Q:

In a competitive examination, the average marks for the entire examination was 60 marks. If 20% of the applicants scored 85 marks and 25% scored 95 marks. What was the average marks of the remaining applicants in the examination ?

A) 60 B) 52
C) 45 D) 35

Answer:   D) 35



Explanation:

Let the total applicants be 100
Then, 20% got 85 marks

i.e 20  85 = 1700

and 25% got 95 marks

i.e 25  95 = 2375

Now, the remaining applicants are 55 and let the average marks scored by them be x.

 2375 + 1700 + 55 x  =  60  100

 6000 - 4075 = 55x
 55x=1925
 x= 
x=35.

 

 

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.
