Q:

# Alloy A contains 40% gold and 60% silver. Alloy B contains 35% gold and 40% silver and 25% copper. Alloys A and B  are mixed in the ratio of 1:4 .What is the ratio of gold and silver in the newly formed alloy is?

 A) 20% and 30% B) 36% and 44% C) 25% and 35% D) 49% and 36%

Explanation:

Assume the weight of alloy a is 100 kg

$\inline&space;\fn_jvn&space;\therefore$  The weight of alloy B is 400kg

$\inline&space;\fn_jvn&space;\therefore$               Gold          silver         copper

A       40kg          60kg          0kg

B      140kg         160kg        100kg

total    180kg          220kg        100kg

$\inline&space;\fn_jvn&space;\therefore$ Ratio of gold and silver in new alloy =$\inline&space;\fn_jvn&space;\frac{180}{500}:\frac{200}{500}$

= 36% :44%

Q:

If k : l = 4 : 3 and l : m = 5 : 3, then find k : l : m ?

 A) 18 : 24 : 11 B) 9 : 15 : 1 C) 20 : 15 : 9 D) 21 : 7 : 3

Explanation:

Given k : l = 4 : 3
l : m = 5 : 3

Then k : l : m = 20 : 15 : 9

Q:

A sum is divided among K, L and M in such a way that for each rupee K gets, L gets 45 paisa and M gets 30 paisa. If the share of L is Rs. 27,  what is the total amount  ?

 A) Rs. 159 B) Rs. 96 C) Rs. 147 D) Rs. 105

Explanation:

K : L : M = 100 : 45 : 30
= 20 : 9 : 6

Given L share is 27

=> 9  ------  27
35 ------  ?

=> 105

Q:

What is the equivalent compound ratio of 5:6::7:10::6:5  ?

 A) 7 : 9 B) 9 : 7 C) 7 : 4 D) 7 : 10

Explanation:

Given 5:6 :: 7:10 :: 6:5

We know that compound ratio is calculated as
a:b :: c:d :: e:f
(axcxe):(bxdxf)

=> (5x7x6):(6x10x5)
=> (210):(300)
= 7:10

Q:

The incomes of two persons A and B are in the ratio 3:4. If each saves Rs.100 per month, the ratio of their expenditures is 1:2. Find their incomes  ?

 A) 200, 400 B) 100, 300 C) 100, 200 D) 150, 200

Explanation:

The incomes of A and B be 3P and 4P.

Expenditures = Income - Savings

(3P - 100) and (4P - 100)

The ratio of their expenditure = 1:2

(3P - 100):(4P - 100) = 1:2

2P = 100 => P = 50

Their incomes = 150, 200
