Q:

The price of commodity X increases by 40 paise every year, while the price of commodity Y increases  by 15 paise every year. If in 2001, the price of commodity X was Rs. 4.20 and that of Y was Rs. 6.30, in which year commodity X will cost 40 paise more than the commodity?

A) 2010 B) 2011
C) 2012 D) 2013

Answer:   B) 2011



Explanation:

Suppose commodity X wil cost 40 paise more than Y after Z  years. Then,

        (4.20 + 0.40Z) - (6.30 + 0.15Z) = 0.40

=>  0.25Z = 0.40 + 2.10  => Z= 2.50/0.25 = 10

Therefore, X will cost 40 paise more than Y 10  years after 2001 . i.e in 2011

Q:

5/8 as a Decimal Equals To

A) 0.625 B) 0.541
C) 0.258 D) 0.147
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 0.625

Explanation:

5/8 is Nothing but to divide 5 into 8 parts.

 

 

As 5 is smaller than 8, the quotient starts with a decimal point to make 5 as 50 to be divisible by 8. (0.)

 

 

Now 50 goes for 6 times in 8 leaving a remainder 2. (0.6)

 

  

Again 2 is smaller than 8, As it already has decimal point in the quotient, now 2 becomes 20.

 

  

Now 20 goes for 2 times in 8 leaving a remainder 4. (0.62)

 

  

Again 4 is smaller than 8, As it already has decimal point in the quotient, now 4 becomes 40.

 

 

Now 40 goes for 5 times in 8 leaving a remainder 0. (0.625)

 

 

Therefore, the decimal value of 58 is 0.625.

 

Now find a decimal value of 1117 and Discuss your at Discuss.

Q:

If two fractions, each of which has a value between 0 and 1, are multiplied together, the product will be :

A) always greater than either of the original fractions B) always less than either of the original fractions
C) sometimes greater and sometimes less than either of the original fractions D) remains the same
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) always less than either of the original fractions

Explanation:

We can easily Answer this by taking some values.

 

The question states that the two fractions, each have values between 0 and 1.

Let us say one of the fraction is 1/2 and the other fraction is 1/3 .

The product of the two fractions is 1/2 x 1/3 = 1/6 .
 is lesser than both 1/2  and 1/3 .

So, the correct answer is that the product is always less than either of the original fractions

i.e remaining pages =  1-613=713


in 2nd week he read 59th of it

i.e 59×713=35117
Remaining pages after 2nd week = 713-35117=28117

But given remaining pages after 2nd week = 100

 

28x117=100

--> x = 418 

 The total pages in the book are 418
