(A) 108

(B) 86

(C) 98

(D) 116

Explanation:

(1/16)0+160+125-1/3+493/2

=1+1+5-1+73

=2+1/5+343

=345+1/5

=1726/5

Explanation:

In 1 day,

Raj can do 1/10 of the work

Mohit can do 1/20 of the work

Together they can do 1/10+1/20= (2+1)/2  = 3/20 of the work in one day

Together they take1/(3/20) days to complete the work =20/3 days

Shortcut:

LCM of 10, 20 is 20

Let the total no. of work to be done is 20 pieces

A can do 20 pieces of work in 10 days. So in 1 day it will do 2 pieces of work

B can do 20 pieces of work in 20 days. So in 1 day it will do 1 piece of work

A and B together will do 1+2=3 pieces of work in a day

No. of days=Total work done/One day efficiency

A and B together will do the work in 20/3 days

Explanation:

Split the number as 272   25

272 lies between 162 and 172

Square root of number ends in 5 ends in 5

Square root is 165

Explanation:

Cost price of 20 books =x

Cost price of 10 books will be x/2

Selling price of 10 books=x

Gain=(x-x/2)/(x/2)*100=100%

Shortcut:

No.of books amount gained as profit on selling 10 books=10/10*100%=100%

Explanation:

1m= 100 cm

HCF of 700,385 and 1295= 35 cm

Explanation:

Total Salary of ten teachers = 1500*10=15000

Sum of salary of 10 teachers and Principal=2000*11=22000

Salary of Principal = 22000-15000=7000

Explanation:

Since 4 players are certainly in the team therefore selection of 7 players is required from the remaining 10 players.

Required number of ways = 10C7 = 10C3= (10*9*8)/(3*2*1)=120

Explanation:

Let the speed of the current = x km/h

∴ Upstream speed = (8 – x) km/h and

Downstream speed = (8 + x) km/h

Time for upstream sail = 48/(8– x) h

and for downstream sail = 48/(8+x)h

∴ 48/(8-x)-48/(8+x)=8

(48(8+x)-48(8-x))/(64-x2)=8

48(8+x-8+x)/(8-x2)=8

12x=64-x2

x2 +12x-64=0

x=4,-16

x=4 km/h (-16 is neglected since it is negative)

Explanation:

X2% *125=√5776+225+324

= 76+225+324

X2= 625*100/125

X=10√5

Explanation:

212= x : y

(1/4) x/(2/9)y=13:12

9x/8y=13/12

x / y=13*8/12*9

y=12*9=108
