Given,

= > [8x * (125/100)] / [5x * (120/100)]

= > 5/3 = 5: 3

The share of P, Q and R

= [25000 * 5 + 25000 * (125/100) * 7]: [30000 * 12]: [40000* 5 + 30000* 7]

= > 343750: 360000: 410000

= > 275: 288: 328

891’s = 178200

1’s = 200

The share of Q = 288’s = Rs. 57600

The diagonal of the square = (1/2) * d2 = 288

d2 = 576

Diagonal of the square (d) = 24 cm

The area of triangle = (1/2) * b * h = (1/2) * 24 * 32 = 384 Sq cm

Total possible = 62 = 36

Possibilities of getting a sum of dice is divisible by 5

= > (1, 4), (2, 3), (3, 2), (4, 1), (4, 6), (5, 5), (6, 4) = 7

Required probability = 7/36

Let the speed of boat in still water be x km/hr,

According to the question,

[144/(x – 8)] – [144/(x + 8)] = (9/2)

[(x + 8) – (x – 8)]/[x2 – 64] = (9/2) * (1/144)

(16/[x2 – 64]) = 1/32

x2 – 64 = 512

x2 = 576

x = 24

The speed of boat in still water = 24 km/hr

Directions (6-10): 18 * 1 + 3 = 21

21 * 2 + 6 = 48

48 * 3 + 9 = 153

153 * 4 + 12 = 624

624 * 5 + 15 = 3135

117 + (22 – 1) = 120

120 + (23 – 3) = 125

125 + (24 – 5) = 136

136 + (25 – 7) = 161

161 + (26 – 9) = 216

17 * 3 + 3 = 54

54 * 3 + 3 = 165

165 * 3 + 3 =498

498 * 3 + 3 = 1497

1497 * 3 + 3 = 4494

456 * ½ =228

228 * 2/3 = 152

152 * ¾ = 114

114 * 4/5 = 91.2

91.2 * 5/6 = 76
