10) What is the ratio of swathiโs monthly income to sakthiโs monthly income?

a) 1: 2

b) 2: 3

c) 3: 4

d) 4: 5

Length of the train = 750 m

Length of the bridge = 150 m

Total distance = 750 + 150 = 900

Time = 45 sec

Speed = Distance/ Time = 900 / 45 * 18 / 5 = 60 kmph

As per given data,

ฮฑ + ฮฒ = -b/a = -(-3)/2 =ย  3/2

ฮฑฮฒ = 2/2 = 1

For the new equations roots are ฮฑ2, ฮฒ2

โด Sum of the roots ฮฑ2 + ฮฒ2 = (ฮฑ + ฮฒ)2 – 2 ฮฑฮฒ = (3/2)2 โ 2(1) = 9/4 โ 2 = 1/4

Product of the roots = ฮฑ2ฮฒ2 = (ฮฑฮฒ) = 12 =1

Required equation = x2 โ (Sum of roots) * (products of the roots) = 0

x2 โ (1/4)x +1 = 0

4x2 โ x + 4 = 0

There is a property of lines joining mid-points of two sides of a triangle.
Property – Line joining the mid-points of two sides is always parallel to the third side.

If you let length of the sides to be AB, BC and AC, then

BE = CE = 1/2BC

AF = CF = 1/2AC

From the property, we can say that DE is parallel to AC. Similarly, EF is parallel to AB and DF is parallel to BC.

If you draw the figure and see, then you will notice that 3 parallelograms, AFED, FDEC and FDBE.

You can thus equate the parallel sides and we get FD = EB, EF = BD and DE = CF which are halves of the parallel sides.

Now if you check the sides of the four triangles, all of will have the same dimensions. Thus total area of ABC is sum of the areas of the 4 triangles.

Total number (x1 + x2 + x3 + x4+ โฆโฆโฆ.. x50) = 50

Average of 50 numbers = 100

Sum of Total numbers = 100 * 50 = 5000

If two numbers are expelled 50 + 80 = 130

(5000 โ 130)/50 = 4870/ 50 = 97.40

S. I1 โ S.I2 = ((PNR1)/ 100) โ ((PNR2)/100)

S. I1 โ S.I2 = PN/100 (R1 โ R2)

250 = 12500 * 2/100 (R1 โ R2)

R1 โ R2 = 25*100/ 12500*2 = ยผ = 0.25

AB =12 cm

BC = 10cm

AC = 6 cm

Median of vertex A = AD

BD = DC = ยฝ (BD) = ยฝ (10) = 5 cm

By Apollonius theorem

AB2 + AC2 = 2 (AD2 + BD2)

122 + 62 = 2 (AD2 + 52)

144 + 36 = 2(AD2 + 52)

Direction (8-10) :

Total income monthly = 2.5 lakhs

Total income annually = 2.5* 12 * (40/100) = 1 lakhs

10% hike on monthly salary = 110000

New salary of Ramesh Annually = 110000 * 12 = 13.2 lakhs

Other annual salary = 30 * (60/100) = 18 lakhs

New annual salary of the family = 13. 2 + 18 lakhs = 31.2 lakhs

Highest salary of this family = 2.5 * 12 * 40/100 = 12 lakh

Lowest salary of this family = 2.5 * 12 * 15/ 100= 4.5 lakh

12 โ 4.5 = 7.5 lakh / 12 = 62,000

Sakthiโs Monthly income = 2.5 * (20/100) = 50000

Swathiโs monthly income = 2.5 * 15/100 = 37500

Ratio of swathiโs monthly ratio to sakthiโs monthly salary

= 37500 : ย 50000

= 3 : 4
