Q:

Out of the five integral numbers C is the average of A and D.  B is greater than C and less than D.Also B is the average of A and E . The middle most number in the sequence 

A) A B) B
C) C D) D

Answer:   B) B

Explanation:

     D _  C  _ A          --------(1)

     D > B > C           --------(2)

from (1) and (2)

     D > B > C > A   ---------(3)

 

Again      E _ B _ A

But B > A, from (3)

So          E > D > B > C > A      [ Since B is the average of E and A so it is eqidistant from both E and A]

Q:

The average monthly salary of the employees of a firm is Rs.60 out of the employees 12 officers get an average of Rs.400 per month and the rest an average of Rs. 56 per month , Find the number of emp

Answer

Actual average salary of 12 officers = 400


\inline \fn_jvn \therefore Total salary of 12 officers = 400 x 12 = 4800


Average of these 12  officers as a whole =60


Total salary of 12 officers as a whole = 60 x 12 = 720


The total salary of rest  = 4800 - 720 = 4080


Difference in average of the rest of officers  = 60 - 56 = 4


Rest of the officers = \inline \fn_jvn \frac{4080}{4}=1020


Total number of employees = 1020 + 12 = 1032

Q:

The mean temperature of Monday to Wednesday was 37C and of Tuesday to Thursday was 34C . If the temperature on Thursday was (4/5) th that of Monday, the temperature on Thursday was?

Answer

\inline \fn_jvn M+T+W =(37\times 3)^{0}=111^{0}C   -----------(1)


\inline \fn_jvn T+W+Th=(34\times 3)^{0}=102^{0}C


\inline \fn_jvn \Rightarrow T+W+\frac{4}{5}M = 102^{0}C                --------------(2)


(1) - (2) gives


\inline \fn_jvn \frac{1}{5} th of temperature on Monday = 


\inline \fn_jvn \Rightarrow Temperature on Monday = \inline \fn_jvn 45^{0}C


\inline \fn_jvn \therefore Temperature on Thursday = \inline \fn_jvn \frac{4}{5}\times 45^{0}=36^{0}

Q:

A batsman makes a score of 87 runs in the 17th inning and thus increases his average by 3. Find his average after 17th inning?

Answer

Let the average after 7th inning = x


Then average after 16th inning = x - 3


\inline \fn_jvn \therefore 16(x-3)+87 = 17x


\inline \fn_jvn \therefore  x = 87 - 48 = 39
