Do It Yourself!

• The difference between SI and CI on a sum of money lent at the interest rate of 20% for two years is Rs. 500. Calculate the principal amount.
• In 5 L of solution, the ratio of water to other contents in 3: 5. Find the quantity of other contents in 150 L of solution.

1. Selling Price at shop A = Selling Price at shop B

Selling Price at shop B = 1200 – (20/100)*1200

= 1200 – 240

= Rs. 960

960 = 1000 – (x/100)*1000

960 = 1000 – 10x

10x = 40

X = 4%

1. Cost price of Macaroni mixture = (300*50) + (35*350)

= 15000 + 12250

= 27250

Selling Price for Macaroni Mixture = 85* 325

= Rs. 27625

Profit percentage = [(27625-27250)/27250] *100

= (375/27250) *100

= 1.3%

1. 780 days = 111 weeks + 3 odd days

Therefore it is Tuesday.

1. Angle traced by hour hand at 7:45 pm = (360/12) * (31/4) = 232.5o

Angle traced by minute hand in 45 min = (360/60) * 45 = 270o

Required angle = 37.5 degrees

1. Tap A fills 1/2 of the tank in one hour.

Tap B fills 1/3 of the tank in one hour.

Tap C empties 1/3 of the tank in one hour.

Thus, in 1 hour [(1/2) + (1/3) – (1/3)] i.e. 1/2 of the tank is filled.

If all the three taps are opened together, the time taken to fill the tank = 2 hours

1. (50/80)*100 = 62.5%
2. (360/12) * 6 = 180o
3. Let the distance between home and school be x km.

For X, Time = x/ 10

For Y, Time = x/15

x/10 – x/15 = 60/60

x = 30 km
