Q:

Tea worth of Rs. 135/kg & Rs. 126/kg are mixed with a third variety in the ratio 1: 1 : 2. If the mixture is worth Rs. 153 per kg, the price of the third variety per kg will be____?

A) Rs. 169.50 B) Rs.1700
C) Rs. 175.50 D) Rs. 180

Answer:   C) Rs. 175.50



Explanation:

Since first second varieties are mixed in equal proportions, so their average price = Rs. = Rs.130.50

So, Now the mixture is formed by mixing two varieties, one at Rs. 130.50 per kg and the other at say Rs. 'x' per kg in the ratio 2 : 2, i.e., 1 : 1. We have to find 'x'.

Cost of 1 kg tea of 1st kind         Cost of 1 kg tea of 2nd kind

 

 

x-153/22.50 = 1  => x - 153 = 22.50  => x=175.50.

Hence, price of the third variety = Rs.175.50 per kg.

Q:

In a 48 ltr mixture, the ratio of milk and water is 5:3. How much water should be added in the mixture so as the ratio will become 3:5 ?

A) 24 lit B) 16 lit
C) 32 lit D) 8 lit
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 32 lit

Explanation:

Given mixture = 48 lit

Milk in it = 48 x 5/8 = 30 lit

=> Water in it = 48 - 30 = 18 lit

Let 'L' lit of water is added to make the ratio as 3:5

=> 30/(18+L) = 3/5

=> 150 = 54 + 3L

=> L = 32 lit.

Q:

A container contains 120 lit of Diesel. From this container, 12 lit of Diesel was taken out and replaced by kerosene. This process was further repeated for two times. How much diesel is now there in the container ?

A) 88.01 lit B) 87.48 lit
C) 87.51 lit D) 87.62 lit
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 87.48 lit

Explanation:

For these type of problems,

Quantity of Diesel remained = 

Here p = 12 , q = 120

=> 

=> 120 x 0.9 x 0.9 x 0.9

=> 120 x 0.729

= 87.48 lit.

Q:

Manideep purchases 30kg of barley at the rate of 11.50/kg and 20kg at the rate of 14.25/kg. He mixed the two and sold the mixture in the shop. At what price per kg should he sell the mixture to make 30% profit to him ?

A) 15.84 B) 14.92
C) 13.98 D) 16.38
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 16.38

Explanation:

Given, Manideep purchases 30kg of barley at the rate of 11.50/kg nad 20kg at the rate of 14.25/kg.

Total cost of the mixture of barley = (30 x 11.50) + (20 x 14.25)

=> Total cost of the mixture = Rs. 630

Total kgs of the mixture = 30 + 20 = 50kg

Cost of mixture/kg = 630/50 = 12.6/kg

To make 30% of profit

=> Selling price for manideep = 12.6 + 30% x 12.6

=> Selling price for manideep = 12.6 + 3.78 = 16.38/kg.

Q:

There are two mixtures of honey and water in which the ratio of honey and water are as 1:3 and 3:1 respectively. Two litres are drawn from first mixture and 3 litres from second mixture, are mixed to form another mixture. What is the ratio of honey and water in it ?

A) 111:108 B) 11:9
C) 103:72 D) None
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 11:9

Explanation:

From the given data,

The part of honey in the first mixture = 1/4

The part of honey in the second mixture = 3/4

Let the part of honey in the third mixture = x

Then,

1/4             3/4

           x

(3/4)-x     x-(1/4) 

Given from mixtures 1 & 2 the ratio of mixture taken out is 2 : 3

=> 

=> Solving we get the part of honey in the third mixture as 11/20

=> the remaining part of the mixture is water = 9/20

Hence, the ratio of the mixture of honey and water in the third mixture is 11 : 9 .
