Q:

56% of 225 + 20% of 150 = ? - 109

 

Find the value of '?' in the above equation

A) 264 B) 220
C) 241 D) None
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 264

Explanation:

Given 56% of 225 + 20% of 150 = ? - 109

we know that a% of b = b% of a

Now,

225% of 56 + 20% of 150 = ? - 109

200% of 56 + 25% of 56 + 20% of 150 = ? - 109

112 + 14 + 30 = ? - 109

? = 112 + 14 + 30 + 109

? = 264

Q:

5% of a number is 25% more than another number. The difference between the numbers is 96. Then find the value of the numbers?

A) 102 & 6 B) 99 & 3
C) 104 & 8 D) 100 & 4
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 100 & 4

Explanation:

Let the first number be x and the second number be y.

Given

5% of x = (25% of y) + y

=> 5x/100 = 5y/4

=> x = 25y ......(1)

and also given that, x - y = 96

=> x = 96 + y .....(2)

From (1)&(2)

25y = 96 + y

=> 24y = 96

=> y = 4

From (1)

x = 96 + 4 = 100

Hence, the numbers are 100 & 4.
