Q:

Helpers are needed to prepare for the fete. Each helper can make either 2 large cakes or 35 small cakes per hour. The kitchen is available for 3 hours and 20 large cakes and 700 small cakes are needed. How many helpers are required?

A) 10 B) 15
C) 20 D) 25

Answer:   A) 10



Explanation:

20 large cakes will require the equivalent of 10 helpers working for one hour. 700 small cakes will require the equivalent of 20 helpers working for one hour. This means if only one hour were available we would need 30 helpers. But since three hours are available we can use 10 helpers.

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.
