At 8% rate interest will be = 248 Rs.

At 6% rate interest amount = 186 Rs.

% of people who read newspaper

= 30 Ã— 2/5

= 12%

Total number of female who read newspaper A

= 12/100 Ã— 20000

= 2400

Males reading newspaper B in terms of total people

= 20/1 Ã— 2/5

= 8%

Male reading newspaper D in terms of % of total people

= 12 Ã— 1/3

= 4%

Difference = (8 â€“ 4)% â‡’ 4% of total people

â‡’ 4/100 Ã— 20000

= 800

No. of female in terms of % of total no. of people

= 16/8 Ã— 3 = 6% of total

Females reading newspaper E = 14%

Hence

â‡’ (14 â€“ 6) / 6 â‡’ 133.33

â„“bh = 12â„“ Ã— 1.2b Ã— hâ€™

h / 1.44 = h^’

0.69444h = hâ€™

=30.55%

Area of base of cone = 38.5 = Ï€rÂ²

r = 3.5 cm

Vol. cone â‡’ â…“ Ï€rÂ²h

154 = â…“Ã— 38.5h

h = 12 cm

â„“ = âˆš(h2 + r2 )

â„“ = 12.5 cm

C.S.A. of cone = Ï€r â„“

= 22/7 Ã— 3.5 Ã— 12.5

= 11 Ã— 12.5

= 137.5

If 2 cm is width of the canvas then total length required

= 137.5/2 = 68.75 cm

Vol. of sphere = 4/5 Ï€rÂ³

Radius of conical bullet = râ€™ = r/2

Height of conical bullet = h = r/2 = r/4

No. of bullets = n

n = 64

= 12 cm

Min difference between these two chord = 16 â€“ 12 = 4cm

â„“b = 15â„“bâ€™

.66b = bâ€™

Reduction in the breadth is 33.33%
