A number X is mistakenly divided by 10 instead of being multiplied by 10. What is the percentage error in the result?

A) -99% B) +99%
C) -100% D) +100%

Answer:   A) -99%

Actual value = \inline x\times 10

% Change = \inline \frac{10x-\frac{x}{10}}{10x}\times 100 = \frac{99}{100}\times 100

               = 99% (negative)

Since actual value is greater than the wrong value.

Q:

A farmer divides his herd of k cows among his 4 sons, so that one son gets one half of the herd, the second gets one-fourth, the third gets one-fifth and the fourth gets 9 cows. Then k is equal to ?

A) 160 B) 120
C) 140 D) 180
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 180

Explanation:

Given total number of cows = k
Now, 1st son share = k/2
2nd son share = k/4
3rd son share = k/5
4th son share = 9

(k) + (k/4) + (k/5) + 9 = k
=> k - (19k/20) = 9
=> (20k-19k)/20 = 9
=> k = 180.
