Avg. of B & C â‡’ x; Total of B & C = 2x

Avg. of A & B â‡’ (x â€“ 15); Total of A & B = 2(x â€“ 15)

Difference b/w both the totals â‡’ (A + B) â€“ (B + C)

= 2x â€“ 30 â€“ 2x

A â€“ C = â€“ 30

A â€“ 65 = â€“ 30

A = 35

Sum of squares of first 10 natural nos.

Given â‡’ 13x â€“ 9x = 4x = 320

x = 80

C.P. + S.P. = 13x + 9x

= 22x

=1760

125â†’ 60/64

Hence for 40% loss he will sell 80 apples for Rs 36.

18% copper by weight means,

âˆµÂ  For 18 Kg of copper â‡’ 100 Kg of mixture is required.

âˆ´ Â for 81 Kg of Copper,mixture required = (100/18) * 81 = 450Kg

As the bus is stopping at each 14th Km then total no of stoppage = 90/14 = 6.xx= 6No. of stoppage

Time wasted in 6 no of stoppages = 12*6 = 72 minutes

Time required to travel 90 Km without stoppage = 90/36 = 2 hour 30 minutes

Total time required to travel with stoppages Â Â Â Â Â  = 2hour 30 minutes + 1 hour 12 minutes

= 3 hour 42 minutes

Initial difference = 8 Ã— 8 = 64 km

Total relative speed = 16 kmph

Total time required to catch = 64/16 = 4 hrs.

Total distance = 64 + 8 Ã— 4 = 96 kms
