a) โ 2

b) 3

c) โ 3

d) โ 1

Distance covered in a day = 60 โ 12.15 = 47.85

Distance covered by the end of third day = 47.85ร3 = 143.55

The number of sarees after 2 years

= 22898

The number of sarees in present year

= 20000

Let, the percentage growth of company

m1รd1= m2 รd2

Zร36 = Zร12+ (Z+20) ร16

36Z = 12Z+ 16Z + 320

36Z โ 28Z = 320

8Z = 320

Z = 40

Number of men employed in the beginning = 40

Length = x

Length increased by 20 % = 120/100 x length = 6x/5

To have equal area breadth should be multiplied by reciprocal of 120/100

Percentage decrease = (b โ 100b/120)/ b x100

= 20b/120b x100

= 16 2/3 %

(or)

To retain the area of rectangle the breadth should be decreased by

= (20ร100)/(100 + 20)

= 2000 / 120

= 16 2/3 %

Sin ฮธ = opposite side / hypotenuse = 4/5

Cosec ฮธ = 1/sin ฮธ = 5/4

Tan ฮธ = opposite side / adjacent side = 4/3

Cot ฮธ = 1/ tan ฮธ =3/4

Cosec ฮธ+ cot ฮธ= 5/4 + ยพ = 8/4 =2

552 + 133 = 722 + x

X = 3025 + 2197 โ 5184

X = 38

Let the number of Pencils broken be x.

Cost Price of 120 Pencils =360

Cost Price of a pencil = 360/120 =Rs. 3

Selling Price of a Pencil = Rs. 4

Profit in selling 1 Pencil = 4 โ 3 = 1

Total Profit = 60

(120 โ x) (1) โ 3x = 60

120 โ x โ 3x = 60

4x = 60

X = 15

Number of Pencils broken = 15

Percentage of Pencils broken = 15/120ร100 = 12.5%

Let the cost price be x. Marked Price = 130/100 ร x

Selling Price = 90/100 ร130/100 ร x = 234

X = 200

Cost Price = Rs. 200
