11% of a number exceeds 7% of the same by 18, then What is the number?
• • • • As we can see the difference is (11-7) = 4 4% is equal to 18 Thus 100% should be equal to : 18/4 * 100 = 450 answer.

If the numerator of a fraction is increased by 20% and its denominator is decreased by 10%, the fraction becomes
• Let us assume the numerator has become : 120 • Similarly, the denominator has become 90. • Thus the new fraction is : 4/3 of the previous fraction. Answer.

The average weight of a group of boys and girls is 38 kg. average weight of the boys is 42 kg, and that of the girls is 33kg. If the number of boys is 25, find the number of girls?
• 38 is the mid point, so take difference from both the numbers. We get (42-38) = 4 and (38-33) = 5. thus the ratio of boys and girls is 5: 4. Thus the number of girls is 4/5*25= 20 answer.

The cost of carpeting a room 15 metres long with a carpet 75 cm wide at 30 paise per metre is Rs. 36. The breadth of the room is
• Area of room = length * bredth • Total length of carpet : 36/.3 = 120 meters • Total area of carpet used :=.75 * 120= 90 sqmeters. • Thus width of the room = 90/15= 6 meters. Answer. • (length = 15, width = 6 meters). Answer.

A room 5.44 m x 3.74 m is to be paved with square tiles. The least number of tiles required to cover the floor is
• Let us find HCF 544 and 374. for this divide 544 by 374, we get remainder of 170, now divide 374 by 170, we get 34 as remainder, now divide 170 by 34, we get 0 as remainder. Thus one side of tile should be 34 cm. the number of tiles is (544*374)/ (34*34) = 176 answer.
