Q:

# A person was asked to state his age in years. His reply was , "Take my age 3 years hence, multiply it by 3 and subtract 3 times my age 3 years ago and you will know how old I am." What was the age of the person ?

 A) 18 B) 20 C) 24 D) 30

Explanation:

Let the present age of person be   x years.

Then, 3(x + 3) - 3(x - 3 ) = x   <=> (3x + 9) - (3x - 9) = x  <=> x = 18..

Q:

2/3 as a decimal

 A) 0.47 B) 6.77 C) 0.67 D) 0.07

Explanation:

To convert a fraction into decimal, just take the number on top which we called the numerator and divide it by the number at the bottom which we called the denominator.

2/3

How it comes :

÷ 0 bring down the decimal point.

20 ÷ 6 and carry the remainder 2 to make 20

20 ÷ 6 and carry the remainder 2 to make 20

20 ÷ 6 and carry the remainder 2 to make 20

etc...

This gives the recurring decimal 0.6666...

If we round off to two decimals , then it becomes 0.67.

Hence, decimal fraction of 2/3 = 0.67.

Q:

3/8 as a decimal

 A) 1.375 B) 2.375 C) 0.375 D) 3.75

Explanation:

Expressing 3/8 as a decimal fraction:

We can convert 3/8 into a decimal fraction by just dividing 3 by 8 or making 3 into 8 parts.

Then, it is 3/8 = 0.375 as a decimal fraction.

Other Method::

3/8 as a Decimal :

In this we should convert the denominator into 10, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000,... to make it simple.

Now to make 8 into 1000, we multiply numerator and denominator with 125

=> (3 x 125)/(8 x 125) = 375/1000 = 0.375.

Q:

1/8 as a decimal?

 A) 0.125 B) 0.225 C) 0.325 D) 0.425

Explanation:

1/8 to convert into decimal,

Find an equivalent fraction with a denominator of a power of 10.

In this case, we will use 1000.

This can now be written as a decimal with 3 decimal places (because we have thousandths.

i.e, 0.125

Hence,

Q:

125 over 1000 in Simplest Form?

 A) 2/9 B) 1/8 C) 3/8 D) 4/7

Explanation:

125 over 1000 in Simplest Form means $\frac{\mathbf{125}}{\mathbf{1000}}$ in its simple fraction form.

Now, to get the simplest form of 125/1000, find the HCF or GCD of both numerator and denominator i.e, 125 and 1000.

HCF of 125, 1000 = 125

Then, divide both numerator and denominator by 125

i.e,

Hence, $\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{8}}$ is the simplest form of 125 over 1000.

Q:

Express 0.875 and 0.375 as a Fraction.

 A) 3/11 & 7/11 B) 7/9 & 9/13 C) 7/8 & 3/8 D) 7/9 & 9/11

Explanation:

Given 0.875 and 0.375

0.875 ::

After decimal point there are 3 digits 875

Now, mutiply and divide 0.875 with 1000

Similarly,

0.375 ::

After decimal point there are 3 digits 375

Now, mutiply and divide 0.375 with 1000
