x (18/100) x 42000 + (1/3) x (12/100) x 42000 + (3/8) x (30/100) x 42000 + (½) x (16/100) x 42000

= 2520 + 5040 + 1680 + 4725 + 3360

= 17325

Total number of females in company Y

= (4/9) x (10/100) x 36000 + (5/9) x (30/100) x 36000 + (1/3) x (26/100) x 36000 + (½) x (12/100) x 36000 + (2/3) x (22/100) x 36000

= 1600 + 6000 + 3120 + 2160 + 5280

= 18160

Required difference = 18160 – 17325 = 835

Direction (Q. 6 – 10)

Explanation:

Cost price of article S

= 8000* 120/100

= Rs. 9600

Total cost price of article S= 9600 + 500= Rs. 10100

Selling price of article

= 10100* (88/100)

= Rs. 8888

Explanation:

Total cost price = 6000 + x

Selling price = (6000+x) * 80/100

= 4800 + 4x/5

Total cost price after increase= 6000+ x+ 100 = 6100+x

Selling price after increase= (6100 + x)* 80/100

= > 4880 + 4x/5

So,

= > 4800+ 4x/5 + 4880 + 4x/5 = 11000

= > 9680 + 8x/5= 11000

= > 8x/5= 1320

= > x= 1320*5/8

= > x = Rs. 825

Explanation:

Total cost price of article U

= 12000*100/75

= Rs. 16000

Marked price of article U

= 12000*100/50

= Rs. 24000

Total cost price after increase in transportation cost

= 16000 + 300

=Rs. 16300

In order to earn 10% profit

Selling price

= 16300* 110/100

= Rs. 17930

Discount amount to be allowed

= 24000 – 17930

= Rs. 6070

Explanation:

Total cost price of T = 8000 + 300 = Rs. 8300

Selling price of T = 8300 *115/100 = Rs. 9545

Selling price of P = Rs 9545 * 60/100 = Rs. 5727

Profit earned on article P = 5727 – (4500 +120)

= Rs. 1107

Explanation:

Cost of transportation of article Q

= 500 *(120/100) = Rs. 600

Total cost price of article Q= 5500*(100/110) = Rs. 5000

Cost price without transportation cost= 5000 – 600 = Rs. 4400

Profit = 5500 – 4400= Rs. 1100

Required percentage= 1100*100/4400 = 25%
