- 1. Numerical Reasoning
- 2. Problem on Numbers
- 3. Problems on NumbersArithmetic Progression: The nth term of A.P. is given by Tn = a + (n – 1)d Sum of n terms of A.P S = n/2 *[2a+(n-1)d)]Geometrical Progression: Tn = arn – 1. Sn = a(rn – 1) / (r-1)
- 4. Basic Formulae1. ( a+b)2 = a2 + b2 + 2ab2. (a-b)2 = a2 +b2 -2ab3. ( a+b)2 - (a – b)2 = 4ab4. (a+b)2 + (a – b)2 = 2 (a2 +b2)5. (a2 – b2) = (a+b) (a-b)6. (a+b+c)2 =a2 +b2 +c2 + 2(ab +bc+ca)7. (a3 +b3) = ( a+b) (a2 –ab +b2)8. (a3 –b3) = (a-b) (a2 +ab + b2)
- 5. Problem - 1A 2 digit number is 3 times the sum of its digitsif 45 is added to the number. Its digits areinterchanged. The sum of digits of the numberis?
- 6. SolutionThe number is 3 times the sum of its digits45 is added = 4 +5 = 9So, common numbers in 3 and 9th table.9, 18, 27, 36, 45….27 + 45 = 722 + 7 = 9 or 4 + 5 = 9
- 7. Problem - 2A number when divided by 119 leaves aremainder of 19. If it is divided by 17. It willleave a remainder of?
- 8. Solution= 19/17 = 2 remainder
- 9. Problem - 3A boy was asked to find the value of 3/8 of sum ofmoney instead of multiplying the sum by 3/8 hedivided it by 8/3 and then his answer by Rs.55.Find the correct answer?
- 10. Solution8/3 – 3/8 = 55/24 = 55/55/24 = 24
- 11. Problem - 4A man spends 2/5rd of his earning. 1/4th of theexpenditure goes to food, 1/5th on rent, 2/5th ontravel and rest on donations. If his total earningis Rs.5000, find his expenditure on donations?
- 12. Solution5000*2/5 = 2000Remaining amount has given as donation2000* (1/5 + 2/5 + ¼)Total amount = 200*17/20 = 17002000 – 1700 = 300
- 13. Problem - 5From a group of boys and girls 15 girls leave.There are then left, 2 boys for each girl. Afterthis 45 boys leave, there are then left 5 girls foreach boy, find the number of girls in thebeginning?
- 14. Solution15 girls leave = 2 boys for each girl45 boys leave = 5 girls fro 1 boyLet the boys be x; Girls = x/2 +15After the boys have left,No.of boys = x – 45 and girls = 5(x-45)x/2 = 5(x-45)X = 2(5x-22)X = 10x – 450X =5050/2 +15 =40
- 15. Problem - 6An organization purchased 80 chairs froRs.9700. For chairs of better quality they paidRs.140 each and for each of the lower gradechair they paid Rs.50 less. How many betterquality chairs did the organization buy?
- 16. SolutionBetter quality chairs = x;Lower quality = 80 –xPrice of better quality = Rs.140, Lower quality = 140-50 = 90140*x + 90(80-x) = 9700140x + 7200 – 90x = 970050x = 9700 – 7200;50x = 2500X = 50
- 17. Problem - 7A labour is engaged for 30 days, on the conditionthat Rs.50 will be paid for everyday he worksand Rs.15 will be deducted from his wages foreveryday he is absent from work. At the end of30 days he received Rs.850 in all. For how manydays did he wanted?
- 18. SolutionTotal wages = 30*50 = 1500 (without Absent)Wages received in 30 days = 850 (with Absent)Let the labourer work for x daysAbsent = 30 – x50x – (30-x)15 = 85050x -450 +15x = 85065x = 1300X = 1300/65 = 20 days
- 19. Problem - 8The rent is charged at Rs.50 per day for first 3days Rs.100 per day next 5 days, and 300 perday thereafter. Registration fee is 50 at thebeginning. If a person had paid Rs.1300 for hisstay how many days did he stay?
- 20. Solution3 days = 150 + 50 = 2005 days = 100*5 = 500 = 200 + 500 = 7001300 – 700 = 6002 days = 300*2 = 600= 5 + 3 + 2 = 10 days
- 21. Problem - 9In a school 20% of students are under the age of8 years. The number of girls above the age of 8years is 2/3 of the number of boys above the ageof 8 years and amount to 48. What is the totalnumber of students in the school?
- 22. SolutionGirls above 8 yrs = 48Boys above 8 yrs = 48 / 2/380% of students above 8 yrs = 48 + 72 = 120 80 120 20 x80x = 120*20X = 120*20/80 = 30Total No.of students = 120+30 = 150
- 23. Ratio and Proportion
- 24. Ratio and ProportionRatio : Relationship between two variables. =a:bProportion : Relationship between two ratios. =a:b::c:dProportion Calculation = a*d : b*c
- 25. Problem - 1The ratio of number of boys to that of girls in aschool is 3:2. If 20% boys and 25% of girls arescholarship holders, find the percentage of theschool students who are not scholarship holders?
- 26. SolutionLet the total number of students be 100Boys = 100*3/5 = 60Girls = 100*2/5 = 40S. holders = 60*20/100 = 12, non S. holders = 60 -12 = 48Girls s. holders = 40*25/100 = 10,Non s. holders = 40 – 10 = 30Students who do not have scholarship = 48 + 30 = 7878/100*100 = 78%
- 27. Problem - 2The cost of diamond varies as the square of itsweight. A diamond weighing 10 decigrams costsRs. 32000. Find the loss incurred when it breaksinto two pieces whose weights are in the ratio2:3?
- 28. Solution1st piece = 10*2/5 = 42nd piece = 10*3/5 = 6Cost of the diamond varies as square of its weight42 : 62 102 = 100k16k : 36k100k – 52 k = 48k(loss)100k = 32000; k = 32048*320 = 15360
- 29. Problem - 3The ratio of the first and second class faresbetween two railway stations 4 : 1 and the ratioof the number of passengers traveling by firstand second class is 1:40. If the total of Rs.1100is collected as fare from passengers of bothclasses what was the amount collected from firstclass passengers?
- 30. SolutionFare = 4 : 1Passengers traveling = 1 : 40Amount = No. pas * fare = 4*1 :10*1 = 4 : 40= 1:10Total amount = 1100.First class passengers‟ amount = 1*1100/11= 100
- 31. Problem - 4A vessel contains a mixture of water and milk inthe ratio 1:2 and another vessel contains themixture in the ratio 3:4. Taking 1 kg each fromboth mixtures a new mixture is prepared. Whatwill be the ratio of water and milk in the newmixture?
- 32. Solution1st vessel = water = 1/3 , milk = 2/32nd vessel = water = 3/7, milk = 4/7Water = 1/3 + 3/7 = 16/21Milk = 2/3 + 4/7 = 26/2116 : 26 = 8:13
