Q:

Tea worth of Rs. 135/kg & Rs. 126/kg are mixed with a third variety in the ratio 1: 1 : 2. If the mixture is worth Rs. 153 per kg, the price of the third variety per kg will be____?

A) Rs. 169.50 B) Rs.1700
C) Rs. 175.50 D) Rs. 180
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Rs. 175.50

Explanation:

Since first second varieties are mixed in equal proportions, so their average price = Rs.(126+135)/2= Rs.130.50

So, Now the mixture is formed by mixing two varieties, one at Rs. 130.50 per kg and the other at say Rs. 'x' per kg in the ratio 2 : 2, i.e., 1 : 1. We have to find 'x'.

 

Cost of 1 kg tea of 1st kind         Cost of 1 kg tea of 2nd kind 

 

 

  

x-153/22.50 = 1  => x - 153 = 22.50  => x=175.50.

 Hence, price of the third variety = Rs.175.50 per kg.

Q:

If the diagonal of a rectangle is 17cm long and its perimeter is 46 cm. Find the area of the rectangle.

A) 110 B) 120
C) 130 D) 140
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 120

Explanation:

let length = x and breadth = y then  

2(x+y) = 46         =>   x+y = 23  

x²+y² = 17² = 289  

now (x+y)² = 23² 

=> x²+y²+2xy= 529 

=> 289+ 2xy = 529

=> xy = 120  

area = xy = 120 sq.cm
