Direction (1-5) :

P = Rs. 20000, r = 8 %, n = 2 years

Compound interest:

20000*(8/100) = 1600

21600*(8/100) = 1728

C.I = 1600 + 1728 = Rs. 3328

Total amount invested by Pavithra = 20000 + 3328 = Rs. 23328

The principle amount invested by Sree = 15000*(5/3) = Rs. 25000

Total amount received by Sree = Rs.28090

Time period (n) = 4 years

Amount = P*(1 + (r/100))n

28090= 25000*((100 + r)/100)2

(2809/2500) = ((100 + r)/100)2

(53/50) = (100 + r)/100

106 = 100 + r

Rate of interest (r) = 6 %

The total principle amount invested by Sindhu = (1/2)*20000 = Rs. 10000

Rate of interest (r) = 5 %

Total amount received by Sindhu = Rs. 11025

Amount = P*(1 + (r/100))n

11025 = 10000*((100 + 5)/100)n

11025/10000 = (21/20)n

441/400 = (21/20)n

(21/20)2 = (21/20)n

Number of years (n) = 2 years

Rate of interest for Mahi = (5/1)*2 = 10 %

Time period (n) = 3 years, C.I = Rs. 9930

C.I = P*[(1 + (r/100))n – 1]

9930 = P*[(110/100)3 – 1]

9930 = P*[(11/10)3 – 1]

9930 = P*[(1331/1000) – 1]

9930 = P*[331/1000]

P = 9930*(1000/331) = Rs. 30000

Required average = (20000 + 15000 + 30000 + 40000)/4 = 105000/4

= > Rs. 26250

Total amount = 40000*(104/100)*(104/100)*(104/100)*(104/100)

= > 46794.342

Compound interest = 46794.342 – 40000 = Rs. 6794.342

Direction (6-10) :

Let C takes x hours to fill the cistern,

According to the question:

4/24 + 4/x + 5/x + 5/30 = 1

=> 1/6 + 9/x + 1/6 = 1

=> 2/6 + 9/x = 1

=> 1/3 + 9/x = 1

=> 9/x = 1 – (1/3)

=> 9/x = 2/3

=> x = 27/2 = 13 ½ hours

C alone can fill the cistern in 13 ½ hours

Let D should be closed after x hours,

x/30 + x/45 + 20/45 = 1

=> (3x + 2x)/90 = 1 – (4/9)

=> 5x/90 = 5/9

=> x = 10 hours

D should be closed after 10 hours

C takes half of the time taken by F to fill the cistern

= > C : F = 1 : 2

F takes half of the time taken by B to fill the cistern

= > F : B = 1 : 2

The ratio of C, F and B taken to fill the cistern = 1 : 2 : 4 (x, 2x, 4x)

According to the question:

1/x + 1/2x + 1/4x = 1/48

= > (4 + 2 + 1)/4x = 1/48

= > 7/4x = 1/48

= > 4x = 48*7

= > x = 84 hours

Time taken by F to fill the cistern = 2*84 = 168 hours

Part of the tank filled in 2 hours = 1/24 + 1/30 = 3/40

= > Part of the tank filled in 26 hours = (3/40)*13 = 39/40

Remaining part = 1 – 39/40 = 1/40

Time taken by A to fill the remaining part,

= > (1/40)*24 = 3/5

Total time = 26 + 3/5 = 26 (3/5) hours

Let the time taken by F to fill the cistern be x,

According to the question,

(1/24) + (1/30) + (1/x) = (1/8)

(1/x) = (1/8) – [(1/24) + 1/30)]

(1/x) = (1/8) – (3/40)

(1/x) = 2/40

1/x = 1/20

F alone to fill the cistern is 20 hours
