Q:

In a party there are male and female members. If 15 female quit then the number of females will become double the number of males. If 45 males quit no. of female becomes five times the number of males. Find the number of females ?

A) 175 B) 145
C) 165 D) 135

Answer:   A) 175



Explanation:

Let the number of males be 'M'
Let the number of females be 'F'
From the given conditions,
(F-15)=2M.....(i)
F=5(M-45).....(ii)
By solving the equations (1) & (2) we get M = 80
Then substitute M = 80 in (1)
F = 2M + 15
F = 2 x 80 + 15
=> F = 175
Therefore, number of males = 80 and females = 175 in the party.

Q:

Two numbers are such that the sum of twice the first number and thrice the second number is 36 and the sum of thrice the first number and twice the second number is 39. Find the difference between the numbers?

A) 15 B) 3
C) 9 D) 6
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 15

Explanation:

Let the required two numbers be a, b

From the given data,

2a + 3b = 36 .....(1)

3a + 2b = 39 .....(2)

Now, by solving 1 and 2 eqnts, we get

5a = 45

a = 9 ....(3)

Put (3) in (1), we get

2(9) + 3b = 36

=> 18 + 3b = 36

3b = 36 - 18

=> b = 18/3 = 6

 

Required, difference between the numbers = a + b = 9 + 6 = 15.

A) -4 (1/17) B) 5 (2/17)
C) -2 (1/17) D) 3 (3/17)
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) -4 (1/17)

Explanation:

Given fraction is 5 (2/7) - 3 (1/14) - 2 (1/14) - 1 (1/7) = ? + 3 (1/17) 

It can be written as 

(5 - 3 - 2 - 1) + (2/7 - 1/14 - 1/14 - 1/7) = ? +  3 (1/17) 

-1 + 0 - 3 (1/17) = ?
