If the length of a rectangle is increased by 10% and the area is unchanged , then its corresponding breadth must be decreased by?

Answer

Suppose length = 100m and breadth = x m

Area = 100 m

New length = 110m and breadth = (x-y% of x)

Then, $\inline&space;110\times&space;(x-\frac{y}{100}x)=100\times&space;x$

$\inline&space;\Rightarrow$ $\inline&space;110\times&space;(1-\frac{y}{100})=100$

$\inline&space;\Rightarrow$ $\inline&space;1-\frac{y}{100}=\frac{100}{110}$

$\inline&space;\Rightarrow&space;\frac{y}{100}=1-\frac{100}{110}=\frac{1}{11}$

$\inline&space;y=\frac{100}{11}=9\frac{1}{10}$%

From a salary of an officer, 10% is deducted as house rent, 15% of the rest he spend on children's education and 10% of the balance he spends on clothes. Then, he is left with Rs. 4131. Find his total salary?

Answer

Suppose his total salary be Rs.x, then

90% of 85% of 90% of x = 4131

$\inline&space;\Rightarrow&space;\frac{90}{100}\times&space;\frac{85}{100}\times&space;\frac{90}{100}\times&space;x=4131$

$\inline&space;\therefore&space;x=\frac{4131\times&space;100\times&space;100\times&space;100}{90\times&space;85\times&space;90}=6000$

Hence , the salary of the officer is Rs.6000

Answer

Suppose total votes polled is x

$\inline&space;\Rightarrow$ $\inline&space;\frac{62x}{100}=\frac{38x}{100}+192$

$\inline&space;\Rightarrow&space;\frac{62x}{100}-\frac{38x}{100}=192$

$\inline&space;\Rightarrow&space;\frac{24x}{100}=192\Rightarrow&space;x=800$
