Directions (1-5) :

? = (24.96)2 / (34.11 / 20.05) + 67.96 – 89.11

≈ (25)2 / (34 / 20) + 67.96 – 89

≈ 625 / 1.7 + 68 – 89

≈ 367 + 68 – 89 ≈ 346

0.98% of 7824 + 4842 / 119.46 – ? = 78

or, 1% of 7824 + 4842 / 120 – 78 = ?

or, ? = [(1 × 7824) / 100] + (4842 / 120) – 78

≈ 78 + 40 – 78 = 40

[(41.99)2 – (18.04)2] / ? = (13.11)2 – 138.99

or, [(42)2 – (18)2] / ? = (13)– 139

or, [(42 + 18) (42 – 18)] / ? = 169 – 139

or, 60 × 24 / ? = 30

or, ? = 60 × 24 / 30 = 48

[(12 × 2360) / 100] + [(105 × 1200) / 100] = [(22 × ?) / 100] + 1421

or, [(22 × ?) / 100] = 1260 + 283.20 – 1421 ≈ 1543 – 1421 = 122

? = [(122 × 100) / 22] = [(122 × 50) / 11] = 11 × 50 = 550

√(2025.11) × √(256.04) + √(399.95) × √? = 33.98 × 40

or, √(2025) × √(256) + √(400) × √? = 1360

or, 20 × √? = 1360 – 720 = 640

or,  √? = (640 / 20) = 32

? = 32 × 32 = 1024

Directions (6-10) :

After a year dhaswanth gets salary = 500*6 = Rs 3,000 [Since dhaswanth was for 6 months in the business with each month earning 500] So 10% of total profit after a year = 3,000

Total profit = Rs 30,000

Ashwin invested for 12 months, Bhuvan for 12, and dhaswanth for 6 months

Ratio of profit shares =

4*12 : 3*12 : 6*6 = 4 : 3 : 3

Profit left after deducting salary of dhaswanth = 30,000 – 3,000 = 27,000

So share of Ashwin = [4/(4+3+3)] * 27,000 = 10800

(x+400)*90/100*85/100+540 =x

x = 3600

MP = 3600+400 = 4000

Seller sells Milk at Rs.20,18 and 16 respectively for three times

= 25*(20+18+16) = 1350

108 = x(1-25/100)3

x =256 liter

He sold entire 256 at Rs.15 =256*15 = 3840

Cost price = 256*20 = 5120

profit = 5190-5120 = 70

In the year 2013 = 2x: 3x: 4x

In the year 2014 = 3y:5y:7y

3y-5/5y-5 = ½

y = 5

Employees in 2014 = 15, 25, 35

Now 2x-n = 15

3x-n =25

x =10

Employees in 2013 = 20, 30, 40

No of left in 2014 = 3*5 = 15

Interest received by Vimal from Kamal = 10% of half of Rs.150000

= 10% of Rs. 75000 = Rs.7500.

Amount received by Vimal per annum for being a working partner = 4500 x 12 = Rs.54000

Let ‘P’ be the part of the remaining profit that Vimal receives as his share.

So, total income of Vimal = (Rs.7500 + Rs.54000 + Rs. P )

Total income of Kamal = only his share from the remaining profit = ‘P’,

as  Vimal and Kamal share the remaining profit equally.

We know that income of Vimal = Thrice the income of Kamal

So, (7500 + 54000 + P ) = 3(P)

61500+P=3P

2P=61500

P = 30750

Thus, the total profit = 3P + Rs.54000

= 3(30750) + 54000

= Rs.146250.
