A jogger wants to save 1/4 th of his jogging time. He should increase his speed by how much Let us assume that the jogger takes 4 ours for 12 KM. Now he will save 1/4 th so he will take 3 hours for 12 KM. His earlier speed was 12/4 = 3, but his new speed is 12/3 = 4. he increased his speed from 3 to 4 or 33% increase in his speed. Answer (you may assume other figures also but the answer will be the same).
A is an integer. Dividing 89 & 125 by A gives remainders 4 & 6 respectively. Find a ? Find HCF of (89-4) and (125-6) HCF of 85 and 119 is 17 answer = 17 answer
In a office work is distributed between p persons. If 1/8 members are absent then work increased for each person by what %. Suppose there are 560 units of work among 8 persons. Now there are only 7 persons so each person is doing 80 units of work (instead of 70 units of work). The work increased by : 10 on 70 10/70*100 = 14.29% answer
120, 315, 300, 345, ? We can write these numbers as multiples of 15 : 8, 21,20,23 the next digit should be :
RULE : a^0 = 1 IF ZERO IS PUT AS POWER OF ANY NUMBER, IT WILL BECOME 1. THUS IF YOU PUT POWER OF ZERO ON 100000, IT WILL BE EQUAL TO 1.
RULE : (a/b)^n = a^n / b^n IF YOU TAKE UP POWER OVER A FRACTION, YOU CAN PUT IT SEPARATELY ALSO. EXAMPLE : (2/3) ^3 = 8/27 ANSWER
(27)^2/3 =? 1. FIRST WE PUT 27 AS 3^3 BECAUSE WE KNOW 3*3*3 = 27 = (3^3)2/3 WE CAN CANCEL POWR OF 3 3^2 = 9. ANSWER
(1024)^-4/5 =? 1. FIRST PUT 1024 AS 2^X, WE KNOW THAT 2*2*2*2*2..... (TILL 10) = 1024 SO WE CAN WRITE : 1024 = 2^10 = 4^5 (4^5)-4/5 (NOW CANCEL 5) = (4)-4= 1/(4)4 (ANY POWER IN NEGATIVE WILL PUT THE NUMERATOR INTO DENOMINATOR) = 1/256.
If 2^(x-1)+ 2^(x+1) = 256 then find the value of x .(X-1) * (X+1) = (X^2 – 1) So we can write it as : =2^(x^2-1) = 256 now factorise 256 = 2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2=2^8 2^(x^2 -1) = 2^8 or X^2 = 9 X = 3 answer
Simplify : 125^(2/3) * 25^(1/2)*5*5^(1/2) 125^(2/3) = (5^3)^(2/3) 3 gets cancelled so : 5^2 = 25 =5*5 we can write it as : 5*5*5*5*5^(1/2) =5^4 * 5^ (½) (add the two powers, when there is multiplication of their base) =5^(9/2) answer
What is the compounded ratio of : 4:9, duplicate ratio of 3:4, triplicate ratio of 2:3 and 9:7? Duplicate ratio of 3:4 =9:16 (square of 3 and 4 respectively) triplicate ratio of 2:3 = 8:27 (take cube of 2 & 3 respectively). Now let us compound (multiply all the X and Y individuallY ) them : X =4*9*8*9 = 2592 Y = 9*16*27*7=27216 their ratio is 1: 10.5 or 2:21 answer
WHAT IS A FUNCTION It is a rule. It says that given a value of X what will be the value of f(x). here F is not multiplied to X, but it only shows function of X. Itis also written as Y = f(x)
What are the types of functions ? There are many classifications : 1. even and odd functions 2.
What is inverse function ? Inverse function puts the relation of Y to X (function puts the relation of X to Y). Thus if function = convert celsius to feirenheit F(c) = 9/5 (C+32) now inveserse function will be to convert feirehheit into celcius : f(f) = 5/9 (f-32)
What is even function ? When the outcome of f(x) = f(-x), it is called even function. Example: F(x) = X^2+x^4 suppose X is 2, f(x) = 20 we get the same outcome in the case of f(-2)
What is odd function ? When the outcome of f(x) = -f(-x), it is called even function. Example: F(x) = X^3+x^5 suppose X is 2, f(x) = 40, but f(-2) = -40 thus we can say that f(x)=-f(-x) answer
What is composite function ? If Y = f(x) and X = g(u), then we have function of function. This is called composite function. Suppose first function says that Y = X^2 and it is given than X = Z^2, and Z = 2 then Y = 16 thus this is composite function. Answer
What is limit? As X approaches certain value it is called limit example : x = 1.7 and it approaches 1.8 thus f(x)=2x = 3.6 (it approaches 3.6 answer
A train 140 m long running at 72 kmph.In how much time will it pass a platform 260m long. Total distance to cover = 140+260 = 400 time = distance / speed speed in meters per second = 72 *5/18 = 20 meters per second time = 400/20 = 20 seconds answer
A man is standing on a railway bridge which is 180 m.He finds that a train crosses the bridge in 20 seconds but himself in 8 sec. Find the length of the train and its sppeed Let us assume the length of train = X the speed of train = x meters/8 180 meters are covered by train in (20-8) seconds 180/12 = 15 meters per second. Thus the length of train is : 15*8 = 120 meters. Answer
A train 150m long is running with a speed of 54 Km per hour. In what time will it pass a man who is running at a speed of 9 km ph in the same direction in which the train is going Speed of train = 54 * 5/18 = 15 meters per second speed of mann = 9 * 5/18 = 2.5 meters per second distance to cover = 150 time = 150/(15-2.5) =12 seconds answer
A train 220m long is running with a speed of 59 k m ph ..In what time will it pass a man who is running at 4 kmph in the direction opposite to that in which train is going. Distance to cover = 220 meters speed = 59+4 = 63 km per hour. In meters per second = 63*5/18 = 17.5 meters per second. Time required : 220/17.5 =12.57 seconds. Answer
Two trains 137m and 163m in length are running towards each other on parallel lines,one at the rate of 42kmph & another at 48 mph.In wht time will they be clear of each other from the moment they meet. Distance to cover 137+163 = 300 meters speed = 42+48 = 90 km per hour speed in meters per second = 90 * 5/18 = 25 meters per second time required = 300/25 = 12 seconds answer
A train running at 54 kmph takes 20 sec to pass a platform. Next it takes 12 sec to pass a man walking at 6kmph in the same direction in which the train is going.Find length of the train and length of platform Solution : Train v/s man speed = 54 -6 = 48 km per hour speed in m/s =48 * 5/18 = 13.33 m / s length of train = 12*13.33 = 159.6 meters speed for platform =54*5/18 = 15 m / s length of platform+ train = 20*15 = 300 length of platform = 300 – 159 = 140 meters approx.
A man sitting in a train which is travelling at 50mph observes that a goods train travelling in opposite direction takes 9 sec to pass him .If the goods train is 150m long find its speed Solution : - Distance travelled = 150 speed =150/9 = 16.66 meters per second or 16.66 * 18/5 = 60 km per hour approx. Thus the speed of goods train is 60-50 = 10 km per hour. Answer
Two trains are moving in the same direction at 65kmph and 47kmph. The faster train crosses a man in slower train in18sec.the length of the faster train is Solution : = When the trains are going in same direction, we take difference of their speed. 65-47 =18 km per hour or 5 meters per second distance travelled =(time 18 seconds * speed 5 meters per second) = 18 * 5 = 90 meters. Thus the length of faster train is 90 meters. Answer
A train overtakes two persons who are walking in the same direction in which the train is going at the rate of 2kmph and 4kmph and passes them completely in 9 sec and 10 sec respectively. The length of train is Solution : - let us assume the speed of train to be X. (X-2) * 9/3600 = (X-4) *10/3600 9X – 18 = 10X – 40 X=22 km per hour. thus distance travelled = (22-4) * 5/18 = 5 m/s time=10 seconds so length of train = 5*10 = 50 meters. Answer
Two stations A & B are 110 km apart on a straight line. One train starts from A at 7am and travels towards B at 20kmph. Another train starts from B at 8am an travels toward A at a speed of 25kmph.At what time will they meet From 7 am to 8 am only A is travelling. It would travel 20 km. Now 90 km is to be covered. 90 / (20+25) =2 hours so at 10 am they will meet.
A train travelling at 48kmph completely crosses another train having half its length an travelling inopposite direction at 42kmph in12 sec.It also passes a railway platform in 45sec.the length of platform is Distance by 2 trains = (48+42) = 90 or 25 m/s 25 * 12=300 meters. So the length of train is 200 meters. Platform : 48 * 5/18 =13.33 m/ s 45*13.33 = 600 so length of platform = 600-200=400 meters. Answer
Find the time taken by a train 180m long,running at 72kmph in crossing an electric pole Speed of train = 72 * 5/18 = 20 m / s time required = 180/20 = 6 seconds. Answer
