Tea worth Rs 120 & 130 per Kg are mixed with a third variety in the ratio 1:1:2. If the mixture is worth Rs 150 per Kg , the price of the third variety per Kg will be?
SOLUTION Let us assume that we use 1kg of first two varieties and 2 kg of 3 rd variety. Total is 4 kg. So the total price is : 150*4 = 600 price paide for 1 st two varieties : (120+130) = 250 price paid for 3 rd variety : 600-250 = 350 Price per kg for 3 rd variety : 175 per kg.
A bill for Rs.6000 is drawn on July 14 at 5 months . It is discounted on 5th October at 10%.Find the bankers discount true discount, bankers gain and the money that the holder of the bill receives. Due date of bill : 17 december interest for period (17 dec – 5 oct) = 73 days interst : 6000*73/365 * 10/100 = 120 this is banker's discount, the bank will give 5880 (money the holder will get ) formula for present value : 6000 * 100/ (100+rt) = 6000 *100/102 =5882.35 true discount is 117.65 answer
In one hour a boat goes 11 km with the stream and 5 km against the stream. The speed of the boat in still water is? The speed in still water is simple average of the two speeds. So it is ½ ( 11+5) = 8 Km. So the speed of boat in still water is 8 km per hour.
A boat can travel with a speed of 13 kmph in still water. if the speed of stream is 4 kmph,find the time taken by the boat to go 68 km downstream? In downstream the speed of boat and stream will add up. 13+4 = 17 km per hour. Thus 68/17 = 4 hours. The boat will take 4 ours to cover a distance of 68 km downstream. Answer
A boat takes 19 hrs for travelling downstream from point A to point B. And coming back to a point C midway between A and B. if the velocity of the sream is 4 kmph . and the speed of the boat in still water is 14 kmph. what is the distence between A and B? The boat initially travelled at (14+4) = 18 km per hour. Then it travelled at (14-4) = 10 km per hour. Let us assume distance from A to B to be 2X. So it has travelled : 2x/18 + x/10 = 19 38X = 3420 x= 3420/38 = 90 so distance = 180 ans.
A boat takes 90 min less to travel 36 miles downstream then to travel the same distence upstream. if the speed of the boat in still water is 10 mph . the speed of the stream is : 90 minute = 1.5 hours Let us assume the speed of stream = x 36/ (10-x) – 36/ (10+x) = 1.5 so X = 2.
A can contains a mixture of two liquids A and B in the ratio 7:5 when 9 liters of mixture are drawn off and the can is filled with B,the ratio of A and B becomes 7:9. How many liters of liquid A was contained by the can initially? Total quantity is same before and after = X. The only change is in the ratio. 9 liters are taken out in ratio : 7:5, thus 9*7/12 = 5.25 is A and 3.75 is B. We can write it as : 5/12 X + (9-3.75) = 9/16 X 5/12X -9/16X = -5.25 -7/48X = -5.25 or X = 360 the original quantity of A = 360 * 7/12 = 210 answer
.One quantity of wheat at Rs 9.30 per Kg are mixed with another quality at a certain rate in the ratio 8:7. If the mixture so formed be worth Rs 10 per Kg ,what is the rate per Kg of the second quality of wheat? Let us assume that the two types of wheat is mixed 8Kg and 7Kg respectively – total is 15 kg. Total cost : 15*10 = 150. Price paid for 1 st type : 9.3*8 = 74.4 price paid for 2 nd : 150 – 74.4 = 75.6 divide it by 7 to get price of 2 nd : 75.6 / 7 = 10.8 answer
Tea worth Rs 120 and 130 per Kg are mixed with a third variety in the ratio 1:1:2. If the mixture is worth Rs 150 per Kg ,the price of the third variety per Kg will be? We have taken 1 kg of 1st, 1kg of 2 nd and 2kg of 3rd. Total = 4 kg. Thus total price = 150*4 = 600. price paid on 1 st and 2 nd = 250. price paid on 3 rd : 600-250 = 350 price per kg = 350/2 = 175 per kg. Answer
A vessel is filled with liquid,3 parts of which are water and 5 parts syrup. How much of the mixture must be drawn off and replaced with water so that the mixture may be half water and half syrup? The ratio of water and syrup is 3:5. total is 8. we want them to be equal : 4:4. thus we want syrup to be 4. now syrup is 5. thus we have to take 1 out of 5. Thus the ratio in which mixture has to be drawn out is 1/5. thus 8 * 1/5 = 1.6 must be drawn out, which in 3:5 is : .6 and 1 thus after drawing, the water and syrup is 2.4 and 4. add 1.6 water again, and it is 4:4. so 1/5 th of the mixture should be drawn off. Answer.
The price of an article including the sales tax is Rs 616.The rate of sales tax is 10%,if the shopkeeper has made a profit of 12%,then the cost price of the article is? Let us assume cost = 100 add profit(+12) = 112 add sales tax (11.2) = 123.2 thus 100/123.2 * 616 = cost = 500 answer
By selling 33m of cloth ,one gains the selling price of 11m.Find the gain percent? Suppose sale price is 1 per meter. Total sale price = 33 profit = 11 cost = 33-11 = 22 thus profit is : 11/22 * 100 = 50% of cost. Answer

How many times does the hands of a clock make right angle? Let us take from 6 am to 6 pm. At 6.15 it is almost right angle (not exact), similarly at about 6.45 also there is a right angle. Thus we have 2 occasions between 6 and 7. We should have 12 hours so 24 occasions when it can be in right angle. But between 9 to 10 we have only 1 such occasion (9.30), again from 3 to 4, we have only one such case. Thus in 12 hours we have only 22 right angles. Answer
Why is it so? We can understand that by the time the minute hand covers 55 minutes, there is one hour (60 minutes). Thus there is a gap of 5 minutes. We can see that at times like 9 and 3 there is a problem. 9 am is counted in 8 to 9 (8.25 and 8.59) to count right angle. And so is the case with 3 pm). If it is asked what is the exact time of right angle, use 60/11 as a formula to find exact time.
How many times do we have a straight angle between two hands of a clock from 6 am to 6 pm in a day? Ideally it should be 12 (but it will not be 12) . start at 6, 7.05, 8.10, 9.15, 10.20, 11.25, 12.30, 1.35, 2.40, 3.45, 4.50, 5.55, 6. thus we have 13 such occasions when we have straight angle.
A watch which gains uniformly,is 5 min,slow at 8 o'clock in the morning on sunday and it is 5 min.48 sec.fast at 8 p.m on the following sunday. when was it correct? The watch has actually covered 10 min. 48 sec. In a span of 180 hours. We want to know about the exact time when it had crossed only 5 minutes. So solve it using following formula : 5/ 10.8 (180) = 82.8 thus exact time is : 82/24 = 3 day + 10 hours Wednesday : 6 pm + 48 minutes. Answer
Explanation Actually 180 is hours (from 8am to 8pm on next Sunday). Actually 82.8 is in hours, to convert it into days, we have devided 82/24, we get 3 rd day + 10 hours. Why did we use : 10. 8 : note: we converted 10.48 in decimal : 48/60 = .8 so it was 10.8

A and B run opposite to an elevator. The ratio of the speed of elevator, A and B is : 1:6:3 Elevator is going up, but A and B are coming down. A takes 1 minute and B takes 2.5 minutes to come down. How much time will they take if elevator was not moving? If elevator is not moving, they will take less time. Look at the speed ratios. A will take 1/6 time less – so he will take 60 seconds – 10 seconds= 50 seconds and B will take 1/3 time less, so he will take : 150 seconds – (150*1/3) = = 100 seconds. Answer. 2.5 minutes = 150 seconds
Ajay has to pay to Mayank Rs. 1100 after 1 year. What should he pay now and settle the accounts? Rate of interest is 10% We have to find the present value of 1100 formula of present value is (Amount * 100)/ (100 + rate of interest * no. Of years) = (1100 * 100) / (100 +100) = 1000
A, B,C, & D start a game. In the beginning all of them had equal amount. The winner has to collect half the amount of all other players. In the first round C wins. In the 2 nd round B wins and in the 3 rd round B again wins. At this time, their scores are : A : 50, B : 1250, C : 250 D : ? What was the score of each of these in the beginning ? The score of D should be equal to that of A = 50. Now add the score of all of these, we get 1600. Thus each of these should have score of 1600/4 = 400 answer
A thief steels a necklace and runs @ 10 Km per hour at 3 pm. After 18 minutes, a policeman starts chasing him @ 15 km per hour. Whenwill the thief be caught? At the speed of 10, the thief would have run 10 *18/60 = 3 Km. So policeman has to chase him for this distance to start : 3 / (15-10) * 1/60 =

The side towards length : 20*10 = 200 the side towards width : 10*10 = 100 total 4 walls (200*2+100*2 )=600 ft. Total payment : 600*100=Rs. 60000 ans.
Rishi has put his icecream in a rectangular bowl of 10*20 inch with depth of 5 inch. Now he wants to make a round ball out of this. What will be the diameter of this ball? Total quantity of icecream = 10*20*5 = 1000 cubic inch volume of sphere : = 4/3*pi*radius^3 = 4/3 22/7*r*r*r = 1000 r= cubic root of (21000/88) r= 6.5 approx. Or diameter= 13 inch approx. Answer
In a typcial coding exercise, a person says that RAM= 32, and SITA= 49, what will be KRISHNA In that code? RAM = R= 18, A=1, M = 13 so adding these RAM = 32 SITA, S=19, I=9, T=20,A=1 Adding these we get 49, so KRISHNA should be : K=11,R=18,I=9,S=19,H=8,N=14,A=1 TOTAL = 80 ANSWER
If Earth:Moon, and Sun:mercury, what should be X: Titan The Moon rotates round the Earth, Mercury rotates round the Sun, Titan rotates round the Saturn. So X = Saturn.
Rishi has a white cube of 5 inch dimensions. He cuts it to make smaller cubes of 1 inch each. Before this he dips the cube to colour one of its dimension as red. Now how many cubes will have red as a colour on one side? The cube is cut into dimension of 1 inch each. Thus (5*5*5)/(1*1*1) = 125 thus we have now total 125 small cubes. Out of these 125, 25 cubes are such which have one dimension as red.
A group leader puts his group in rows and columns. He finds that the number of rows and columns are equal. He finds that 20 more persons have to come. If he puts these 20 persons, there is one more complete row or one more column. What is the number of persons in his group? It is clear that there are 20 rows and 20 columns, so total number of persons is 400. add 20 more persons to it, you get : 20*20 = 400 + 20 = 420 answer
Mayank has some money in his pocket. He gives me half of this. Now he spends 75% of the remaining on purchasing a shoe. He then realises that he has to buy a T shirt also. So he spends 80% of the remaining on a T-shirt. He is now thirsty and so spends 20% on a mineral water bottle. He is left with Rs. 40. How much did he have in the beginning? Start from last, multiply each value by 100/ (100-what % is spent) : 40*100/80 = 50 50*100/20 = 250 250*100/25 = 1000 1000*100/50 = 2000 thus he had 2000 in the beginning
Mayank Bothra has prepared a software, which puts the letters in alphabetic order, but one at a time in 1 second. How much time will the software take to put T I G E R in ascending or descending order? T I G E R first of all E will be put in the beginning then G will be put after E. Then I will be put after G and then R will be put before T. Total time : 4 seconds. In descending order : 1 second only (as only R has to be put after T)
What is BODMAS? B= BRACKET O = OF D=DIVISION M=MULTIPLY A = ADDITION S=SUBTRACT apply these in this sequence only. So 9+9/9-2*1of (2-3*1/3) = 9+1-2= 8
Which is bigger : 12/13 14/16 16/19 23/29 let us compare 12/13 and 14/16, logically 12/13 should be bigger (gap between 13 and 12 is only 1). still : cross multiply : 12*16 and 13*14 , which is bigger? = 12*16 is bigger so 12/13 is bigger. Similarly we have to compare all the values and find the biggest number.
What will come next in the series : ANW, DKT, GFQ, ....? The series is : A – D – G so next digit should be : J (gap of + 2) next series is : N-K-F so next : Y (increasing gap -2,-4,-6) next series : W-T-Q = N (gap of -2) so answer : JYN answer
A goes from X to Y at 10 am and will reach at 12 and B goes from Y to X at 9 and will reach at 12. when will they cross each other? A travels for 2hours, B for 3 hours. Let us assume that the distance is (2*3) = 6 KM. A travels @ 3 KM per hour and B @ 2 km per hour. At 9 B starts, till 10 he covers 2 KM. Now gap between A and B is 4 Km. Divide 4 by (2+3) = 4/5 = .8 , so they will meet at 10 + (.8 * 60) = 48 minutes. So They wil meet at 10 + 48 min. Ans
A puts an item at 10% discount, before doing this he had actually increased the marked price by 10%, what is the change in his revenue? Let us assume that the earlier marked price is 100. add 10% = 110, now A reduces it by 10% (10% discount on marked price) so he gets 110-11 = 99 thus there is 1% reduction in his revenue or (10% * 10% = 1%)
A takes up 2 types of rice – one at 10 per kg and another at 50 per kg, how should he mix these to get a profit of 20% when he sells them @ 30 per KG? Sale price is 30, so cost should be 30*100/120 = 25 in order to get the ratio of mixture, let us deduct 25 from 10 and 50, we get : 15 and 25, now reverse these ratio : 25:15 or 5:3, thus rice of the rate 10 should be 5/(5+3) = 5/8 and rice of rate 50 should be 3/8 or their ratio should be 5:3 answer.
A and B are partners and share profit in the capital ratio of 3:2, however, A withdraws his half of the money after 5 months, and B doubles his money after 8 months, what is the final profit sharing ratio? For first six months, the capitals are in the ratio of 3:2, but now there is some change. A withdraws 1.5 and after 2 more months, B adds 2 more. Thus (3*6months + 1.5*6months) : (2*8 months + 4*4months) 27: 32 answer
A:B = 2:3, C:D = 3:4, B:D = 3:2, what is A:C? In A:B and B:D, we have B common, so A:B:D = 2:3:2 We know that C:D is 3:4, so keep the value of D as 4, thus new ratio is : A:B:C:D = 4:6:3:4 thus A:C = 4:3 answer
A can complete a work in 20 days and B can do the same work in 30 days. Both work together for 1 day and get 500 as total amount, how should this money be divided between A and B? A: B should be 30:20 (reverse of 20:30 – the number of days taken by them in doing the work). Thus A should get : 300 and B 200 answer.
A,B,C start a work together. A can do it alone in 20, B in 30 and C in 40 days, in how many days will they finish the work? A's one day work : 1/20, B's one day's work : 1/30 and C's one day's work : 1/40, add them : 1/20 + 1/30 + 1/40 (6+4+3)/120 = 13/120 , now reverse it : 120/13 = 9.2 days or 10 days approx.
There are 720 students in an examination, out of them, 1/3 rd fail in English, 1/4 th fail in Mathematics, 1/8 th fail in both the paper. How many dont fail in any paper? Out of 720, 240 fail in English, and 180 fail in Mathematics and 90 fail in both the paper. Thus the total number of students who have failed in either paper : 240+180 – 90 = 330 thus the students who have not failed in any paper is : 720 – 330 = 390 answer
Kapil is 4 th from top and 106 th from bottom. How many students are there in total ? There are three students before Kapil, 105 below him and he himself so : 3+105+1 = 109 or 4+106 – 1 = 109 answer
A and B have salary in the ratio of 10:11, but their savings are in the ratio : 3:7, but now their salaries increase by 100% each. If earlier their total savings was Rs. 2100, what is their new savings, if they dont change their expenditure and they spend equal amounts? Their total savings : 2100, so A saves 3/10 *2100 = 630 and B saves : 7/10 * 2100 = 1470 difference of their savings is : 840, so A should earn 840 *10 = 8400 and spend (8400-630) = 7770 and B should earn 9240 and save (9240-1470) = 7770. thus their new incomes are : 16800 and 18480 and new savings are : (16800 – 7770) = 9030 and (18480-7770) = 10710 answer
A and B run a race and A gives B a start of 100 meters in 1000 meter race, still A wins by 1 second or 1 meters. What is the ratio of their speeds? B takes 1 second to cover 1 meters, so his speed is 3600 meters per KM or 3.6 km per hour. He has actually run 900 meters only. He should take 900/3600*60 = 15 minutes A has run 1000 meters in 14 minutes and 59 seconds. So his speed is 40 KM per hour approx. Thus the ratio of their speed is 40:36 or 10:9 answer
What is 10% of 30% of 1500? 30% of 1500 = 450 now 10% of 450 = 45 so answer is 45
Which is more 3^1/3 or 4^1/4? Let us take the two powers : 1/3 and 1/4, let us now get same powers. LCM of 3,4 is 12, so let us multiply them by 4/4 and 3/3, we get : 4/12 and 3/12. we can now solve the numerator powers : so answer is : 81^1/12 and 64^1/12 now we can see that 81^1/12 is bigger, so the answer is 3^1/3 is bigger than 4^1/4
Ravi sees a photo and says that “this is the photo of younger son of the brother of the grandson of the father of the brother of the mother of my sister”, whose photo was it? Answer : This is the photo of nephew of Ravi (son of Ravi's cousin) answer In order to solve such questions, start from last, and try to solve each relationship in simple terms or prepare a tree diagram from these statements. For example, : brother of the mother of my sister = maternal uncle – so similarly replace all these sentences.
