Q:

The compounded ratio of (2 : 3), (6: 11) and (11 :2) is

A) 1:2 B) 2:1
C) 11:24 D) 36:121

Answer:   B) 2:1



Explanation:

Compounded Ratio :: When we compound two or more ratio's with each other through product or multiplication, the result is simply a compound ratio.

Thus, the product of two or more ratios; i.e, ab:cd is a ratio compounded of the simple ratios a:c and b:d.

 

Required compounded ratio = (2/3 x 6/11 x 11/2) = 2/1. 

Q:

Rice worth Rs. 126 per kg and Rs. 135 per kg are mixed with a third variety in the ratio 1 : 1 : 2. If the mixture is worth Rs. 153 per kg, then the price of third variety of rice per kg?

= 126m + 135m + 2pm = 153 x 4m

=> 2p = 351

p = 175.5 / kg

Q:

Two vessel P and Q contain milk and water in ratio 3 : 2 and 5 : 3 respectively. If 10 liters of the mixture is removed from vessels P and poured in vessel Q then ratio of milk to water in vessel Q becomes 8 : 5. Find the initial quantity of water in vessel Q.

A) 10 lit B) 6 lit
C) 16 lit D) 12 lit
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 10 lit

Explanation:

Given ratio of initial mixture of milk and water in Q = 5 : 3

Let the initial quantity of mixture in vessel Q = 8x

Let quantity of Milk = 5x and

Let quantity of water = 3x

According to the question,

5x + 10 x 353x + 10 x 25  = 85

=> 25x + 30 = 24x + 32

=> x = 2

Required Initial quantity of milk = 5x = 5 x 2 = 10 lit.

Average number of pencils & Pens = 3x + 2x2 = 180

5x = 360

=> x = 72


Hence, the number of pencils = 2x = 72 x 2 = 144.
